Maybelline 210 Coral Burst blush Review

Maybelline recently released three baked type blushes with their Spring collection. I picked up two of them, but will only be reviewing one in this post, the Coral Burst 210.

Coral burst cost me around $6 at Walgreen's and is marked as Limited Edition.

Coral Burst is a dark orange with a golden sheen. There is no pink or coral to this blush at all. It is pure pumpkin orange.

I was interested in this shade to see how dupable it was for my more expensive Chanel Frivole.

Let's take a look.

In the pan the shades look quite different from each other, making the Frivole look more coral and the Coral Burst looking more orange. On the skin, they look very similar. Once buffed into the skin, the Coral Burst loses the golden sheen and gives a beautiful warm, peachy glow. The Frivole looks very similar, though it looks a tad more pink on the cheeks when compared to the Coral Burst.

They both wear exceptionally well. I have no problems with either wearing off by the end of my work shift, which is something I struggle with in general when it comes to blush. When comparing the price- $6 for 2.5g vs $43 for 6g, the Maybelline would win the Smackdown hands down.

All in all, they are both great if you are looking for a more orange/coral/peach look for the Spring. I am definitely not regretting my Chanel purchase, but if price is a concern, the Maybelline will give you the same look without the guilt.
