ColorBar Blush - Shade Plum Brown Review

Hola ladies! I am seriously lagging behind on my posts. But, at times I couldn't muster the energy to post even when I plan to do. And, when I sit to do one, my internet chooses to betray me at that moment. Like today, I spent 2-3 hours doing nothing but to wait for it to get stable. Uggghhh!! And before it changes its mood again, let me get on with today's review.

I don't know how I became so crazy for blushes suddenly, and now I hardly go out without wearing some. So, today I would be reviewing the ColorBar Blush in shade Plum Brown.

 PRICE: Rs.300


WHAT THEY CLAIM: Available in five shades, Plum Brown, Cosmic Rose, Fuchsia, Peachy Rose and Just Earth, the Blusher accentuates the cheek area giving a glow to the face.

This silky powder contains a moisture balance formula that is easy to blend and keeps the skin smooth, hydrated and nourished for soft cheeks with just the right hint of color.


Left: Blended    Right: Unblended


I wanted to try Peachy Rose but, it was OOS, but I am glad I got the Plum Brown one because Peachy Rose seems to be similar to my Deborah Milano Rosa Pesca and I wouldn't have liked two similar buys at the same time. Plum Brown is a powdered blush with finely milled particles and hence blends easily. It is shimmerless and the shade is a pretty light brown with just a hint of peach (I don't see plum) that would flatter most of the skintones. For very fair tones this can used for contouring too. On an average it stays for more than 4 hours on my dry skin with very slight fading. The packaging is sturdy, with two compartments inside. The upper one has the blush, while the lower one has an attached mirror and a small brush which is really soft but shreds like crazy. It would have been a perfect travel friendly blush, had the brush was a little more useful. 

  • Highly pigmented and easy to blend.
  • Didn't cause breakout or irritation.
  • This shade is non-shimmery and can be worn anytime.
  • Can be layered to use for contouring.
  • Stays for more than 4 hours on me.
  • Price is comparatively reasonable for the quantity, but I hope they don't hike the prices again.
  • The brush is soft but shreds crazily and hence can't be used.
  • Almost all the shades look similar to me barring the peachy rose.
If you are new to blushes, it's a nice brand to start with, without burning a hole in the pocket. For me, other than the peachy Rose I might not get any other shade, though I really loved the quality. 

RATINGS: 4.5 out of 5
