Maybelline Cheeky Glow In Fresh Coral (4)Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush In Fresh Coral: Swatches & Review

Guest Review By Bipasha (Medium Skintone, Combination)

Hola girlies!! I am gonna review Maybelline’s cheeky glow blush in the shade ‘Fresh Coral’. While  ”Creamy cinnamon ” has been reviewed here previously, this one is all about a peppy, fresh color that instantly adds brightness. When Maybelline launched these cheeky glow blushes here in India at the affordable price tag of rs 250, I was really excited and started searching for them so when I found these at a Maybelline counter,I immediately bought 2 from this range !  A blush from Maybelline that too at just rs 250 is a great bargain considering how there are almost no budget blushes available in India at the time.

Packaging: First thing that I liked about it is the packaging. It is just so adorable- small,compact and handy and yet contains 7g of product! Really like the white plastic packaging, so barbie-like :D

Shade: The shade ‘Fresh Coral’ is a very pretty pink with coral hints. Its a bit like a bubblegum pink and though it looks like one of those blushes that only suit super pale girls but trust me,once applied and blended, it turns into one of those beautiful universally flattering pinkish corals that suit almost everyone. Initially it does look dark on my medium skintone but after blending,it does not look OTT at all. Just a very natural and beautiful flush of pink!

Pigmentation,Staying power : This Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush is extremely pigmented! Just one swipe with a brush cross the pan is enough for both cheeks!  This particular color , is actually much more pigmented than Creamy Cinnamon.

Staying power is average,around 4 hours maximum after which it fades. I Don’t think that’s a huge problem considering the price and otherwise great quality of the product.

One thing is that  if you like to see ingredients of a product before buying, you cannot do that because it has a sticker applied to the back that hides the ingredients list,I have pulled the sticker here and shown the ingredients list but I don’t think you can do that while buying lol.

1)Beautiful pink-coral shade that will suit a wide array of skintones
2)Gives a beautiful glow to cheeks if blended properly(like the name says ‘Cheeky glow’
4)I really liked the cute packaging!
5)Smooth texture,not powdery,hence minimal fallout

1)Staying power could have been improved a bit.
3)Ingredients list cannot be seen unless you pull the sticker, but hey I will suggest you to check a tester’s ingedients first if there is one at the counter or you can see my review :p

Rating: A-

Price: 250 Rs

Recommendation: The  Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush in Fresh Coral, is an absolutely beautiful fresh bubblegum pink that will instantly brighten your face. Though it may look like its meant for paler skintones, i urge medium toned girls to try it out- this one is gorgeous and at such a super affordable price!

Loveeeeed the shade!

I bought this shade and the colour is really pretty. The only con for me is that it doesn’t spread as evenly as some other blushes. Takes a bit of effort to make it look blended. But for the price it’s a really good buy.

Super pretty shade!

Maybelline has hit the jacket pocket with the cheeky glow series. Nice shade.
