B&D Powder Blush in No.3 – Review, FOTD


Hi All,

I have reviewed a couple of B&D products here on WiseShe like the Blush in No.4, T-zone mattifier, their Turquoise Cream liner, etc. Unfortunately, the store closed down in Pune a while back and I sorta lost all hope of purchasing another product from this brand. Then about 3weeks back, we had a Fraandship Day celebration on FB as per which we’d have to send a gift to another gal while keeping our identities anonymous. Unknown to me, Phil was my Fairy Godsista and through Ric, she sent me a couple of goodies including this gorgeous blush! I was sooo happy..The gesture, the thought that went to it…everything was just overwhelming! And I’m so happy she got me this blush…It’s unlike any other shade I own and really one of a kind.

My take on the B&D powder Blush in No.3:

  • Color: This shade is one of the most unique shades I’ve ever seen. Its a light rust orange shade with some shimmer. But the shimmer isn’t really too much…Just minute shimmer particles which make the skin look glowy as opposed to shimmery.

  • Pigmentation & Texture: This blush is quite pigmented although it does have a tad bit more fall out than usual. It can be layered as required and blends quite easily.

  • Staying Power: It stays on me for about 3hrs or so and then starts fading gradually. The orange tint does remain though and gives a fresh and healthy look to the face.

Due to the nature of this shade, I’d definitely say its a shoo-in for deeper skin tones since it’s easier to carry. For lighter skintones like mine, one has to be a little bit more cautious while applying this. If more than necessary is applied, I’d look like I got a bad sunburn. But yes, this shade is really lovely and gives me a very different and beautiful look that all the reds and pinks around. I don’t know of any dupes of this though. Do you?

What I like about the B&D powder Blush in No.3:

  • It’s a very unique shade and one of a kind.
  • Well priced
  • It’s a buildable shade and what makes it easier is the texture which is soft and easy to blend
  • I love the rust orange shade a lot. It’s not too dark either so you won’t end up looking burnt if applied properly
  • A must for blush lovers
  • The staying power is ok.


What I don’t like about the B&D powder Blush in No.3:

  • Not easily available. As far as I know, they only have outlets in Mumbai. It isn’t available online either.
