Julep Your Happy Look Glow Pore Minimizing Blush Review

I love that Julep is constantly innovating and creating new skincare and makeup products.  And being a big blush collector, I was especially excited when they added two new blushes to their makeup line!

When the Maven selection window came around (check out the Julep Maven Subscription services here), I decided to pick up the Julep Your Happy Look Glow Pore Minimizing Blush in the shade Petal Pink.

The Julep Your Happy Look Glow Pore Minimizing Blushes are loaded it up with skin-enhancing ingredients (as mentioned on their website):

  • Light-diffusing diamond powder and vitamin B6 to minimize pores and imperfections and add a hint of luminous shimmer.
  • Julep’s exclusive Power Cell Complex™ blends the benefits of three age-defying, skin-boosting, ultra-hydrating ingredients:
    • Rosehip seed oil delivers essential nutrients to soothe and repair.
    • Malvaceae Lipid Extract™ improves barrier function so skin retains moisture.
    • Green coffee bean oil invigorates skin & promotes cell turnover.

Your Happy Look blushes come in four shades – Peach Bellini, Petal Pink, Clover Pink, and Rosewood.  Peach Bellini is a warmer peachy tone, Petal Pink is a cooler bright pink tone, Clover Pink is a muted pink tone, and Rosewood is a muted rosy tone.

Just as the name implies, the Julep Your Happy Look Glow Pore Minimizing Blush gives off a subtle sheen that creates a nice glow on the cheeks.  The blushes are also very pigmented, and have a nice silky texture that make them easy to apply and blend out evenly.

The blush formula is made up of a very fine powder, which appears to help minimize the look of pores, as well as create a flawless, natural look.  And with the help of the added oils and extracts listed above, the cheeks always look smooth and hydrated.

Below, I’m wearing the Julep Your Happy Look Blush shade in ‘Petal Pink’.  You can see it adds a soft sheen on the top of my cheeks, and looks quite natural despite being one of the brighter pink shades.

One thing to note though is that because the blush is quite powdery, make sure to be gentle with your brush and tap off the excess powder a few times before applying to the cheeks (even on Julep’s website, they say you only need “one gentle tap”!).  And because it is both powdery and pigmented, I find it best to apply it with a stippling brush like the MAC 187 (my favorite brush for blushes!) to slowly build color and avoid losing product.

Overall, I’m loving the Julep Your Happy Look Glow Pore Minimizing Blush, and am anxious to try out the other shades as well.  All four blush shades are available on Julep’s website for $24 each ($19.20 price for Julep Mavens).
