Product Review: Rimmel London Blushes - Apricot, Berry, & Sienna

Today, I am going to review Rimmel blushes. I only have 3 shades though - Apricot, Berry, & Sienna. I first had Apricot and found it really nice, better than Maybelline blushes in my opinion, so Apricot was followed by Sienna and the latest one is Berry. I'll let you know why I bought one after the other.

But first, let me show you some photos though I was not able to capture the true colour of the blushes. I'm telling you, these photos do not give justice to the blushes as they are prettier in real life. I'll just let the swatches speak for themselves. :P




Individual Description (in my eyes):
1. Apricot - A peachy-orange blush with shimmer that gives you a very healthy glow when applied right.
2. Berry - Not in any way a berry shade for me. When I see berry, I think of NARS Crazed and other shades in that colour family. This is somewhat a rosy mauve with a hint of pink in it.
3. Sienna - A pale rose-pink shade.

What I like:
- The price. You get value for money as this has good quality, IMO.
- Colour is buildable. It goes on sheer but can be layered for more dramatic cheeks.
- Unscented. My nose loves it. :P
- Has very fine shimmers that goes unnoticeable on your skin after some time.
- Lasting power is pretty decent. 2-3 hours on my oily skin, not so bad at all.
- Pigmentation is just right. Not as pigmented as NARS blushes but not as sheer as other drugstore blushes.
- Contains 5g of product and for PHP65, that's awesome.

What I don't like:
- The fact that it is not locally available and have to search online to find one.
- The compact is quite hard to work with. I ended up scratching a small portion of Apricot with my nail when I first opened it. I now have to be extra careful in opening it and it is such a pain.

Overall rating: 3.5/5
Will I buy again? Yes, but only if there is a shade I like. I am eye-ing Santa Rose. :P
