For an Easy Summery Flush, Consider Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach Blush

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

Some questions and answers reveal more about us than others do, like, do you reach for peach blush BEFORE your first cup of coffee in the morning? Or, does the very thought of a day without peach cheeks make you break out in a cold sweat? If you answered “yes” to either inquiry, hello, friend — my name is Karen, and I’m a fellow peach blush addict enthusiast. 🙂


My newest peach blush crush, the cleverly named Papa Don’t Peach ($20), pays homage to Madge while paying attention to cheeks. It’s one of four powder Brightening Blushes from Too Faced.

Totally easy to use, it kisses cheeks with a soft and shimmery peachy warmth that looks particularly pretty on cheeks attached to half-awake zombie girls early in the morning…

Too Faced has a knack for balancing pigmentation and wearability, and Papa Don’t Peach contains just enough pigmentation to be visible on the cheeks, but not so much that it takes 10 minutes to blend away harsh edges.

Wearing Papa Don’t Peach on mah cheeks!

Lately I’ve taken to wearing it with summery coral, peach or gold lipsticks and glosses, but I feel it’s neutral enough to go with practically any lip or eye shade.

The product’s been a permanent member of the Too Faced line for a while now, so no worries about it going MIA soon. If you’ve been looking for an easy peasy peachy flush, you might want to check it out. Available at Sephora and online at Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+

    What a pretty color! I have to ask….when you model a product on NW20 skin, who do you borrow? lol

  2. Vet says:

    Hi Karen,

    Quick question…what’s the difference between this blush and Benefit’s Coralista blush? Which would you recommend?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Vet,

      See the answer to Lisbeth’s comment below for a swatch comparison. Both are great, but if you want something more pinky-coral, Coralista might be a better fit.

  3. Lizbeth says:

    Hey Karen how would you compare this to coralista?? I’m curious to see their differences!

  4. Nina says:

    The Madonna reference – SOLD! 😛

  5. Kelly says:

    I love that color, I wear it all the time!

  6. Solangel says:

    Hmm, I have that color, but found that it’s a bit too frosty for me. Any tips on application? I love blush, but suck at application!

  7. Natasha says:

    I am truly loving the name of that blush.

    oh my goodness, that shade looks AMAZING on you karen! I’m happy because you have been showing swatches on fair skin and your tan skin, so now I see how fabulous it looks on fair skin 🙂 I will definitley be picking up a box. This shade (and the package, sort of!) inspires me to wear that blush with a retro-floral dress, wedges and 50’s-style-curls. Love it!!!!!

  9. gio says:

    That’s a beautiful shade and I love the name too! 🙂

  10. Loving it! Peach and coral are my go-to blush shades! Your makeup looks so soft and pretty today! The blush and lip shades really suit you!! I just realized I use a lot of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!

    hey karen,

    i have medium/light asian skintone with yellow undertones. do you think that this could maybe even work as a bronzer?
    someone told me with asian skintones peach bronzers work best, but i cant find one that doesnt look like dirt one me!
    this color is sooo pretty and not dirt-like!!

  12. Rachel says:

    Everything looks better on your olive skin…I love it on your skin, but not so much on the fair skin. It looks too orange, as do all peachy/coral blushes on me. I’ll have to stick to pinks!

    • Karen says:

      I’m jealous of you! I bet you can pull off a lot of beautiful pale pinks that I can only dream of wearing!

    • Kim says:

      I’m always soo jealous when I look at photos of Karen being all glowy and pretty! I’m sure I have a much easier time with foundations, less pigmented products, and the cool pinks that I love though. The grass is greener on BOTH sides.

    The eye makeup looks so good! What are you using?

  14. Toni says:

    Love the blush, and love the name! Can I just say that I had hair exactly like that in college? I am serious – I even rocked the big lace bow in my hair and had Aqua Net hairspray to make sure the whole permed shebang stayed big and puffy. I never got around to getting a “boy toy” belt though.

    Thanks for showing the swatch comparisons to Coralista – I would probably pick the Coralista, because I’m NW20 and more of a pink-loving girl!

      Hey Marisol,

      There’s a comparison swatch above in the comments… scroll up to see side-by-side swatches of both. 🙂

      • Marisol says:

        Yeah I saw the swatch & that’s why I think I may need it. I am stopping at the Sephora in Stonestown tomorrow just in case something calls out to me & I’ll be checking it out.

  18. Hedy says:

    I love the blush-it came in my Fun in the Dark palette from Too Faced.

  20. Jeni says:

    Usually I’m not that into peach, but it looks really nice! I would buy it just for the awesome name! And I love that photo of Madonna. I think I still have my “Desperately Seeking Susan” poster hiding somewhere.

    Hi! I love your blog! I recently discovered melon blush from sonia kashuk for target and I am in love!!! not only was it like $8 but its super pigmented and soft. Its more of a satin with a subtle sheen which is good for my oily skin( no frost!)

  22. nikki says:

    this is a really pretty color especially on you. i have a feeling it might be too dark for me, which is weird bc i’m nc30. are you sure you’re nc35?

  23. Julbra says:

    This is so beautiful, I’m gonna get it on my next trip to Ulta.

  24. AtelierGal says:

    I’ve been looking for a really peachy blush, the swatch looks ideal enough. How long is the staying power?

  26. jess says:

    this is a really pretty blush..not as coral as you would think from looking at it. Its almost…tawny? Love the name.

  27. Janelle says:

    hmm, I’ve never seen this TooFaced product before, but I got a TooFaced palette as a gift YEARS ago and it was what got me hooked on peach blushes!

  28. Mel says:
