One of my personal favourites products out of the November LF Beauty Box is this Model Co Cheek Powder. I really enjoy it when they include makeup in beauty boxes like the one I’m subscribed to and when I found out this one came with a blush I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out more about this product, make sure you continue reading!
The Model Co Cheek Powder usually comes in a bigger and different packaging, but the overall idea is pretty much the same. This blush comes in a completely black plastic packaging with a little mirror on the inside. It’s very basic but also very cute. If I have to be completely honest with you guys I have to say it’s not my very favourite packaging, I like them a little more luxurious, but I don’t hate this at all.
The blusher I got is in a shade called Peach Bellini. On the Model Co site it says they have two more colours: a more pinky tone called Cosmopolitan and a more brown shade called Amaretto Sunset. All three are absolutely stunning, but this one is probably my favourite.
Peach Bellini is a gorgeous peachy shade (surprise). It comes across quite pink on the pictures and it does have a pink undertone, but in real life it does have a little more peach to it. It’s quite an intense looking blush and just from the looks of it I expect it to be quite a pigmented one at that.
Lately I have been a big fan of blushes with a sheen to it rather than a shimmer and this one fits that picture quite well. Even though it does look quite shimmery in the pan, it’s more of a sheen on the cheeks. It’s not overwhelming at all, but it does make it look a little more natural than it would’ve looked when it was either a very matte or a very shimmery blush.
Quality wise this blush isn’t disappointing at all. I don’t know a lot about this brand so I have no idea whether or not this brand is well rated and what I could’ve expected from it, but from the image I got of the brand I expected it to be quite mediocre. Model Co seems like a great mid-range brand and I expected the quality to fit into that picture to.
In the end I have to say it’s not completely what I thought. It doesn’t feel like the most luxurious blush that has ever touched my skin, but it’s not mediocre either. The texture of the blush is really nice, it feels very soft and silky and it applies very evenly.
It’s also a very pigmented blush, maybe a tad bit too pigmented, but when you work with a light hand this will definitely work. Because it’s such a pigmented blush I do recommend using this only if you know how to work with a light hand because it is so easy to go overboard with it and that’s just not a good look, but if you got that light hand under control, this could look gorgeous on you!
The lasting time isn’t disappointing either. Because it’s quite an intense blush it just lasts quite long, longer than I initially expected. It stays in place for upto 6 hours and that’s quite impressive for a blush!
Overall I think this blush is quite impressive. I did expect it to be mediocre, but to be completely honest, it’s better than that. It deserves a little more credit. Even though this blush didn’t blow my mind, it didn’t let me down either. I really like the shade, it’s a very pigmented and intense blush and it stays in place for quite a long time! So if you’re looking for a great, well priced blush, this might be what you’re looking for!
