I am a newbie when it comes to blushes.. only have a handful of them in my kitty (shall show you them in case you are interested!).
Today I’m gonna talk about one of my new love from my recent acquisitions… VIVO Baked Blush in Rouge Shimmer.
Price: GBP 4 (Got for GBP 2 each) for 8 g.
Shelf life: 12 months from opening.
It comes in a huge pan with a transparent lid that click locks snugly. The details of the shade, ingredients & everything else about the product is available at the bottom of the pan.
The way I see it:
One look at the blush pan, you are bound to fall in love with it.
There is enough product that would last you a lifetime – even if you use it twice daily you would be left with a good amount of the blush at the end of the year! 😀
The shade is a beautiful warm pink with very finely milled shimmer & crazily pigmented too, that would look gorgeous on all Indian skin tones.
There is absolutely no fallout when swiping the brush over the product & the texture of the blush is silky too.
The shimmer is not OTT and actually gives a lovely, healthy flush to the skin.
One swipe of the brush on this baked beauty is good enough to pickup enough product for application on one cheek. This is one shade where you can go overboard easily & end up looking like a clown.
The blush stays puts on me easily for 5 hrs. and then goes off completely including the shimmer!!
I like the fact that the shimmer too weans off along with the blush, making this blush suitable for office wear too with subtle makeup.
The shade ‘Rouge Shimmer’ is for all those warm pink lovers out there & go for it next time VIVO has some offers.
This is how it looks on me –
Don’t bother about the crazy look & smile in the above pic… I was in a clickety-click mo(o)de! :p
Drawbacks could be no mirror or brush – but I rarely use both of these even if available… so not really cons for me!
VIVO has totally 4 baked blushes – Peaches & Cream, Rosy, Rouge Shimmer & Cinnamon Glow.
I infact picked 3 blushes from VIVO exclusing Peaches & Cream! Beware its a cult favorite blush with beauty bloggers abroad & was OOS the time I ordered!
Outta other 3 blushes I picked, I only have this one with me now – I gifted one & sold another! 🙂
But I can vouch for their quality & color payoff! 😀
