Oriflame Studio Artist Cream Blush Soft Peach: Swatch, Review and FOTD

Oriflame Studio Artist Cream Blush Soft Peach: Swatch, Review and FOTD

All makeup addicts have a special soft corner for blushes. I am always on a look out for cream blushes, since they are comparatively easier to apply and give a very natural finish. Plus it can be layered with powder blushes for more intense look. I invariably reach out for cream blushes when I want a soft glow for day time look. I always had a love and hate relationship with Oriflame products but my sister swears by its teatree essential oil. Also I really loved the powder blush “Pretty Pink” I reviewed here on ETM. Few days back I went to my Oriflame auntie’s house and she showed me these blush tubes and I squealed like a baby. It looked so damn cute; I had to buy at least one.

Packaging: Comes in small transparent plastic tube, looks pretty decent. It’s extremely hygienic because of tube packaging. Travel friendly. Gets full marks from me on packaging front. 🙂
 
My experience: 
Let’s talk about the texture first. It has the most amazing oil free water based texture. I love that non greasy feeling. It’s almost like a water based stain but not as runny. Pigmentation varies from shade to shade. Soft peach is slightly low on pigmentation but that makes it easier to wear. 
As the name suggests, it’s a soft peachy shade which adds glow to the face. On my medium to fair skin it looks so pretty. As if I am glowing with happiness. It’s a great every day shade. Contains very fine shimmer but it’s so subtle that I felt its shimmer free. I used a microscope to magnify the shimmer particles. :P. Staying power is pretty average. Hardly 4 hours on my dry cheeks. Humph!!
Swatch!

Pros:
  • Light weight texture.
  • Buildable pigmentation.
  • Hygienic tube packaging.
  • Super easy to blend.
  • Gives a dewy fresh glow to skin.
  • No chunky shimmer particles.
  • No brush required. Tee hee.
  • Non greasy.
  • No funny smell.
  • Affordable.
Cons:
  • Average staying power.
  • Parabens and mica. Few people are allergic to mica I heard.
Final thoughts: We have serious dearth of cream blushes in India. So at this price it’s a steal. A complete must have. I love everything about it. Best part is that it can be used by girls with oily skin as well.
Do I recommend it? Yes yes yes!!
Rating: 4.5/5.
That’s it for now beauties. See you again with another gem in my kitty. :*
 
ETM Edit* Looks sooooo good on you Vandana. You apply your blushes really really well I must say. And yes it does add that happy glow on to your face.
