Anahilwa Blush in 04 Ajman – Review & swatches

Monday, May 07, 2012 Sara Hassan , 14 Comments

Anahilwa is one of the sub brands of Mikiyajy – a popular makeup brand in the U.A.E I believe. The brand is known for its affordability and quality. Today’s review will be focusing on a blush in 04 Ajman by Anahilwa.

Good news! Now you can purchase it from Personally Yours; an online shopping solution for Pakistani women. So if you thought your favorite brand isn't in your reach, think again! Now is your time to enjoy the best from abroad.

My thoughts
I couldn’t find the description and website for this product but I know for sure about its existence and popularity among girls in the Middle East.

Ajman is a gorgeous muted orange with accent of brown; it reminds of pumpkins. Even though I absolutely love the shade but it makes me look sick when I wear it. It’s such a tricky shade and I think if you fail to coordinate your outfit and other makeup with this shade, you will end up looking like you have jaundice.

The product has got a decent pigmentation. It’s completely matte which makes it suitable for daytime. The texture is a bit on the softer side if you touch it with your fingers but when you’re trying to pick it up with a brush, you might have to work a bit to get the required intensity. Yes, it’s sheer but buildable which is good since this gives you control. I am not too happy with the blending but it’s not that bad either. The blush stays on for up to 4-5 hours and starts to fade thereafter so it’s not so long lasting on me.

You might like it if…
  • You’re looking for an economical blush.
  • You have a thing for matte.
  • You like the texture and the fact that it’s sheer.
You might not like it if…
  • You’re skin is too oily. The product might lose it’s intensity within 4-5 hours.
  • You have a taste for very pigmented blushes.
  • The shade doesn’t compliment your skin tone.

You can purchase it from Personally Yours for PKR 800. They ship all across Pakistan.
