I love blushes. Maxfactor has some very interesting shades of blushes. I have always loved natural looking blush. Natural blushes give your cheek a little uplift and do not look like you have a ton of makeup on. It just gives a hint of colour to flush up your complexion. This has been with me for a long time now, so I decided to review this today. Let us know how this blush performed.

In Detail MaxFactor Flawless Perfection Blush 223 Natural Glow Review and My Experience
The blush comes in a very nice transparent see through packaging. It has a little applicator brush inside which I am not very happy with. I mean its too soft to be used as an applicator.
Coming to the blush itself, the colour of the blush is a very soft and cool toned pink with the finest silvery shimmers. I mean I find it a little to light to be natural. Nevertheless I love the lovely highlighted look it imparts the cheeks. The shimmers don’t really show up on the skin but they make your cheeks glow.
I find the texture of the blush to be a little chalky to be honest. Not saying its scrathy, but I would have preferred a texture more satiny. The pigmentation is not something I would give extra points for. Its average. But I guess its justified to have a moderately pigmented blush when they are trying to sell it as a “natural” blush.
Staying power I would say is okay. If I am used my foundation/primer, it stays on slightly longer. On bare cheeks this does not give a natural look. However if you wear may be a little BB cream, this gives a nice highlighted glowy natural look.
On the swatches, if you look at the first swatch, I have a concentrated swatch on the right side to give you an idea about the actual colour because in the packaging, it looks like its a deeper shade. However this is a very light shade. This won’t suit a lot of skin tones. It will not suit most of Indian skin tones.
Overall I feel this is an okay blush which does give a natural glowy look. But this is quite hard to work with because of the chalky texture and moderate pigmentation. Also the shade is such that I am not sure its going to suit all the Indian skin tones. So make sure to try it before buying.
