Review: Maybelline Colorama blush in 10115:31
I saw these blushes in the store so many times and never took a second look. Until I saw them on some blogs. I only have 3 powder blushes, so I am starting to realize I should buy more blushes not nail polishes :).
I bought this light peach Maybelline Colorama blush in the shade 101. It's a light peach to pink shade with gold shimmer. The packaging is plastic black and transparent. The blush is really small, great to carry around. It doesn't say on the packaging how much blush it contains. It costs 2.89 €, which I think is a great price.
When I swatched it, I got almost no color, just the shimmer. It swatches very light, but you can definitely build up the color. I like it, because I am used to pigmented blushes and this one seems to be a nice change. To just get a little flush of color is refreshing.
The shimmer in it is gold, so perfect for warm skin tones or anyone who wants a nice gold glow to cheeks. I actually think that it acts as a highlighting blush. I love the sheen and glow that it gives to the skin, but up close the shimmer is too big for my taste. I do like the overall effect, though. Oh and warning the shimmer can transfer to you boyfriend's face, so maybe not the best blush for cuddling :).
Now, if only blogger wouldn't blur most of my photos. Gosh! Do you have this problem too? I don't know how to get rid of blogger alternating my photos anytime I upload them. Maybe blogger compresses them, since they are really big. Anyways, here is how it looks like on me.
Conclusion: pretty fair shade for all those fair ladies, a bit too big shimmer, great because it gives a highlighting effect, not for those who want extremely pigmented matte blushes.
Have you tried any of the Maybelline Colorama blushes?
