Today I’m reviewing a blush I picked up at the drug store from Maybelline. I’ve seen their commercials for Fit Me foundations and concealers, but had no idea they made blush too. I bought this basically because I was browsing and wanted a coral/orangey blush but didn’t want to spend $31 on one from Tarte. Maybe I’m too used to the boldness of products at Sephora, but I was a bit miffed with the presence of so many beigey, greyish BORING “blushes” from most of the brands in the drugstore. I saw this one in ‘Medium Coral’ and immediately purchased it.
WHAT I LIKE:
-This was only $8
-The colour is gorgeous
-As a company of L’oreal, Maybelline also no longer tests on animals (click here to view their policy)
WHAT I DON’T LIKE:
-This blush isn’t very pigmented and needs to be applied generously to really see the colour
-Since I was in a rush I didn’t read the back. This contains parabens. Grrr!
I adore the colour of this blush, I just wish it was more pigmented and didn’t contain parabens. You really need to build it up to actually see it, but that’s where the $8 price tag probably comes in. I wouldn’t call this a “Drugstore Win” and I still want the Tarte blush, but this is a great blush if you want something really subtle and forgiving in application.
