Essence blushes work well for fair skin tones. On darker skin tones a lot of build up is necessary but does not look cakey. The pigment is low but still leaves a pretty flush of color.
I love all shades of essence blushes because it is super pigmented and blendable. I buy mines at Ulta and they always have a good deal or it always qualifies for the coupon discounts. The blush size is very generous. There are a lot of color options too, so that is great.
This is a beautiful ombré blush by Essence (drug store brand) The colours start from an orange, to coral to pink. The blush itself is versatile because you can choose whether to want to run your brush through all of the colours, or if you only want to run it through the pink shade or orange shade. The shade is called 10 Heatwave.
I like that it is almost having 3 shades in one which is great! The blush is pretty affordable (4.99) and you really do get a lot of colour pay off! I was a bit too heavy handed when I tried this out so make sure you use a light hand, so you can always build it up if you desire more pigmentation.
The blush reminds me of MAC blush in Ocean City, so the blush by essence is a very affordable and a beautiful dupe!
Overall, this blush blends beautifully and isn't too powdery! This is a perfect blush for the summer time and is now one of my summer favourites.
