Essence 'Blush Up' Powder Blush - Pinky Flow

Essence Pinky Flow Blush
I have made it no secret that Essence is my new favourite, affordable brand, so it should come as no surprise that I love another one of there spectacular products.

Essence have a small range of ombre blushes, and not owning a multi-tonal product I snapped 'Pinky Flow' up instantly. The packaging is a clear perspex compact, very minimal and budget like all Essence products, but you have to look past the not too chic packaging and focus on the amazing quality product inside.

I love the idea of having three shades in one compact, and for someone who has never hit pan on a blush the ombre pattern entices me to use it on a daily basis. The colour pay off is good, but not comparable to a NARS blush, which is perfect for me as bright blushes intimidate me, and can make me look doll like against my fair skin. I understand that on deeper and warmer skin tones than mine the colour may get lost, but for fairer skin tones 'Pinky Flow' gives a subtle wash of peachy colour. 
The shade is a matte soft peach rather than pink as advertised, it gives the hint of colour to my cheeks which suits my easy-to-redden skin perfectly.

Unfortunately there are only two shades available in this gorgeous range, hopefully Essence will add more soon. I purchase 'Pinky Flow' through Wilkinsons online for £2.00, which is an absolute bargain! 

Have you tried either of the Blush Up! powder blushes by Essence?
