Ben Nye Cream Rouge in Sandy Rose - Review
|Ben Nye Cream Rouge in Sandy Rose - Such Tacky Packaging!|
Ingredients: see Image below
Price: Rs. 300/- for 7 gms of blush
Shade reviewed: CR - 3 Sandy Rose
Available: at New Beauty Centre, Khar
|Ingredients: Ben Nye Cream Blush|
What I liked:
1. Really pigmented - a small swipe will get your cheeks all rosy, plus the texture is really soft & it blends very, very easily. It sets to a very natural finish.
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. As a result it tends to stay on for at least 5-6 hours. It fades but very gently & never looks streaky.
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 - 7 gms! Even NYX gives only 6 gms at best.

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.
2. The packaging is really crappy - cheap plastic that is prone to scratches. As you can see in the image above.
3. The color of the blush doesn't look that great with red, purple or deep berry lip colors, as it doesn't have an undercurrent of red in it. It looks best only with pinky brown and natural peachy shades.
Recommended: Yes! This shade for cool toned girls looking for a natural daily blush to pair with their nude/natural lipsticks & the product line for all blush lovers. The quality is very, very good for the price.
