A pop of color adds so much prettiness to our face. It makes you look younger and cheerful. Revlon Pink Peony is my first blush. Blushes were not really my forte as I had a tough time finding a shade to my liking. That was when I got this product as a gift.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 850 for 5.1 grams
The blush comes in a square pack with a transparent lid on the top. The packaging is sturdy, travel friendly and the transparent lid allows the user to pick the shade easily from a stack of other blushes. A pop up mirror is also provided that allows you to apply blush on the go. But the mirror pops up quite powerfully. Some of the blush had actually chipped off from the sides the first time I pressed the button. I am really careful ever since.
The color is a nice mauve pink that is not shimmery making it a perfect wear for the day time. The color is very subtle when applied but that gives a good control on the amount you want to apply. One can always build it up if needed. For the color to show up well you need to go over twice at least. The proper way of wearing a blush is to start at the apple of your cheeks and brush up towards the hairline. The shade would suit medium to fair skinned girls.
Even though no mention of ingredients scares me out, it has never irritated my oily acne prone skin. I find it very light to wear. It is easy to pick up the blush with a brush and even a beginner cannot make a mistake by going over the top with the color. Brushes meant especially for this purpose would be more useful than the small brush provided with the product. However, the bristles are not harsh on the skin. It might be of use while travelling.
The staying power is around 3-4 hours. There is no hint of color left behind after this period and one has to reapply.
Why I like?:
- Subtle wash of color
- Travel friendly compact packaging
- Does not irritate the skin nor causes break outs
- Mirror and brush included.
Why I don’t like?:
- Average staying power
- I find the price a bit high (what do you say girls, is it okay?)
An understated pink blush that is ideal for college or office wear. For the ones who are still skeptical about getting a blush, please get one soon and see the difference it makes to your whole look :)
