Revlon is one of my favorite drugstore brand. I have all their lip products,but this is my first blush from the brand. Since all the lip products I used until now have always been amazing or at least average, I wanted to drill this product to extreme before putting forth my thoughts about it. I have used Maybelline Cheeky Glow and was completely disappointing with it. Every time I used cheeky glow on my face, I welcomed acne. Thanks to my experience with Maybelline, I am very sceptical about the blushes I use. Keep reading if you want to know my thoughts on Revlon powder blush in 010 classy coral.

The blush comes in a compact plastic case which looks sleek. However, it is completely different story when you open the lid. It looks cheap quality and not so sturdy. The blush pan was not properly stuck to the base of the plastic. This made it easy for me to pull the pan out with my fingers.
The plastic case also has space for a blush brush and without any doubt this is the cheapest brush I have ever seen. The brush seems to be made of natural hair that is not properly glued to the feral. I could early pluck the hair of the brush. I know there is hardly anyone who uses the brush which comes with the product. But does that mean that a good band like Revlon will stick some hair on plastic and start selling it?
At the beginning I mentioned that I am too scared to use any blush and that is because of what was written on the back.
Warning: Discontinue use if signs of irritation or rash appears.
Such warning message can scare anyone with sensitive skin, so I did a mini research on the ingredients mentioned.
Talc: This is one of the most common ingredient in makeup. Its a good filler which easily sits on skin surface to create an even surface. Mainly used in powder products as it retains moisture.
Mica: Mineral that is use in makeup to provide light reflecting/ sheen finish.
Dimethicone – an emollient that provides glide.
Iron Oxides: Metal used to provide varying colors to makeup.
Polyethylene: Used commonly in makeup and cosmetic care products. Mainly used to hold the product together in a cake form.
Looking at the list of ingredients used it seems be a mineral based product. Since complete list of ingredients are not mentioned on the packaging it would be difficult to conclude that.
The blush is smooth and does not come out chalky. The coverage is light, so you will have to dig your brush in the product to get the color show up on to the cheeks. It is best for those who would not prefer pigmented product and would want to build up color. I prefer to use it on the regular basis specially because I want beautiful glow without being over dramatic. I have been using this blush every single working day and it did not break me out. However, I would suggest testing it out before you start using it regularly.
