Color Studio Professional Pro blush in Audacious Orange [Review]



I'd been reading raving reviews of the Color Studio Professional blushes on some beauty blogs but hadn't tried any until I got this one in the PBBC Bloggers Swap couple of months back.

Easy to blend with foundation for any skin tone

CSP Pro Blush in Audacious Orange Swatch [Blended]
My Thoughts:
The CSP Pro blush has a black plastic flip-open packaging with a transparent lid which shows the color of the blush inside. The blush is more on the bigger side with 13gm of product which is a LOT for the price!
Available in 4 other shades, this shade called Audacious Orange is a bright coral almost orange which looks quite scary in the pan but is actually very wearable. It has slight shimmer also but that doesn't show up much on the face, imparts a glowy finish and that's about it.
It's a perfect color for summers, you can skip the bronzer and highlighter with this and still get the sun-kissed fresh-faced glow.
The texture is incredibly smooth and satiny, when applied it blends nicely and effortlessly but as it is heavily pigmented, I'd suggest layering it slowly, starting with the lightest application possible, on my first attempt I picked up a lot of it on my brush and had a hard time blending it out.
Lasting power is about 3-4 hours on me, the intensity starts to fade after that and needs to be re-touched.
What I didn't like about it was the powder-y-ness [is that a word?] apparent in the heavy swatch above and the fact that bits of powder tend to come off in the pan as well. Other than that it's a winner product!

Price and Availability:
Available nationwide in super stores for PKR 600, you can also order online from Just4Girls.pk.

Good-Quality, budget-friendly blush, I would recommend it to anyone who has a thing for peachy/coral blushes!

  4. From the swatch it looks similar to Slek Rose gold but that is duo tone perhaps with bit of pink in it. You're right that IS a lot of product. The size of these is massive! :)

    1. you're right rose gold has a rosey pinkiness with gold shimmer, this can almost be considered a matt except for the subtle silver shimmer specs! :) x
