Oriflame Very Me Cherry My Cheeks blush in Sweet Coral: Review/Swatch

Good evening!
How was your day? Suffering from Monday blues? I have something to brighten up your mood: a natural, everyday-wear kind of blush to add the right amount of colour to your day and to your cheeks 🙂 Put your hands together and welcome this tiny beauty, Oriflame Very Me Cherry My Cheeks blush in the shade Sweet Coral (that’s the longest product name I’ve seen so far :P) which bears testimony to the phrase “All good things come in small packages” 😉

What Oriflame says about their Very Me Cherry My Cheeks blush:
“Accentuate those gorgeous cheeks with powder blush in fresh shades. Goes on smooth and soft for perfectly rosy cheeks.”
Price:INR 329 for 2g
Shelf Life: 2.5 years from the date of manufacture.
Ingredients (taken from Oriflame website):
Talc, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Dimethicone, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Caprylyl Glycol, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Tocopheryl Acetate, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Parfum
This is my first Oriflame product and it has already got all my love! First off, it looks super cute and tiny, you can slip it in your wallet or jeans pocket and it won’t create a noticeable bulge. It packs in just 2 grams of product and might very well be the only blush which I would end up finishing 😛
It is well pigmented. It is not insanely pigmented like the Sleek blushes, but pigmented enough to give sufficient colour on your cheeks in two swirls. The shade is a subtle pinky coral, perfect for office. It would suit fair-medium skin toned girls best.
It is a matte blush (yay!) with a very smooth texture. The staying power is good, it stays for 4-5 hours on me when worn over a base. Though this blush has impressed me in many ways, it has a few flaws too: I did not find it easy to blend these and since the packaging is too tiny you might find it hard to use large blush brushes (like the RT blush brush) for applying this.
At the end of the day, however, this one is a complete winner for me! There are only 2 shades in this range and I’ll be reviewing the other shade soon 🙂 
Summing it up:
  • Cute packaging
  • A subtle matte shade which is perfect for office
  • Good staying power
  • Smooth texture
  • Price is reasonable for the quality of the product (and it is almost always available at a reduced price, which is great!).
  • Contains parabens
  • Availability is limited, available only through Oriflame representatives.

Final word: Grab this when it is on a discount and you won’t regret it, it is worth every penny. You need to layer it multiple times if you are dusky but for fair-medium skinned beauties this is a treat!
