I realized I have skipped trying out these beautiful blushes in the whole “absolute” fervor I tried the lippies, the bronzer and the highlighter, the eyeliner, the brushes, the gloss(yet to review) etc. But, I always thought these blushes are shimmery and hence they never called out to me. But when I saw the “Day Blushes” shade, I totally fell for it. I had not known they have such a lovely soft pink, non-shimmery shade in their kitty and I picked up three shades. Nupur has reviewed a gorgeous shimmer shade”Night Sparkles” . I will be reviewing another shade in “Night Sheen” soon.
The packaging has been adopted from other brand in my humble opinion. Chambor has baked blushes or the like with a similar packaging. Somehow, I find the packaging very drab and I know they look very tempting in the round baked blush feel, but still it doesn’t thrill me. There is no brush or mirror which is perfectly fine with me. Brushes are a hassle anyway.
The texture of the blush is just right, just perfect. Since its a blush, we don’t want them to be too soft or else we might pick up a lot of color and end up looking like a clown. But on the other hand, we don’t want it to be hard that we keep swirling the brush on it(has happened with my Bourjois blush, believe it or not).The blushes feel very soft, especially the “day blushes” shade is very smooth and the shimmer is almost invisible on a matte base.
The collection has four blushes, two meant for day wear and another two for the night.I quite like how they eased it out for us and I would say the day shades are actually great for day, but dont count them for a nude blush or something. The “Day Sheer” shade is a peachy coppery shimmer shade, and might be too shimemry for a bight afternoon, but neverhtless a great shade. It has golden fine shimmer to it and in fact, the “Night Sheen” shade is more subtle than this one. 😛
The “Day Blushes” shade is my favorite of all. It is a pretty doll peachy-pink with teeny-meeny shimmer to it, almost matte. The blush has that mild pearly sheen to it which will salvage it from being too matte. The blush can be called matte since the base is matte, never mind the unnoticeable shimmer to it.I think this shade will suit fairer and pinker skin tones where as the “Day Sheer” will be great for medium and dusky skin tone will rock it.
The staying power is decent and they do melt on me if I don’t have good foundation on. Basically they stay fresh for four hours at least.Go light and easy with them as they are quite pigmented.The names again are unique but confusing but they make life easy for us.
The blushes are priced at Rs.550 and I think for what they are, they are fine,there is no chalkiness, no hardness, no fall out that goes out of control. The shade are great as well but they could have come up with a plummy-pink shade as well instead of hovering in the peach category for most of them and then the shimmer could have been more limited.
Overall, I recommend these blushes for the texture and the shades. “Day Blushes” is my favorite out out of the four they have come up with.
