I went to the drugstore on my plans to buy a blush. One criteria was that it had to be bright. Maybelline had a gorgeous selection of shades and this almost neon orange blush called Peach Pop immediately caught my eye. When I got home I was so exited to swatch it. My thoughts were; I hope you’re precious because I don’t have high hopes for you, hahaha.
First of I must say that the packaging is so cool! It looks so high-end, true luxury considering that Maybelline is a drugstore brand.
I am really impressed by the pigment it offers, and the colour is so summery. You’re probably thinking: Heidi, another peach coloured makeup product? But, this blush also has tiny gold shimmers in it. Shimmers usually scare people but this blush has more of a satin look to it and does not make your skin look oily. For the girls that have a dry cheek area a shimmery blush is a good option because it brings luminosity and brightens dull skin. Only a light sweep of this blush is enough for a look that is not too over-done.
The texture of the blush is fine, soft and it blends easily. It doesn’t feel powdery at all for a powder blush. I also didn’t notice any huge fading during the casual working day. My cheeks looked healthy all day and I had a nice natural looking flush.
I really like this blush and I honestly didn’t expect much from it. Maybelline offers even more colours that are suitable from fair to dark skin tones. I am interested in trying out more shades. This has become one of my favourite blushes in my small collection. It will be loved dearly this summer.
