this is for the duo expertwear siamese pink
my favorite blush ever
its a soft cool toned pink that softens your overall look without being at all too fairy, or bubblegum, or gray or silver... looks supernatural.
not highly pigmented no but enough! pretty! on me not too shimmery at all. not matte either. extremely buildable when layering as the pigment is low. but perfect. there is no peach coral or brown in this shade. neither obnoxious pink pink. like a soft seashell pink. a no makeup look.... well.. looks like you have it on.. but doesnt look overdone like so many blushes do that just ruin your whole look
I am 38 and learning less is more. the whole face looking all one color (pale) is much better im finding! so this is perfect. before I used to cut off my all pale face.... with stark blush...... too dark and intense which you dont realize you are actually contouring in the wrong spots!
when 38, blush too high, too low, too dark, too close to the nose or eyes etc etc are just all wrong. this is #1 blush for me yay it cannot go wrong no matter the application ,heavy or light,or where it is on the face whatsoever.
and it does a LOT.
I have tried several Maybelline blushes including two different shades of the Expert Wear line. They appear to have a lovely color when looking at it from the case, but when you actually put it on your face? Virtually no color or pigment! I've bought blush where I can put the smallest amount onto the brush and it shows up beautifully - but not this. Save your money. You'd probably get more color on your cheeks by pinching them lol!
I own this blush in the colour "Flash Plum" and I have to say, I am VERY dissapointed! For a start, the colour is way too dark for my skin and makes me look like a doll with really rosy cheeks. Second, the formula is horrible and the blush doesn't stay in place. Lastly, it comes off within an hour of applying it. I don't reccommend buying this blush, there are much better ones out there!
Not very pigmented, doesn't stay very long. Would've given it one lipstick if it weren't for the nice selection of shades.
Forget it, maybelline makes the worst, low-pigmented blush. And don't get me started on the brush. I'm not an expert in brushes but come on this thing scratches my face.
I know it's cheap but still?
I brought this blush at Big Lots since it was only $2, and I like to try new makeup. But this really was disappointing. There is absolutely no pigmentation at all, and I usually like sheer blushes. :(
Just for the heck of it, I even tried swatching it on my hand with a primer. The pigmentation is extremely light. I will not be repurchasing. I can however, recommend it for a beginner who wants to try something extremely sheer and work their way to a darker shade.
I used this every day for over a year and still it wasn't finished, so lots of + for it being long-lasting. Same thing with applying it: for me, a little went a long way and looked natural (I had Rosewood) and didn't disappear at all during the day. It doesn't have the special "it"-factor for me and therefore I won't give it a higher rating although it deserves it. It's a great matte blush but since I prefer a bit more lusture in the blush I'll stay at 3.
The shade I brought mine in was rose, the pigmentation is horrific. I cannot get any of the product onto a brush, even the one it came with! I cannot use it as I can't get any product out of the pan. It's a shame because the colour is lovely.
This is the only blush I've ever used. It doesn't break me out. But like others have said you do have to apply a lot just to get the color showing.
I bought them 50% off so not so much of a loss. I got mocha velvet which is a light brown color and Plush plum or something like that, which is a light purple. I was disappointed in these colors. As in other reviews, little to no pigmentation unless you use their blush brush that is brittle and hard, to actually dig in the product. By then, when i finally apply it, ive already set off my patchy areas. the harsh strokes i need for blush to get on my cheeks doesnt look natural either.
Solution: i literally dig into the product for it to come out, i mix it with my primer or moisturizer for a creme like blush and use it like that. For now, thats how ill use it up. Although, not much pigmentation, i do like the colors because i dont have any like them and they oil free and dont clog pores.
