Rock and Republic Pressed Blush ($40) That’s right. $40 for blush. All over the beauty blogging world, beauty bloggers have been raving about the miraculous wonders of the Rock and Republic blushes. I tried to avoid purchasing the blushes for nearly a year, but I couldn’t hold out any longer. I had to find out for myself if it was truly all that great. Is it? Oh, yeah! First off, the names of the blushes are very interesting and quite the attention getter: X-Rated, Kinky, Foreplay, Spank, and that’s just naming a few of them. The colors of the blushes also scream for attention. The colors are bold, bright, and pigmented. Don’t be scared by the names and the shades. You get what you pay for. Besides the humongous size (it’s about the size of the palm of my hand!) and sturdy compact, the blushes go on super smooth and last all day. No need for touch ups. The blushes are also blendable and not chalky, powdery at all. A little goes a long way so you know these blushes will be lasting you a lifetime plus another 50 years. No need for backups. What was I thinking not buying these earlier? I want to say Rock and Republic blushes now ranks as one of my favorites, and I will absolutely be buying more shades when these babies go on sale.
