Ben Nye Cream Blush in Coral - Review

Ben Nye Creme Rouge in CR 7 Coral
It Claims: Nothing :) Just a innocent (at times, tacky) looking cream blush.

Ingredients: see Image below

Price: Rs. 300 for 14 gms of blush!

Shade reviewed: CR 7 - Coral

Available: at New Beauty Centre, Khar


What I liked: 
Ingredient Listing
1. Really pigmented - a small swipe will get your cheeks all peachy, plus the texture is really soft & it blends very, very easily

2. The finish is almost matt. You know how some cream blushes leave behind a rather shiny, creamy finish that starts to look a bit oily with time? This one doesn't. It dries and blends to a very natural looking finish and it is also not sticky at all on the skin

3. Matt! I really don't like shimmer in my blushes.

4. Economical - I can't remember the last time I got a cream blush at such a good rate of 300/-, plus you get quite a bit - 14 gms! Even NYX gives only 6 gms at best.

5. The shade coral is a beautiful shade for warm toned girls - this is going to look super natural on you! On me, because the quality of the product is so awesome, it blends beautifully and looks good, but a bit unnatural if I go overboard. I have to make sure to use a very tiny amount, as even a little extra looks kinda obvious on me.

6. They have a really wide range at the store - at last count they had 10 shades & a number of them were very unique & pretty!

7. It is perfume free, not that I care, but for those with sensitive noses - take heed :)

What could be better: 

1. I guess this could be more easily available for sure. I have been wanting to get their creme rouge 6 color wheel for the longest time, but it is always out of stock.

2. The packaging is really crappy - cheap plastic that is prone to scratches. The lid has to be screwed in, and as you can see I have already made a cut into the blush thanks to it.

Overall: I was one of those people who saw Band Baaja Baaraat really late, on a TV telecast. One of things that stuck me about the movie was Anushka Sharma's very peachy coral blush. I knew that MAC had a similar shade. But I was a bit reluctant to shell out a grand & some more as I haven't had very good results with peach colored cosmetics (cool undertones & warm peach shades aren't really best friends, you know!).

When I saw this, I knew it was God's way of letting me try this shade (ok, we beauty bloggers are dramatic, bear with us). It was priced beautifully, the color was an perfect match! I bought this almost a year ago, and it has been pending review since then.

So as I found out, coral peaches aren't really my color in blushes or lipsticks. But I was wowed by the quality and I did go back to pick up another shade - a rosy pink one that looks more natural on me.

Have you tried Ben Nye Creme Rouges?
