Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush – Coral Craving

Hi lovely ladies!!!
Today I’m reviewing Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush in the shade Coral Craving.They have 6 shades many of them have been reviewed on IMBB. This  is the only coral they have midst the bronze and pinks.I love oranges so I picked this up.

Price: Rs.650 for 4g.


My Experience with Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush – Coral Craving

The blush comes in a simple plastic packaging with a silver base and transparent cover lid, making it easy to spot a particular colour in case you have more than one shade. The blush has a COLORBAR patterning all over it.


I’m always on the lookout for coral blushes and when I saw this blush, I immediately picked it up because the blush looks like a nice bright matte coral shade in the pan. But on swatching it-you can see fine shimmer, which is disheartening if you were expecting it to be a matte blush.

The blush has average pigmentation. It is smooth yet hard-so you need to swirl your brush a little more to get the blush on the brush. When you blend the blush- the silvery sheen overshadows he bright colour and gives a glow. It functions like a highlighter and a blush. It lasts long-almost 4 hours or so.


Pros of Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush – Coral Craving

-Sturdy packaging
-Blends well
-Gives glow to cheeks and works as a highlighter
-Lasts long

Cons of Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush – Coral Craving

-Not extremely pigmented so need to layer it up to see the colour
-Has silver shimmer-not matte
-Hard in pan so need to swirl brush a little too much


Would I repurchase Colorbar Cheek Illusion Blush – Coral Craving?

No I wouldn’t buy this shade again. Probably I will try some other shade. Overall, this blush looks like an amazing matte blush in the pan, but on blending it you get silvery sheen which overpowers the colour to some extent. I like my blush being all matte, so this shade works beautifully as a highlighter more than a blush for me.
