As with all Silk Naturals orders, mine came with a free sample. My most recent order arrived with a sample of their Sheer Blush in VIP. The Sheer Blushes are available exclusively on the Silk Naturals Website and retail for $6.50 (0.24 oz).
Silk Naturals formulates is formulated without parabens, talc, nano particles, petroleum products, powdered starches, and bismuth oxychloride. The brand is Cruelty-Free, and many of their Sheer Blushes are Vegan, including VIP.
Let's get in to the review!
Silk Naturals claims:
VIP is a nude brown blush with layers of shifting red, purple, and gold interference pigments. It's multi-faceted, and gorgeous!
As this product is a sample size, I do not have the full size to judge. The full size is packaged in a plastic jar with a screw off top and sifter to dispense the product.
There is nothing fancy about the packaging, but it works and my current stash of Silk Naturals products haven't broken or fallen apart. The size is perfect for storage, but not the most travel friendly.
The Sheer Blush is a loose powder formula with a consistency that is not powdery or chalky.
VIP is a neutral rose gold with red and purple shimmer reflects. It has a shimmer finish but does not appear glittery on the face. The color would flatter all skin tones, but would appear more as a highlighter on dark to deep skin tones.
The color was the perfect shade to double as a blush and bronzer, so if you love those types of complexion products, and you have a fair to light skin tone, you would love VIP.
As the name suggests, the blush has a sheer to light pigmentation. The swatches below show just how pigmented the color is with a finger, but can easily be sheered out for a softer appearance.
The product has no scent or smell.
This blush applies best with a semi dense brush. My favorite is the It Cosmetics 227 Blush Brush.
The color paired nicely with other complexion products and did not disturb the foundation underneath. When applied with a brush, the color sheers out but does not become patchy or splotchy.
The blush wore well for 7 hours before starting to fade.

The Sheer Blush formula offers a very buildable and easy to apply formula with a large variety of shades to choose from. The consistency is not too thin and does not apply patchy or uneven. VIP is a very universally flattering shade for all skin tones. At a wallet friendly price, a clean list of ingredients, and an amazing formula, I highly recommend this shade from the Sheer Blush line.
