When a blush is good, it’s like artwork. Blush is having a moment right now, and we love a good jewel design, especially now since RMS’s new blushes came out earlier this year.
After using the ReDimension Hydra Powder Blushes through the summer, I can attest they’re top quality. It’s a talc-free formula, that goes on as an easy wash of color, no matter the brush. My favorite thing is the way the shades’ mica catches the light, like a highlighter at 15 percent. I also love the fact that it uses buriti, sunflower, and organic jojoba oils.
Everyone has their personal favorite colors, but my go-tos are “hanky panky” and “maiden’s blush.” The former is a plum that immediately makes my skin look perky and awake; the latter is a warm terracotta that gives “golden hour,” like a warmer version of Nars’ Orgasm. Equally electrifying is that the refillable mirrored compact is 75 percent post-consumer recycled plastic, in accordance with California’s excellent PCR mandate.
Other people are just as satisfied. At Credo Beauty, all 411 of the blushes’ reviewers gave them a five-star rating; in its reviews, words like “stunning,” “glowy,” and “luminous” fly. As two people described, the color can go from a subtle, “sun-kissed glow” to a more dramatic shade; just using a little “lights up” one 68-year-old’s face, and the hues double as eyeshadow.
Essential to its success, a Sephora reviewer noted, is that the mica reads as “sheen, no glitter,” and I couldn’t have said it better. As someone who tried RMS’s previous powder blush, it’s easy to say the brand outdid itself with this refillable upgrade.
