REVIEW: Avon Smooth Minerals Blush in Blushed

2:40:00 PM

If you have been reading my blog, you would know that this blush is one of the Avon items I won from AskMeWhats during her 3rd year anniversay Giveaway.  Curious? check it out HERE. Anyway, on to the review.

Product Info from AVON
Contains pure mineral pigments...and enriched with vitamins. 
Free of talc, oil and fragrance. Great for all skin types, even sensitive. Infused with our mineral glow pearls…Avon’s mineral blush illuminates cheeks and helps to bring out skin’s true vibrance. Featherlight airbrushed finish for a healthy radiance. .09 oz. net wt.

Retail Price: Php 199
retails for $10.00 on the avon website

Available in 8 Shades



What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* fragrance-free
* the packaging is very handy and convenient, 
  I don't have to use a separate brush to apply this.
* has a matte finish with very unnoticeable shimmer
* pigmented
* did not experience any irritation
* blends easily
* made of mineral pigments
* available locally

What I don't like...
* Fades easily and doesn't stay long. It starts to fade after 2 - 3 hours or so and I would like to point out that I have dry skin. So I'm not sure how long this will last on oily skin.

My rating: 3 / 5

I do like this blush, my only concern is the lasting power. I don't want to keep reapplying my blush, so I honestly don't reapply it once it fades...hehe

I've tried the Ellana Minerals Blush and that has way better staying power compared to this. You might want to check it out HERE.

This is it for now.

Cheerios!
