Starting off with the packaging, it is lovely to say the least. There is something very appealing about the way the pan looks. It comes in an outer silver paper carton packaging which has all the information about the product. There are 3 shades packed in one which is good and bad at the same time. Good because you get options and the liberty of mixing and matching and bad because the placement of the shades require special attention while working with.
The texture of the blush is smooth and it glides easily both on bare skin and over base makeup. It shows up like crazy on the skin, thanks to the unbelievable pigmentation of the blush. It blends easily on the skin without much effort. One swipe gives enough color on the cheeks so it is advisable to go slow with this, you can always build up the color. There is no chalky feel to the blush; it is easy to work with and does not form up powder-layer on the pan like most blushes. Less is more with this blush, so it is going to last very long.

So I bought the shade 002 coral. It's a deep orange blush, a light peach highlighter and an orcher ish bronzer. It is powder based with shimmer, the good but definitely not subtle kind.
Now the blush is very pigmented so I advise to take a little bit at first and then build it slowly. I do not use the highlight and bronze separately because the pan is made in such a way that a proper distinct section is not made so I found it difficult to pick just the right shades, the blush gets picked irrespective.
The staying power is amazing, it stays for a solid 6 hours which is the longest I wore is for. The finish is like the other Colorbar blushes, a tad bit chalky but with correct blending really flattering.
If you compare the quantity with the other Colorbar blushes, it is almost double, it's also a noticibly bigger oan which is why it's price makes sense cuz the quantity is just as much.
I would however suggest people to go try it with your skin first because coral blushes do not suit all skin bases, so definitely try it on first.
All in all, a really nice blush but not something absolutely out of the world. I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5.
