The Colorbar Cheekillusion Blush | Review & Swatches
Blushes are always meant to enhance our cheekbones thereby giving a healthy and a beautiful glow to the face. Be it a smokey eye look, a nude makeup or a simple no foundation look, blush is one of the most important makeup products one should include in one’s stash.
I thereby got my hands on this luxurious and luminous blush from the Colorbar Cheekillusion range which is another cruelty-free brand, dermatologically tested and paraben-free. Most importantly, this brand is easily accessible in India.
I had been eyeing on this product as I swatched this blush in a mall, some weeks back and I came across this blush during an online sale on Nykaa and grabbed it at a pretty decent price.
The brand Colorbar is easily available at any store or online at its official website Colorbar and other online sites : Nykaa, Amazon , Flipkart.
However, I would recommend you to go and buy it from a store to be more precise about the shade you’re looking for as online pictures are quite misleading and do not match up to the original shades.
This blush which is so opulent in its packaging comes with the logo of COLORBAR beautifully engraved upon the product along with a transparent cap which shuts with a click, making it travel-friendly and my go-to product in recent times. The presence of a mirror in it would’ve been a bonus though, but that is still workable.
This blush ranges for Rs 650 for 4gms of product which shall last me a lifetime.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE COLORBAR CHEEKILLUSION BLUSH : CORAL BLISS 014
COLORBAR CHEEKILLUSION BLUSH IN CORAL BLISS 014
I purchased this blush in the shade Coral Bliss 014 which has a soft sheen and shimmer to it along with a beautiful warm coral tone which would accentuate any Indian skin tone remarkably. It has a beautiful satin finish to it which doesn’t make the cheeks cakey or powdery and is lightweight and silky in texture. This gorgeous daily wear blush is buildable and it effortlessly blends on to the skin like a dream.
This is the first time that I invested into a shimmer blush as I’ve always used matte blushes for my oily to combination skin. But this blush is unbelievably marvelous and is highly pigmented. A single stroke of this blush on your cheeks and you’re good to go. The shade Coral Bliss has shimmer particles which when applied on the cheeks instantly gleams up my face. Though I wouldn’t recommend applying too much of this product due to the presence of shimmer particles which might end up looking overboard and inordinate.
FORMULA AND TEXTURE :
Coming onto its formula, this blush is soft velvety in texture. It does not have any fallouts. It stays on the face much longer than many other blushes that I’ve tried till now. I’ve worn this blush for about good 6 hrs along with a primer and a makeup setting spray which certainly enhanced its longevity all the more. Also, it is suitable for oily to combination skin types and is most suitable for dry skin types.
Owing to the price range it falls in, this blush can be used for daily wear or any formal event as it’s pigmentation is buildable. However, buying this one online could be a bit tricky as it gets quite challenging to judge the right shade for yourself. As mentioned above, I had already swatched this on myself in the store but was waiting for a good online deal.
What I didn’t like :
- Absence of a mirror and brush in the packaging
- Difficult to buy online as the shades shown online may be misleading or unclear as per the different skin tones
Coming onto the verdict, this blush is a great option for daily wear or any formal event. The product is buildable and instantly brightens up the face. Also it is economical, owing to the price that it retails for and in this case, less is always more. With a paraben free product, good color pay off plus the beautiful sheen it possesses, I’d give a B+ to this blush
