Rock & Republic Blush

This past weekend I got my Rock & Republic blush!... woo hoo~ :) To be honest, I bought it for the packaging... lol~ I know that's not a good reasoning but whenever I see pictures on blogs and YouTube, I just want it badly! :X It doesn't hurt that the blushes are pigmented and get good raves from people... woo hoo~ ;) When Beauty Story has 50% off R&R blushes, as well as, $15 (all used up) or $10 off codes(I was able to use this one), I could not refuse!... hehe~ The shipping took about 3.5 weeks which isn't bad for me... hehe~ If you would like an invite to Beauty Story, I can invite you if you want. ;)
The R&R blush comes with a cute, black, shiny package.
When you lift the lid, you can see the R&R blush.
Here's how the blush looks out of the package... hehe~ Now for my review...
Product Review: Rock & Republic Blush in Tease

Where can you purchase this: R&R stores, R&R website, and any sites that are selling like Beauty Story
Price: $40 for 0.32 oz/9 g (I got mine for $10 with the discount code.)

Made in U.S.A.

My thoughts: When I first received the blush, I was really excited especially seeing the package... woo hoo~ After I opened the package and saw the color of the blush, I was kind of disappointed to be honest. I was kind of expecting more a pink blush but it has more a lilac color to it in my opinion. I don't own blushes with lilac so this would be my first and didn't know what to expect... hehe~
I thought it might be different if I swatch it, but I was wrong... hehe~ I still saw more lilac than pink. Other than the color, I was pretty impressed it was pigmented!!! The swatch was barely one wipe which blew me away... hehe~ I'm also glad it's not shimmery. I've been really into matte-ish, if that's even a word, products on my face... hehe~

The first day I applied the blush I was really impressed in more ways than one!!! :) For one thing, it's really pigmented and shows well on my skin. Secondly, it lasted all day and that's a big plus!!! Lastly, I was impressed with the color of the blush. It didn't look that lilac on me but a gorgeous tint of color. I LOVE it and want more R&R blushes!... hehe~ :)

Pros:
* R&R; proud to carry a name brand blush.
* Cute packaging.
* Classic looking.
* Good price I got.
* Pigmented.
* Gorgeous color.

Cons:
* Heavy.
* Fingerprints on the metal part of the blush.

Would I buy this again: Yes!!!

Haha, I like lilac-y blushes (and lipsticks), but it doesn't look good on my skintone.

What brush do you apply it with?

Leenda said...

Very pretty blush! It's unique that it has a lilac sort of color to it. =]

Luna said...

Wow, lilac blush? It looks so pretty! I've heard so many nice things about R&R but the prices blew me away.

hey, alyssa! i see that you got the rock & republic blush you were talking about. the packaging is gorgeous. sorry it took me a while to get back to your comments. i actually owe you two comments. hehehe... i liked that nyc blushable creme stick review too. i actually have one in plaza pink. :D i wish i got the color you have, but walmart did not have any more of it. it's limited edition. that's why. hehe...

hey. i was wondering. did the walmart at your brother's place get the meteor eyes glitter e/s yet? i hope that walmart will get it too. seeing you do an eye look with intergalactic and a dupe of gilt by association will look really nice on you. :D

this r&r blush color is really pretty. i think lilac suits your skintone well. light, cool tones look pretty on you. :D i'm glad you got this for a great deal too. i'm also glad you ended up liking the color. you should. it's a great match for you. :D

take care and enjoy your weekend. :D

Wow I was a bit scared when I saw the blush too... I'm glad it worked for you.

TOO BAD I didn't take opportunity to buy these blushes when they were on sale. To have a blush stay on all day sounds AMAZING.
