I hate to start off the week on a negative note (it is Monday, after all, so why add to it?), but I have rarely been impressed with CoverGirl’s products. I’m a tried-and-true fan of LashBlast Volume mascara, but that’s really it. So when CG started introducing new products recently, I was skeptical, but because I’m a junkie, I had to try some anyway.
The first product that I gave a go is this Clean Glow Blusher in 110 Peaches. You can see it has three different shades of powder, including a bronze-ish shade, a true peach color, and what would appear to be a highlight shade on the bottom. The compact seems to be the same size as their powder compacts, in case you’re curious.
I bought this because I’ve been into two kinds of blush colors lately: bold bronzers and soft shades that simply add warmth. This Clean Glow blush definitely falls into the latter category. She’s a soft, pretty little thing, yes?
When I say soft, I mean it in several ways, not just the color scheme. The pigment for each of the individual shades varies, but even still, they aren’t that rich. The texture is soft and smooth, and when the colors are swirled together, the color is a glow-y and super flattering peach shade. But again, if you’re looking for a super bold product, this isn’t it.
I was impressed with how easily it applies. I’m so used to having to grind into CoverGirl blushes and shadows just to get some product to transfer, so when I can swirl a brush around once or twice and get all I need? Happiness and joy.
Wearing CoverGirl Clean Glow Blusher in Peaches
I look so angry in this photo… The light was fading, so maybe I was?
I have been really impressed with the wear time of this little lady, as well. I easily get 8 hours of wear with minimal fading over my cream foundations. Wasn’t expecting that from CoverGirl!
Overall, I think this is a decent product that would be worth the money if the parameters fit for you. I’m happy to say that I now enjoy two CoverGirl products!
I can’t find these blushes online yet and I can’t remember what I paid ($7.99?), but I purchased mine from Ulta, so I know they’re at least sold there. I think they’re sold in drugstores and Targets as well.
Even though I do NOT enjoy warm weather, I do enjoy the produce it brings. Today’s breakfast included some massive strawberries and some golden cherries!
I hope you have a great week! We can do this!
