Purely Pro Cosmetics Says: Our soft blush powder comes in a special light texture which glides on smoothly and evenly. The sheer formula is lightweight and highly pigmented providing the perfect product to enhance the cheek bones and create contours. Purest ingredients. Long-lasting. Highly-pigmented. Professional quality. Not tested on animals.
How to use: To apply, swirl your brush across the surface of the blush and then tap lightly to dust off excess pigment. Lightly apply the blush from mid cheek to temple - tracing the cheekbone for a contoured look. Else smile and apply it to the apples of your cheeks for a more youthful look. If you're not a blush user and don't have a brush, don't worry -your fingers, if used gently, can create an equally magical effect. Just make sure - you blend, blend, blend till you get the right amount of pigment.

My Opinion: - Continuing with my reviews, here is a pink-coraly blush with shimmers as I have realized that I have not reviewed a blush in a long time. This is Purely Pro Blush in the shade Strawberry but nothing in it that matches the name. It's a warm shade that will suit most Indian Skin Tones. The blush looks pink with coral undertones from some angles and coral with pink undertones from some angles. Might be my eyes or brain or both are gone but every time I look at the blush it looks different all the time...God help me!!!! I received this blush in my February Vellvette Box along with all my blogger friends. Ok now coming to the packaging of this blush, it looks very cheap, silver-grey plastic round tub with see through screw-on plastic lid. Easy to carry around and travel-friendly.
It has a chemical smell to it, but it is almost non-existent. The texture of this blush is soft but not chalky. It is infused with very finely milled gold shimmed which is not much dominant once applied. It is this gold shimmer that adds warmth to this shade. This blush is decently pigmented but I cannot call it a very pigmented blush. The color adds a fresh warm glow to my face which I love. It stays on for 4-5 hours at the most after which it fades off but does not disappear altogether from my face. This blush does not oxidize on my oily skin and stays color true.
The finely milled gold shimmer is gone after application, it just leaves behind a warm pearly glow on my cheeks. I have to touch up after lunch and it looks fresh again. This blush is easy to blend and does not give that blotchy look and fades off evenly. The swatches as you can see are very different from the blush in the pan. Under natural as well as artificial lighting, the blush looks much pink than it actually is. But on my cheeks it does show its true coraly-pinky color. The blush does not irritate my skin and also it never broke me out. Its not a very popular brand in India and its availability and price are big disadvantages. But ofcourse its only available at Vellvette.com and is expensive.

I rate Purely Pro Blush in Strawberry 4 out of 5. It is one pretty and unique shade in my collection. I haven't seen another shade from any brand that would make a dupe of it. A must have shade in your stash of blushes if you love corals. It is one of the few great samples that Vellvette has sent me. Truly love the shade!!!
