Avon Smooth Mineral Blush in Perfect Plum
Avon Smooth Mineral Blush is a 100% pure mineral pigment blush. Mineral makeup is
regarded as very safe for skin, even beneficial. Mineral makeup otherwise is slightly expensive.I decided to try their blush which was on sale for $5.99. It is also available in India, but I could not find its price in the latest Indian Avon catalog. I chose the shade Perfect plum because it was color I had never tired before and wanted to see how it would look on my Indian skin.
As stated on their website-
Exceptionally fine, pure mineral powder pigments blend to a naturally luminous finish. Gentle as a breeze, feels like nothing at all. Contains 100% pure mineral pigments…and enriched with vitamins. Free of talc, oil and fragrance. Great for all skin types, even sensitive. Infused with our mineral glow pearls…Avon’s mineral blush illuminates cheeks and helps to bring out skin’s true vibrance. Featherlight airbrushed finish for a healthy radiance.

The approximate size of the box is the rather large and contains way enough blush to last for a very long time. Its very finely milled powder, in a pot with a sifter lid. The lid comes covered with a plastic cover which is meant to be removed, but I would advise to rather make a few holes in it otherwise you have a lot of pigment overflowing each time you open the box.
I am really impressed with the quality of this blush. It’s build able but doesn’t look cakey like other mineral blushes when you layer them. This gives me an effortless light pink look without looking unnatural. I’ve never liked Bare Minerals or mineral foundation because it clogs my pores when not blended a million times, but not this one is pretty nice. The color is build able so you can make it more natural looking or more dramatic if you want.
To sum it up-

Cons of Avon Mineral Smooth Blush
- Very pigmented, might look too dark if not blended well.
- Requires a good blush brush for application.
I loved this blush. Its a nice color that looks very natural when blended well.
Since its mineral makeup, its safe for long period, everyday wear. It requires very less
quantity, I usually use the powder that’s on the cap and its usually enough for me.
I am not much of an Avon fan, but this product is definitely good. After my Nars blush, I would go for this blush.
