Every time someone speaks of “Beauty Center” in Mumbai, I want to fly to Mumbai with a packed wallet :P, but alas that never happens. I have heard that the shop there has Incolor and Jordana Cosmetics as well and when I found this brand online on a website, I thought I must try it.
Now, I am in a serious blush phase, but mainly matte blushes which I can wear without second thoughts; my recent favorite being the Bourjois blush I had reviewed last month. So, I was enthusiastic about these pretty-looking, dome-shaped, baked-type blushes and the pictures looked true to life and hence I ordered this blush because the name sounded very wearable, but the mistake I made was that I did not read, “glimmer.” I hadn’t thought how glimmery and shimmery these would be!
I received the parcel in a shattered state, I mean the blush was powdered (that’s another story) and so I had to transfer the powder to some stackable pots I have and the remaining is what you can see. Actually, the shape of the shadow is in a dome shape like the Bourjois eyeshadows, but the entire thing has come off.
The color is a very shimmery one and it looks like a pure copper color to me unlike what I had imagined it to be. The color turned out to be a bronzer. In fact, this makes for a great bronzer shade for your body and the face as well sometimes.
The texture is very soft and it feels almost like any baked blush to me. The powder is a little chalky as in the shimmer is very finely milled, but still falls here and there. The powder is very tough to blend as well. Contrary to the feel and softness of the blush, the blush is very hard to blend. It gets very patchy on the skin and then it sticks on the skin, not ready to be blended.
For the above reasons, i.e., the patchiness, shimmer, and being a bronzer shade that it is, I recommend this one as body bronzer only. I don’t recommend this for the face, neither will I use it for my face because somehow I find its just not right for the face. Plus it is so shimmery, I would look very tanned when I use this. Also, its so shimmery which makes it only a night wear. Though the shimmer is finely milled, the sheen that it gives would be a disaster for oily skin!
The color is too shimmery and bronzy to be used on the face. The texture is fine and soft no doubt, but this one has failed to impress me because it has a lot of coppery sheen to it, strictly for the body as a bronzer only!
