Faces Glam On Cream Blush in Peach Glow: Review and Swatches

Spring is almost knocking the door and so is the flash of all vibrant hues in our wardrobe and stash. With tangerines and corals being the eternal love I ordered Faces Glam On Cream Blush in Peach Glow from an online shopping site.
Read on to know the experience:

Product Description:
Faces Glam On Cream Blush gives blushing beauty at your fingertips with this weightless, creamy formula. It lends natural, radiant, long lasting color to the cheeks due to a specially formulated, creamy formulation. Simply dab the Cream Blush onto skin with fingertips to emulate the look of natural, youthful skin.

Price Vs. Quantity: INR 399/- / 3.5gm

Ingredients:

Shades Available:
It comes in the following four shades:
  • Peach Glow
  • Pinked Mauve
  • Hint Of Pink
  • Rose Quartz
 Peach Glow is a deep warm orange shade. Its more rusty than peachy! Its a beautiful shade for sure and would suit all skin tones! But the very obvious golden shimmers in it make apt for night time application only!

Packaging:
Well this is probably the USP of this blush..It comes in a sleek and neat steel grey packaging,it has a mirror too and the pan click locks. Very travel friendly and classy for sure!

My Take:
I love peachy blushes and this love made me buy Faces Glam On Cream Blush in Peach Glow. I was in love with it the moment I saw it. The packaging is neat,sleek and classy.The mirror finish added to it being upmarket. But soon all this excitement was gone...the moment I swatch it :( 
A- it wasn't peachy as the name suggests..its bronzy orange :(
B- the shimmers..I'm not a fan of shimmery blushes and this one's way too shimmery for me The golden shimmers though miniscule in size come out in abundance in just a single swatch. Very Obvious in both day and night!
C- Its not creamy :( Infact its way too hard to blend and I can't even imagine applying it in winters because it gets even more stiff then! 
Now it sits pretty in my stash (don't forget its good to look at :P) waiting for all the weddings,engagements,birthdays,housewarmings and the like.. coz I definitely don't see myself wearing it other than that :/
Unfortunately my Camera couldn't capture the shimmers :(

My Likes:
1. Beautiful Packaging.
2. Comes with a mirror.
3. Click locks.
4. Takes very little space in bag.. travel friendly.
5. Won't melt in summers.
6. Highly pigmented.
7. Would look beautiful on occasions and night outs.
8. Easily available online and at faces kiosks.

My Dislikes:
1. The golden shimmers are too obvious.
2. Difficult to blend.. brushes can't blend it,u'll have to dip fingers.
3. The shade- its not peach its intense orange with red undertones.
4. Only a party wear!
5. Staying power is poor.. and the shimmers are left behind :(

Last word:
There are certain cons of online shopping... this was one! Good only for night parties :/

Repurchase:
Hell NO!!!!

Overall rating: 2.5/5
