I was pretty jazzed up to see this as one of the $10 items listed on 100% Pure's website for Cyber Monday. It was such a great price and a great opportunity to try out their makeup. Originally, this blush costs $35! So, to get it for $25 less than that?! Only a crazy person would say no!
Let's start with the ingredients!
I'm truly amazed at how natural their ingredients are. Not just for this but for all of their products. I mean, I guess with a name like 100% Pure you've got a lot to live up to in that area, but seriously, these ingredients are so clean! I absolutely love seeing ingredients like cherry, strawberry, raspberry, and cranberry extract instead of fake FD&C junk. I was also happy to see no perfumes! This blush doesn't have any scent at all. I would think that even those with the more sensitive skin could use this and not have any reactions. I have pretty sensitive skin and I haven't had any issues from it!
Next up, the packaging.
The blush comes in a tin which comes in the cardboard packaging in the first and second photo I posted. The tin is a pretty yet subtle shade of pink. I love the intricate and feminine design on the tin. I think it really adds flair to it. Like, this is the kind of makeup you want to display on your vanity, not hide it away in some makeup bag. I also like that it's a tin, and not just another plastic container. It's actually surprisingly lightweight too. This is easily my favorite makeup container that I own!
Next up, the color.
I was having the hardest time trying to get a photo that accurately displays the color of this blush. The photo above on your left definitely doesn't, but the one on your right with my blush brush is pretty close. It's darker than what it looks on 100% Pure's website, which I'm thankful for. I was very hesitant when I ordered this because the color looked so light, and I was doubtful that it would even show up on my face. But I figured for $10, why not try it? If I didn't like it I would only be out $10. The color is a true pink. But it's surprisingly natural looking on your skin.
I took a photo with natural and artificial light so you could see the blush both ways.
As you can see, as expected, the blush is definitely a little light for my skin. But, the plus side is that this blush is buildable without looking cakey or fake. It's really pigmented, and it goes on so silky smooth on your skin. The application is a dream! I have been using it for over a week now, and I just apply a few layers and it provides a natural looking blush. It's definitely more natural looking than my Too Faced blush. I prefer a more bold blush myself, but I really do like this. They offer darker shades and if one of them ever go on sale, I'll definitely be trying them.They have so many shades, I think there's one to compliment every skin tone.
I know that $35 is a lot for blush, trust me. I'm poor, so I get it. But you really do get what you pay for. High quality no fuss real natural ingredients. And, this blush is .32oz/ 9 g. so it is decently sized. Lastly, shipping is free and there's a 100% money back guarantee. I recommend this, and every other product I've tried from 100% Pure. If you're looking for truly clean cosmetics, look no further than them!
