I was talking to a friend of mine from the US and she was astounded to
learn that the brand isn't available in Singapore anymore.
CoverGirl Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush - Refined Rose
This little palette has been sitting on Mom's dresser for YEARS! I have no idea how many, but it has been there for as long as I remember. Most probably close to 15 years?! (」ﾟﾛﾟ)」 Kindly let me know if you have any leads, yah?
You gotta admit, the colors still look lovely after all these years, though I would never, ever let it touch my face. Hence, no camwhore moments (lol)
The pigments are swatched once and the payoff is incredible. They impart a gentle glow on my cheeks arm and shows up without being too obvious. I particularly love the one on the far right, it looks like soft velvet!! The middle one is the epitome of a healthy glow, whereas the first one on the left is too dark for my skintone.
I headed over to CoverGirl's website and found that this blush is still available! Although the packaging looks similar, with a good change of palette, the colors look a whole lot lighter. Or maybe Mum's blushes are far too ancient and have oxidised, hence they look darker??
Somehow I need to place a disclaimer that my dear mother no longer uses this product, nor do I know why is she still keeping it. Maybe of a sentimental value, or a gift from some guy who is certainly not my dad? (>'.'<)
