I am always in a hunt for good blushes as a perfect blush shade can instantly provide you a flushed look. It’s always a good idea to pick blushes according to skin tone/type as sporting a perfect shade blush can any day make an individual’s face appear more radiant and fresh. Pinks and corals are my favorite shades when it comes to blush but as monsoon season is round the corner, a warm toned neutral blush is what I was searching for, therefore ended up purchasing the rimmel lasting finish 3 in 1 powder blush in 008 spring flower as it appeared quite warm , but let’s see how it actually turned up
As you all know I always like to begin with packaging, after all I love attractive things and blushes does appear quite cute in makeup stash . The rimmel lasting finish 3 in 1 blush comes in trapezoidal pan with a transparent lid and a brush, the lid does closes with a click sound but somehow I am not satisfied with the click as the pan is not sturdy. The blush also comes with a brush applicator which obviously is waste as the bristles are quite rough and nobody would love to swirl rough brushes on their face . As the name says 3 in 1, so yes it’s a trio blush which has a combination of all brown tones with hints of pink . Overall the packaging is average for me .
Online and at rimmel counters
My take on the product:-
I was quite amazed with the multi tonal qualities of this blush as one gets three different shades and textures in one single pan. I swiped these shades individually and found them a bit chalky. They do have decent amount of pigmentation , but what I absolutely admired about this product is that all the three shades have different textures like matte, satin and shimmery and swirling all of them together provides an amazing peach mauve color with hint of shine on the cheeks. The highlight shade in the middle of blush is not overpowering which is quite good as it leaves much of sheen rather than chunks of shimmer. They blend really well plus the overall finish of all the three shades combined with each other in spite of being less pigmented is quite forgiving. I liked the peach mauve shade of the blush as it works well for my skin tone and is universally flattering.
I am blessed with oily skin, so the blush stayed on me for 3-4 hours which is okay as per the price, however the best thing about this blush is the blend ability and shade selection but the longevity and pigmentation could have been better.
For the price tag I found that the blush is easy to apply, blends amazingly and leaves my cheeks with a muted gleam. Disappointing part is the brush which they provide as its rough bristles and size is seriously for no use.
P.S :- Always use all the three shades together to get the right color as individually they are less pigmented
