Maybelline Cheeky Glow "Peachy Sweetie" Blush: Swatch, Review And FOTD

Maybelline Cheeky Glow “Peachy Sweetie” Blush

 
I told you I got a bunch of Maybelline goodies for myself last week. 😀 So don’t raise that eyebrow yet. More Maybelline reviews coming your way. O:)
I don’t know why but when I am shopping offline, its always just one or maximum two brands that I can focus on. This time while passing through the counters of Pantaloons (the only place near to my place at Kolkata :-|), I couldn’t resist going through these tiny little pots and of course I had to try at least one. As Peachy Sweetie looked absolutely girly and pretty I picked it up without pondering much. 🙂

Price: INR 225/- for 7 gm
BTW 7 gm is the maximum quantity I have seen in a blush till date. So going by the quantity the pot seems too tiny. I am not sure how they managed to put that much amount in such a tiny thing.

My Experience: 
The first thing that will come to your mind for sure is the size of this blush. It is almost the same size as a MAC blush refill. Yes, that tiny. The packaging is not classy but it is cute and girly. Very apt for the people it is aimed at. I am sure teenagers are in love with this cutie. 🙂

True to its name, the color is peach with a hint of pink. It would be most appropriate for wheatish-lighter skin tone. On dusky beauties this may not show up well. In case you liked this one then you can try Fresh Coral from the same range as that has more color in it to compliment your dusky skin. 🙂

The texture is amazingly soft and has a satiny feel to it. Up close you can detect very finely milled shimmer as well but that does not show up on skin and just adds a hint of glow without changing the finish to a shimmery one. I am not a fan of shimmers in my face or lip products but I love it when blushers have infused shimmer in them without altering the finish and texture on skin. If you like matte or satin finish in blushers then this one is just perfect. 🙂

Pigmentation is good but not amazing. The swatch below shows two swipes of the blusher with my finger. Unlike many blushers, for example Avon True Color Blush And MAC Matte Blushes- that pick color only when picked with a brush, this one is soft enough to get enough color on your fingers. There are people who prefer finger to a brush and this one blends very easily with finger as well.

Even after being decently pigmented it is impossible to go wrong with this one. The color is such that it just adds that light natural pink flush to your cheek. I usually need 2 swipes to get the desired pigmentation on my face. If you are new to blushes then you can manage with one and If you really like your blushes to be seen then you can build up on the pigmentation with more swipes.

At the price it retails, I never expected such a nice product. I am actually quite bowled over by the quality of it if I ignore just one thing. The staying power. With a base makeup below, it stays on for 4 hours when I am not going out. Last week I tried it on many times in the humid climate of Kolkata outside the comfort of my home and by the end of 3 hours I couldn’t detect a hint of it on my face. It kind of vanishes but thankfully does not leave the face patchy. So you either touch it up after every 2-3 hrs or just roam around without a blush on. O:)
Personally I do not mind it vanishing off. For occasions I need to be picture perfect I have my long stay blushes. So this one fits my bill for an everyday use cheek color. 🙂

My Rating: 3.75 out of 5
For not being able to survive the whole day or at least 4-5 hours outside.
My Recommendation: When it comes to a blush, I am not too picky as long as the texture is good. Its mostly the texture and blend-ability in a blush that makes me go back to it again and again and this one scores amazingly well on those two grounds. So if you are like me then go for it without a second thought. If you like your blushes to be long staying then it does not stand a chance with you. So take your call based on your priority. However if you are just beginning with blushes then this is a must have and may be the best one to start your journey with. 🙂
