Hey Everyone!

Keeping up with the Affordable Makeup Series, I’ll be talking about probably one of the best budget blushes available in India. Its the Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in the shade Fresh Coral. There are total of 3 shades that are available in this range- the other two being Peachy Sweetie and Creamy Cinnamon. All of them are quite popular, especially with college-going girls but for the sake of the review, I’ll just be talking about the shade Fresh Coral today.

Review

The blush comes in a little plastic packaging with a transparent lid. The packaging, I would say is not flimsy but it isn’t sturdy either. That means that it won’t break on its own but if you drop it, you might damage the product (just the way I did while shooting pictures for this review!). The texture of this blush is very soft and smooth. The powder is very fine and feels like silk as it glides over your skin. It is highly pigmented so you just need to tap a little bit into the product. The blendability of this blush has some issues and may sometimes take a while longer to blend properly.

The shade, Fresh Coral, is a pinkish coral shade. The warmth in the shade makes it quite flattering especially on Indian skintones. Its one of those shades that instantly gives you a glow from within. The satin-like finish of this product adds to its charm. It gives a very subtle glow without looking overtly shimmery or unnatural. Of course, there is no visible shimmer in the product. This shade will look beautiful on light to medium complexions, especially with warm undertones to their skin. Since it packs a little of pink and a little of coral in it, I find that it goes with a variety of lipsticks! The staying power is about average with it lasting about 3-4 hours on my oily skin.

Overall Thoughts

The Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in Fresh Coral is a beautiful shade for light to medium complexions looking for a natural looking blush. Its pigmentation and texture are amazing for a drugstore product. Apart from the wear-time and some blendability issues, there is nothing you’d not like with this product! The affordable price tag is an icing on the cake.
