Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
New from Too Faced are the loveliest blush/bronzer duos called the Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer ($42 CAD). Both named after the most memorable couples in TV history (Ross & Rachel and Carrie & Big), these powders not only provide a sun-kissed glow but also a gorgeous subtle flush to the cheeks.

The Blushing Bronzers come in an appropriately heart-shaped shiny black plastic compact. The lid has the Too Faced logo embossed in gold and the compact features a nice magnetic closure; to be honest, the packaging is a bit plain, the box of the bronzers is much cuter so I kind of expected the same from the actual compact. Nevertheless, the design is very sleek and travel-friendly.
Inside, the powder is pressed with heart shapes encircling one another. There is a whopping 18g of product. I'd estimate that about 70% of the powder is the bronzer and 30% the blush.

The Soul Mates Blushing Bronzers have a very soft, finely-milled, and slightly sheer formulation. Both bronzers have subtle shimmers and the blushes are more satin-y.
I like the not overly intense pigmentation because the product can be applied lightly or build up to achieve the desired intensity. The blush and the bronzer can be swirled together or they can be applied in a way that allows the blush to be placed on the cheek and the bronzer more in the hollows of the cheeks.

Ross & Rachel: A soft baby pink blush with a light cool-tone bronze tan.
Carrie & Big: Pretty peach blush with a warm light bronze.

These are really the cutest bronzers with the cutest names. I love the idea of combining a blush with a bronzer because it saves time, instead of applying the bronzer and then a blush, one can simply swirl, tap, and go. I hope Too Faced releases more of these Blushing Bronzers because I have quite a few shade names to contribute (ex. Jim & Pam, Lily & Marshal, just to name a few)!
