Over the last year, I have found myself getting to be a blush addict. I feel that it adds colour and brightens up the face. But if overdone, you could end up with clown cheeks. Just how much is too much?
I went out yesterday to get a couple things done and I wore the peachy Jordana Blush in Coral Sandy Beach. Now I always buff loose powder just in case I have gone overboard with the blush. The person who I was with asked me if my cheeks were swollen as I seemed a bit red. I just mumbled something about the heat and frantically looked at myself in the mirror while driving. All ok there, so well…..
Anyways, that isn’t going to make me give up wearing blush anytime soon.
I started with the cheaper Jordana blushes that cost me Rs 180 to 220. While they are really nice, I recently happened to pick up a Faces Cosmetics blush and realised what a huge difference there was in quality.
The Faces blush that I am reviewing is not the Glam On blush that is made in India by Aero Pharma Ltd. It’s from the international range that is only available in the Faces Cosmetics stores.
I have never bothered much with Faces blushes but during the recent sale, I just happened to run a brush over the tester and was amazed at the pigmentation and the finely milled the powder. I tested it on my cheeks and I was sold. I wanted to get them all but I had to remind myself of how many blushes I have at home.
I picked the shade in NB000024. I hate that these have numbers. It’s a deep and dusty rose pink with a hint of purple and goes very well with my complexion and any medium to dusky complexions. Fair complexioned girls will have to apply this with a very light hand.
It’s highly pigmented and one swipe of the brush is enough to get the colour on your cheeks. The powder is very fine so settles into your skin giving it a glow. It has no shimmer but neither is it completely matte. It’s not powdery and won’t leave a powdery trail all over your dresser.
I find myself reaching out for this almost every day. It photographs very well. I still love my Jordana blushes but I think I am ready to move on to better quality blush. I think the price is very reasonable if you consider that even a blush from Lakme or a Lotus is priced above 500 bucks.
Price: Rs 549. I got it during the sale so this was 30 per cent off at Rs 330
Bottomline: I think this is a must have blush and will take a long time to get over. I have too many blushes but I think I may pick up another shade during their next sale.
