Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush 'Creamy Cinnamon' Review, Swatch, FOTD

Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush 'Creamy Cinnamon' Review, Swatch, FOTD


Hey beauty buffs !!

When it comes to blushes in Indian beauty market, affordable options are very limited! Even so called drugstore brands generally keep the pricing a little on higher side for blushes.

Maybelline was the first game changer when they introduced the very famous cheeky glow blushes! ‘Fresh Coral’ from this range happens to be my all time favorite blush! So much so, that I wanted to grab other two shades from the range as well. Finally I managed to get hold of this shade ‘Creamy Cinnamon’ and my today’s review is all about it…

Price: INR 299 for 7 gm of product. I paid INR 195 during amazon sale.

What I think about it….

Packaging:

It comes in a tiny compact like packaging which looks very cute and takes minimal space in my kitty. The lid shuts tightly, however the plastic material is not very sturdy. I dropped it once and the lid cracked a bit! It did not cause any harm to the product inside though (thank God!). Some of us might have issue with not having a mirror with the packaging. But honestly I am not a pro at blush application, in fact it is only lately that I have started playing up with blushes! So I hardly reapply/touch up on the go.

Texture and Pigmentation:

Very smooth and soft and not at all powdery! Formula is very blendable, does not go patchy or settle in open pores. I could spot fine silver sheen to it in the pan but once you apply it goes complete matte! Pigmentation is neither too crazy nor too weak, just perfect to give right amount of flush to the face. Even if you are a beginner, you can rock it as a pro J

Shade:

The shade shows up as a lovely neutral on my complexion! A perfect mix of pink peach and brown which looks flattering with any lipstick shade, any eye makeup and any outfit! No matter how much you layer this up, it still looks so natural and fresh! This has become my go to blush shade for work or any day time event!

Staying Power:

I am not much into hi-fi branded blushes, so cannot compare this baby with other counterparts as far as staying power is concerned. What all I can say is, I apply this before leaving for work and after a hectic day when I return home I can still spot some color in my flushed face!

I like to place the blush in a triangular sort of shape along the cheekbone.. not right on the apples of the cheeks! I feel this is the most flattering way of blush application for my kind of face shape. What do you think?

Dislikes:

  • Nothing as such!

Final Word:

I love it to the core! I wish Maybelline would launch lot of new shades to this cheeky glow range! I would buy them all!!!

Noticed the overall flushy glow? I always make sure to dust some blush in the middle of my forehead, tip of my nose and chin!
If you are fair to medium skin toned and still have not got this, this is high time you bring it home! You will surely thank me for the recommendation. If you are a dusky beauty, do try it in the store before purchasing! This might work for you as well J
