Let’s discuss a long since discontinued product. I am always a bit on the fence whether I should or shouldn’t include products like this in reviews, but if you love a products as much as this and you just never got around to posting the review, then why not? I figured that there will be someone out there still looking for information on this Too Faced Sweethearts blusher in Peach Beach and so I thought I could still grace it with a review. To my horror, these are some super old pictures that I took when I still lived in my previous place (which is nearly 5 years ago), so I do apologize if the picture quality isn’t the same, but I just wanted to rave about a product I love and lament the beauty that used to be good Too Faced products.
Review: Too Faced Sweethearts Blusher in Peach Beach
Usually this part of the review is dedicated to me telling you how much something would cost and how you might get it. With this, I honestly can’t tell you. Maybe you can find someone selling their old products on the resale market through Depop, Vinted, Mercary or Ebay, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up (nor pay too much for product that is old). This is a good few years old. I believe I bought mine when I went to Rome which was in 2016, so go figure. This is old, but I love it and it reminds me of how good Too Faced products used to be and how much hype they got. I bought mine through the recommendation of Emily Noel, but I have fallen in love with it hard only in recent years myself.
What does this blush have to offer?
The Too Faced Sweethearts blushes were hyped up quite a bit. Not as much as the Love Flush offerings but this these got quite a bit of hype. This is a baked formula that has three shades of blush that you can wear by itself or mixed together. Wearing the colors individually is difficult as most blush brushes are too big, so I always just swirl mine together. It’s a shame this was discontinued because it is by far one of my favorite products Too Faced used to do, but I think this was duped out just a little bit too much by brands such as Make Up Revolution. That brand ended up doing many more heart shaped products from blushes that duped these to highlighters and bronzers. Make Up Revolution (or one of their sub brands) may still have some of those in stock, so if you like the look of this, then that may be a way to get a similar style product.
Why do I love this blush so much I still want to review it?
So this blush I have owned for years, but it wasn’t until fairly recently that I truly started to appreciate this product. I have been putting it in Shop My Stashes regularly these past two years and to my surprise this was one I just hadn’t yet reviewed. I used to review products just whenever but lately I tend to stick to products I selected in my Shop My Stash. That way I can more easily rotate through my blushes and make sure I have everything up here. And it is through that Shop My Stash process that I rediscovered this. It is such a stunning soft peach blush look. It has a bit of sheen and just goes with everything. There are months where I had selected this that I reached for hardly anything but this one single blush. And you know when that happens, that it’s a good one.
How does this blush swatch?
Here I have swatched out the shades individually first and then I have blended them all together. It is like a more muted, softer version of NARS’ Orgasm when you swirl everything together. As you can see the shade consists of a bit of a champagne highlight, a peach toned blush and a bit of a glowy bronze. So technically you can do your entire cheek with this one product. A bit difficult to do, but you could if you’d want to. I just swirl this together and often if I don’t feel like wearing any other makeup but a bit of a blush I will often opt for this one as it is a great one and done cheek product. All I need is a bit of this for a bit of glow, a bit of color and a bit of definition.
How does it apply to the cheeks?
So in the swatches I feel this always comes off more intense than it looks in real life. When using a brush this sheers out beautifully and goes on seamlessly. It adds a touch of color and glow but never looks like too much. I can build this up into the high heavens but I never look like a clown (as some super pigmented blushes can do). This is just beautiful natural and I think one of the reasons I have fallen so much in love with this right now is because in recent years I have really fallen hard for anything glowy in a blush. I used to be a matte blush girl, but I have found that a bit of shine to a blush adds just a bit more life and dimension to the face.
My final thoughts
The Too Faced Sweethearts blush in Peach Beach is such a lovely blush. I wish someone, any brand, would bring back this style of blush in this formula. I could forego the bulky packaging. While cute, it really just adds bulk and I think that’s another reason why people ended up decluttering theirs over the years. So please brands: bring back good glowy blushes in a stunning soft peach shade that isn’t glittery but in easier packaging. If that happens I might be able to replace this. But until then I will be more than happy to continue using this.
Would I recommend the Too Faced Peach Beach blush?
This is a stunning product and one of my all time favorite blushes but I would not recommend going out of your way to get your hands on this. There are alternatives some much cheaper than this. I feel the Catrice Multicolor Glow box in Dolce Vita can give a similar effect (but it is more colorful than this and less sheer) and that is still readily available. In terms of formula I feel this comes closest to the Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting blushes. The shade Incandescent Electra is close but again more orange toned that this. EM Cosmetics Heaven’s Glow blushes are perhaps the closest thing offered on the market today that do what this does. So it’s out there, but a bit harder to find.
