I was never fond of blushes. I didn’t think they added too much to the look until one day when I was trying out some make-up on my friend. She looked pale, so I thought of adding a hint of colour to her cheeks to make her look rosy. The minute I put the blusher on, she started glowing like a new bride. That’s when my lookout towards a blush changed. It is now an integral part of my makeup box.

My Take on L’Oreal True Match Superblendable Blush – Barely Blushing:
The blush comes in a grey coloured packaging with a transparent flip to open lid. It has three dots, in yellow, printed on the lid which indicates that the colour is suitable for warm skin tones. The cool skin tone blushers have the dots in blue. The package also contains a small brush and circular mirror in the bottom which makes it travel friendly. At the bottom, the company has mentioned as to which shade of their compact would the blush compliment with. This blush can be coordinated with True Match Makeup and powder shades nude beige or natural beige i.e. W3 or W4.
The blusher is a mix of peach and brown and has very fine golden shimmer in it. The blusher is extremely pigmented. A single stroke gives a natural flushed look to the cheeks. The colour can be built for an evening look. As the name suggests, the blush is extremely blendable, so it doesn’t make my cheeks look patchy, at least when it is applied. The staying power is not that great. It stays for about 3-4 hours after which a touch up is required. The blush does not fade out all that evenly.
The shimmer is not at all over the top, so the blush can safely be used during the daytime as well.
