Sneak Peak – Sobe Botanicals New Blushes

Lex from Sobe Botanicals sent me a sneak peek with samples of her new blushes! You’ve seen me sporting Icing on the Cake, my favorite nude blush. I CANNOT get over how much I love this blush and I will be buying a full size soon. I feel like it looks amazing on me. Anyway, on to the pretty colors! I was really happy that I came up with fairly accurate color descriptions for these after looking at them under the daybulb. I think my eye for color is improving. I didn’t get to see the official color descriptions until after I came up with mine.

My color descriptions:
Icing on the cake – delicate pink with vanilla shimmer
Enchanted – blue-based pink with blue shimmer
Nouveau – nude pink with gold shimmer
Shebang! – light pink with purple shimmer
Fortune – soft light gold with pink shimmer
Two to Tango – orange coral with red shimmer
Dolled Up – nude pink with blue shimmer
Charming – apricot with gold shimmer
Metamorphosis – orange with green and gold shimmer

The official color descriptions:
Icing on the Cake-Light soft beige/Taupe w/ blue, pink, gold, copper & violet shimmer
Enchanted-Fuchsia w/ blue shimmer
Nouveaux-purple w/ gold shimmer
Shebang!-Hot pink w/ purple shimmer
Fortune-Light soft gold w/ gold & copper shimmer
Two to Tango-Coral w/ red shimmer
Charming-medium apricot pink w/ gold & bronze shimmer
Dolled up-pink w/ blue, purple & red shimmer
Metamorphosis-Warm Coral w/ teal shimmer

As you can tell, Icing on the Cake is my favorite, but I also like Enchanted, Fortune and Charming. It seems like the colors have a matte base and they’re somehow blended with a bit of shimmer, but I don’t feel like the shimmer is overkill. The colors are delicate to me.

$7.99 for 10 grams

Mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, tin oxide. Except for Enchanted & Shebang! & Two to Tango  all have FD&C color and cannot be used on the eyes.

They are Vegan.

I love these blushes.  I think they’re reasonably priced, $7.99 for 10 grams (and I think you can also do $11 for a 30 gram refill bag) will last you a long time! I think the colors are all very pretty and flattering. They’re sheer so you can build up the brightness with greater control. The shimmer is very fine and flattering.

Would I purchase?
Yes! I’m waiting for Icing on the Cake to go live so I can buy it :)  How about you? Have you tried Sobe Botanicals? What do you think of these blushes?

      Charming has definitely caught my eye. I’m a sucker for pink and gold shimmer blushes!

        I think it’s cute!

      I’d wear all of these except probably metamorphosis and two-to-tango. They are a bit too heavily pigmented and in the orange spectrum for my pale skin. The rest are gorgeous!

      I just tried to use gold as a blush over the weekend on a lark, and I really liked it. Good to see someone is putting it out there.

      I’d probably wear Dolled Up and Fortune the most, but Charming would be a great summer color for me.

        I’ve been trying to layer blushes more and these are perfect for layering!

      Nouveau and Enchanted have both caught my eye – love how indie companies are throwing in unexpected shimmer colours/ duochromes to their blush lately!

      Charming is SO PRETTY!! I think I might have to pick that one up. I love how natural and sheer it is, with a little bit of color and shimmer. Thanks for swatching!

      Lovely blushes!! Enchanted and Shebang! look especially good!
      I think Icing on the cake brightens up your skin greatly :)

    • http://prettynerdygirls.blogspot.com/ Anna Lee

      Oooh, I also like icing on the cake, but usually I gravitate towards light corals/pinks, they look best on my skin. With that said, I really would love to try Nouveau, Dolled Up and Charming :)

      • Phyrra

        They are pretty! What’s your favorite light coral?

    • http://needmoremakeup.wordpress.com Michelle – Need More Makeup

      Loving the looks of Enchanted and Nouveau. I made a note to myself to stop by there and try some more stuff; I haven’t ordered anything from there since the eye shadow primer. So thanks for the reminder! :)

    • Ciambella

      Ooh, Icing on the Cake sounds beautiful! I’m very attracted to Nouveau as well; it looks like a pretty shade of pink.

      • Phyrra

        It is, Ciambella :)
