Faces Minerals Blush in Amber Rose: Review and Swatches


Being a huge Faces fan I obviously jumped at the chance of any discounts on the products. I picked up a nail polish set and this blush at a fifty percent discount during the sale. Faces minerals blush in Amber Rose is just beautiful and I am so happy with my purchase that I wish I had gotten a backup as well. The warm orange brown colored blush suits my dark complexion to the T and the minute golden shimmer add a touch of radiance. The blush is originally priced at INR 400 for 6 g of product. However I got a whopping fifty percent off so got it for just 200 bucks, and I have to say it is a steal at this price.

The packaging of this product is good..sturdy and practical. There is a tiny mirror and a small blush brush provided with the Minerals blushes.



The best part about the blush of course is that it is pigmented but not overtly so. You can keep it light for a more day time look or choose to build up the color for the evenings. It looks great on warm skin but I don’t know how it would fare on fairer skin tones. It would look warm and pretty I guess if not used with heavy hand. The texture is smooth and much better than the normal Faces blushes I have. The staying power I would say is approximately the same. It lasts for around fours hours only. Here are the swatches of the blush.





My recommendation: If you have a dusky skin tone like mine then it is a great blush. BTW can anyone suggest dupes for this product?
