Careline Oil Control Blush

Careline Blush Review

One of my first loves, the ultimate blushes for oily skin.

Today, I’m reviewing my favorite blushes which are the Careline Oil Control Blushes. My favorite shade is Fresh Tomato and Peach Glow. I don't know why it took me so long to review these, I was supposed to get more shades, but whenever I try to look for the two shades I’m after, I never see them. And I think they changed names or maybe they added shades? I’m not sure. I think I saw a shade like Pink Blossom or something.

Let’s take a closer look at the shades in my collection.

Careline Blush Review

Packaging:
I actually like that it comes in this white packaging. I think it just makes the color stand out more. It doesn’t come in a box, and I don’t have the actual packaging, but I’m pretty sure you’ve all seen it in stores. It also comes with a powder puff that I tried to use once because I was in a hurry and desperately needed to put blush on my cheeks, which turned out horribly. So yeah, I won’t be using that powder puff again. It can't really blend.

The blushes are compact which I think is pretty good for travelling. I mean it hasn’t smashed in my bag that I toss on seats and tables and bring everywhere I go. That's a pretty sturdy case for me for the price of PHP 90.00 ($2)

Charming Pink

This is the first blush that I bought from this line. I Googled this up and this was the shade that people mostly had, so I decided to try it. After I got the other shades from this line I realized that Charming Pink was the shade that didn’t suit me that much. I figured it would be better for people with lighter skin tones, and I also found that this shade was the most powdery of the four.

Fresh Tomato

Fresh Tomato is my favorite shade. I know it looks intimidating, but that’s because it’s so pigmented you don’t really need that much. I once thought why would people want to put red blush on their cheeks? And then it hit me that red blush looks great on yellow oriental skin. Quite hard to get a hold of it at first, but when you do, it’s going to work wonders. This shade really lasts me the whole day, about eight hours. It definitely withstands summer heat in the Philippines. If I ever hit pan on this shade, I swear to buy another one. 

Peach Glow

My second favorite shade from the my Careline blush collection is Peach Glow. This shade is perfect for everyday wear or for days when you don’t really want people to notice that you're wearing blush. I love that it’s so natural and it just makes me look healthy when I’m wearing too much matte products. It doesn’t look flat on the face and it's just perfect for a natural look when you're at school or in the office. It can last about five hours on my oily skin. Sometimes I put this first before I put on the shade Fresh Tomato just for extra color.

Rosy Cheek

Rosy Cheek is the newest shade that I have. At first, I was hesitant to buy this because it looked like it had little shimmers on it, but I'm glad that it turned out matte. This is the shade I go to if I don’t want to use Fresh Tomato. It’s a mauvey-pink that people with darker skin tones could definitely rock. It lasts about seven hours and it doesn't have too much fall out at all.

I love these products because it works great for my oily skin. Wear time is incredible for the price. These are pretty pigmented blushes and they've never broken my skin out. Charming Pink was the only shade that I felt powdery. And there's little to no fall-out when I use my Real Techniques multi-task brush with these. Great blushes under PHP 100.

      Yup. I never wore blushes until a year ago haha. Clinique was my first blush ever and Careline was the second one. And now I'm getting more blushes. This is addicting lol

  3. I love love love the first picture!! How do you get pictures so awesome and true to color?
    I really wish I bought Careline products while in the Philippines. I'm still kicking myself for that. I must say, I totally laughed at "Fresh Tomato." That is such an interesting choice to title a blush. "Yes, I want my cheeks to be fresh tomato red." HAHA. :D

    1. I just use Instagram cam coz it's HD and natural light! Very important to be natural light haha.

      Never ever thought I'd wear red blushes coz it seems clownish when you say it but I might try and find more :P
