If it’s not thanks to Kamsiah who gifted me with a few ZA cosmetics last year, I wouldn’t have found my love for ZA cosmetics especially the blush. I’ve only started to dig into my blush collection one by one end of last year. Looks like my philosophy to open a new blush after finishing one is thrown out of the window 😀 . This ZA Cheeks Groovy #02 Strawberry Pink was hidden in between palette so I’m always missing it. One fine morning I thought “ahhh haaa! Where’s my ZA blush?”. It doesn’t took me long to like this blush.
I’m a loyal user of pink blushes. You have no idea how long it takes for me to finally accept coral blush. Yea I was afraid that I’ll turn into oompa loompa lol. No matter what. I’m all about pink blush.
ZA Cheeks Groovy is packaged in a black plastic casing. It’s light on hand, looks alright and definitely not those cheap plastic material. I’ve not drop the blush on the floor yet *touch wood* so I can’t tell you if this will break or whatsoever 😛 . I do hope it doesn’t. I like this one! It take a bit of strength to pry the casing open and closes up with a loud click sound.
ZA Cheeks Groovy #02 Strawberry Pink is of course a pink blush, which I am so sure that the shade was screaming for my name. It’s weird that now (it’s night time as I was composing this review) the blush somehow looked a bit of coral. In the morning? Oh yeah it’s definitely a strawberry pink alright. Some blush is soft to touch and on the pan, while some is hard. This ZA Cheeks Groovy #02 Strawberry Pink is definitely a sturdy hard blush on pan. This means minimal fallout.
Most people said they don’t give a darn on the mini brush included right? Well I do! I always appreciate small little thing like this brush for example. Think about it. If the brush wasn’t included, people complain there’s no brush. If there’s a brush included, people complain that it’s not a good quality brush. The main thing here is the blush, not the brush. The brush included is for your convenient, which most people toss it away anyway. Although I no longer rely on the mini brush included to apply my blush, I on the other hand collect all these mini brush and keep it aside. You’ll never know when you’ll need it 😀
Okay, enough rambling on the mini brush 😛 . Let’s get back to the brush. You can stop tossing the brush away because let me tell you the brush bristle is oh-so-soft. Not a bad one. This is a keeper.
The shade of the blush stays true to it’s shade name – Strawberry Pink. It’s a sweet pink which will compliment well any skin color. I have fair skin and I can already foresee how this shade will look like on me. This shade will give anyone a soft flush of pink on the cheek 🙂
Groovy Cheeks comes in five shades. Four shades for the cheek namely 01 Glowing Pink, 02 Strawberry Pink, 03 Pink Petal and 04 Apricot Pink while one shade, which is 05 June Bright is a highlighter.
Here’s how ZA Cheeks Groovy #02 Strawberry Pink looks like on me. I usually apply more blush as I contour my cheek bone before that. And of course I like how my face is with more blush haha 😀
The blush lasted whole day on my oily face but the color faded off slightly, leaving me with a hint of blush on comparing with how pink my cheek is before I left the house. This is quite a good blush to add into any blush collection, it’s also cheaper to collect the whole Cheeks Groovy collection too. My advise is layer on more blush or you can toss this blush into your makeup pouch and touch up when needed 😉
