How have you all been? I am loving the scene where all the shopkeepers and Ganpati statues sellers have their amazingly colourful decorated Ganpatis. It looks soooo glam and happening. Now coming to the review for the day, it is a blush from Estee lauder. It belongs to my mom but she does not use blush as often as I use so she passed this on to me. Let’s see how did the blush worked for me.
Smooth, velvety formula delivers warm, natural-looking colour that stays true all day. Blends effortlessly. Colour builds easily from soft to striking, so you’re always in control.
Tip: Smile to find the apple of your cheeks. Then sweep blush outward and upward toward hairline.
How I liked the Estée Lauder blush all day natural cheek colour: 16-Desert ?
As I mentioned this was passed by my mom to me, she got this particular blush in a complete make-up kit from Estee lauder and imagine she had used the entire kit and that she left for me was this blush. This blush is the smallest size which comes in a circular pot with a cute star shape on it so that you can notice the shade from that star window. The bigger variants are available in square shaped palette. It is super handy to carry and a lot of make-up break when you drop them but this does not how hard you drop it. The blush comes in soft brownish rose shade which looks very natural on the skin. The consistency is a bit chalky but glides on smoothly with blush brush. The shade that they have created is nothing related to showy pinks or peaches; it is a subtle shade which gives a rosy glow to your cheeks. When I actually saw the shade for the first time I was like is this even going to show up? Later on when I rubbed my finger to actually see what shade it is it was a hard time because I had to rub my fingers a lot to get the shade on but when the shade finally showed up I pretty much liked it.
While applying it on my cheeks also I had to take the blush thrice from the pot but the colour looked very delicate on me. And it looked like I naturally had rosy cheeks; it did not seem like I had applied a blush which is kind of positive. This shade is the one which will go with any make-up look you have and will also suit all the shades of lipstick that you would choose to wear. But the unsatisfactory part of the blush is it does not stay for a long time. With a simple compact it will just stay for an hour or so. And with a face primer or a foundation or BB cream, it will stay for around 2 and a half to 3 hours depending on the skin type. Sincerely I did not expect this from such a big company, as the main thing for a blush is the staying power and for this range this was the most disappointing aspect.
Pros of Estée Lauder Blush All Day Natural Cheek Color – Desert:
-Handy and does not break when dropped
-Affordable for a blush
-Soft natural shade which gives a rosy glow to the skin
-Versatile shade which will adapt to all your make-up looks
-Bigger variants available and shade selection too
Cons of Estée Lauder Blush All Day Natural Cheek Color – Desert:
-Had to rub too hard to get the real shade on
-Will not show up on dusky or tan skin tones, suitable only for fair skin
-A big no no for night-time
-Does not last long enough; 1 hour with a compact and 2 and a half to 3 hours with a foundation, face primer or BB cream
Will I repurchase/recommend Estée Lauder blush all day natural cheek colour?
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 and do test and try the shade on your cheeks before picking it up.
