Review: Kat Von D Everlasting Blush in Bellisima
I recently received a sample of the Kat Von D Everlasting Blush in Bellisima. Although it is described as a “peachy pink”, I would call this blush a solid matte peach.
The consistency of this blush is truly remarkable. The product is so finely-milled it feels velvety on the skin. It also feels substantial and blends nicely.
The pigmentation on this blush is just right. The color is noticeable right away, but it can easily be sheered out or built up to get the right touch of color. Given how easy it is to adjust the pigmentation and the fabulous peachy color, I think this blush would be flattering on a lot of different people.
Basically, this is just a really cooperative blush.
Sephora is marketing this as a product that’s built to contour. However, they haven’t really established why this blush would be better for contouring than any other blush. They do have a nice little series of videos on their site that explain how to contour for different face shapes. That could certainly be helpful for some people, but it doesn’t really address the issue of what’s special about these blushes with regards to contouring. Furthermore, in my opinion, the bronzer you use for contouring is much more important than the blush.
Completely counterintuitively, the one thing about this blush that I am not blown away with is the wear time. I normally don’t have any problems with blushes throughout the day. This one definitely fades after about four hours. Although they promise 24-hours of wear-time (which is kind of an absurd claim on the face of it), I don’t think you should expect any better wear out of these than a traditional blush. Indeed, based on my experiences, I would say this blush has more of a tendency to fade than other blushes.

This product retails for $25 for 0.25oz, putting it at $100 per ounce (the exact same price per ounce as a Benefit blush!). Wear-time issues aside, I really do like this blush. I have been wearing it daily for a couple of weeks now. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes matte blushes.
