Shelf Life: Use within 12 months once opened.

Packaging & Appearance: The packaging is simple and basic. It comes in a transparent packaging with it’s name on the top and at the back you have other details mentioned. The packaging isn’t fancy, just a simple pan kind of packaging.

Shade: The shade that I have is Peach Me Up (10). It is a peachy and coral kind of a colour which is perfect for daytime.
Staying Power: It’s staying power is 3-4 hours. It does fade away a bit early then other blushes. But I am okay with the staying power as the colour itself is so pretty.
Pigmentation: It is decently pigmented. It’s not too pigmented and not too sheer. I like blushes to be this way because if it is too pigmented you end up looking like a clown sometimes.
Finish: The finish of the Essence Matt Touch Blush is matte. It’s doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter whatsoever.
Smell: No smell whatsoever.
Swatch: In the image below.
My Experience: I was looking for a peachy blush for a very long time as I was getting bored of my usual pink blushes. I saw this blush from Essence and instantly picked it up as the colour was exactly as I wanted, also not to forget, it was cheap as well.
I tried it while I was doing a no-makeup makeup look and I really loved this blush. I wouldn’t say it is the best blush I have ever used but it is pretty good according to the price. It went on smoothly and gave a matte finish to my cheeks.
It doesn’t add any pink colour to the cheeks which I like because many blushes seem to be peach in colour at first but when you apply them they look pinkish. Other than that, the packaging is pretty normal and staying power is decent as well.

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 3.5/5
Will I Repurchase?
No, because instead of purchasing this I would like to try the silky variant in this one. Although I love this one but I would rather go for a different product as I love trying various products.
Do I Recommend?
Yes, I do recommend this blush as overall it’s a very nice blush. I really like its quality according to the price and also it’s texture is super smooth. So in all terms, I really recommend this blush to everyone.
Overall Summary: If you’re looking for a matte blush then definitely go for this one. It is not a chalky blush like some other matte blushes and it is decently pigmented. It has a nice colour pay off on your cheeks and will give you a very natural flush of colour. So I would suggest you to buy Essence Matt Touch Blush if this is what you’re looking for. Plus it is affordable as well!
