What: Robin tries to recapture her youthful glow with Maybelline’s new Mineral Power Naturally Luminous Blush in Gentle Pink, $7.99.
The Lowdown: Mineral makeup seems to be the new way of thinking for many cosmetic companies. Wet ‘n Wild, Revlon, e.l.f. and Almay are just some of the names going au mineral. Not to mention Maybelline, who now offers a bevy of beautiful pink blushes. Having chosen Gentle Pink, the brightest shade of the lot, I was worried it would look too clownish. The blush, which you must tap upside down before unscrewing the cap, empties through the slotted holes of the container, and allows you to tap your blush brush in it for a modest amount—the minerals are fairly concentrated in color, so you don’t need a lot. Upon application, I noticed this shade gave me a naturally flushed look, and stayed on throughout the day. It also has a light consistency and makes you look like you hardly have anything on your skin at all.
Yea or Nay: Yea. This is a great new must-have for any pink blush fan.
Buy It: @ Wal-Mart.
