Makeup Product Review: LORAC Cosmetics Best Blush in "Soul" with Photos & Swatches


LORAC Cosmetics Best Blush "Soul"

Product Description:

The LORAC Best Blush Blushes ($20 3.5 g) are described by LORAC as: "Whether you opt for a soft natural pink, a healthy peach glow, or a more dramatic shade, this satiny powder blush brightens your face and accentuates your features. Sweep blush on apples of cheeks for a healthy pop of color!"

This specific blush was a part of the LORAC Face Tutorial Close Up Kit I purchased at  the Beautybar website recently. After trying all of the products in the kit I can say that I don't love them all, but I was pretty impressed with this one. The rest of the items will each have their own separate review here on the blog pretty soon so check back for those.

I don't wear blush on a day to day basis, since I already have hyper pigmentation in my cheeks giving me a natural flush all the time. I mostly wear blush for special occasions for that reason but I still love finding unique colors to add to my collection for use on my clients.


What I love:

"Soul" is a very neutral rose colored pink blush that would probably work on any complexion but would look it's very best on medium- dark skin tones in my opinion.  

It does have the slightest shimmer to it that highlights the cheekbones perfectly but at the same time leans towards a matte finish on the cheeks.

It's extremely pigmented so I would recommend a very light hand in applying it. 

It's extremely versatile in being able to be used for a fairly natural look or easily layered on to build up the color and suit a more dramatic look.

I also find that it is a pretty easy texture to work with when blending the product into the cheeks.

What I don't love:                

The packaging is nothing exciting for me, in fact it seems a bit junky.

The powder does get quite dusty when I put my brush into it causing it to get all over the lid and sides of the packaging and I dislike having a mess.

It lasts on my skin for about 4-5 hours which is just alright for me as I've had NYX and Nars blushes last for far longer.

There seems to be a decent amount of product in there but for reference Mac Blushes have 6g of product for the same price.

This blush is part of a small collection of 7 shades which makes choosing one easier but at the same time I wish they would bring out a larger selection so that there would be one to suit each and every skin tone.


The swatch- may seem a bit shimmery in  the first photo but you can see it's true color in the second.

This blush and any other LORAC products can be purchased at their website and on Beautybar's Website which is where I purchased the kit mine came with.

Hoping this product review will be helpful to you!
