Drugstore Blush RAVE - Loreal True Match

i cant believe i stopped using this!

Ive had this huge crush on this one blush - L'oreal's true match in Innocent Flush (n3-4) since... forever lol well actually, this is my second compact already so you can tell how much i loveeeeed it! but ever since i started hauling more, i've forgotten about this for the past little while :(

Anyways, i've been seeing alot of fellow bloggers post on "forgotten makeup products" or posts about "stopping their own stash" and totally got inspired to take a peek into mine :p looking back into what i have, i'm finding quite a few gems that really needs to come out of the drawer and into my makeup bag! :D

So, today's post is going to be this one blush that i absolutely adore but sadly, forgotten about until now :(

innocent flush n3-4
a gorgeous matte true peach.

comes with a mirror and a brush that is not TOO scratchy

this blush is SOOO soft and silky!

What They Say:
True Match Blush flawlessly complements your skin’s tone and texture. Coordinates perfectly with True Match Makeup, Powder and Concealer. True-to-life shades precisely match your skin tone and undertone, leaving you with the most natural flush of color imaginable.

A unique Opti-Match Technology formula provides a skin-true texture that blends smoothly, never looks chalky or cakey. Stays fresh and natural-looking for hours. Oil-free, vitamin-rich, and non-comedogenic.

Packaging - 4/5
This comes in your average compact case with a mirror and blush included for easy touchups on-the-go. There is a clear lid so you can see the shade inside and the overall compact isnt too bulky. 

I actually find the included brush to be a LOT better than any other i've tried. its reasonably soft and is also slightly angled! The only downside to the packaging (other than the cheap looking silver plastic) is that the brush touches the mirror slightly when the compact is closed causing the mirror to get blurry at times.

Product - 5/5
First off, this blush is a gorgeous matte true peach shade which gives off a very natural flush to the cheeks when applied. It is super soft and silky (the softest & silky-est blush i've ever felt!) and super blendable. The pigmentation is great and is easily picked up by any powder/blush brush. The color goes on lightly to give you a light flush, but can definitely be built up heavier to give more of a peachy rosy cheek.

- super soft and silky
- super blendable
- gorgeous matte color
- great pigmentation
- brush and mirror included
- inexpensive 6g for $6-10
- available in drugstores

- silver plastic packaging can look cheap
- brush in compact touches the mirror


I absolutely love this blush and have heard it is a close dupe for MAC's peaches but i dont own that blush so i cant be certain. Looking at swatches, peaches seems to be slightly darker?

But, i can definitely say that if you have fair-medium skintone, this blush would look great! For the darker skinned beauties, i would probably recommend that you choose a different shade (loreal offers a wide range of these blushes) as innocent flush may be too light for you.

However, this line of blushes are definitely top notch and im surprised that they are not talked about more! great color, great texture and pigmentation & great price! What more do i need? :)

certainly like your web-site however you have to check the spelling on several of your posts.
Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I'll surely come again again.

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning
to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something unique. P.
S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
