It was such a lovely surprise when I managed to get my hands on a a display that hadn't been interrupted and every single product was in pristine condition (a miracle considering Essence products have no seals). Surprisingly it was only the blush in Ice Bomb that I found appealing so I picked that one up for $4.95.
This makes me think a little of the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes (or whatever they are called), not that I have actually tried them. I feel like the concept is quite similar, and certainly the packaging seems to reflect that.
The packaging, as is with most Essence products, does look cheap and is quite flimsy, but it is perfectly acceptable considering all of their products cost almost nothing. This is quite a small blush but the product is shaped like a dome so I feel like you would get many uses from it. The minty green print with the bright pink doesn't work magnificently, but it's not the worst packaging I've ever seen.
The product is a really strange texture, certainly not mousse like or creamy, but not really a powder either. On the skin it glides quite effortlessly although I really struggled to get it to blend when using my fingers. Using a stippling brush was a little easier but not perfect.
This blush is a very unique colour, seemingly cool toned in the pan but a warmer peach shade on the skin with almost a silver shimmer running through it. I struggled to make this work and found that it looked a little garish on my skintone which is more suited to warm pinks or gold toned shimmers.
The lasting power on this is wonderful. It seems as though once it is on the skin it really 'sets', hence why it is a bit of a struggle to blend.
I do like the concept of this blush but unfortunately the formula and shade wasn't a real stand out for me this time. I am glad I purchased it and I will use it but I wouldn't get any more.
I give this 6/10.
Great review, sounds nice but don't think it would work for me!ReplyDelete
Thanks, it certainly was an interesting kind of product!Delete
I actually really like this blush. It looks like a nice peachy highlight on me and I found it easy to blend with my fingers. Did you blend before powdering? And yes, I agree, really like the staying power!ReplyDelete
Wish they had more shades of this though!
That's so good, I wish it had worked out a little better with me! More shades would be good!Delete
Aw, I'm a bit sad to hear how it didn't work as well for you. I absolutely love this blush - the shade, the texture, the blendability (is that even a word? haha). I actually tried looking for another back up but couldn't find one :(ReplyDelete
It sounds like so many people really liked this, strange how products work so differently for different people! Fingers crossed you come across a backup!Delete
I adore this blush and found it really easy to blend, sorry to hear that you didn't. I have tried the Dream Bouncy blushes and this one is much nicer and more pigmented by far :)ReplyDelete
That's so interesting to hear, because I've always loved the idea of the Bouncy Blushes and it's surprising to hear that they aren't all that flash!Delete
A shame that it wasn't amazing for you! I actually purchased this myself but have yet to try it (I'm SO lazy when trying new products!) The colour does look pretty though! xxReplyDelete
Haha, oh Jasmine! I've been trying to work with it but I can't get it to be as magical as it is for everyone else!Delete
