Maybelline Color Show / Cheeky Glow Blush – Fresh Coral | Review and Swatches

You know that a product is a cult classic when a brand keeps manufacturing it for years and years and today I will talk about one such product. I am not a huge blush wearer but if there is one blush that I always swear by, it is the Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in the shade Fresh Coral. I still have the old packaging of this product although it seems that it has now been rebranded and repackaged as the Maybelline Color Show Blush. The shades and the formula remain the same though, so my review holds true for both the Cheeky Glow and the Color Show versions (so much confusion though!).

Maybelline Color Show / Cheeky Glow Blush - Fresh Coral | Review and Swatches

The shade Fresh Coral is true to its name. It is a warm pinkish coral with muted orange undertones. I feel that this type of a coral shade suits Indian skin tones more than the true pinks. I use this color on my cheeks for a nice coral flush and sometimes mix it in with a bronzer to create a blush cum contour. I also use it on my eyes as an eye shadow that gives a nice feminine touch to my makeup.

The formula is a very soft powder that does not have much chalkiness to it. It blends like a dream on the skin and you can build up the color up to the desired pigmentation without your cheeks looking cakey. I love the super adorable and dinky packaging and would buy this product just for the cuteness factor although it performs really well too.

Here is a picture of me wearing this blush as an eyeshadow on the outer corners of my lids. The powder works really well with a foundation or concealer underneath and stays put all day long.

This product is priced at INR 299 and is one of the most affordable and amazing blushes in the market. Its texture is perfect and you don’t really need anything more expensive unless you are on the hunt for a specific shade. The Maybelline Color Show Blushes are also available in two more shades, Peachy Sweetie, which is a cooler pink, and Creamy Cinnamon which has brown undertones. I am eyeing Creamy Cinnamon next to use as a contour (check out my Blush as a Contour post to find out how!) but if you are looking for a warmer pink blush then Fresh Coral will not disappoint!

I hope that this review was helpful. You can buy all the three shades of the Maybelline Color Show Blush here.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick 109 | Review

Warm weather for me is synonymous with coral lips and loose sundresses. Coral is the perfect blend of orange, red, and pink, which looks great on all skin tones. My favorite coral lipstick for this time of the year is the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick in the shade 109 (Rossetto).

First of all, the packaging of this lipstick is to die for. I love the combination of red and black and the signature with the tiny heart. However, some other shades of Kate Moss lipsticks come in the same packaging and it is a bit hard to tell them apart without uncapping them. I don’t mind doing that in the least because they look so stunning!

The color itself is a muted orange with hints of red. It is definitely a warm toned coral and therefore goes very well with Indian skin tones. The formula is creamy and buildable. One swipe will give you an almost opaque look but two swipes are needed for the perfect pigmentation. I would call it a comfortable semi-matte texture, with a small amount of shine. It lasts on the lips for around 5-6 hours but fades a little by this time and some of the product may settle in the cracks of the lips.

Overall, I am very pleased with the quality of this product, as I am with all the other Rimmel lipsticks I have tried so far. Its pleasant scent is the only thing that reminds me that I have lipstick on, it is that comfortable to wear! Priced at INR 275, this lipstick is definitely a steal and a must have for the summer months!
