Rimmel Powder Blush in Smoked Oyster

Rimmel Powder Blush in Smoked Oyster

I'm a big fan of Rimmel as a highstreet brand and have been since I started buying make up, as their products are always quite reasonably priced I decided to have a quick look at the counter when I was searching for a coral peachy blush as a change to my usual girly pinks.

I came across 037 Smoked Oyster and fell in love, in the pan this blush looks like a light tawny bronzer but on the skin transforms into a lovely coral colour- just enough pink to stop it being orange, and tiny flecks of gold that subtly catch the light.

The powder itself is silky and blends easily, I use a Real Techniques Kabuki brush to apply my blushers and I do find it needs a good swirl in the pan to get a dense enough colour on the cheeks but as theres barely any fallout and the blush is easily layered it doesn't look too powdery.
In the winter I do like a good amount of colour on my cheeks to brighten me up so in the spring/summer I reckon just a couple of swipes would do, and this will be a gorgeous colour for when the sun actually comes out!

I really like the Rimmel crown logo in the centre of these blushes, I think it somehow makes it look a bit more expensive and also means theres a bit of texture to aid getting the product onto a brush. For some reason I also really like the name Smoked Oyster, not sure Ive ever seen smoked oysters on a menu but it makes a nice change to the 'pink rose' and 'nude flush' type names that blushers usually have.

I have taken a few swatches of the colour on my hand but have used it to compare to a couple of W7 powders coming up in my next post, so will add a link in to that when it goes live.

Ive read a few reviews complaining about the packaging of the mono blushers but I find them quite easy to open despite being a bit of an uncoordinated type, I like that's its very easy to slip into a make up bag but do have a crack in the lid from dropping it so hopefully it will stand up to my abuse!

The Rimmel Powder Blush Mono in Smoked Oyster is available from Superdrug for £3.99.

This pinky coral is my new favourite shade, whats your favourite shade of blusher?
