Revlon Powder Blush - Racy Rose

This month, Revlon has released a new line of powder blushes that includes 8 beautiful shades. I'm a huge blush addict, and I have to admit that I typically prefer high-end formulas. However, I was excited to give Revlon's version a try, and today I have Revlon's Powder Blush in Racy Rose* ($11.95 CAD/0.17 oz) to share with you! Read on to see how I got on with this blush... 

"Soft, natural flush of colour.
Ultra- soft, silky powder blush adds a natural flush of colour to your cheeks. Provides buildable colour with a soft satin finish" - Revlon

Revlon's Powder Blushes come packaged in a square plastic container that also includes a small travel brush. I don't typically use brushes that come with makeup, but this one isn't too bad. The blush itself is incredibly smooth and silky, and I find that it glides onto my cheeks effortlessly. I've been using Real Techniques' Blush Brush to apply Racy Rose, and that combo works perfectly. Racy Rose actually looks a lot like a coral shade to me, so the name isn't too fitting. There is another shade in the range called Classy Coral, but I haven't tried it out. 

Racy Rose is a beautiful coral blush with a healthy sheen to it. There isn't any noticeable shimmer or glitter in the formula, but the sheen brings some life to the blush. I find that this shade works really nicely with my skin tone, but I also think that it would look great on a tan. This blush is a bit sheer, so I did use two layers of Racy Rose to get the pigmentation that I like. This formula lasted about 7 hours on my cheeks before it started to fade. For a drugstore blush, I'm really quite impressed!

I was really surprised by how silky this blush felt - I really like the formula! This isn't the longest wearing blush that I've tried, but I really can't complain about 7 hours. Racy Rose has a beautiful sheen to it, and if you like a more natural look then you can definitely skip the highlighter with this one. Have you tried any of Revlon's new powder blushes? Which of the 8 shades is your favourite? :)
