Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush-Pink Pinch

By Swati Stephen

Hi Make up geeks !! This is my first review with IMBB even though I’ve been an avid reader of the make up reviews for a long time & have totally enjoyed all the indulgence here. So I am super happy to join the big family of the beauty bandwagon.

A little bit about myself since this is the first time writing . I am a self employed training consultant and have a never dying love for colors and art .So to begin with I’ll be reviewing Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush-Pink Pinch.

Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush Pink Pinch

I was actually looking for a nice not too pale and not too bright pink matte powder blush (fancy powder blushes more than the creme ones anyday) and tried quite a few blushes until I finally settled for this one . I am very pleased with my desicion.

Price:

INR 650

Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush Pink Pinch Ingredients

Packaging:

The blush comes in a sturdy outer carton of a silver box with a little plastic sheet in the centre that shows the color of the blush. The inside packing is a round plastic case with a transparent cover also looks attractive and quite protective of the content .

What the package says:

Light weight with excellent blending & velvety touch . Has smooth & longlasting effect.

About the Color:

Color of the blush is a lovely pastel rosy pink perfect for almost all complexions from fair skinned to olive or the lovely dusky skin. The blush has a matte finish & thus can be used for daily wear even at work or more formal events. The texture is quite smooth , silky & light weight . The pigmentation is decent .I tend to use a fair amount of product to give my cheeks the desired color. It blends in quite easily with a few strokes. If you’re a pink lover then this is a must have.

The color is quite simliar to MAC’s pink swoon blush. Very young and vibrant. It’s surely a shade I’ll always want to have.

Pros of Colorbar cheek illusion blush 008 pink pinch :

• The shade is perfect for daily wear due to its matte finish.
• Smooth silky texture.
• The shade is perfect mix of a bright & pale pink together and thus gives a natural pinkish glow to the face.
• Easily available at Colorbar stores with their new range of products.
• Stays for about 5 to 6 hours depending on your skin type .

Cons of Colorbar cheek illusion blush 008 pink pinch :

• Doesn’t come with a brush or a little mirror.
• I still think its a little pricey.

Overall a great long-staying blush that adds a natural rosy pink color to the cheeks.

Will I buy Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush-Pink Pinch again?

Abso-freakin-lutely . But I guess this one will last for a while .
