I never had a blush palette before and when I saw Sivanna Colors blush palette, I could not help myself but to buy it. Visually the colors look compatible to Indian skin tone. Its my love at first sight kind of purchase as I did not try these shades on my skin before purchasing. As you all know I am a pink lover so choosing this shade out of the available 4 shades was my first choice. Lets get on to the Sivanna Colors Ultra Blush Palette review!
Product Name: Sivanna Colors Ultra Blush Palette in the shade 03.
Price and Quantity: It retails for Rs 579 for 16g.
Ingredients: In the image below:
Shelf Life: 3 years from the date of manufacture.
Availability: Easily available online. Buy here. (PS: the rate keeps on fluctuating!)
Packaging and Appearance: The palette comes in a see through rectangular cardboard packing with transparent sheet on one side so that we can see the shades nicely. The back side contains ingredient list and other information in different language.
As I opened the cardboard box from the side, there is transparent see through plastic rectangular blush palette. The brand name is mentioned on the palette (front and back). It closes nicely and tightly whenever I open it. There is no spillage or breakage of blush if I turn palette upside down in my purse.
The product contains warm to cool tone shades. The product has 4 different blush shades, 1 highlighter, and 1 contour/bronzer.
Smell: The product has no smell.
How to Use: I apply primer, foundation, and powder to my face to create a base for blusher. I place the brush on the blush palette, tap on my hand, and then apply to my skin. I apply the blush on apple of my cheeks, center of my nose, a little on middle forehead, and chin to create a symmetrical look.
Then I take highlighter on brush and apply to corner of my eyebrow and a few dots on cheek tip to create highlighted effect. I am not much of a contour or bronzer using person so I skip it.
Swatch: In the image below!
My Experience: I really love the multipurpose all-in-one palette containing 6 shades of blush, 1 highlighter, and 1 contour/bronzer. I don’t have to carry highlighter and bronzer separately. I selected the Shade 3 which suits my fair Indian skin tone.
The product is nicely pigmented and blends very flawlessly when applied with the help of brush which I had to buy separately. The shades give very mild sheen glow to the face and contain gold flakes which shine in light. My face does not appear cakey or over done.
The product last more than 7 hours even in sweaty weather and does not bleed. The only thing I don’t like about this product is that it does not contain brush for application and I had to buy and carry separately.
Shade: The palette has shades ranging from warm to cool tone listed below.
- Bubble gum fuschia pink
- Matte and less bright pink
- Bright coral shade
- White/silver smooth highlighter with gold flakes
- Dark shimmery peachy pink shade with gold flakes
- Nude peachy pink shimmery combo shade
- Cool bright pink shade. Brighter than shade 1
- Light brown matte contour shade but its kind of invisible to dark skin. It can be used as a bronzer.
Texture: The product has smooth, soft and powdery texture. I had to dab the extra blush from the brush during application. The shades 1, 2 , 3, 7, and 8 has smooth matte finish. The shade 4, 5, and 6 has powdery finish.
The blush needs to be blended quickly as it absorbs very fast on the skin.
Pigmentation: All the shades are highly pigmented. They blends very nicely and easily on skin with the help of brush. Direct application leaves your cheek cakey so first I dab the brush and then quickly spread to my cheeks.
Long Lasting: The product has long lasting effect and stays for more than 7 hours even in summers. The 5 and 6 shade fades after 5 hours but rest stays long.
