(This is the only place I could find the claims on these, but I have the Europian versions, so my palettes containt 5 shades, not 4, but I do believe that the claims are the same)
So, Loreal just came out with these blush palettes, and I have to say that I wasn’t really sure if I should get them or not, because the pans are a bit small and I also thought they would be more of a dry powder formula, but these aren’t dry at all. They almost feel like a cream instead of a powder, except for the shade “Peach Fling” which is a bit dry and chalky looking. It is also the only shade that has glitter in it, while the other shades have more of a sheen to them.
Now, when it comes to the pigmentation on these I do think that they are very pigmented, and for my skintone I would’ve rather wanted them to be a little bit less pigmented, especially the brighter/darker shades, because they can look a bit too bright if you aren’t carefull when you apply them, but if you do apply a bit to much you could always go over it with a little bit of your facepowder to sheer it out.
However, when it comes to the lighter shades I find that these are easy to build up, and they’re obviously not as bright as the darker ones, so these might be a bit easier to work with if you’re a beginner or if you are pale like I am.
But, I also think that these shades are wearable for a lot of different skintones, which I do appreciate.
Now, when it comes to the lasting power on these blushes, I do find that they fade throughout the day, so by the 6th hour or so they have faded quite a bit.
But they don’t really fade away completly, so you will still be able to see some color on your cheeks by the end of the day.
And you could also put on a little bit more if it fades a bit too much for you.
Other than that the only thing I don’t like is that the pans are a bit too small, so it can be a bit difficult to put your brush in only one shade, so you do have to be a bit carefull when you dip your brush into the palette.
But I do think that these are good blushes, they’re not the best I’ve ever tried, but they are good enough that I would recommend checking them out if you’re interested.
I got mine from H&M for 169nok a piece.
