Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous blush from Lotus Herbals Purestay range – Long lasting blusher in shade Rose Kiss.
Price : Rs 595 for 6 g
What Lotus Herbals says about the Product :
This Preservative free all day blusher gives cheeks a radiant, sheer and natural glow. This silky long wearing formula delivers soft, smooth skin without smudging and flaking. Feel the PURITY all day long.
My take on the Product
The blush comes in a onion pink color compact that comes with a satin pouch. The packaging has a heavy, luxurious feel to it and the brush contained with it is quite soft and non-scratchy. In fact the brush reminds me of the brush that comes with Shiseido blushes – its go the same flat fluffy shape and soft bristles.
The blush has a fairly smooth texture and excellent color pay off. For soft color, one swipe is enough and 2 swipes add a little more intensity. There is no fall out or powderiness in the texture. It is fairly easy to blend and true to its claim, does deliver an excellent staying power of 8+ hours. The blush pigments are slightly staining which may attribute to its staying power. On the downside, if you have acne marks or blemishes or any dry skin, they may get slightly enhanced if you do not use a concealer/foundation to create an even base. The shade contains shimmer but its very fine and very evenly distributed. It did not highlight my pores or imperfections that shimmery blushes may do sometimes. Overall, i think the formula is excellent excellent for the staining pigments.
Rose Kiss is a gorgeous deep peachy pink shade with gold shimmer. The color looks warmer in the pan – leaning almost towards orange but on the skin, its looks like a warm coral pink. I find the shade very flattering, it adds a youthful glow to the face and is pigmented enough to show up well on deeper skin tones. If you’re looking for a brightening blush that perks up your face, this is a great pick! Highly recommended!
Shades : The range has 3 other shades apart from Rose Kiss – a soft orange, a cool rose pink and a soft nude pink. The range is limited but I think the all the shades are quite nice.

The NOT-SO-GOOD about Lotus Herbals Purestay Blusher Rose Kiss :
- Mildly staining pigments – may enhance spots/pigmentation/redness
Lotus Herbals Purestay Blusher Rose Kiss is a lovely deep peachy pink containing gold shimmer that gives a fresh, youthful look to the face. The formula is nearly flawless – smooth texture, excellent color pay off and long wear time. I love the fact that the shimmer is uniformly distributed and very very fine – it doesn’t enhance pores at all. The only con I see is that the pigment is mildly staining so if you don’t wear a good coverage foundation underneath, the pigment stains scars/blemishes a bit drawing attention.
Rating : 4.5/5
