Avon Simply Pretty Blush in Blooming Peach: Review and Swatches

Sometimes (actually most of the time!) the miser in me hopes for good pigmented, quality makeup at a really inexpensive price. 😀 When I saw the Avon Simply Pretty blushers I was really excited especially since the entire collection was revamped with better formulation, packaging and quality but at almost the same pocket friendly price I couldn’t ask for more. So I bought Blooming Peach from this collection

Type: Powder Blush
Packaging: A purple circular case with a transparent lid. Comes with a brush
Price: 199 INR
Quantity: 2 g

Blooming Peach is a soft peachy pink color with hints of silver shimmer.

Unfortunately I was not very happy with the product. Read on to know more about the sad story

Likes:

  • Inexpensive; Friendly on the pocket
  • Quantity given is quite a lot for the price we pay. And these are always on offer!

Dislikes:

  • The colour looks lovely and bright in the pan but looks can deceive anyone. The color which you get when you apply this on your cheeks is not exactly the same as what is in the pan.
  • Pigmentation is the biggest problem; the color payoff is terrible; The color just doesn’t show up on my cheeks!!
  • Poor staying power; Before I could get out of the house and travel to a coffee shop and flaunt the color, POOF!! It vanished!!
  • It could have an inbuilt mirror  (I know Im asking for too much for the price we pay for it but if they add this and improve their formulation I wouldn’t mind paying more!)
  • The brush is not of much help. The bristles of the brush/ hair are haywire and its impossible to use it.

Swatch:

I had to scrape some of the blush from the pan to actually swatch it! So it is not chalky. Its just that I have too much on my finger. 😀

Since I have dry skin and this is a powder blush I  thought maybe my skin was the culprit so first I decided to apply a cold cream as a base and then applied the blush; It stayed for an hour longer; that’s it!!

My mom has oily skin so she tried it on and it didn’t last for more than an hour and a half for her! (But she has taken it from me because she loves blushers!!)

Overall I would give this one 2/5. 🙁 Skip it! If you really want to try a blush from Avon do go in for the True Color ones. Im sure you wont be disappointed (will review that soon!)
