Essence Miami Roller Girl Blush in Dates on Skates [Review]


This blush is something I fell in love with at first sight. The beautiful color gradient is just so pretty! and coupled with the fact that the lovely Sidra selected it for me in our Secret Eid Swap makes it all the more special! It's from their Limited Edition Summer collection called Miami Roller Girl which predominantly has pinks, yellows and oranges signifying colors fit for summer.

Essence Claims:
The multi-colored, velvety texture of the blush has a fabulous color gradient from orange to pink to set beautiful accents for a fresh look on the seafront or even at the skater park! available in 01 dates on skates.

My Thoughts:
It's pretty unfair that the packaging of such a gorgeous product be extremely unattractive and cheap-looking! I don't like the all transparent plastic casing, if the bottom was black plastic the general look might have perhaps improved a bit.
Dates on Skates is a gorgeous hot pink to orange Ombre blush, when I saw it for the first time the striking bright colors got me hooked instantly.
It's completely matte and very pigmented. Abundant color appears on the very first swipe, so I'd advise to keep a light hand. The texture is smooth but very powdery, especially when you swirl the brush on it, a lot of powder comes off and is hence wasted.
Being matte it doesn't highlight any imperfections and just adds a pretty flush of color to the face. It can even be used on the eyes as an eyeshadow, talk about versatility!
The lasting power on me is a good 5-7 hours [I being normal to dry-skinned]. I've swatched the three shades you can get out of this blush, on my face, the orange color paired with an orange lip, pink shade with a pink lip and the coral shade with a coral lip! just for fun, it doesn't necessarily have to be that way!:p
The biggest con, that being Limited Edition this is already out of stock almost everywhere! Boo!

Price and Availability:
Available in super stores that stock Essence for PKR 450, you can also order online from Just4Girls.pk.


I love this blush, something for every girl to own considering the affordable price tag and excellent color gradient!!
Have you tried anything from the Essence Miami Roller Girl Collection?
