My experience with Colorbar Blush – Peachy Rose:-
It is beautiful peachy blush with subdued pink tones. I like the subtle shimmers in the blush. The shimmers are very minute and won’t look blingy or glittery. The color imparts a nice glow to the face and can be worn during day as well as night.
The Blush has soft and slightly powdery texture but comes up easily on the brush. The pigmentation of the blush is good and gives a nice peachy color in single stroke. It blends beautifully on cheeks with a regular blush and doesn’t have much fallout. The blush is absolutely buildable and the color can be intensified for the desired look.
However, Similar to the Just Earth blush the staying power is not great and the blush fades away soon giving a maximum of 4 hrs of coverage.
The blush will look lovely with most coral pink and orange lipsticks. I would also love to pair this blush with a brown black Smokey eye look.
Pros of Colorbar Blush – Peachy Rose:-
- Nice peachy –pink blush with subtle shimmers
- Soft smooth texture
- Decently pigmented
- Value for money as the quantity you get will last you really a long time
- Clear lid help in identifying the shade of the blush easily
- Small mirror at the base of the pan helps in touch-ups
- The blush gets applied smoothly on cheeks..
Cons of Colorbar Blush – Peachy Rose:-
- Contains Talc as its main ingredient and has all sorts of Parabens
- Poor quality plastic packaging which is prone to breakage
- Low staying power
Recommendation:-I like the see through round pan packaging of the blushes but its fragile and wont survive a fall. Colorbar Blush – Peachy Rose is a lovely peachy pink shade with a hint of shimmer which is not OTT. The shimmers are fine and barely make their presence felt but adds shine to the cheeks. The blush is extremely pigmented and gives a natural flush of pink color to the cheeks but the sad part is it doesn’t stay long and fades off within 4 hours of application.
It is a beautiful color which will look more vibrant on fair skin tones. Though, it will suit wheatish tones as well but might not be a good choice for duskier skin tones. At such an affordable price this blush is worth a try.
