Oriflame Studio Artist cream blushes are the current rage and after trying them out, I know why there are rave reviews everywhere. I've always shied away from cream blushes because they can be really difficult to blend and that's where the Oriflame product scores majorly. These are not really like the traditional cream blushes but a cross between a watery stain and cream blush. That's what makes the blush blend well and give a very pretty and healthy flush to the cheeks.
|Oriflame Studio Artist Cream Blushes Soft Peach and Pink Glow|
I love the packaging of the product. It's not in a pan but in a tube which makes it easy to carry around. Besides, the transparent packaging allows for the color to show through and it looks so pretty!. Like I said earlier, the texture and consistency of the blush is really good. It feels light and non-greasy and gives a very natural look.
I have the shades Soft Peach, a really light peach which will go very well with fair to medium skin tones and Pink Glow, which is my favorite. On my complexion, Soft Peach hardly shows up but if you are fair then this can be a lovely everyday blush for you. Pink Glow is a more vibrant pink and even though it looks quite bright in the tube, once blended, it's a very pretty pink that will work well on all skin tones. If you want, you can wear it on your lips as well for a light wash of color during the day. I do that pretty regularly and love how it looks. The best part about the blushes is that the color is buildable so you can wear it sheer or layer it on for more color. The staying power is around four to five hours and it does not get patchy over time. To make the blush last longer, I sometimes use it as a base and pat on some powder blush. You can try that too. I have normal to dry skin so I like the dewy finish it gives. If you have oily or combination skin, these should not be a problem for you because of its slightly watery texture.
I wore Pink Glow on Christmas and unfortunately the camera didn't quite pick up the blush color properly. Can you still make out the light pink cheeks??
The Oriflame Studio Artist cream blushes are available through Oriflame reps for Rs 549 for 20 ml and it is a pretty good buy. Even if you are a non-cream blush lover, these I'm sure will get a lot of love from you. The shades, texture, consistency and pigmentation has won me over. The only con I see is the staying power and I wish these lasted a few hours more. Other than that, no complains at all. I love this formula!
