La Femme Blushes Review & Swatches

Top, Left-Right: Terracota, Russet, Pink, Peach Sparkle, Fuschia.
Bottom, Left-Right: Red, Magenta, Redwood, Coral, Brick Red.
I came across these blushes because i had watched a video on youtube by the wonderful Gossmakeupartist and when hearing his reviews, i knew i wanted to try them!

La Femme blushes aren't very easy to get hold of in the UK and i know Genie Cosmetics sell them, however they don't have all the colours.

I decided to get mine from the USA and i purchased them for $2.50! Yes, you read that correctly! I only purchased 10 blushes, as i didn't want to get stuck with a hefty duty fee.

The pigmentation on these blushes are INSANE! These blushes come in both matte and shimmer, however the shimmer blushes are very subtle and doesn't overpower the blush.

There are about forty shades to choose from, and it was a very difficult choice to make, as they all seemed beautiful.

You hardly need any product at all, as the colour pay off is incredible. I apply these blushes with a MAC 187 brush, just because it picks up the right amount of product and is easy to stiple the colour onto the cheeks.

They wear extremely well and i personally think this is due to the rich pigmentation of the product. The only downside is the texture is a tiny bit powdery, so when you put your brush into the blush, there is excess powder left on the pan. I always tap of the excess from my brush, 'cos you don't want to end up looking like a clown!

Overall, i am so pleased with these blushes and colours. The price you pay can not be beaten because the quality is outstanding! I will definitely be purchasing more for my makeup kit!

La Femme blushes can be purchased from Makeup Mania (USA) HERE or from Genie Cosmetics (UK) HERE

Have any of you tried La Femme blushes? What do you think?


  1. I've got 6 of these. Manadarin Red - stunningly gorgeous and my all time favorite, would look great on your skin tone - Mocha, Mystic Plum, Peach & Stormy Rose. They're all amazing. I'll very likely never buy another MAC blush in my life after trying these.

    I tried some of their eyeshadows as well. Some are ok, but I haven't yet found one I love. They're nowhere near as good as their blushes. But their matte Taupe eyeshadow makes a perfect contouring powder for light to medium skin tones. It's super easy to work with & never winds up looking like dirty streaks on the skin. I'll be getting a darker matte brown from them soon for the same purpose.

  2. Coral & Redwood both looks amazing for my skin tone! Buying those next! So stinking cheap!
