AMW Reviews: Avon Ideal Luminous Blush in Peach

Who among our readers can still remember the differences of Go, Grow and Glow foods?  
*Laughs*  The reason for such topic is because I remembered having the easiest time to memorize "Glow" Foods!  Why?  Well, there must be the love for inner glow as young as elementary that I didn't know!

"Glow Foods", by the way, if you don't mind me getting all nerdy and proud are foods rich in vitamins and minerals.  These are the types of food that makes us feel and look beautiful!  

Speaking about "glow", Avon came up with a blush called Ideal Luminous!  As the name states, this product were expected by yours truly to give me the nice glow I need especially these days that I'm feeling physically crappy! :)


 The shade I got is called "Peach"

Pros
  • Housed in a nice compact with good quality mirror.
  • Comes with a free blush brush.
  • The luminous blush has good pigmentation.  
  • Appears very natural and has a nice glow without the obvious sparkles.
  • Can get away without using any face highlighters.
 Cons
  • The powder can get a bit too messy which isn't a huge deal.
  • Limited shades available.
Overall
Good pigmentation.  Easy to apply.  Works for most skin types.

Tips
  • Use the brush that comes with the compact for retouch.
  • Wipe off excess powder to prevent case from getting messy.
  • For a more natural look: Use a regular powder or blush brush and apply on apples of your cheeks.
  • For a little bit of contouring: Use an angled blush brush or use the brush that comes with the product for a defined look.
  • To keep blush color for the whole day, use a similar shade cream blush underneath.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

Anyone looking for natural-looking blush that gives a nice glow!

The free brush isn't the best of quality but it's not bad as well! I enjoy using this for quick touch-ups.

The shade Peach has millions of nice sparkles that are almost invisible upon application but gives a nice "sheen" on the area that was applied.

 The messy powder that needs to be cleaned after every use.

Applied on clean face with just a tiny amount of face powder underneath.
A little is enough for people who have fair and medium skin.  Dark skinned individuals may need to apply more for the color to show up even better.
