Purely Pro Blush Universal
February has been a great month for me and I am just blushing. LOL. Naah!!! Not because it is the month of the Valentine but because of the beautiful blush I received in my Vellvette box.I love it so much that I just can’t get enough of it.
Since a long time I was contemplating to invest in a soft pink blush as I have one from ELF which is more of a pink with blue undertones and I wanted something on the subtle side. I always check out options at makeup counters but every time I postpon buying a blush because I am just not sure about the color.
Then came in my Vellvette box carrying a blush which I am going to review today for you guys. Hang on to know what is so good about this one.
I am going to review the blush called ‘Universal’ by Purely Pro Cosmetics. I got the sample size of 3.7gm(0.13Oz) from Vellvette team while the full sized product comes in a 0.18 Ounce pack.
Product: Purely Pro Blush Universal
Price: INR1650 for 0.18Ounce
Ingredients: Mica,Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate,Zinc Stearate,Phenoxyethanol,Tocopherol,Lauroyl Lysine,Caprylyl Glycol,IsopentyIdiol,May contain: Tintanium Dioxide and a few Iron Oxides.
Directions to Use: To apply, swirl your brush across the surface of the blush and then tap lightly to dust off the excess pigment. Lightly apply the blush from mid-cheek to temple, tracing the cheekbone for a contoured look. Else smile and apply it to the apples of your cheeks for a more youthful look. If you are not a blush user and don’t have a brush, don’t worry – your fingers, if used gently, can create an equally magical effect. Just make sure- you blend, blend, blend till you get the right amount of pigment.
Description: The blush comes in a special light texture which glides on smoothly and evenly. The sheer, natural ingredients formula light-weighted and highly pigmented providing the perfect mix to enhance the cheekbones and create contours.
Universal is a poppy shade of pink that lies like a true blush on your cheeks.
About Purely Pro Blush Universal:
The product comes in a silver colored hard plastic packaging with a screw on lid and the lid has a transparent part over the top for the product to be visible. I wish the lid was a flip type rather than a screw on type.
My experience with Purely Pro Blush Universal:
Like the description says, this shade Universal is a poppy pink but it is very subtle and much on the softer side. I also feel it has a peachy touch to it rather than a pink. The pigmentation is fairly good enough and can be altered depending on the amount of color you want on your cheeks.
The texture is smooth and silky and is easily blendable with a brush but does need a bit of practice if you want to do it with your fingers. I really love how subtle it is for a pink blush and does provide a very natural flush of color to your cheeks if you don’t want to look very made up.
What I like about Purely Pro Blush Universal:
- The color is a big hit for me as I like subtle tones of blush
- Light and smooth texture
- Easily blendable
- Gives a natural look
- Would suit most of the Indian skin tones.
What I don’t like about Purely Pro Blush Universal:
- Only that it could have come with a flip on cap
- The price might be a con for some.
Rating: 4/5 (-1 for the price and lid type)
Would I recommend it to a friend: Yes.
Would I repurchase: I would like to try other shades as well from the range.
