IN2IT Sheer Shimmer Blush in Pink Pearl

Saturday, January 07, 2017


I had been hoping to find what could be a possible drugstore alternative to my MAC's Mineralize Blush in the shade "Dainty" which I already hit pan on. Since I'm on the mission to save money this year, I know a lot of drugstore blushes out there won't disappoint me. So I stumbled upon Watsons a few weeks ago and swatched a heck lot of blushes on my hand. I came across IN2IT blushes, I swatched them and I think I have found the one. The color is pretty similar to my MAC blush but more to the pink side and more shimmery. I was torn in two. I mean, I like the color but a little too shimmery for my liking. However, I don't want to hurt my pocket either to go to MAC store and buy the exact same one.

After tut-tutting at the aisle for a little while, I decided to get my hands on this baby. Whatever, it's cheaper and can be double as a highlighter, right? So let's jump right in!

Pretty, clear and practical packaging

Packaging 
It comes in a clear compact and I love that I'm able to see the product itself without having to open it. I love packaging like this because it's practical. Let's be real, isn't the lid look cute and pretty to y'all? I mean look at 'em flowers! I'm totally in love. On the other hand, it has a sturdy container, sleek and simple looking. A+ for the packaging.

Price and availability
I bought mine at Watsons for MYR16.90. I would say it's a reasonable price indeed for something just about perfect in a quality. IN2IT is available at most health and beauty departments in leading drugstore company such as Watsons and Guardian.


Soft texture and dome-like powder

Texture
The texture of this blush is super soft and has a great quality powder. It's very fine and applies sheerly on the cheeks which giving me the choice to build up the color. I think it's a baked powder blush although it doesn't state whether it's baked or not, but you can already tell by the appearance.

Pearlescent finish

Finish
At first, this is what concerns me the most because I have an oily skin. Meaning to say that I have to apply the product carefully on the cheeks otherwise I will look like a walking disco ball. That's not really a concern. Turns out it's actually not that bad. I get a sheen that isn't too shimmery, it's more like a pearlescent, so I don't have things sparkling like chunks of glitters on my face. That's a good news. I get a nice, subtle icy-pink glow. It looks gorgeous when it catches light. It's like a blush and highlighter in one.

Pros
  • It gives a healthy glow
  • High quality powder
  • Affordable 
  • Has a clear, sturdy and an attractive packaging 
  • Stays for more than 5 hours on my oily skin
  • Buildable and easy to blend
  • Can be double as a highlighter
  • Soft and creamy texture 
Cons
  • The container is a scratch prone 
  • Isn't paraben-free, but most drugstore makeup isn't anyway

Comparison to my MAC Mineralize blush

All in all, I'm loving this blush. It's a hit for me and I'm totally into it. I really recommend you to try this product because it's a pretty decent brand and the quality is just about perfect. However, if you are a fan of matte, pigmented blush, then this isn't for you. This blush acts more like a colored highlighter to me. It gives a nice wash of color along with it without being too overwhelming yet gives a healthy glow that could be achieved in a highlighter.
My rating: 4 out of 5
I really hope you enjoyed this post and find it very helpful! Let me know your favorite blush and if you've ever tried any product from this brand.
