…………….deals with everything feminine, make up and beauty being an integral part

I have posted after a brief pause. Actually, I got busy in customizing my blog.

Herewith is the review of a powder blush from brand “Jordana”. Its a US based brand, which is very affordable and quality is in sync with the price. Not all of their products are good, but their blushes are commendable.  I got it from “cherryculture” about a year back. The shade discussed here is “Sandalwood”.  First lets talk about the color, Its a woody pink color with neutral undertones. A girly color which imparts a healthy flush to the face.

As for the pigmentation, it fares quite low though it can be built up. I have applied it very heavily here, else it doesn’t show up. For fairer complexions it would show up with a few swipes, but definitely needs heavy layering up for wheatish to dusky skin tones like mine. It may not show up on darker skin tones say above Mac NC45. As for me its a perfect day color, gives me a natural flushed look without being over the top.It looks chalky in the pan but when applied it gets blended really well.

Image

The staying power is poor. It lasts for up to 4 to 5 hours on a prepared face, that is I mean primed and the foundation is of heavy coverage. On tinted moisturizers and compact, it lasts for about 3 hrs.

The packaging is flimsy, with the top glass cover coming out from its casing. Needs careful handling 😛

Price: Around $2.49 from cherryculture.

Summary: Its a very good blush for novices. Would look great on lighter skin tones. Also the fact that it can be built up it good, otherwise might go cakey if not applied with expert hands. Owing to its poor pigmentation, you can never end up looking like a clown :). Recommended for the price and quality it offers. A daily wear blush which is not loud, makes for ideal office wear. The cons are its low pigmentation and poor staying power and contains parabens.

So, what do you feel about these blushes? I shall review one more from this range in the upcoming posts.

Product Score: 3.5/5
