Perfect Handbag Blushes: Maybelline Angelfit Blushes


Absolutely loving these Maybelline Angelfit Blushes in Peachy Sweetie & Velvet Apricot.

I needed some compactly packed blushes that I can tote around in my handbag for touch-ups and these just fit the bill.



One is pinky-peach and goes with everything, and the other is an apricot shade for coral/peach & gold makeup days.



The cute soft angled brushes deserve a mention too.  They're very well-made and blend the blushes beautifully. And YAY! for the added mirrors.



Swatches....


Peachy Sweetie & Velvet Apricot

The finish is a tad shimmery, but the shimmer isn't the chunky kinds. They just give you a very subtle glow.



For about Rs.359, I think these are some of Maybelline's best.

P.S: The Angelfit range is Asia exclusive. So I doubt that they'll launch them in India, but we can only hope.....
