Product Review: Skinfood Rose Cheek Chalk in Rose Peach

Saturday, October 6, 2012

     Good morning guys! This review has been sitting on my blog bin for quite some time now. I think it's time to share my thoughts about this product after months of use. I also want to lessen my backlogs that's why I'm wide-awake till now editing some posts and watermarking photos. I mentioned on my previous posts that I'm a lip balm gal. Did I mentioned that I'm also a lip cheek tint addict? Well that was after graduating college. If my memory serves me right, I can't leave the house without my cheek tint on. I feel naked without it. But when my skin started breaking out badly, a year after graduation I stopped using cheek tints. I looked so sickly without it until I met bb creams that gave my skin a glow and healthy flush as if I'm wearing a blush.

     Even though I'm addicted to cheek tints before, I also tried using powder blush. My first powder blush was E.L.F. Natural Radiance in Glow. I love this blush to bits but the staying power was so so for my cheeks. I'm lemming for a NARS Orgasm blush but it's too pricey for a stay at home mom like me. I said to myself that I'll buy expensive makeups when I already have a stable job. 

     So when I was browsing and looking for a cheaper dupe or closer dupe of NARS Orgasm aside from E.L.F., I found this cute little blush from Skinfood's website but still the price was a bit steep for me that time. I waited for many many months and after some time I was lucky to be one of J's winner for her birthday giveaway. I won this set  and I'm very happy that this set also includes Benefit Cha Cha Tint that I will review on my next post. 

     This is the only cream to powder blush in my makeup stash right now. I think I need a backup cause I've already hit the pan but I'm still having second thoughts on what shade to choose. The shade of this is blush is #2 Rose Peach, I think shade #1 Rose Pink looks cute too. 
Skinfood Rose Cheek Chalk in Rose Peach
Containing moist, soft rosehip oil, this cream-type pearl blusher provides a sheer, gorgeous makeup finish. Its creamy texture allows for easy application, so it can be applied well over powder. A variety of contained pearls reflect light in different directions, creating the appearance of depth and radiance.

This blush comes with a puff applicator. J discarded the puff applicator and replaced it with this sponge.

Swatch twice at the back of my hand, there's a bit of shimmer

On my cheek, sorry for the uneven application. I was in a hurry when I applied this blush
What I like:
  • The most cost –effective blush that I’ve used. 
  • The finish is matte even though it has a bit of shimmer.
  • Easy to apply from cream to powder finish.
  • Amazingly long lasting. More than 8 hours with no blush retouch and there’s still color to my cheeks. 
  • Nice color payoff. 
  • Pleasant fragrance. 
What I don't like:
  • Very small tub.
  • I guess the puff doesn't work because the seller replaced it with a sponge.
Will I repurchase? Yes, I want to try the rose pink shade.


Recommendation:

     I give this blush a 4.5/5 rating. I always use this blush when I go to events and when I go on a date with ze hubby. This blush looks good on photos too and very natural in person. I think the puff that comes with it was effin hard to use so substituting it with a sponge will do the job. I apply this on top of my powder foundation or after applying bb cream. 

     What's your favorite blush? Thanks for sharing! Have a great day ahead :D

Good Times!~
