Silkygirl Blush Hour in 01 Nectar Blush

Silkygirl says: This long-wearing Blusher promises a healthy, natural flush. Its ultra-fine texture promises an excellent color payoff.

Hello everyone, I'm back again to give you a review about a blush that I bought recently from Silkygirl. Maybe you already know about Silkygirl since they are famous with their BB cream but I really fall in love with their blushes. I have Silkygirl Blush Hour in 02 Dune Rose which already become my HG blush since last year (you can read my review here) and I really want to try another shade from this line.

I decide to try 01 Nectar Blush because the colour is like peachy something on the pan and I can't stop thinking about it, LOL! Let's take a look =D

As you can see, Nectar Blush is a matte blush and it's a pretty bright peach. So if you want to have a bright peach blush, this could be the right choice. This blush is very pigmented so use very light hand when use this blush. Perfect for hang out and freshen up my face. If you want natural shade you can choose Dune Rose. It's a natural rosy pink, great for everyday blush. IMO, Nectar Blush is great for light to medium skintone, while Dune Rose is great for almost all skintone.

As I mention on my previous review about Dune Rose, the blushes from this line is powdery, so don't swirl your brush against the pan because it will make them look messy. Just "dab dab dab" on the pan with a light hand and you can build up the colour on your cheek gradually. They are long lasting and blend easily on my cheeks.

The brush is small but very soft. You can use this to apply the blush if you accidentally forgot to bring your blush brush. Very wearable small brush that come together with the blush. The packaging is fragile. My Dune Rose's packaging is crack and I don't know why, hahaha. That's why I pull out the pan and put it together with my Revlon blush >.<

The price is IDR 39500,- but bought this for IDR 27700,- because this November, Silkygirl have sale 30% all item on Saturday and Sunday only in Matahari Dept. Store. It's really a great deal, right? So if you want to try a product from this brand, you can go to their booth on weekend and enjoy the sale ^^

Made in Thailand.

This is the back of the packaging so you can see the ingredients.


What do you think about Silkygirl Blush Hour? Do you have it?
Thanks for reading and have a nice day ^_^

UPDATE! December 16th 2012
It's totally my favorite matte blush nowadays. Really pretty shade! Perfect for my skintone, easy to blend. I reach this one a lot ^_^

My Blush Collection

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my last post ^^
Today I wanna show you my blush collection, requested by some of my friends because they knew that I really really love blushes. This could be a blush porn, so take a deep breath, LOL!

So, these are the blushes that I have right now excluding my first blush that I have when I was on high school (Pixy in 01 Pink Flowers - discontinued) which already broken, messy, and dirty because it fell on the floor several times and that was the first time I realized that blush can break, and another blush that I already gave to my mom (MAC Beauty Powder in Summer Rose - Limited Edition) which I don't like because it's very sheer and takes a lot of effort to use it as a blush, but it has beautiful rose imprint on the surface though.

Okay, now let me open them for you so you can see the colour inside =D

I hope this is no too much. Some of them still brand new and unopened (NYX) while the other already opened but unused yet (Jordana, Milani, Face on Face) but I will use all of these babies for sure. Really really love all of them.

As you can see, I don't have extreme shade like deep purple, bright orange, or a very dark brown, all of them is very wearable. All of them is more about peach, pink, coral, and rosy shade. I have shimmery blush more than matte blush. Well, shimmer blush is pretty, hehehe. The brand is vary too from Indonesian brand to UK brand. Oh well, I don't have Korean brand like Etude and high end brand like Tarte, Benefit, Illamasqua, Stila, or Nars because their price is crazy.

The pigmentation, some of them is sheer and fool-proof and some of them is very pigmented and tricky. The texture, I have powder, baked (IMO, is the best!), cream, and stick. I haven't try liquid yet but I would love to try.

If you wondering why I really love blushes, well I have to say that blush is the most powerful weapon for me. It can brighten up my face instantly especially if I'm looking tired. If I don't sleep well, just a few swipe of blush, then my face looks fresh again with a touch of natural flush. And if my skin looks very pale, then blush can add warmth to my face. MAGIC!

So this is what I believe, “When a girl ceases to blush, she has lost the most powerful charm of her beauty” by Gregory The Great, St.

If you have any question about blushes that I have above, let me now =)

What is you favorite blush? Please share with me, I would love to know =D
