I was talking to a friend of mine from the US and she was astounded to learn that the brand isn’t available in Singapore anymore.

CoverGirl Instant Cheekbones Contouring BlushRefined Rose
This little palette has been sitting on Mom’s dresser for YEARS! I have no idea how many, but it has been there for as long as I remember. Most probably close to 15 years?! (」゚ロ゚)」 Kindly let me know if you have any leads, yah?

You gotta admit, the colors still look lovely after all these years, though I would never, ever let it touch my face.

The pigments are swatched once and the payoff is incredible. They impart a gentle glow on my cheeks arm and shows up without being too obvious. I particularly love the one on the far right, it looks like soft velvet!! The middle one is the epitome of a healthy glow, whereas the first one on the left is too dark for my skin tone.

I headed over to CoverGirl’s website and found that this blush is still available! Although the packaging looks similar, with a good change of palette, the colors look a whole lot lighter. Or maybe Mum’s blushes are far too ancient and have oxidized, hence they look darker??

Somehow I need to place a disclaimer that my dear mother no longer uses this product, nor do I know why is she still keeping it. Maybe of a sentimental value, or a gift from some guy who is certainly not my dad? (>’.'<)
