Review: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush in Witty Peach

The ombre lip trend may be dying down, but my heart still skips a beat whenever I see a gradient product (that, and Chris Evans’ biceps flexing in Capt’n America -drools- hurls my panties at him). Insane fangirling moment aside, this product is one that can also emulate that natural flush that comes to my cheeks in that heated moment hurhurhur.

I say…

The Packaging: A compact that’s considerably larger than other blushers (will update with the measurements soon), but I guess this means that there’s more blush product. It comes with an inbuilt mirror and mini brush, which is sufficiently soft enough to use when you’re on the go / overseas, but I personally prefer to use the usual large blush brush so that I can pick up

The Scent: None.

The Texture: Very finely-milled powder grains that are picked up easily with a large powder brush (and there’s barely any fall out). It goes on smoothly onto the skin, although it has a slight tendency to sink into enlarged pores (since it’s so small), so try not to be heavy-handed in application. The colour payoff is medium – you’ll probably need 1-2 coats to get a natural flush, but on the bright side, it means that you won’t end up with cheeks that resemble that puppet from Saw if you overdo the application/are a makeup noob.

The Verdict:Β  Now I had initially thought I could use the lighter yellow shade as a highlighter of sorts, but judging by the colour (and plus it’s matte with a lack of shimmer), it wouldn’t be the most suitable, especially for us yellow-skinned Asians. That aside, it is a very pretty blush colour that’s buildable and very fine in texture. A good investment for those who aren’t into frenetic and constant beauty shopping (yes I admit that’s me), and prefer to have one blush for the entire year. Or even if you’re a beauty junkie, this would be a good-quality item to have in your stash. Heh.
