I got the shade ‘Red Cheeks’ from the range last year, as a part of my US makeup haul! It got featured once before in my blush collection post HERE! And yes, I do haul from US every now and then, thanks to all those friends who keep coming back home from there :p Hope you have seen my recent haul as well, which I have blogged HERE !!

Anyways, let’s take a moment and admire how gorgeous the shade looks in the pan! Isn’t it?

The formula is just fantastic! It is a cream blush but not overly creamy. It has great pigmentation and goes opaque in a single swipe! It is not a true red shade… on my skin it looks more of a deep dolly pink sort of color.

It looks a bit scary to be worn as a blush. But once it is fully blended into the skin, it gives gorgeous flush of color to the cheeks!

And because of its nice workable formula and pretty intense color pay off, it can work in many ways …. Than just a blush!

I came up with this look … where I have been wearing it as an eyeshadow color, lip stain and blush!
This look is very wearable, takes minimum effort and easily achievable! Let me show you how ...

Base Makeup:

I always go for lighter base, while doing minimal look. But up to you… depends on the amount of coverage you need.

Eye Makeup:

Step 1:
I dotted the blush all over my eye lid with fingertip.

Step 2:
Blended the color with fingers

Step 3:
Whatever color was remaining on my fingertip, I swiped it lightly along my lower lash line, to balance it with the lid color.

Step 4:
Dabbed a bit of golden shimmery eyeshadow from Maybelline the nudes palette, at the center of the lids.

Step 5:
Blended the golden with the previous blush color! Now applying this golden eyeshadow is optional. But I loved how it turned out <3

Step 6:
Applied black gel liner along upper lash line ! Tada eyes done!

Cheeks:
I made 4-5 dots with the blush on the apples of my cheeks. Then bleneded with fingers in upward motion, same way as I blend any cream in to my skin!

Lips:

This blush is a great multi-tasking makeup product! And I always make sure to carry it when I travel or I am in a hurry…. but still need to do my full face makeup with least number of products possible :)


What do you think, girls? I am simply loving this fresh pink toned makeup look! What about you?
