Girlactik 'Florence' Star Blush Review

Girlactik Star Blush 'Florence'

Girlactik 'Florence' Blush ($18/.12oz) is described as a matte coral blush that blends well and provides a nice natural color. Girlactik's blushes come in (6) different colors.

Available in (3) shimmers: Naples, Bora Bora, Havana and (3) mattes: Florence, Madrid, Milan.

Florence is more of a pink coral rather than an orange tone coral. It has a true matte finish and has a silky smooth texture. Florence is not patchy at all (unlike some other matte blushes) and blends easily into the skin.

Girlactik doesn't play when it comes to the pigmentation in its products. One swipe to your brush is enough for a natural flush of color on the cheeks. If you've seen my previous post on Girlactik's Matte Lip Paint you know how great the quality of their products is. If you missed it, CLICK HERE.

With the use of a face primer and setting spray the blush stayed on for about 9 hours.

I am absolutely in love with Girlactik's packaging! The .12oz blush is housed in a slim grey mirrored compact and the click-to-close cap has a full mirror. Both the box and product packaging give a higher end elegant feel to the makeup line. The small compact is great for traveling and is about the same size as the Make-up Designory blushes. That being said the amount of actual product in the compact is about half the size of blushes by MAC. For just a few bucks more you can get double the amount of product for a MAC blush.

If you are looking for a high quality pink tone coral blush this is for you! The pigmentation and smooth texture of Girlactik's Star blush is definitely a must-try. Although the blush itself is not a ton of product I don't mind it because I really do like the packaging more than most other brands I've tested and I do believe that factor comes into play with the value of makeup products.
