Hello ladies, Just realized that I haven't posted a blush review since long. So today I’m going to review an Estee Lauder’s all day blush in shade ‘plum’. Keep reading to see if it’s a hit or a miss.Product Description:
Now cheeks are vibrant with fresh, radiant colour in an expansive new palette of shades that embrace a diverse range of skin tones. High-performance technology combines with skin-loving ingredients in this ultra-silky, modern powder blush to add instant dimension and glamour to the face, from a soft flush of colour to dramatic contours that last all day.
A luscious new palette of bold brights and subtle hues, with a chic, modern point of view that fits seamlessly into the world of Pure Color.9 chic cheek shades of nudes, pinks, peaches and sensual plums add a caress of modern glamour to the face. From subtle to sublime, the palette enhances cheeks of every skin tone with a subtle radiance and feminine sheen.
Packaging: Estee Lauder all day blush in plum comes in a square pack of tightly packed-in blush. The packaging is of fine plastic with a transparent lid and It doesn’t contain any brush or applicator.
The blush comes in soft plum shade which looks very natural on the skin. The consistency is a bit chalky but glides on smoothly with blush brush. It is a subtle shade which gives a rosy glow to your cheeks. I must say, The first impression of this blush was not too good. I found it too chalky and too less pigmented and I had to swipe and swipe the blush to take a picture, but my experience with this blush with a proper brush and applied on a moisturised and powder compact was not so bad. I did see that I had a hard time picking up the color on the brush, but once that was done, the color on my cheeks did show up into such a pretty light and natural looking blush that I was amazed at the pretty plum and sheer natural color it gave me. I think this is a perfect winter blush as it's not bright at all, just a soft, warm, happy glow!
The texture of the blush is hard and not so pigmented but color is just so pretty and natural. ItIt is just a simple blush, not so pigmented. It is sheer and natural for a day look. Since I love its dusky pink to plum color, I do see myself reaching out for this one often for the soft look it provides. Apart from that, I was expecting a lot from an Estee Lauder blush.
doesn’t have much shimmer to it , just a
little bit of sheen but it hardly shows up on me. Upon application, you’ll get
a nice plumy pink adorable cheeks. The blush is buildable I must say, but still
would largely remain a day blush, soft and natural, and it can never do justice
to a night look and give no depth at all. Staying power since it is a natural
sheer blush is not so impressive either. I wore it over powder at 9 AM for
office and it lasted me just till 12 AM or so on my normal to dry skin.
My Recommendation: I wouldn’t actually buy this again even if it suited my skin tone perfectly because I cannot put in so much efforts every-time to apply it; although I will not mind to finish this up. For the people who will want to try it the range has changed to Estée Lauder tender blush. I would recommend to test and try the shade on your cheeks before picking it up.
