Lotus Herbals Natural Blend Botanical Blusher Review
I have of late become a sucker for blushes and trust me, I thought blush was one overrated pigment before I knew IMBB 😀 . So anyway, thanks to the numerous reviews and pictures of eye-popping-ly beautiful blushes (and some having jaw-dropping-ly- high price tags) on IMBB ,I now crave for a blush whenever I visit a makeup shop (Thanks to my upcoming exams I am saving a lot of money because I am not going shopping). One problem with me, is that, every time I go to buy a new blush, I come home with a peach one. Same thing happened when I went to buy the Lotus Natural Blend Blusher.
I went to the Lotus counter (now this needs some planning, because where I live, there are no lotus makeup stuff available. I had to locate one at the nearest Big Bazaar). So before I went I was determined “No Peach this time-either pink or brown”. No prizes for guessing, I came back with a peachy pigment..again.
Lotus Natural Blend Botanical Blusher: Price Rs 329 The shade I bought is named Brew Ginger (604). The blush comes in an extremely beautiful and classy red and gold container. I get drawn to black, gold and red like pins to a magnet. I love the blusher case so much that I can’t wait to flip it open and flaunt it (ok wearing blush in public is kinda moron-ish 😀 but I can check my face, There is also a mirror in it :).) And I must mention the brush that comes along with it. It’s quite apt in picking up the right amount of blush and very very soft. Somehow I feel the blush is best applied with this brush only!!!!
Some key Ingredients of the Botanical blusher by Lotus-mentioned on the back of the carton: Witch Hazel Extract, Aloe Vera Extract, Grape Seed Extract. Provide environmental protection and nourishment for skin. The blusher has SPF-20 (but that would only protect the apples of my cheeks 🙁 )
Ok, so I went to the counter and the SA showed me the three available shades: the one I got, a pretty pink one and a beige one. Now the SA swatched the blush and told me-“Look, peach one is good for you” and got me into usual trouble. I swatched the peach and pink blush twice on the hands and once on the cheeks (can you believe it??) and then..TADAA..went for the PEACH 😀
The color of this blush is very subtle. The pigmentation is not very deep. It has no shimmer and is matte subtle peach. I kinda like it because it prevents me from overdoing. Swipe twice and I get just the soft peachy tint I want. And although at first the pigment seems to be faint, it actually lasts all day. Now my skin gets oily in 5 minutes after makeup-but this blush gets only better with that.
Swatch of the Blush (3 swipes) Can you see the blush on me? That’s after a whole day out in the sun without touch up!!
OK so what do I love about my first Lotus blush?
1. Packaging: Just classy! It’s great to have something like this and at gatherings take it out and expect many “ooh! Wazzat??” to fly in !!!
2. The blush is very buildable-it isn’t very deep in pigmentation and so you can control the amount very precisely. Overdone blushes no wonder look very silly.
3. Stays long-at least for 4 to 5 hours even if you use a compact on it for touch ups
4. The brush is more useful than the ones that come with other blushes–even better than the Maybelline Expert Wear ‘s one
5. The blusher has a great fragrance and has herbal ingredients (and SPF20)
6. Didn’t break me out
And what did I not like?
1) Its again PEACH (ok..skip that one :D)
2) It is completely matte-I sort of like shimmery blushes
3) There are only 3 shades, the pink one is too pink and the beige is –dunno what-dint like it much
As for the price, it is more than Colorbar’s but less than Lakme pure rouge’s. I think it’s quite reasonable.
I rate it: :-* :-* :-* :-*

@Rati: Hi, can you tell me how does lotus peach creme compare with Revlon colorburst peach? Tks
Lotus one is lot more orange and coral than the revlon peach. revlon peach is soft muted peach shade..
ya lotus one is not perfectly peach..its just as Rati said..between orange and coral..while buying I had just PEACH CREME in mind and dint notice the other shades in Lotus pure color :nerd: :nerd: ..I am dying to find the perfect matte peach ( hey gulz..suggest me something in the Price Range-Rs. 200 to 500)
you looking naughty and super cute , Anuradha. I love their botanical compact and it has the similar packaging. I loved the shade. I love these peachy corally blushes. :))
thanku thanku thanku :rose: :rose: :rose: True-these shades can never go wrong..(if I continue like this I will be wearing peach all my life..) actually Ioften overdo with pink..and I dunno how to use brown blush..although by accident I once found that they make lovely contours (at other times my face look “punched hard” with brown blush) Ratiiiii plzzz do a tut on face contouring with brown blush so that I can buy Just Earth happily 😀 😀 😀
okay :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
me too anuradha- my face looks punched with just earth :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: i ave to layer it with a pinky blsuh else i look like small baby who hasn’t been well fed and beaten by her mother :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
:drunk: :cheers: :victory: :handshake2:
i liked how it looks on you, Anuradha!!:D it happens to me all the time too that i pick up the same colour all the time!!
previously I thought about a theory of “one’s own color”-some color that suits us exactly..and we like them just all the time…seeing Rati I have junked the idea :pissedoff: :pissedoff: :pissedoff: …she wears peach pink brown n nudes and looks equally good in all of them.. :teeth: :teeth: :teeth: :teeth:
me too and you toh even said that i keep buying similar shades :hunterwali:
heheheh causee you ddddoooooo!!!!:P:P:P :stars: :stars: :stars:
Rati even I bought this Lotus Peach creme straight out without swatching other shades because you had recommended this :toothygrin: I see I am doing that a lot nowadays for things reveiwed here..but sadly for me my lips swell when I use Lotus one..so I was thinking of revlon peach..though Lotus peach is gawjus..
At the Lotus counter I was like hummming “peach creme -pink blush-peach creme – pink blush” …khik khik..the Lotus lady said..”OK..if you take anything in place of this..you will have nightmares” and sent me off to the cash counter 😀 😀 😀
Rajeshwari, :thanks: means a lot to me.. :))
the blush looks awesome on u…. me pucca buying it 🙂 :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes: :skywalker: :mohawk: :mohawk: :lashes: :lashes: :lashes: :lashes: :lashes:
