American Beauty Perfect Mineral Loose Powder Blush Review and Swatches

If you shop Kohl's it's likely you browse around the American Beauty Cosmetics display and check out what Ashley Judd is up. My sister simply adores Kohls so while she's busy getting her Kohls sale jive on I normally wander around the cosmetic counter and aisles to see what's new with Flirt and American Beauty.

For a bargain department store Kohls has a pretty extensive array of beauty items that they carry, American Beauty being one of their in house brands.

Jump ahead for a peep at keeping your peachy Summer glow with American Beauty Perfect Mineral Loose Powder Blush.

If you're a lover of mineral blushes you're sure to enjoy the American Beauty Perfect Mineral Loose Powder Blush. This little guy is a loose mineral blush available in six shades for $18.50 (it's on sale right now for $14.80). If you're busy comparing it to your BE blushes you must know that it's about triple the size and considerably larger for the price. It comes with a brush for application but I honestly didn't love it. It sheds terribly and the bristles are awful scratchy.

Aside from the crummy brush the actual blush is quite nice particularly the shade I have which is Nude Sand. Nude Sand is a deep coral shade with a very subtle shimmer. The blush is silky smooth and blends beautifully leaving behind quite a pigmented pop of peach to my cheeks. It gives a very nice glowy look to my face and cheeks. The formula is very lightweight and long wearing for a natural, healthy finish.

Overall, it's worthy of a pick up if you're at Kohls. It's a rather fab way of keeping that Summer glow all through Fall!
