For me, blush is a make up product that ties and eye and lip look together. I never opt for statement blushes, purely because I don't think they suit me, and almost every blush in my collection is a subtle and colour that brightens the face and adds a small amount of colour. I see the Essence Silky Touch Blushes whenever I check out Essence displays at Priceline and Target but, for some reason, I always overlook them, opting to add another lipstick, eyeshadow or nail polish to my collection instead. It's odd though because I've actually wanted to try them for quite some time. Go figure, Sophie.
Anyway, long story short, recently the Essence Silky Touch Blush in #10 Adorable* was sent to me and I've used it almost every day since.
The Essence Silky Touch Blush in #10 Adorable* is a cool toned pale petal pink colour that I think is absolutely beautiful. As you'll be able to see in the swatch below, it's a very sheer colour that is perfect for my super pale complexion. I find pale pink shades give me a little bit of colour and a natural flush, whilst still managing to brighten up the face, and this blush is no exception. I tried to no avail to get a photo that showed this blush on my face in all its glory but I just couldn't get a shot I was happy with. Sorry!
The Essence Silky Touch Blush in #10 Adorable* is, as the name suggests, very silky to the touch. It has a very creamy texture that I find means that it blends seamlessly into the skin. I haven't any shades in the Essence Silky Touch Blush line so I can't speak for them all, but Adorable* is such an easy colour to just throw on because it's so easy to wear.
The Essence Silky Touch blushes are available in six shades and they retail for $4.50 each. Bargain! Essence products are available Target and Priceline stores Australia wide.
What do you think of the Essence Silky Touch Blush in #10 Adorable*? Have you tried them? What's your favourite affordable blush?
