Sometimes there’s nothing like a little glow on your cheeks to brighten your face!

Having a glow and natural look explains how I felt wearing the majority of the new Jordana Cosmetics Color Tint Blush Stick shades; the brand has added six new hues to an existing line-up, and says this product is designed to give you a “healthy, natural glow” – these can also give you a dramatic look, depending on how much you want to blend out the color.

These blush sticks are compact; one fits in my fist. I can hold them all in my hand – really nice if you travel and want to minimize your makeup bag:

Here are arm swatches – I just ran the blush stick over my arm a couple times, I did not blend out. I’ll demonstrate how they are blended in by sharing “how I wore it” shots:

And … here’s how I wore them!

Baby Pink

Baby Pink is my favorite, a nice light pink shimmer.

Hot Hot Hot

Colors like Hot Hot Hot scare me in the container or on the pan because it’s a vibrant pink. But these blend out very easily over the liquid foundation I used, so I was able to tone down the brightness.

Rouge Romance

Rouge Romance is the darkest, a pop of berry color. I used this one on a night when I got all dolled up to go to a dinner/dance event. My makeup is more dramatic, so I used it a little darker. Unfortunately, since I did my makeup at night and I have crappy house lighting and no light box set up, this is the best I could do for a picture (and don’t worry, I took care of that smudge around the corner of my eye from my eye makeup. What a photo, lol). The difference between my pale skin and the blush isn’t AS stark as it is here.

Peach Nectar

Peach Nectar is a great coral shade in the tube and blends to a pretty peach color on the cheek. I loved this one, too.

Sunkissed gave me a natural blush, I loved this one too! It’s a nice neutral with pink leaning and slight shimmer.

Golden Sheen

Golden Sheen looks golden/bronzey shimmer in the tube but it pulled a little pink on my cheeks. I love this color, too.

Overall, I enjoyed using these blush sticks. I generally shy away from blush sticks because I don’t feel as skilled using them and blending them as I do with powder blushes. But I was surprised that these could be blended out so easily.

When I initially twisted them up, the blush stick on almost all of them broke as it twisted. Hard to explain, but it didn’t affect the product at all, just looked weird.

Also, a little bit of these goes a long way, and the best way I found to apply them was to dab a little on the apple of my cheek and blend out, and then add more dabs where I needed to along my cheek or in the apple to deepen color.

Obviously, these are going to pull different on various skin tones; they could blend out to a natural glow on me with very fair skint tone. I can see Sunkisssed and Golden Sheen looking amazing on darker skin tones, giving a highlighting shimmer!

I applied most of these before work in the morning and not removed until bedtime, and I still maintained color on my cheeks. While my foundation broke down on my nose and chin, the color did not on my cheeks. Here are ingredients, according to the website:

Ethyhexyl Palmitate, Talc, Mica, Silica, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Dimethicone, Magnesium Stearate, Zinc Oxide, Kaolin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance. +/- May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850).

The Color Tint Blush Sticks retail for $2.99, and you get .21 oz of product. They can be purchased from Jordana’s website here (new colors are already listed!). For the cheap price point, wear and ease of use, I would buy from the other six shades.

Have you used these before? Do any of the new shades pique your interest? I’d love to hear from you about Color Tint Blush Sticks!

    What is the no. For rough romance?

  • Mạîŗạ Aṋees

    What is the no. For baby pink shade?

    • BeautyJudy

      07! 🙂

      • Mạîŗạ Aṋees

        All right! ❤

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I really like these! So easy to use. Great swatches!

  • BTBAshley

    Wow! These pack a pigmented punch. Definitely worth hunting them down.

  • marciaf

    I think these look great. I love cream blush like this. But finding them in the store is impossible. My Walgreen’s has dropped the line and even when they had it, it was only pencils.

    • BeautyJudy

      Such a bummer Marcia!! I Would more easily buy them in stores, myself too!

  • robin

    I like them all, I just wish they were available in stores. I don’t like to buy makeup online unless I am really in love with the product and I don’t have a shot at all in buying in a store. I won’t be getting these, so listen up Jordana and start making them available in store!

    • BeautyJudy

      These were not marked as available in Walgreens which is disappointing. I will send your feedback to the brand when I send my coverage later this week!

    Did you set it w/ powder or just used it on its own?

    • BeautyJudy

      You can set with powder, and I would use under powder if you use a powder foundation. But I used a liquid foundation, blended these in and went about my day. I was also reviewing the foundation so I was staying away from a finishing powder!

    I’ve been trying these out and am so pleasantly surprised at the pigmentation!

    • BeautyJudy

      Me too! I can’t wait to check out your review!

  • cindyprimebeauty

    These look good.

    • BeautyJudy

      I’m pretty impressed!

  • http://beautylitfromwithin.blogspot.com Nidia Doherty

    I liked their original ones; I wonder why all of these broke! I like the red one.

    • BeautyJudy

      Not all of them broke and luckily it didn’t affect application! But yeah, it was weird, some cracked as I twisted them up!

    Rouge Romance is so pretty!

    • BeautyJudy

      It is and I wish my cheek swatch was better overall to show it!!!

  • erikatheicyone

    I’m feeling Peach Nectar. May have to pick that baby up.

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s one of my favs!!!

    Baby Pink looks fantastic on you! I’m partial in Golden Sheen myself 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks! I can see you rocking Golden Sheen for sure – and Sunkissed too!!!

      Agreed, I was impressed!

  • Anastasia

    These all look so nicely pigmented! I haven’t tried these or seen them in any stores around me, but I’ll be on the lookout.

    • BeautyJudy

      They really are! One of the cheaper drug store blush sticks but definitely not one to rule out!

  • http://www.geniabeme.com/ Eugenia

    I am interested to try these!!

    • BeautyJudy

      For $2.99, it’s easy to experiment! 🙂
