Faces Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Pink Topaz
Hey Everyone! I am really excited about this review because the product I’m reviewing is my first ever blush! Yay! I bought this from fashionandyou.com during the Diwali sales. I was a little apprehensive about buying from this site because a lot of you have had bad experiences while shopping from here, but during Diwali, they had free shipping, cash on delivery and amazing discounts. So, I placed an order for two blushes – this one and one from the normal Faces blush range as well as some eye pencils. I had also placed separate orders for each of the items because my shopping basket kept expiring after a few minutes. My experience with this site wasn’t excellent because the fashionandyou people randomly canceled two of my orders without informing me. I don’t always have a computer at home, so can’t log in everyday, but the day I logged into the site, I noticed that two of my orders were canceled (this was after a long time by which time one blush and eye pencil had already arrived and so had my buyincoins order).
I mailed them and asked them why this had happened and they said it was because of some stock shortage. Well, that may be, but they should have at least mailed me, na?
Anyway, the items that I did get were in good condition and didn’t seem like old stock, thank God 😉

My Take on Faces Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Pink Topaz:
This blush is coral pink in colour. It’s very pigmented and a great colour for Indian skin tones. I don’t have much experience with blushes, but I think it is a shade which will suit both fair and dusky tones beautifully. The packaging is very pretty and sturdy.The blush is housed in a round, matte black box which opens up to reveal the blush and a tiny brush in the bottom half and a mirror in the top half. The brush is not scratchy or very flat. It can be used for touch-ups on the go. The blush seems to be quite long-lasting as compared to the others in this price range. I haven’t used it with a foundation, but I think that will only make it last longer.
The following are some picture and swatches of the product.
I couldn’t capture the true colour of the blush while photographing, so I edited it just a bit to simulate its real-life colours.

Pros of Faces Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Pink Topaz:
- Beautiful colour that will suit most skin tones.
- Hypo-allergenic, so it won’t clog pores, good if you have sensitive acne-prone skin.
- No synthetic perfume.
- Sturdy and pretty packaging.
- Handy mirror and brush for touch-ups.
- Long lasting, especially with makeup base.
- Very pigmented.
- Smooth to apply and not chalky.
- Reasonably priced for its attributes.
Cons of Faces Cosmetics Mineral Blush in Pink Topaz:
- Contains parabens (can’t think of anything else).
Great buy if you like coral pink colours, smooth application and reasonably long lasting. If you can get it during a sale, then it is amazing value for money. Even otherwise, it’s a very good product for the price. I will definitely recommend it to everyone who likes such colours.

I got this Faces blush free on purchase of Rs.1000 worth Faces products. I had bought two eye pencils and a foundation. The color I got was Amber. I like it. :yahoo:
The shade`s super hot – if coupled with a slightly tan skin and dark lined eyes – and straight dark open hair – it would look gorgeous :jalwa:

This has been on my list for a while, but am wary of ordering faces stuff from fny, cos the eyesahdow i ordered took 6 weeks, and the gloss was cancelled. i’ve never had a problem with anything else i ordered so far though, touch wood.
