The Body Shop All-in-One Cheek Color comes in a round metallic silver pan with a transparent plastic lid that closes tight with a click. Over a period of time, this click lock has loosened in my blush, however, it is still tight enough to never open up on its own. The packaging is quite simple and I like it. I don't really mind the fact that a brush or mirror is missing in here because anyway I never use brushes that come with eyeshadows or blushes and prefer to use my long handle ones.

The shade 09 Truffle looks like a boring neutral, and I was skeptical about whether it would show up on my medium skin or not, however I was thrilled to see it looked so beautiful when applied. It is a warm earthy brown with a hint of pink, that makes it look very natural and beautiful on my skin. I am very scared of going overboard with blushes and prefer light neutral shades to bright bold ones, which might be difficult to control . 

The pigmentation of this blush is sheer to medium intense and  the color is buildable which gives a lot of control over application.

The texture is super fine and smooth, and it blends in oh-so-easily on the face. Over a base, it stays all day and gives me that naturally flushed cheeks look that I wouldn't mind wearing everyday. This blush is my favorite everyday blush and the most used one in my vanity.

Overall, The Body Shop All-in-One Cheek Color in Truffle is one the smoothest and easily blendable blushes I own. The color intensity is sheer to medium and is buildable in layers. It stays on me all day and there isn't really I can complain about. If you are fond of natural looking blushes, this one is a must try from The Body Shop.
