A Summer Perfection: Cover Girl Instant Cheek bones Contouring Blush in Peach Perfection.

Hello Ladies!
Summers are the perfect time to get peachy. What could do that better than this blusher.

Know it!!
Cover girl Instant Cheek Bone contouring Blush is a trio of a Contouring, Blusher and Highlighter shade.
The packaging is pretty down to earth. Nothing much Fancy.

The shades peer through the transparent lid bearing the CG logo. The size is travel friendly and though there is not a mirror included, yet its absence is never observed.

Brush

There also is a medium size brush with the trio which again is quite ordinary and one does not reach for it much.
Use it!!
Cover girl has always been one of the brands which makes me nostalgic. My early teen years and even the childhood memories have Cover Girl products in them. My mom used to have them and then some of my early  make up experiences which obviously were the products nicked from my mom's stash, always had Cover Girl in them . Though now many other brands have come forward but Cover Girl being so close to my past always rings a merry bell.

Cover Girl Instant Cheek bones Contouring Blush in Peach Perfection is targeted wholly towards bringing a peachy fresh color to the cheeks.

These three shade are quite well coordinated and bring out a gorgeous color when blended together. All of them have quite amazing pigmentation and give a good color pay off.

Shades

They normally look really blunt and bold but all of them have a slight pink undertone one way or another. Thus they manage to create a balanced look. After all peach is kinda a blend of pink and orange. innit?

Contour,Blusher and Highlighter Swatches

Contour shade
 The contouring shade is the darkest of three and is more towards Coral Orange. It is a perfect shade to enhance the hollow of cheek and bring natural shadows and angles to face.

Blusher Shade

The blusher occupies the largest area and is a Salmon Peach shade.It goes right on Apple of Cheeks towards temple and blends in to the contour shade. I loved how it fills in the space between contour and highlight shades.

Highlighter shade
The Highlighter is a Peachy Champagne shade.A very suitable shade for highlighting. Reflects the cheek in right areas.It is applied right along the cheek bone towards temple and sometimes in a "C" shape, towards the highlighted part of eye brow.

Though I was expecting the blusher and contour shades to be matte. The texture of the shades came off as everything you can associate with a shimmery cheek color. They have a great sheen and are Sparkly, Glimmery and Glittery. Though personally I am not a big fan of shimmery products but this one still stays in my stash because the glitter is not actually chunky but is pretty fine and does not tend to fall off my cheeks and even on my clothes like others do. I might even have liked it more if they weren't that shimmery, but the shades are so gorgeous that I would still have liked to try it once.
I  really love the idea of jotting all three necessary cheek products together. You don't have to carry a highlighter, blusher and contour powder separately but just have this trio. That can bring appropriate amount of color to right areas of face.

All shades Blended

Another reason why I still hold out to them is that matte products normally tend to flake out or make skin patchy. This one blends beautifully. I dont really have to spend a hell lot of time to unify them together.The staying power of the shade is quite good for a non matte product. They carry good amount of sheen and shade to them to show a healthy glowing flushed face.
The brush which comes along is not great shakes. It can be used to apply the product on cheeks but must not be used for blending. The bristles are a little coarse and may sting the skin.
 I normally use them with my e.l.f essential contouring brush. Being a standard size brush, it dips easily in to the pan and being angled lays each shade on to the desired area. More over it blends the shades with perfection.
Like it!!
