Product Review: Senna Cheeky Blush

If you can only get one product from Senna Cosmetics, make it the Cheeky Blush in Coy. Here’s why:

Cheeky Blush is available in six shades. I have Coy, a beautiful peachy pink that gives cheeks a nice and glowy flush. It is chock full of shimmers, so get ready to sparkle.

I love the look. It’s not shimmery enough to make you look like a disco ball, but it’s not for the faint of heart either. If you don’t like your blushes shimmery, you’d better skip this.

Coy is insanely pigmented so if you’re a pale princess like me, be careful when you apply it. Blush never looked good when it’s overdone.

Cheeky Blush is cream blush. Super soft to the touch, it blends effortlessly into the skin. But unlike most cream blushes, it doesn’t feel sticky on the cheeks at all.

But what really impressed me about this blush is the staying power. I rarely use cream blushes cos they tend to disappear pretty soon and need to be reapplied frequently.

I was very pleasantly surprised when after 8 hours of wear, Coy was still there! After that, it starts to fade but I only need to reapply it once a day. Not bad for a cream blush at all.

Dao, it’s a really beautiful shade. I was hoping to post a FOTD so you all could see how pretty it is but because I have very pale skin and I apply it lightly not to resemble a clown, the blush was so washed out and couldn’t really be seen in the pix 🙁 I’ll keep trying though 😉

Oh, I was going to ask the same question as Dao…what a pity it doesn’t photograph well, it looks gorgeous! I’m a blusher lover, I look awful without some colour in my cheeks! Did you order it directly from their website? xx

Anna, I guess it’s because I have very pale skin. Maybe I should try applying more when I take pix. I may look like a clown in real life but maybe it’ll show well in pix and I can take it off afterwards, I’ll have to try that 🙂 I wish you all could see it better, it looks so beautiful and glowy.

The blush, like all the other Senna products, was sent to me by a Senna pr representative for consideration. Which reminds that I have to start adding how I get the products to every post. I wanted to wait and write the disclaimer first but now that I have done that, I’ll start including this info to every review, both future and past (which may take a while 🙂 ).

Nikki, it is 🙂

prettybeautiful, no it doesn’t look red at all. It’s a lovely peach pink on the cheeks and can be applied very sheer too 🙂
