In Detail LOreal Paris Lucent Magique Blush Duchess Rose Review, Swatches, Price and Details
I have a thing for roses. If its anything Rose, I need to have it! I was specially interested in the Duchess Rose variant of this blush Palette.
The palette is as you can see has an ultra glam look. I immediately fell in love with the packaging when I saw these. I mean this was love at first sight. This can almost pass for a luxury palette.
Shades in LOreal Paris Lucent Magique Blush Duchess Rose
The palette Duchess Rose has three different shades of blushes in it. I like the have a nice gradient of shades in this one, going from deeper to pale brighter shades.
The darkest shade is a wine rose pink glowy colour. It can be used as a blush highlighter because it has that pearly shimmeriness to it.
The middle one is a peach shade with a very slight hint of pink to it
The lightest shade is almost a off white bright shade
It looks quite charming from the outside, but when you actually take it on your fingers, I do not find the texture to be satiny or silky. I mean its normal. I have seen better textured blushes at lower price tag.
Again, I was expecting this to have great pigmentation. Unfortunately, this has below average pigmentation as well. I swiped my fingers hard to get that pigment on my swatches. When I take it on a brush, I have to swipe the brush over and over again to get a decent amount of blush on my cheeks.
Again, firstly I had to struggle to get a decent amount of pigmentation on my cheek. Secondly, I could hardly notice it after 2 to 3 hours. I mean this was not powdery or anything, but I do not know why it just goes off quickly. I guess this has to do with the poor pigmentation.
Looking at the packaging, the price tag is totally justified but when it comes to the actual blush features, I am not sure if its worth such a high price tag. Though this particular shade has better shades in it. I wish they come up with a palette exclusively with the wine pink shade which is present in this palette.
Overall I am kind not so happy with this blush. I mean it is better than the blushing kiss and sunset glow varieties. It looked like an ultra high end product by the packaging, but when it actually came to do what its supposed to, I was not very thrilled.
