My Take On Ben NYE Powder Cheek Rouge Blush DR -9:-

I was never aware of the amazing Ben nye powder rouge and cream rouge blushers range earlier. I had read many good reviews regarding Ben nye luxury visage Banana powder, but before ordering it I checked the range of Ben nye and saw their online catalogue. Seriously guys I went crazy seeing their range especially the foundation, eye shadow and blusher range. I liked those so much that even without reading the reviews I ordered Ben nye cream blush coral, powder blush Dark Tech and Ben nye banana setting powder from the very lovely Erica singh, owner of Facebook online store Beautyholic. I must tell you guys I totally loved their products and intend to purchase more from this brand in coming days.

  • Packaging: Ben nye powder rouge blushers come in rubberized coated plastic pan like packaging with the shade name and ingredient list mentioned at the bottom on the pan. I really loved the packaging especially the rubberized coating because it will impart added safety to the blush and thus will prevent it from breakage while traveling.

  • Shade: ‘Dark Tech’ is a lovely unique tomato reddish orange blush. I don’t think I have ever seen such a unique shade anywhere in any brand, not easily dupable. It will suit Indian skin tones especially the dusky beauties. Brides prefer wearing pink blushers but I think I am going to sport such lovely tomato orange blusher shade in my marriage.  😀

  • Texture & Finish: It has satin matte finish with velvety soft silk like texture. I really loved the texture as it is soft but firm and won’t lead to product wastage while picking up the shade with brush. This blusher blends effortlessly over a make up base and you need a light hand while using it. However on very dry flaky skin, this may get bit streaky.

  • Pigmentation & Staying Power: This shade is intensely rather I will say is insanely pigmented. I would not suggest this blusher to the beginners, because it is very easy to go overboard with this shade. You really need to be very careful while applying it. When I applied this for the first time, I want to admit that my cheeks looked tomato red kind, I liked it :-p but definitely could not wear it like this to my workplace. So I had to be very careful and learn techniques to use it.

It has incredibly high staying power which I have never seen with any blusher till date. I used it during daytime and it stayed on me for the whole day till evening over a foundation. I did not remove the swatches that you can see on my hand and these swatches stayed as such for more than 24 hours. I was soo surprised seeing them on my hand as it is.

  1. Will this look like peach when blended out on fair skin!!!! hmmm… imagining….imagining….!!!! Cannot really figure out from my imagination….the first swatch (not blended one) looks so neat though it is a powder blush.

    • Hi dear, it will be a peachy tomato orange color on fair skin, very flattering shade this is, i used it on one of my friends before her marriage just for trial like how it would look on fair skin, she liked it sooo much ki she all the time asks me where can i buy blushers n all :p she was not aware of blushers earlier

  2. Thanx for the mention..Taps! BN products r indeed amazing.. i have to go soon n buy the banana powder n m surely picking up this blush.. loooks ah-mazinggg n prettty unique :inlove: :lipstick: :hug-makeup:

    • You are always welocome dear, its becoz of u I could use this brand, and I am impressed with it quality, these are damn gorgeous, i liked banana powder too

  3. Pretty colour. I was wondering what the actress in ‘Jayantabhai ki lovestory’ was wearing. From the swatch it looks very similer to her peach cheeks.

  4. It’s actually fairly inexpensive(8-10 USD). Because Ben Nye is a mainly a theatrical/ show business makeup company, you will often find their products on theatre makeup retailers and websites such as or stagemakeuponline.

    I recommend vintage rose for almost any skin type. 🙂
