Oriflame Studio Artist Cream Blushes in Soft Peach and Pink Glow Review & Swatch

Hello Ladies,

Today, I am going to review one product that has become a staple in my everyday makeup. It is the cream blushes from Oriflame.


I know I am the last one on earth to review these famed blushes. But as we say, better be late than never.

Packing:

It comes in a transparent plastic tube with a black cap. I love the packing because; it is light, travel friendly and lets us see how much product is left. The tube comes with an outer glossy black studio artist carton box.


Price: INR. 549/- for 20 ml.

Shades Available: Soft Peach, Pink Glow and Sheer Berry.

Shade description:

Pink Glow: Looks bright and borderline neonish in the tube. But on cheeks it transforms into a gorgeous warm pink flush.

Soft Peach: Muted peach shade. Imparts a natural flush to the cheeks.

Texture: It is not creamy as the name says. It is between runny and creamy. It is not too runny like a stain and it is not thick like a cream.

How to apply:

I use my fingers to apply this product. I dab few tiny dots on the apples of my cheek and will blend it upwards towards my cheek bone.

Overall Experience

I have dry and blemished skin and like most of the dry skinned beauties, I adore dewy look. When I saw these blushes, I was elated as cream blushes are always dry skin friendly and I was in for a surprise.

Unlike cream blushes, these settle into a matte finish. More than matte I would say that it looks as if I have applied a stain on.

As I have dry skin, I moisturized my skin thoroughly to get the perfect blendability. But when I use it properly, I get the perfect results.

My skin looked gorgeously flushed when I used the soft peach and pink glow just lights up my face. I use soft peach on a regular basis now as I love the effect it imparts.

It says for about 4-5 hours on my skin when I use it without a proper base and I am sure it will stay forever when we apply it on well primed face.

As I have mentioned, the pigmentation is good and all we need is a very less quantity to get the color on.  

As a base for powder blushes, fantastic would be an understatement. They make the powder blushes, even the MUA ones last forever.

This is how I use these blushes on daily basis. It may sound little absurd so reader’s discretion advised. :D

THE METHOD:
After adequately moisturizing, I apply the cream blush (I layer it to get more intense color). As my face is freshly moisturized, it gets easily blended without me having to make an effort. Once that is done, I apply my tinted sunscreen, compact and top it off with a powder blush (mostly MUA cupcake if I had used soft peach one). I thoroughly enjoy this process and the end result is very good considering how dry my skin is. Cupcake stays put forever and even if cup cake fades, I still have some color on my cheeks. :D

Swatches:





Oriflame Studio Artist Cream Blushes in Soft Peach and Pink Glow.

What I like:
  • Functional and hygienic Packing.
  • Lovely shades. Pink Glow brightens up my face and soft peach adds a pretty natural flush.
  • They are decently pigmented.
  • Long Staying.
  • Did not break out or irritate my sensitive skin.
  • Oily skinned ladies will completely adore the finish and formula.
  • Requires less quantity so, the 20 ml will last long.
  • Can be used as a base for powder blushes.
  • Light Texture. Does not feel as if u have product on.
  • Blends well.
  • Complete Ingredient list mentioned. 

What I Hate:
  • Has a stain like finish. My dry skin needs heavy duty moisturizing.
  • Soft Peach may not turn up on dusky girls.
  • Only three shades available. I wish they had an orange one.
  • Must be procured through an oriflame rep or few selective online stores.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
It feels nice to have a good quality cream-liquid blush in my kitty. Love the way it brings out the natural flush on my cheeks. Oily skinned ladies must check out these out. Am sure you will love it. But, for the dry skinned, this product is not a must buy but definitely worth a try. After all, we need to moisturize even before blowing our noses right?
