My $0.02:

Ps: for those who’re not aware of it, Silkygirl is the South East Asian version of Wet n’ Wild (Available only in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei if I’m not mistaken).


Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):
These blushes come in 4 shades:



01 Nectar Blush - a matte mid toned peachy pink
02 Dune Rose - a light shimmery plummy pink
03 Flashing Rose - a bright clean matte pink
04 Honeywood - a brownish orange

These blushes are VERY pigmented, so adopt a light hand while applying them to avoid looking like clown! Out of the 4, Dune Rose and Honeywood are slightly shimmery (cannot see with the naked eye) and the other 2 are matte.

The Applicator & Packaging:

These blushes come in a clear plastic casing, and you get a free brush! :D


The brush looks scratchy but is surprisingly quite soft! i don't recommend using it to apply the blush though, unless you want two thin stripes across your cheeks! lol! Use a fluffy brush instead!

Texture:
These blushes are not very finely milled, so be sure to buff it in nicely.

Time Test:
These blushes are quite lasting!! The lasted the whole day on my cheeks which is excellent!!

Price & Availability:
These blushes are sold for RM17.90 each, which is rather cheap! They're available at the Silkygirl section of most Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket! :)

Usage:
Honestly speaking i seldom reach for these blushes as i much prefer my NARS / MAC Blushes, but these blushes make a wonderful alternative for those on a budget! :)


In a Nutshell:


The perfect blush for the budget concious! It lasts the whole day too!

Likes: Excellent pigmentation, Lasting power, Cheap, Easily available!
Gripes: The powder could be more finely milled, A little more shimmer would be nice
Repurchase: No

Rating:
3.5 Stars! It's a pretty good drugstore product, but i prefer other brands :)
