Without blush the makeup is really incomplete . For me concealer, lip color, blush and kohl are sufficient to get the perfect makeup look . As concealer cover up all the blemishes and pigmentation, lip color and kohl pop up the beautiful features of face and blush give color to face with slightly contouring it. I picked up the shade Madeira which is the name of the Brazilian river. Let’s find out more about it

My Experience with Rimmel London 220 Madeira Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush:
This range has a limited number of shades and varies country wise. The shade I chose is deep peach in color and a bit on the darker side for fair to medium skin tones but it is absolutely a ME color and suits all the tan and dusky beauties . It can also be used as a bronzer for fair to medium skin tone, only if slight shimmer does not bother you. The brush provided is literally useless for me as I cant blend my product well with it and makeup is all about blending properly.
The packaging of the blush is very simple with a transparent plastic cover over it which contains the Rimmel mono of crown. This has the usual packaging of a drugstore blush but I would really appreciate if they provide a mirror with it. It also has a small flat brush as a bonus which is of no use. I would rather prefer to use my blush brush for application. The shade code, ingredients and other packaging details are mentioned at the back of the blush.
It has a super soft texture and a small amount of products goes a long ways. No need to rub the brush on the product to get the desired amount onto the brush. It blends smoothly and has a pearly finish to it. It does contain shimmer but they are very fine which does not look heavy.
It is so pigmented that just one swipe is enough for me to cover both cheeks but again the application of the product is solely an individual’s choice.
It stays for a pretty long time for about 5 hours in hot and humid weather and that too without budging. The blush comes out with the dewy finish simultaneously popping my cheeks.
