I was not much into cream blushes ever, for some unknown reasons. I know they look the most natural and better than powder blushes but I guess I was so accustomed to applying blushes in a hurry that it never struck my mind. Well its better late than never and I started using cream blushes. The blush sticks are my favourite since they are easier to apply and blend. I have quite a few of them and the recent addition was LA Girl Velvet Blush Contour Stick Velour.
Contouring made easy with the Velvet Contour Stick Collection. This luxurious formula is paraben free with added jojoba seed oil, shea butter, cocoa seed butter and grape seed oil. The soft powdery finish blends beautifully to create the perfect contour and sculpted look!
The packaging is simple. The blush comes in a coloured retractable plastic tube with a clear cap. The tube is fat and easy to apply, fat tip means only one stroke is enough to cover cheek.
Shade – Velour is a pretty , it is dark and works well with my complexion. I don;t know how to describe the color though. I see a rosy pink shade. The shade is perfect for everyday and would give naturally flushed look. I love wearing it on my bare skin with a light layer of powder on top.
Texture & Formula – I find the texture very creamy and easy to blend. It feel creamy on the skin but sets in few seconds. If you have oily skin you might have to set it with a powder blush, since it can make your skin look greasy. The formula blends quickly and stays on for a long time without turning patchy.
In swatch the color looks coral, god knows why ! I clicked it indoors with flash. Otherwise the shade is quite dark and beautiful
Pigmentation – I find the blush stick very pigmented. Atleast the color I have is very pigmented and bright. I have to be a little careful but since it blends beautifully you can still make it work. I use makeup sponge to blend it and it works the best.
LA Girl Velvet Blush Contour Stick Velour is priced at Rs 750 available at Nykaa and NewU
I really love how the blush blends into the skin and looks natural. Use a brush or fingers the formula is buttery smooth. The finish is dewy and looks absolutely natural and gorgeous. The staying power of LA Girl Velvet Blush Contour Stick isn’t amazing but you can see the color for good 5 hours on your cheeks without getting patchy.
