Revlon Naughty Nude blush
 As much as I like to shop and have bright cheek colors in my collection, I always fall back to my natural and neutral colors.  Why?  Why when I have such an awesome array of beautiful brights?  Well, when I get the answer to that ridiculous question, I will let you know, but what I do know is that my natural blushes are workhorses.  They are the colors that are appropriate for every situation, from work to play, and play well with a variety of looks.  The one above is one such workhorse...

Revlon Naughty Nude - open package
I picked up this lovely blush from Revlon at my local Rite Aid for about $8.00 USD.  Naughty Nude is contained in a black, plastic clamshell package with a little brush.  You get 0.17oz/5.0g of powder product.

What hit me at first was how lovely this was in the pan...I mean LOOK AT THAT!!!  It is such a beautiful peachy gold neutral mix.

In the swatch above, in light, the color gets a bit washed out, and this was a bit of a heavier swatch.   What washes it out, I believe, is the amount of sheen this blush has.   This is evident when you swatch the product...the heavier the swatch, the heavier the sheen.  In the picture above, you see two swatches.  On a lighter skinned person, this will probably have more of a peach tone along with the sheen.  I have a bit of color this summer and in bright lights or outside, the swatch above is pretty accurate.

Above, you see the bottom swatch is closer to real life color than anything.  It really is a beautiful golden peach color.  This is a medium swatch as I wanted to closely resemble the amount you guys would actually be putting on your face.  Now, on the face it was a bit lighter than this.  Again, lighter skinned ladies will probably get more of a punch out of this color than those that are darker mediums to tanned to chocolate skin tones.  I will add that those with darker skin tones may enjoy this as a highlight with color.

I found the sheen in this beautiful and probably the selling point of this blush.  Unfortunately, the richness of color I thought this had was lackluster.  You most definitely can build this, but be aware, as much as you are building color, you are building on that sheen.  It is a sheen we are dealing with here, not a glitter...nothing that will flake off during the day.  Normal wear and tear of this product lasted a nice 7 hours on top of a full face of base makeup.  For a drugstore buy, I would give it a try :)
