We Put Selena Gomez's Liquid Blush To The Test

We Put Selena Gomez's Liquid Blush To The Test
Selena Gomez is the most followed woman on Instagram with over 398m followers. The singer, actress, producer and businesswoman isn't doing too badly on TikTok either with 56m followers. Selena's fans, also known as 'selenators' are incredibly loyal, so when Space NK launched Rare Beauty in February 2022 we were prepared for products to fly off the shelves.

Fast forward a year and Rare Beauty products are still proving incredibly popular, so much so, we can't keep some of the lines in stock. Several shades of the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush are regularly out of stock. Is the Rare Beauty liquid blusher worth the hype? I put the formula to the test for two weeks...

Top Line On Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

With a shade range that spans soft, peachy nudes to richer, purply berry shades, it’s clear that the brand has worked hard to cover not just skin tones, but the all-important undertones too. Rare Beauty has also considered finishes with shades divided into dewy and matte looks. In keeping with the rest of the range, the Rare Beauty liquid blush is cruelty-free and vegan.

Everything you need to know about Rare Beauty's Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

There’s been a lot of chatter around two Rare Beauty blush formulas, but the liquid formula has had the most amount of interest. The 7.5ml tube with the signature Rare Beauty round lid could be mistaken for a lip gloss at first glance. While TikTokker @phithegoldenskin uses it on her lips, it is very much a liquid blush and a very good one at that.

I’m not even going to string it out, the texture of this formula is next level. There is none of the sticky, gloopy, or even greasiness that you get with some liquid blushers, Rare Beauty’s feels almost like a primer as it goes on and then it feels completely weightless. If you didn’t catch yourself in the mirror, you’d forget you were wearing it.

I have pale skin and opted for Bliss, a soft pink that sits in the matte finish family. For me, one dot on each cheekbone and blended out with my finger is more than enough and gives me a natural-looking flush. The pigment is strong though and you can easily layer it up for a bolder look. While I use my fingers, TikTokker and makeup artist, @mikaylanogueira, loves the shade Encourage (an everyday neutral pink) and uses a makeup sponge to blend the dot of blush onto her cheekbones.

What I love most about the Rare Beauty liquid blush versus other liquid and cream formulas, is that it dries and stays in place. While cream blushers can move when you apply other makeup on top or fade throughout the day, this one stays put for the majority of the day and doesn’t leave my highlighter stick with a pink tinge. While I wouldn’t say this is a formula that will see you through from 7.30am to 10pm, you won’t need to top it up unless you’re heading out in the evening and are giving your makeup a quick a refresh.

The Verdict On Selena Gomez's Liquid Blush

Whether you have dry or oily skin, if you’re looking for a blusher that will give your skin a fresh, healthy-looking glow in a flash without feeling heavy, sticky or greasy, Rare Beauty's Soft Pinch Liquid Blush is a good investment and we don't recommend waiting around. The lightweight packaging looks slick and the formula is non-comedogenic and vegan-friendly.
