I haven’t tried too many of 100% Pure’s products but I’ve always heard great things about them. Recently when I was in the market for a new blush I went to the Big Carrot, one of my fave places to shop for natural & eco-friendly cosmetics. Candy Blush caught my eye & trying the tester out on my arm it looked nice on my skintone.  In the pan it looks like it might be too bright pink. This blush is vividly pigmented. Use it sparingly. I put on a bit too much once & looked a bit like Raggedy Anne with two bright pink spots on my face. It was easily corrected though, with a bit of mineral foundation & blending to tone it down.

Besides the vivid pigmentation, the blush itself feels nicely milled. It goes on smoothly as well.  A little bit goes a long way. When I use this blush sparingly it gives a really nice pinkish flush to my face with a subtle shimmer. It also didn’t make me break out in blemishes. A win in my book. My only criticism about it is: it doesn’t travel well. I dropped it on the floor by accident & it shattered in its pan. So I just emptied the pan into a glass jar & I’ve been using it as a loose powder blush ever since.
