Essence Swirlpool

I have had previous success with the Essence products I have tried, so I didn’t hesitate to purchase this when I spotted it in store. Swirlpool is a beautiful blend of gold, various degrees of pink with a bit of peach, and there is shimmer throughout.

This has a very smooth texture, and blended well along my cheek bones. Pigmentation on this, however, wasn’t that great. I tried to build it up, but it is very sheer and seemed to hit a ceiling at a level that didn’t quite get to the level of color I prefer to wear. When trying to build the color up the shimmer increased to a level I didn’t like. The shimmer itself isn’t huge and obvious (when used lightly), though not quite what I would call finely milled.

Wear time was very good. I didn’t notice any premature fading, even on the 80 degree days we have been having. Overall I was disappointed in this blush, and it is my first disappointment with Essence. For very pale skin types this might be a nice blush for you, because there is no worry of going overboard. For my skin it just wasn’t the right fit.

Essence Swirlpool retails for approximately $3.99 (varies by location) and can be found wherever Essence Cosmetics are sold (I bought mine at Fred Meyer).

    The colors look much less pink on, more neutral. Really pretty and a nice price.

      Yes, much less rosy on the cheeks.
