Review: Catrice Revoltaire LE Ombre Blush in C01 Color Bomb

Hi guys!
Today I finally have a review for you guys, about Catrice's Ombre Blush from their Revoltaire LE. Let's see how I like it!
Information:
  • part of the current Catrice Revoltaire LE
  • it's called Powder Blush C01 Color Bomb
  • the color is a gradient which goes from a light peach to a dark peach-toned pink
  • it has a very fine shimmer
  • it contains 8g
  • it costs 3.95 Euros
Positives:
  • really gorgeous design (ombre and packaging)
  • nice color
  • really fine and pretty shimmer
  • nice for every day, you don't overblush that easily
  • easy to apply with a brush
  • price is okay

    all of the colors mixed together
    the darkest part of the blush
Negatives:
  • it's pressed quite hard, that means you have to scrape a little to get enough product
  • it's limited
  • it's not as special as it looks, you can achieve the look with a lot of other blushes

    After all, I do like this blush. But as you can tell from the last negative point I wrote, it's not that special. Of course, it looks super duper pretty and I enjoy using it, but to be honest, I don't think it's worth all of the hype it's getting. So, don't be sad if you don't get it, there are other blushes out there that are just as pretty :) To me it's so popular because of the design, not because of the product itself.
    What do you think of it?
    xoxo, Misch

    2. This gradient thing makes it really cool but, as you said, it doesn't seem to be a unique shade - I guess Catrice has already offered a similar one in the Floralista or in the permanent line...?

      1. exactly :)
        well, I have the Floralista blush here and could make a comparison if you're interested! as far as the permanent line in concerned, I have no idea since I don't own a permanent blush, but I could have a look at it the next time I'm at the drugstore!

      2. I don't own any blush from Catrice, I was just guessing from what I remembered but a comparison would be interesting :)
