Online shopping for makeup can be tricky. I ordered NYX “Pinched” and got this instead. Since I hadn’t used the product before, I was not sure if it was indeed Pinched. Only later did I realize that it was “Pinky”.
The blush comes in a black square box. The lid is not so easy to open, I struggle with it every time. But the pattern (or the design) inside the box is very cute and appealing.
This blush is incredibly pigmented and easy to blend in. I have used it many times and I feel that I have always dabbed a tissue/ cotton on it after I have applied the blush. This looks tricky on average Indian skin. It will look gorgeous on the ladies of the fair side. On a lighter note, if Barbie were a human, she would totally prefer this shade all the time. The colorstays for a good time. It lasted on me for 3-4 hours, on foundation. If a makeup newbie is applying this blush, it might look dicey. They can use light hand and take a small amount, else they will end up looking like a clown.
It is a gorgeous shade, no doubt. The shimmer makes it perfect for brides, or evening parties. It will look wonderful in photos. The soft shimmer gives a nice, natural glow to the cheeks along with color.I tried applying it once on the eyes, wondering if it will double as an eye-shadow and it did! Not sure if it is safe for eyes though, since it contains parabens.
