Despite all the hype about “videshi” makeup stuff in the market, I think there are some great Indian brands as well which deserve the love and attention of every makeup lover J. Notable among these are Colorbar, Lakme and Lotus. Colorbar especially is a favorite with amazing products at decent prices. I especially adore the velvet matte lipsticks and recently the crackle nail polish. I bought Colorbar blush in Plum Brown a couple of months back from an online shopping store and it is an absolute favorite. I use it all the time. In fact the days I use my other blushes my husband politely comments that something is amiss.
The price of this blush is around INR 300 for 6gm of product which is a lot. The price was recently increased from INR 250 to 300. The blush is housed in the top compartment. The bottom compartment contains a small brush and an attached mirror. The blush brush looks pretty okayish but I can never apply blushes with these type of brushes. My Vega blush brush works just fine.
Texture and Pigmentation
The texture of this blush is soft and application is very easy and smooth. No problems with dry skin or allergies. The blush is a beautiful medium brown shade with a matt finish.
The pigmentation is quite good. Of course you cannot compare these blushes to Nyx or Mac blushes but for the price I find the quality quite nice. I need three to four swipes for the color to show. However you do get a nice natural glow rather than a clownish appearance. It stays on for an average two hours after which the color starts fading.
|Swiped 7 to 8 times|
What Do I Not Like
· The staying power is a definite con. You can extend the stay by applying a cream blush underneath.
· The brush is really not very useful unless you are a pro at applying blushes.
· If you like shimmery blushes then this is not for you
Do get this, you will definitely not regret it. As for me I am probably going to buy this shade for the rest of my life.
