My take on Jordana USA Powder Blush in Rouge
I had been anxiously waiting for my parcel just because of these beauties. They are really beautiful, enclosed in silver metallic packaging with clear cap that closes with screw threads. Packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. I love the fact that no useless small brush is included because you are the one who has to pay for it ultimately and those small brushes are of no use.
The texture of the product is fine but neither too smooth nor silky. It is really well compacted and you need to swipe the brush with some effort to get ample amount of product on bristles. There is no fallout in the pan. The shade is a vibrant peachy coral shade, although while placing the order online, I expected it to be a vibrant reddish pink from the swatches. Also, the name rouge gives a hint towards red family of colors.
Anyways, talking about the performance, the pigmentation is just average. But disappointingly poor but you of course need to work a bit to show the color on the cheeks. Not so easily blend able, the shade turned out to be slightly chalky. You need to blend it really well to avoid streaks. The finish is pure matte and it adds a pop of color to my cheeks. A perfect summer shade actually. The shade will go perfect for all skin tones, whether fair, medium or dark; you can carry it off easily. Also, it will suit both cool undertones and warm undertones. I have tried to catch the true color in the images and they match 90% of the true shade. It doesn’t clog pores or accentuate them. Just don’t forget to moisturize the face for perfect look before application. The staying time varies from 3-5 hours depending on the skin type. Like for me, it stays good four hours. For very oily skins like my sis has, it stays for maximum 3 hours and dry skins will enjoy upto 5 hours of wearing time.

Well, I will say that these blushes are worth a try especially at such a cheap price tag. Beginners will love them to experiment. This shade isn’t ideally my favourite but I will try my hands on some other shades soon.
Till then, take good care and enjoy the weekend!
Zoe, sad that the pigmentation turned out to be average 🙁 When you try to work more on the blush because of less pigmentation, it would look OTT no? :/ But the packaging is gorgeous!! Superb review Zoe 😀
