I know I don't need another blush (still here I'm obsessing over three blushes that are on my wish list *sigh*) but I figured buying a budget friendly blush wouldn't hurt. Right? I've had this blush for quite a while now and I didn't get to use it until two weeks ago. I was just wanted to perk my complexion up a bit and surprisingly I reached for this.
When I first applied it I was pleasantly surprised at the pigmentation. This blush is extremely pigmented! You just have to dab the brush lightly on it and sweep it across your cheeks and it'll do the trick. I was also surprised at how pretty the blush looks when applied. It looks as if you just had a walk in the frosty weather and your cheeks are naturally blushing. It really is a very pretty colour! Even though it has golden shimmer in it, the shimmer is very subtle. The shimmer gives more of a natural glow than a disco ball look. You will hardly notice it on your cheeks.
I'm not a big fan of the packaging. It could've been cuter and less....tacky? The blush has a very powdery consistency which I don't like. Also, even though it's fairly easy to blend, it does not blend like a dream. I found that it does not last for a very long time on my skin either. I have oily skin and on me it starts fading after two or three hours or so.
Despite the cons I still find myself reaching for it now and then because the shade is just so gorgeous. Peach Melba is ideal for those who are just starting their make-up collection or have just started using make-up. I find that it's great for every day use or for something really casual. Since it doesn't have a lot of lasting power, I wouldn't use it for formal/special occasions. It's worth giving a try though because it's budget friendly!
If you're tried Luscious blushes I would love to know your thoughts on them. Which one is your favourite? Luscious hardly ever disappoints right?
