I know it's been awhile since I've posted but life has just been CRAZY. I got a new job, and I've been training for two weeks, and I just started and I'm still so confused on what I'm doing and quite frankly, overwhelmed. Adding that to school work and life stresses, I need a few more hours in a day, days in a week, weeks in a month, and months in a year.
ANYWAY, let's discuss this OFRA brand blush in Charm. I bought it online from Ulta, and had tried other things from them in my VegaCuts box I'm pretty sure. I did some research, and they're a vegan and cruelty free company, but I believe their products are only available on the Ulta website, not in store. You can also order from the OFRA website too, of course.
I use Illuminare liquid mineral blush usually, but I like a little powder blush on top because of the mattifying effect. I had run out of my Too Faced one and wanted something that wasn't super expensive. Plus, choosing the right shade of blush is HARD. This shade is a natural peach matte (I don't know if I would go peach. It's kind of a light light mauve, but that's just me). It was only $12, compared to $28 for my Too Faced that's a great deal. It's smaller than I anticipated, but I don't need a lot, just a dusting over my usual mineral blush.
I took two photos, ones with this blush alone and one layered with my regular mineral blush.
Here's blush alone:
Depending on how you look at it, this blush isn't highly pigmented, at least on my skin. So, you can use just a little to add a little flush to your face, and if you're fair skinned, it might add more than a little flush. For me, I couldn't wear this alone. It's not enough of a pop on my skin. It does look natural though, and that I really like.
Here's mineral blush with this layered on top:
This is my full face, but you can see more color to my cheeks than before.
Depending on your preference and skin tone, you may need to adjust your application technique or layer. There are other shades too, and for $12, I'm thrilled. That's a steal. I want to check out some of their other products too. I'm always looking for new products to try. I'm thinking about signing up for 4 boxes of the VeganCuts Quarterly Makeup Box, and prepaying for it, as a little treat to myself. Not that I need it, I did just buy $85 worth of KVD makeup lol. I wish retail therapy was covered by my insurance!
Anyway, you can't beat this price, and there is other colors to try. Check it out!
