Hey all beauty geeks!!! Summer is in full force here. Though not as bad as India, it still gets hot. And I do not want to put a single item of makeup on my face. Except a natural looking blush. 🙂 You all aready know how much I love blushes. But my collection had mostly bright pinks and corals. I needed something which looked natural and also could survive the heat. Solution – Trip to Target!!! 🙂 I, finally, settled on buying Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural for my ‘requirement’. 🙂

My take on Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural:
Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush comes in two shades – Rose and Natural. Rose is a bright pink, reviewed by Anamika here. As I already owned lot of bright pinks, Natural was my choice. Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural is a very muted peachy pink color. The blush has a two-toned pattern. The rope-like pattern has ‘darker’ peach with subtle shimmers and the surrounding pattern is light matte peach. The light peach is so light that if you try to apply/swatch it, you hardly get any color. Thats why, I always swirl my brush on the entire blush to get the mix of both the colors.
The color is an absolute beauty. It is a universal shade that goes with all colors of lipsticks. I can apply it with a nude, pink, peach, coral and even a red color. This is my ‘top-of-the-mind recall’ blush in busy hours. 😉 I am so happy that I picked it up. I have been wearing this all the month and it is perfect for every occasion.
Texture: Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural has a very smooth and soft texture as claimed by the brand. There are subtle shimmers that make the finish a pearl one. It is not at all shimmery. The blush goes on smooth and blends nicely.
Pigmentation: The blush has more of a sheer pigmentation. May be because it is a natural shade, it is supposed to be light. I really need to swipe 3-4 times to get the color on my brush and then apply to my cheeks. This is definitely not a blush meant for a single swipe.
Staying Power: The staying power is impressive. It can survive almost the entire day in heat.
Packaging: Can this get any more cute??? 😉 The blush comes in a small square compact that has a brown suede-like cover with a tiny rope to pull open the compact. The blush also has a mirror and an accompanying brush on the other side. The brush is actually decent and can be used in a pinch.
What I love about Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural:
- Very natural shade of peachy pink.
- Gives a nice sheen to the cheeks.
- Will suit all skin types.
- Goes with every kind of makeup.
- Long lasting.
- Soft and smooth texture.
- Blends easily.
- Does not streak.
- Awesome packaging.
- Fragrance and paraben free.
What I do not like about Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural:
- Sheer pigmentation.
- The suede-like cover gets dirty quickly.
- Unavailability in India, but you will get it on ebay.
Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra Smoothing Blush in Natural has been my constant companion during spring and summer. I love the way it looks on me and complements every makeup look. Gives a nice glow to the face. You do need to work on the pigmentation a bit, but I think that is merely because of lighter shades of blush. Must buy for fair and medium skinned beauties. Recommended!!!
