Le Metier De Beaute Blushes – review & swatches

Early last December I got an email about a beauty clearance sale at Saks Fifth Ave (online). While browsing I saw that LMDB had 1 blush, a few shadows and lipsticks was on sale for 50%. I found out later through blog browsing that they plan to relaunch these products sometime in 2014. I also went to my go to swatch sources to see how these looked on darker skin tones. I actually got 1 blush (Rumor) and 1 eyeshadow (Tuscan Sunset). Each retails for $30 ($15 each with the sale). The blushes and shadows are the same price, weight, and size.                
L to R: Rumor and Tuscan Sunset
Rumor is at best a deep burnt burgundy blush which comes off as a much deeper version of NYX Desert Rose, while Tuscan Sunset is very close to rose gold. The latter is very similar to Sleek MakeUPs Rosegold and MACs Stereorose (with less gold shimmer). Both the blush and shadow/blush are soft and very finely milled but is not powdery.
