Hello Dear Readers,
I am sure I am not the only one who loves that rosy glow on her cheeks. I naturally blush a lot :] and I love when my cheeks turn pink. Still, I love blushes so much because I always want my cheeks to have that flush of color.
This is my first blush review. I needed a blush that I can take anywhere with me which will not require any brush for the application. Therefore, I bought the one in a stick format.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
With the practical blush stick, it’s super easy to conjure-up a fresh complexion – even when you’re on-the-go! the silky formula with a powdery finish is easy to apply and can be blended using your fingers. the blush sticks are available in pink, fresh apricot and a bronzing shade – all with a fruity scent.
Essence blush sticks comes in opaque plastic container with a slide-off cap. You can twist the blush out like you would twist a lipstick out. The color of the packaging shows the color of the blush inside it.
It comes in three shades; 10- Pretty In Pink (reviewed here), 20- Bronze Babe, 30- Miss Peachy.
Essence blush in “Pretty in Pink” is a glowing pink color with a hint of shimmer in it. I love love love the color. I love how it gives a natural flush to your cheeks. The formula is quite silky and applies/blends like a dream. I just dab it on my cheeks and blend with my fingers for a very sheer pop of color, but it can be layered up for a more prominent color while still looking natural. I am NC 20-25 in MAC and it compliments my skin tone a lot. Miss peachy would also look great on girls with NC20-30 skin tone. This blush lasted for 6 good hours on my skin in this humid weather of Karachi. In spite of being long wearing it is easy to remove. I use my Pond’s Pure White Face Wash to remove it.
There is one thing which really bothers me about this blush; It’s scent. It a has a strong, kinda sweet scent. Urghh!!.
It is a nice every day blush, really good for beginners. I love the quality of this blush and I would recommend this blush to everyone who is new to makeup or wants a blush with a super easy application method and travel friendly packaging.
- Packaging is travel friendly.
- The color is build-able.
- Does not look cake-y.
- Does not make your skin look oily.
- Has a strong, sweet scent.
