~Review & Swatches:Essence Blush Up Blush in Heatwave~

Lately I have become a blush holic.Pretty Pinks and corals can't escape my eyes.I knew I had to have this blush in my collection as soon as I saw it.This is Essence Blush up in "Heatwave".
The packaging in itself is quite decent.It is one of the most pretty blushers in my collection.Due to its transparent box,it looks beautiful as the colors of the sunset can be seen.It would have been a waste really if it would have a non transparent lid!Essence usually comes up with Chic looking products and so this is one of them.It also snaps with a tick,means you can carry it around in your handbag without worrying of damaging it or your bag.This box carries 8 g of product that is pretty much for a blush on.

~A little about the product~
The hair and fashion trend is finally reaching make-up, too! essence is adding a cool and unique blush with a color gradient to the beauty bags of all global girls. the silky, semi-translucent texture with subtle coverage gives your cheeks a gorgeous, fresh look & and the pink to orange color gradient is sure to put you in the mood for springtime!
At a single glance you can see that its not a one color blush but has an ombre effect to it.It moves from two tones to three tones.Orange-Coral-Pink..Yes its a 3 in 1 blush on.Just looking at this lovely thing makes me happy.The finish is matte but when applied together you get that lovely "healthy glow" on your face.
The pigmentation is neither very good nor very bad for this blush on.You may have to pick the color with care.You can use this product for various looks.Either you can apply an orange,pink or a coral blush on or swipe the brush on them horizontally for a mixed effect.I have been using this blush on usually for everyday make up and I noticed that I have to build up the color on my cheeks dabbing the brush lightly onto the blush.I have used the colors individually and together as well & they look pretty both ways.Coral shade has been my favorite this past summers.In autumn I will opt for this lovely orange on the left.
The staying power of the blush on is quite good.It stays for upto 6 hours when used with a face primer.
Here is a swatch on my hand.This is a single swipe without any primer underneath.
From top to bottom
Bright Pink
Hot Orange
A closer view

As you can see in the closer view the blush pigments are loosely scattered.Therefore its a must to blend them carefully.They would look neat and pretty when applied and blended to perfection.If you are a pink or coral blush lover then this beauty is not to be missed.
I bought this from the Essence counter at Al-Fateh Centaurus Mall Islamabad for Rs.720
It can also be ordered online from Just4girls.
