What’s your favourite blusher? These days, my go-to blusher is non other than Innisfree Mineral Blusher. It beats other more expensive contenders that are sitting on my vanity, such as Lancome, Mac and Make Up Store. How did Innisfree Mineral Blusher end up being my everyday go-to blusher? Check it out below.
5 Reasons why Innisfree Mineral Blusher is my Everyday Blusher
1. Lovely Colour (#4)
I bought this lovely colour in #4. Although its official name is “Romantic Pink Rose“, I thought it was pinker and brighter in shade than the usual rose colour that I was used to. If I am allowed to rename this, I would call this a Candy Pink. Can I? =)
What’s great about this colour is that it brightens and gives a youthful and natural flush without making you look overly-girlish or garish. Such a natural colour goes well with everyday occasions and suits my fair skin tone (Mac NC20/ Innisfree 21 / Lancome P0-03) to a tee.
2. Easy Application
You know how some blushers are so strongly pigmented that you ended up having to add another layer of face powder just to even it out, right? There are also blushers on the other end of the spectrum that do not give enough colour no matter how many layers you’ve applied.
Fortunately, that’s not the case for Innisfree Mineral Blusher.
It was easy to use. The powder was smooth and applied evenly. You won’t get a case of the colour appearing too dark on any particular spot. Just two swipes were all I need to get the perfect coverage.
3. Matt Finish with a Subtle Glow
Ever since I started spotting enlarged pores (no thanks to a botched CO2 Fractional Laser), I avoided shimmery face powder like the plague. Such powders give off reflections and tend to magnify my pores.
If you like to see the magnifying effect of some of the shimmery powders I’ve used, you can check out the before-after photos in the following reviews: Lancome Teint Miracle Pressed Powder and Lancome Teint Miracle Loose Powder.
For some unknown reasons, I’d thought that Innisfree Mineral Powder offered a matt finish even though I’d been using it for more than a month. Honestly, they do look matt when applied on the face.
It was only after a swatch today (for the purpose of this review) that I noticed the subtle shimmer. So that’s what giving off a faint radiance to the cheek? Isn’t it great that it doesn’t magnify my enlarged pores, unlike other shimmery powders I’ve used?
4. Lasted for hours
With its sebum control ability, Innisfree Mineral Blusher remains visible even after a long day, albeit looking more washed-out with each passing hour.
5. It’s Cheap!
At S$12 a pop, you would agree with me that Innisfree Mineral Blusher is cheap!
1. Less Vivid Colour by Mid-day
I thought the colour appears less vivid and a little washed-out by mid-day. But the same goes with most of the mass market blushers I’ve used.
2. Not for Heavy Makeup Lover
Innisfree Mineral Blusher may not appeal to those who prefer an obvious colour on the cheek.
3. Suitable for Dry Skin?
While sebum control powder works great for those with oily or combination skin, I am not sure if it’ll be equally friendly to those who have dry skin or live in a dry-climate environment.
If you prefer a soft and natural colour to your cheeks and do not have dehydrated skin, Innisfree Mineral Blusher should work great on you. Its easy application and affordable price also meant this is great for beginners. Rating: 4/5
