Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush Peachy Sweetie Review
I love blushes. Even if I am not wearing a ton of makeup, a healthy wash of colour on my cheeks is a must for me every time I step out of home. I love how it instantaneously brightens up my face. Today I’ll be reviewing for you a recent favourite of mine, the Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in the shade Peachy Sweetie. Read on to know why I’ve been showering my love upon it.
Price: Rs 250 for 7g
The blush pan is encased in plastic white case, with a transparent top. There’s no mirror provided, and the case isn’t that sturdy,but then you can’t get everything for a meagre two hundred and fifty rupees, can you? It’s a cute little thing, though.
The pigmentation is average but buildable. Two swipes of the blush using fingers or brush, and it gives your cheeks a healthy flush of colour. Add some more swipes for a more darker hue.The colour is gorgeous peachy pink with subtle silver shimmer in it. Once applied to your cheeks, the shimmer will function to give your cheeks that beautiful glow, without looking unnatural. The blush gives a natural pink flush to fairer or medium toned skin. It would appear a tad ashy on deeper skin tones.
The texture is smooth and silky, not at all powdery or chalky. Apply it using fingers or brush, blending it is the easiest thing to do. Even if you’re using a brush it’s highly unlikely that you’ll pick up a lot of the product. Thus, you won’t go overboard with the blush even if you are a beginner, which is good thing, because there’s nothing ruins your makeup more than too much blush.
The staying power on my overly oily skin is around 2-3 hours. Right now, in winters, when my skin is not as oily, it stays put for around 4 hours. Due to the low staying power touch-ups are of vital importance. I do carry it my bag and just use my fingers for touch ups.
Of late, I have been using this blush every single time I step out. It’s a great blush for days and you could even wear it to work without looking over the top. I’d suggest fairer to medium toned women to definitely give it a try.
- A beautiful peachy pink for everyday use.
- Budget friendly.
- Amazing quantity for the given price.
- The texture is smooth and silky.
- Pigmentation is pretty decent for the price.
- Staying power is not all that great
- The packaging is not sturdy.
Overall Rating: 4/5
A great blush for beginners. Fairer to medium toned women with no inhibitions against subtle shimmer, go get it. There’s no reason not to.
