Review: Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher

silkygirl shimmer duo blusher review

Hello gals! Who else here joined the last Shopee and Lazada sale? With the holidays approaching, those sales are surely banking a lot of moolah, I can't help but do a checkout for my wish list there. In addition to that I got my own planner for next year, I bought a unicorn planner from my sister which is also featured in today's product photos for Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher! Woohoo, it's been a while since I reviewed a blush so this is something new. More photos after the jump!

What is it? 
Silkygirl says:
Blusher with ultra-fine texture and silky smooth formula, in pairs of shimmer and non-shimmer for highlight and natural glows. Non-comedogenic, fragrance-free. Formulated for Asian Skin.

The packaging is cute and the top is transparent so I can easily find the right shade I need. It is compact and comes with a soft brush on-the-go, the only thing missing is the mirror.

I like how the product is well sealed upon purchase and the ingredient list as well as the manufacturing date is clearly specified at the back of the case.

Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher comes in pair of shimmer and matte shades. It gives a natural glow when applied together. It comes in 4 shades. From left to right: Cheeky Peach - Sunset Glow - Petal Pink - Sunset Glow.

A closer look to each shade:

 01- Cheeky Peach
The left light pink's shimmers is very subtle and can be used together with the light orange shade for a hint of glow.

 02- Blushing Pink
Both of the colors in the pan has light shimmers.Both of them are very light pink and best used as a highlighter.

 03- Rose Petal
The blusher with the best color pay-off among the four. The combination of very light pink and dusty rose on the right is good. This is my favorite from the bunch and both of them have very light shimmers.

 04- Sunny Glow
This is a summer light orangey shade blush and looks great when applied with the light shimmer.

Now time for swatches! The texture is nice, smooth and blends nicely although it's a bit chalky. The pigmentation is too light for a blush in my opinion but it can be good if you want some glow without looking too made up. I needed to swipe it for 4-5 times for the color to show but it still doesn't appear vibrant on photos.

How much and where to buy?
P329 available in Silkygirl kiosks nationwide, you may also check out their website.

What I love
  • Texture is smooth
  • Blends nicely
  • Gives a subtle glow
  • Cute case with clear cover
  • Buildable colors
  • Can be used as a highlighter
  • Didn't break me out
  • Formulated for asian skin
  • Comes with a brush
  • Case is sealed upon purchase

What I don't
  • A bit chalky
  • Poor pigmentation
  • Needs constant touch ups
  • No mirror with the case

Will I repurchase? 
As a blush no, but for a subtle highlighter maybe yes but I got all of them now. I'm not sure when will I finish all of my blushes.

I only recommend Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher for make-up starters who doesn't like to look "too done" and just needs a subtle glow.
