Catrice 030 Kiss Me Ken Illuminating Blush Review



Hali Halo everyone!

Catrice has a lot of blushes to offer; I like the ones that have a touch of shimmer. I am so in love with the ‘Coral Me Maybe‘ blush that I went for ‘Kiss Me Ken’ too, from the same collection. The texture of this blush looks so attractive and glamorous, to begin with. For more, keep reading!

My Experience with Catrice 030 Kiss Me Ken Illuminating Blush:

The packaging is very nice. It comes in a round container with a flip cap. The lid opens and closes tightly. It’s very hand to travel with and since the lid closes tight, there is no fear of it opening by accident. The blush is packed in a chequered pattern. The product, in the packaging, looks quite shimmery. On application, it looks just right though. Shimmer-wise, it is very subtle. I would rather describe it as pearly finish, which I prefer.

The color is pink with warm undertones. As you can see in the pictures, it has 2 different colors built in. It’s possible to pick one of the colors and use it or mix both and use. I don’t have the patience to pick a single one and use, so I mostly mix both. It suits all skin tones and would look perfect on darker skin tones. The product has not got a good payoff. I have to apply quite a bit of the product onto my cheeks to get the color I am looking for, but still it looks mild.

The pigmentation is also not really great. For the picture with swatches, I had to apply so many coats! I was definitely expecting better pigmentation from it. The product is powder based and not cream based. You just need to apply one or 2 layers of the blush to get the right effect. Even after applying excess product, shimmer doesn’t look over done, which is a plus point.

One thing I would like to mention is that I couldn’t find the ingredients information anywhere on the packaging, or on the internet. The best thing I really like about this product is the illumination. With the usage of this product, you can skip the highlighter. Overall I am satisfied with the product, except for pigmentation. It’s not a must-have, but definitely worth a try if you love makeup.
