Pinkies Collection Blusher in Cinnamon – Photos, Swatches & Review
From the photo above, it may look like a it’s more of a peach-colored blush, but really, it’s a vibrant neon orange blush (only a tad bit lighter). Did I confuse you? Sorry I didn’t mean to. It’s just that the camera doesn’t give much justice to the blusher’s color/shade.
Anyway, as for the product’s packaging, just like most Jazzy/Pinkies Collections blushers, this one comes with a sleek, circular, black plastic container with a see-through lid, allowing you to take a peek at the shade without really opening it. It also has some resemblance to the packaging of MAC’s blushes, which I think most local brands here are trying to emulate, only most of the brands here contain a blush applicator. Speaking of blush applicator, the applicator is located at the bottom of the product. The product opens up revealing the blush/shade first, then it opens up once more revealing a decent-sized mirror and the slot where the blusher applicator is located. As for the applicator, this one has a soft, handy blush applicator, only, we all know that most of us don’t use the applicators that comes with our blushers, unless we travel. What I like about the product, however, is that despite its pretty “common” packaging, when the blusher is closed, it stays closed.

If you look at it straight from the pan, it may look intimidating, and if you do a finger swatch, it will appear intimidating as well. However, when applied to your cheeks (& when used with a brush, of course) it will give you that ‘natural flush/blushing glow’ with a hint of orange. My mama calls it ‘tomato cheeks’ and she likes it when I wear it. Also, it will give you that dewy finish, perhaps due to its color, which is very timely since its summer. Since it has a dewy finish, I no longer feel the need to apply a highlighter. And since it has a bit of an orange tint, I also don’t apply a bronzer/contour any more. I actually tried once, and I ended up looking like an oompa loompa. Yeesh.
The blusher has a good color pay off, but it can be a bit powdery as well, so I guess the ‘ol ‘dip and tap’ method is necessary when using this product. The blusher lasted on me for approximately 6 hours with and/or without primer. The primer did not help prolong the staying power of the blush. The blusher stayed in tact for approximately 6 hours, and afterwards, the color faded gradually starting from the apples of my cheeks. It also doesn’t have a scent, so those who are a bit cautious regarding scented makeup need not to stay away from this one.
Overall, I really have no complaints regarding this product, I like it. It’s the perfect Summer blush. Its something that you would want to use when you would like to just have a touch of color in your cheeks. So, here are my thoughts regarding this product..

As previously mentioned, I don’t really have anything bad to say regarding this product. I love it, and I will continue to use it specially this summer. It’s also very ideal especially if you have a heavy eye makeup. It’s definitely a good shade to consider if you don’t want to use the usual pink, peach or coral blusher that you’ve been using for quite some time now
Other shades, of course
So those are my thoughts regarding the said blusher. I hope you find this helpful if in case you’re thinking about buying something new, and outside your comfort zone.
