Ipsy truly stumbled upon a beauty gem in February's Glam Bag! City Color Cosmetics has a line of blushes rightfully labeled Be Matte Blushes. After that bag is when a fellow YouTuber Catarina Smith released her Be Matte Blush swatch video she purchased a lot of the collection and made a enabling video for us all, instantly I ordered some. So I thought I would share the ones I am loving with you guys!
(Clockwise) Fresh Melon, Guava, BlackBerry, Papaya
First off can I just tell you how enormous these blushes are They are seriously bigger then my palm. You get 8.5 grams of product for only $2.99 that is almost criminal.
The quality of these blushes is marvelous. They are velvety soft, the color saturation is mindboggling. Again, I say for only $2.99
Bendability is smooth and seamless. Although, these are super pigmented and a few are a tad powdery they are easy to blend and the powder causes no issue.
The packaging is thin feeling but like I noted in my April Favorites, I would rather they put the money into the product and they certainly have.
Now on a side note; if you are allergic to Talc you may want to avoid these. I know in some it causes breakouts. So just know that Talc is the number one ingredient in the product which means that it contains the most of that substance.
(L-R) BlackBerry, Fresh Melon, Guava, Papaya
These are just an example of the shade range that they carry. They have shades for every skin tone. These are my favorite, and I highly recommend these for anyone with a light to medium skin tone. If you have a darker skin tone do not even fret my beauty babes, they have shades I wish I could wear but I am simply to light.
If you have watched my April Favorites video these made the list...easily. I have tried a few more items from City Color Cosmetics, so believe me if I find anymore gems I will let you guys know.
As you can see from the swatches below. The pigmentation is outstanding. I have to say these are my favorite drug store blushes out of the ones I have tried.
So please pop by City Color Cosmetics website and pick up a few of these wonderful blushes!
