First Look: Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Blush in Fresh Berry
Hey everyone, I'm back. I have been feeling exhausted lately. Just been doing a lot, most recently worked on a wedding this Sunday. I'll try to post some photos of my work in my portfolio (http://charlenetanmakeup.tumblr.com)
I personally haven't been wearing too much makeup. I find that I don't have enough time to even do my makeup. Haha! But here's one of the products that I have been grabbing because of the quality!
I got the Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Blush in Fresh Berry from the I Love Beauty Series of Studio SnR that I attended a couple of months back. I actually own 2 Clear Smooth blushes already and actually fell in love with them. So when I saw this in my loot, I was super excited.
Compared to the other blushes that I have, Fresh Berry looks a little bit scary in the pan. It looks like a red violet highly pigmented color. For newbies, this color may look very intimidating. I admit it looks pretty bold.
The color is matte which is perfect anytime. I have always loved matte blushes. It can go with just about anything and I can use it the whole year round! Fresh Berry is indeed very pigmented so a little goes a long way and it's important to tap the brush before sweeping it on the face.
Here are some swatches:
I also enjoy wearing this when I'm fresh faced, not much makeup, no eyeshadows. It's a perfect pop of color! I honestly love this blush! I feel like it gives my face a healthy glow too. :) I actually used this in one of my tutorials with very neutral eye makeup. Well, I'll post photos soon. :)
I wonder if you own any scary looking blushes too? :p Care to share?
