This blush palette I’m about to tell you about is only $4.99.
Spoiler: I find it to be as versatile and pigmented as my much more expensive cheek palettes (I’m looking at you, NARS Wanted I!).
OK, let’s get into the deets!
Profusion Cosmetics is a relatively new brand to Target. When I splurged at Ulta and Target right before I had my daughter, I picked up the Blush palette and the Strobe & Glow palette you see above.
The packaging admittedly feels cheap; it’s cardboard with a cheap plastic window on the front. But I’ve never had a problem with the palette staying closed, and at the end of the day, it’s what’s inside this palette that matters. I don’t need something to looks good on my dresser, I need something that performs!
Left to right: Bashful, Playful and Juicy
Left to right: Alive, Lush and Great.
Here I am wearing a couple different shades from the palette (please don’t ask me which ones…I can’t remember, lol!):
I believe for this look above I used the shade Great for my higher cheekbone and closer to my hairline, and Bashful on the apples of my cheeks blended into Great.
I get all day wear from these blushes, and the pigmentation is fantastic. They blend really nicely together too.
I used this palette for my “Fresh 48” photo shoot at the hospital when Josie was born. I use this palette ALL THE TIME.
For $4.99, this is one item at Target to toss in your cart that you don’t have to feel guilty about!
Have you tried Profusion? What about this palette?! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
