It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher (01 Pink) Review

Super sorry for my laziness in posting reviews ): I lost my SD card, and because my camera is from 2005 or something, it can't use the new SD cards that have been released... so I'm trying to find places that ship SD cards from 2005 to me... with limited success. I know that the picture's quality is lacking, but please bear with me! As for the product... it's adorable and you get what you pay for (in a good way).
Where to get it: - $6 - $4.80 (on sale) - $6.99 - $5.62

Description: I was unable to find a decent description on any of the websites I looked at, so I'll try and write something up. It's Skin claims these blushes have vivid, long lasting color with a soft puff that makes application easy. The blush comes in 4 different shades, including an interesting Lavender color. It's part of a 'Babyface' makeup collection that aims to give its users a fresh-faced, innocent look~

Ingredients: Unable to find! Not sure how important it is in a blush anyway?

Packaging: Probably one of the top 10 cutest products on the market... and possibly one of the reasons I bought it. I was actually surprised by its size, I expected it to be bigger for some reason? It's not too small at all though, but it does live up to its 'petit' name. Unfortunately I threw away the little plastic wings packaging that the blush came with. :(

The pact itself is made of decent quality plastic- it wouldn't crack if you accidentally drop it, but anything more than that will probably result in a broken blush. The blush comes with a small and cute little puff applicator, but it's nothing special in terms of actually using it. It can make your blush look a bit uneven, but it works if you're in a pinch. :) As you can see in the description picture, the blush originally comes with a cute little design pressed into the product. Unfortunately I've used it enough so that it's been worn down, but it's a nice touch!

Scent: No scent!

Swatch: I wanted a pink-pink blush (as opposed to a more peachy pink) and this works really well in that regard. Unfortunately, it was impossible to get a decent swatch with my phone's camera + the lighting, but it's a sheer pink leaning towards a coral. Perfect for a more dolly like look imho!

Results/Coverage: If you're expecting Nars-quality pigmentation, you're looking in the wrong place. This isn't an immediately vibrant blush, as you need to build it a bit to get it to the color in the pan... but I really like that! I'm always afraid of accidentally applying too much color with my more pigmented blushes, so being able to control the application a bit more is a godsend for me.

These pictures are terrible quality, but I hope that you can see the results on my cheeks.



Can y'all see the color? If not I'll try and take better pictures, it's just really hard with this camera :c

This is not a super long lasting blush- maybe 5 hours? For the price I think that's fine though, so I have no complaints. Overall this is a really cute blush that works well if you like having control over color, but don't expect anything high quality for the price.

Conclusion: Final Score 4.8/5 
  • adorable
  • really adorable
  • buildable color
  • cheap
  • puff isn't that good
  • not super long lasting
  • doesn't live up to any of it's claims?


  1. I think the lighting is a tad dark! I prefer subtler blushes sometimes, because you can add more instead of having to remove it if it's too much. The packaging is adorable though <3

  2. The packaging does look really cute. How big is it compared to your hand?

  3. I love the packaging and the cute face on it. I'd be interested in the size, too. Unfortunately it isn't lasting long . :(
