I am back again, with another gorgeous product review from NOTE Cosmetics. Honestly speaking, I am so smitten by this brand that I want to try every single thing they have made available in India. Today’s review is about the NOTE Luminous Silk Compact Blusher in shade 05 DESERT ROSE.
Price : Rs 650, available at Amazon.in
The NOTE Luminous Silk Compact Blusher comes in a compact with a mirror and a brush. Its simple and convenient packaging makes it quite easy to travel around with.
The shade 05 DESERT ROSE is a gorgeous warm terracotta shade that is just so perfect for a wide variety of looks from dark smoky eyes, to lovely neutral makeup looks. This shade just adds the perfect dose of color that you may need to look presentable on a given day when you aren’t probably feeling your best. I am personally more into warm orange toned blushes and hence was drawn to this color at the first look.
The texture, OMG!! the TEXTURE of this blush is just so amazing. The product is infused with the goodness of Argan Oil and you can feel a certain creaminess in the powder that is densely packed into the compact and yet can be easily picked on the brush. It is a highly pigmented powder and so it makes much sense to shake off the excess from the brush before application to avoid any patchiness.
The powder, though slightly creamy to touch, is quite smooth and highly blendable. Whether you are a novice with makeup, or an expert, you just can’t go wrong with this blush. The only trick is to start with the tiniest amount and build up the intensity along the way.
The NOTE Luminous Silk Compact Blusher in shade 05 DESERT ROSE stays for really long hours, a minimum of 7-8 to say the least.
Overall, I am quite impressed by the quality and performance of the NOTE Luminous Silk Compact Blusher in shade 05 DESERT ROSE. It is my perfect accompaniment on dull skin days to add that hint of warmth for a perfect sunkissed look. The creamy blendable texture is great to work with, for both beginners and pro artists. My only complain is the lack of variety in the shade range. The 5-6 shades I saw at a store were mostly for pale skinned beauties and all lay in the neutral shade category. I would actually love to see a deep plum or a soft pink over there as well. Other than that, I have absolutely no complaints as far as the performance of this particular product is concerned.
If you can lay your hands on it, do get the NOTE Luminous Silk Compact Blusher. These are also available at nykaa.com and archiesonline.com.
