Essence Silky Touch Blush Review and Swatches

I rarely buy makeup since the day I learned that I am pregnant. In case you did not know, giving birth in the Philippines is very costly. However, during one of my trips to the department store, I spotted these blushes on sale. They are being sold for only 100 pesos each and I could not resist such tempting offer. I only got three shades and after using these blushes for some time now, I should have gotten all the colors that were available that time.
These blushes are pigmented and has a very smooth texture. On the pan, they seem to be gritty and filled with chunks of glitter. It is a different story when these blushes are swatched and applied on the cheeks. They give of a natural seamless glow sans any hint of glitter but with the slightest almost invisible shimmer. These blushes are not flat out matte but delivers a natural glow on the cheeks. I got the shades, (from LEFT TO RIGHT) secret it girl, natural beauty and baby doll.

Secret It Girl is beautiful orangey coral shade
Natural Beauty is my ultimate favorite amongst the three shades. It is a muted brownish rosey peach shade that looks oh so divine. It may looked faint when swatched but it gives off the most natural glow on my cheeks. It is not pink or peach, the color just looks so natural on me.
Baby Doll  is a light rosy pink shade that surprisingly looks good on my medium yellow skintone.
These blushes are remarkably long lasting. They blend very well on the cheeks. They do not cling on to dry patches and certainly does not accentuate my rashes.
Overall, these blushes are such a steal for 100 pesos. I would not mind paying its original price of 200 + pesos because the texture longevity and pigmentation are really great for a drugstore find.
