Catrice Illuminating Blush 040 La Vie En Rose Review

By Friday, August 05, 2016 , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing Catrice Illuminating Blush 040 La Vie En Rose for you guys. Let's see how this one fared out.

Product Description: The Illuminating Blush combines two different colour-intensities with a subtle shimmer and a light pearl. This accentuates the cheekbones as well as giving your complexion definition and a soft glow.

Price: 3.99 €

Packaging: It comes in a transparent compact case which looks very similar to the Essence Mosaic Blush. It is very simple and basic but not flimsy. It feels quite sturdy and flip top shuts nice and tight.

Performance:  Catrice Illuminating Blush 040 La Vie En Rose is a muted peach shade with a hint of pink to it. This blush has such a beautiful chequered zigzag pattern which looks so attractive and pretty. I bought this one and the Essence Mosaic Blush mainly because of the way they look. 040 La Vie En Rose has two shades in it, a lighter peach shade in the middle and a slightly darker dusty rose pink shade on the sides. Both swirled together gives you a very light peachy pink shade. Being an illuminating blush, it has shimmer particles in it but is not glittery and you don’t end up looking like a glitter ball. It is very smooth in texture and has a very satiny feel. It is decently pigmented and very bendable. Because it is a very light shade, it doesn’t show up too much on my skin tone. I like it for daily wear as it is not too intense and gives just a hint of colour with a dash of glow on the cheeks. At times I layer it on top of other matte blushes and it looks very nice as it adds a bit of sheen. Lasting power is decent as well and it lasts for 4-5 hours on me before it starts to fade away on me and even when the colour fades a hint of shimmery glow remains.

The Good:

  • Available in three shades.
  • Very pretty to look at.
  • Very affordable
  • Easy to blend.
  • Gives a very subtle glow
  • Nice staying power.
  • Good Quality
The Bad:

  • Availability is an issue.
If you are someone who likes subtle blushes then this is for you. Really nice shade and great for daily wear. Catrice product are so affordable and of good quality. You can’t go wrong with them. If you can do try them out.

Hope you liked this post!!
