Faces Glam On Blush 'Peach Glow'

Hello Friends!
Today I am going to review the Faces Canada Glam on Blush in shade 'Peach Glow'.

Product Description:
Faces Glam On Cream Blush gives blushing beauty at your fingertips with this weightless, creamy formula. It lends natural, radiant, long lasting color to the cheeks due to a specially formulated, creamy formulation. Simply dab the Cream Blush onto skin with fingertips to emulate the look of natural, youthful skin.

Rs. 399/- for 3.5 g, but I got it for Rs. 319/- from an online shopping site.

Shades Available:
Peach Glow, Pinked Mauve, Hint of Pink, Rose Quartz

My Take On This Product:
Ever since Faces Cosmetics has launched their Glam on range, I have wanted to purchase their powder blush in ‘Crimson’ and cream blush in ‘Peach Glow’. I got this blush during winters and tried it few times then. The texture of the blush was nowhere near to creamy ones, it was exactly like the lip balms that come in tub packaging and harden up during winters. I tried many times to use this with a blusher brush  but not a single brush of mine could pick even 1% of the product. So I had to continuously dip my fingers and rub against the surface of the blush to warm it up a bit. This blush in the pan looks peachy crimson kind shade with fine golden shimmers. I have to make extra effort to blend this blush on my cheeks. I love peachy blushes a lot rather I am crazy for those but I am very disappointed with this blush. First of all due to its hard texture and second because of the difficulty in blending it. 

During winters this blush used to look very crimson kind of shade on my skin tone, nowhere near peach, so many a times it felt as if someone had punched me hard on my face   :p and sometimes like as if I had developed rashes and all (One of my aunties pointed it out L She asked me if I had developed some allergic reaction) Anyways I just kept it shut in my shelf and was waiting for the summers to approach. Now I find the blush has improved a bit texture wise but it imparts a crimson peachiness to my skin tone now, which if overdone makes me look aged. If I use less, then this lasts for maximum two hours. During day time one can clearly see golden sparkles too very clearly which are distributed throughout the blush. This blush has a pearlish finish and imparts a dewy glow, which is the only good factor about this blush. I loved its sleek sophisticated steel grey packaging, it comes with a mirror too. Its a very travel friendly blush as it never melts in summer and easily fits in my purse too. Though quantity is very less still you need very less and its going to last for a long time.

Pros Of The Product:
-Blush comes in a very nice sleek and sophisticated steel grey packaging.
-Its provided with a mirror which is useful for touch ups.
-A plastic protector is provided to keep the blush mess free and hygienic.
-It’s a pretty peachy crimson shade with fine golden sparkles.
-This blush imparts a nice dewy glow.
-It does not melt in summers like other cream blushes.
-This blush is small, sleek and convenient for travel purpose.
-Available at Faces Canada outlets, several cosmetic stores and online shopping sites.
-Total 4 shades are available in this range.

Cons Of The Product:
-I love peachy blushes but not crimson blushes, this blush imparts a crimson shade to my cheeks which either makes me look sick   :p or aged.
- Its absolutely difficult to blend this product, no brush can help in blending, you need to use your fingers as the texture is pretty hard.
-Dipping fingers every time increases chance of contaminating the blush.
-During day time, I don’t prefer to use it as I dislike golden sparkles on my cheeks then.
-It lasts hardly for 2 hours, the shade fades faster leaving the golden sparkles behind.
-Quantity provided is very less for the price these are available at.
-Quality wise this blush fails, as neither its texture is smooth nor does it stay for long time.

Will I Repurchasing? No way guys, I am finding it difficult to finish the existing one!  :p

My Overall Recommendation: The Faces Glam on blushes no doubt come in improved sleek and travel friendly packaging but quality wise they fail to deliver.The texture of blush is pretty hard, no where like cream blushes and thus its very difficult to blend it.The staying power is around 2 hours maximum. So I think you can skip this range without any regret.I so wish they could have come out with much better formulation.They seem to be pricy for the quantity provided too.
