Revlon Haute Pink (002) Powder Blush – Review & Swatches

By

Hiya everyone! This is my first post for Pinkrimage and I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful blog. Hope all of you are having a wonderful new year. Today I shall be reviewing the Revlon Haute Pink Blush which is from one of my favorite brands (okay it comes second to Mac and Bobbi Brown but they are… well … EXPENSIVE!!) 

Honestly, this one’s a little old. I bought it during the 2016 Diwali sale from one of the Pantaloons stores in my city, Kolkata but haven’t had the chance to review it. I’m not really a blush person but couldn’t resist the huge discount and regretted buying it the very next day. You’ll know why very soon. Let’s get down to business, shall we?

MY REVIEW OF REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH:

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

From Revlon comes a powder blush that is silky, buildable and available in 3 finishes (matte, satin and shimmer) and shades for every skin tone. Color-true prismatic pigments create vibrant, multi-dimensional cheek color that looks freshly applied all day.

  • Enriched with a good for your skin Botanical complex of Green Tea, Gingko Biloba & Grape extracts.
  • Silky smooth texture, lightweight feel & natural finish.
  • Unique Pop-up mirror, the perfect solution for easy application anywhere, anytime.

HOW TO USE:

  1. Take a medium sized fluffy brush and lightly sweep over the blush. Tap to remove excess.
  2. Apply onto the apples of your cheek towards your temples. Smile while application.
  3. Blend well with a separate brush.

INGREDIENTS OF REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH:

Contains talc and comes with a rash warning, so make it a point to test it on your skin before buying.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH:

Packaging:

The Revlon powder blush comes in a travel-friendly, matte black plastic case with a rectangular see-through window and the shade label on the top left-hand corner. A brush and a mirror accompany the product that comes in really handy on the go. Details as to ingredients, manufacturing and expiry date are mentioned at the back.

Net weight:

5gms. Good enough at this price.

Colour:

The color is a very true pink with blue undertones. Hence, it is best suited for ladies with cool skin tones. I’m fair with strong yellow/Asian undertones, and this colour doesn’t look natural. It also has very fine silvery shimmers which aren’t quite visible.

Texture and Pigmentation:

I am really disappointed with the texture. It is rough and powdery. Pigmentation is average and you need at least 4 strokes to build some colour on your cheeks. Blend and it completely vanishes. If you are just starting off with blushes, this one’s good for practice as it will never break you out.

Lasting power:

Don’t even ask! I applied the blush and went on to do my eye makeup. By the time I was done, the blush had already vanished from my face and I have a normal to dry skin. Naturally, it would be even worse for oily skin. With a strong base, 10 strokes and a setting spray, it stays an hour. Ughh!

Removal:

A simple face wash takes it off completely. However, I use Johnson’s Baby Oil to remove all my make up.

The Brush:

The brush is small and soft. But I’d advise you to use your own brushes when at home and keep this one restricted to travel.

SWATCHES OF REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH

To sum up,

PROS OF REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH:

  1. Sturdy and travel-friendly packaging.
  2. Due to its average pigmentation, there is no fear of caking up your cheeks. It will never give you a clown face.
  3. Comes with a mirror and a brush.
  4. Hassle free removal.

CONS OF REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH:

  1. Poor texture and average pigmentation.
  2. Not suitable for any skin tone other than fair, preferably with cool undertones. You can use it as a pale pink blush also.
  3. Doesn’t last at all and frequent touch-ups are required. You really don’t want to rush off to the washroom that many times in the middle of an interesting date, do you?
  4. For a below-average product such as this, the price is steep.

WOULD I RECOMMEND/REPURCHASE: 

DEFINITELY NOT! I wouldn’t recommend buying this even if you get a 50% discount like I did. Coming from a brand like Revlon, this one’s a complete dud. Seriously Revlon, Maybelline makes better blushes at half the price. You can find a much better blush for Indian skin online.

PRICE OF REVLON HAUTE PINK BLUSH: 

Rs.695

RATING:

2.5 out of 5

Have you tried any other blushes from Revlon? Which is your favorite blush?

    I usually like this brand a lot and I would think this is a great product. Especially that you could get in 50% off. But well… it vanished after an hour? Poor texture? Not worth the price. Thanks for sharing your review!

    Thanks for such an honest review. I prefer a mineral blush that is healthier for skin and also isn’t tested on animals.

    • Shreya Bhattacharyya 1 year ago

      Testing on animals is a huge issue? Most of the budget brands in India test on animals so there’s no escaping it?

    It looks like a gorgeous shade! I like that it has kind of a metallic sheen to it. It’s a really lovely pink, I’d totally wear it!

      It is a gorgeous shade but sadly doesn’t last at all. But you could definitely give it a try if you want?

    I really do like the color, but knowing that it isn’t long lasting enough to even be able to finish the rest of your makeup is very disappointing.

    This one looks really good! I thought it looked VERY pink in the pan but your swatches look very natural. I’d have given this one a go up until you stated its flaws. I always love a good and honest review.

    This is a super thorough review, I am impressed! In fact, I’m more impressed with your writing than I am with the blush LOL It only stays on an hour? What’s the point in buying it then? You’d think a brand like Revlon would create a better product. WOW

      Try it Stephanie, works wonders and is good for your skin. You could also use olive oil or coconut oil. They work too!

    This shade of pink is perfect for my skin complexion. I need something like this now, during the colder season, because I look very pale. It is a solid brand, I have used many Revlon products over the years.

    • Shreya Bhattacharyya 1 year ago

      It is a solid brand! But my experience with this was horrible as you already know. But you can surely give it a try as the colour is perfect for pale complexions?

    This looks very pretty so it’s a shame that it doesn’t last long and they test on animals. It’s surprising how pigmented it looks on your brush.

    I think the color of this blush is too pink for me, I like it just fair and not as pinkish or reddish. Ive had revlon products before and I love it maybe I just need another color and I will definitely love it.
