Will you be wearing coral this summer? I sure will. I love coral shades. They are summery, provide a nice pop of color to your look without being over-the-top and look good on pretty much everyone. Coral blushes, in particular, are a great, quick way to warm up your complexion and the Cheeky Colour Blush in My Coral Crush from Eyeko does that extremely well.
My Coral Crush contains two shades: a bright coral and an orange coral, both infused with gold shimmers. When blended together you get a peachy coral shade that perks up your complexion while providing a healthy glow to your cheeks. I got a few compliments when wearing this blush. It just looks natural on, it gives me a healthy radiant appearance and it’s just the perfect shade for summer.
The texture isn’t soft to the touch but the powder is finely milled, doesn’t fly everywhere and it is easy to blend. But you need to be very careful with application (especially if you have pale skin like me) cos My Coral Crush is extremely pigmented. I didn’t realize that the first time I used it, so I happily swept it on as I usually do with blushes but when I looked in the mirror, to my horror, a clown was staring back at me.
The second time went much better. I used a stipple brush (a fan brush would work just as well) and a light hand and this time, I loved the result. It looked natural, warm and flattering and it stayed put for the entire day. It faded a bit towards the end of the day but there really isn’t any need to retouch it unless you’re going out at night. Keep in mind though, that I have dry cheeks so blushes, even cream one, tend to last long on me.
I’m not sure how I feel about the packaging. The box it comes in is pretty. And I also like the cute Eyeko logo on the packaging and that it includes a mirror to make application easier. The brush included with the blush though has rough bristles that scratch skin and is useless. In addition, the little compartment that houses it makes the packaging quite bulky, which I’m not too keen on. I’d personally prefer to do away with the brush and have a smaller packaging.
