Today I am going to review a blush from Maybelline which is newly launched. Maybelline always comes with amazing products and amazing prices, this is the reason I love this brand a lot. Nowadays every other drugstore brand is hiking prices like crazy (yes Colorbar, Lakme…I’m talking about you) and thankfully Maybelline has not done anything like this yet.
The blush I’m going to review is the cheeky glow blush which is available in four variants and I’ll be reviewing the “creamy cinnamon”. Let’s see how this blush worked on me.
Price: Rs. 215
- Ultra light weight, silky, blendable powders
- Meet the new blush on the block. So Silky and smooth, it blends flawlessly for the most natural finish.
- Soft texture for a natural hue
- Easily blends with your skin color
My Take on Maybelline Cheeky Glow blush- Creamy Cinnamon:
Maybelline cheeky glow blush in creamy cinnamon is packaged in a round pot which is very tiny and fits in the palm easily. The packaging is cute and travel friendly. There is no brush included in the packaging but I don’t have any issue with that as the included brushes are always useless. Mirror is also missing so you need to carry a mirror along for touch ups.
The shade I’m reviewing is “creamy cinnamon” which is a very pretty peachy-brown shade. The shade is universal and it’s going to suit all skin tones. The shade looks brown in the pan but on cheeks it translates in a peach shade with hints of brown in it. I have dusky complexion and this works well for me as it looks completely natural.
The texture of the Maybelline cheeky glow blush is smooth, finely milled and it blends effortlessly. The texture is silky and it gives uniform color coverage on my cheeks. The shade is decently pigmented and two-three swipes give me enough color for my dusky complexion. If you’re fair then it will be more visible on your cheeks. The shade is buildable which makes it perfect for beginners as you cannot go overboard with the color. The texture and the pigmentation is a clear winner for me and I don’t have any issues in this department.
The shade has fine shimmers which add a nice glow on my cheeks. The blush gives a matte finish which makes it perfect for daytime. This particular shade is perfect for everyday as it looks natural. The staying power is decent considering the low price tag. It stays for around 2-3 hours, a primer underneath can extend the wear-time. I am very happy with the shade and I’m definitely purchasing the other three shades from this range.

Final Verdict: Maybelline cheeky glow blush creamy-cinnamon is a beautiful peachy brown shade which gives a natural matte finish after application. The bluish is perfect for every day as it doesn’t have any obvious shimmers. The texture of the blush is smooth; it blends smoothly, stays for 3 hours (without base) and comes at an affordable price tag… what else we want?
