MUA Cream Blush in Dolly

15 Jun

I’ve started branch out and start trying some different blushes, and when I saw this I though I’d give it a go as I remembered seeing lots of bloggers talking about them when they were first released.  I decided to try out the shade Dolly as it looks quite different from my other blushes.

The packaging is nothing fancy, just a plastic case with a clear flip top lid; but then at only £2 you can’t really be fussy about packaging can you?  I do like the fact the the lid is clear meaning that you can easily find it if it’s in with other products.  There are six other colours in the range, so although slightly limited there is a chance that there will be one that you like.

Dolly is a gorgeous peachy colour.  I find that it looks darker in the packaging than it does when it’s applied.  I’m still relatively new to cream blushes (this is only the second that I’ve tried so far) and compared to the Revlon Cream Blush I find that it feels thinner and is a little easier to blend if your just using your fingers.  I find that it applies really well and can be built up of you want a more stand out look.

I find that this blush last surprisingly well, especially considering the price, I find that it tends to last around 5 hours before you start to notice it fading.  I think it would last longer and have a more matte finish if you used on of MUA’s powder blushes on top – as they have corresponding powder blushes if you wish to do this.

Overall I really like this and will definitely be buying more from the MUA Cream Blush.  I’d really recommend them and being only £2 from Superdrug of the MUA website you can definitely afford to buy multiple 🙂

I’d love to hear what your thoughts are on these if you’ve tried them and any blusher recommendations you have!  I really don’t have that many, I mean 7 is not a lot right?

Sleek Makeup Blush Review – Rose Gold

10 Apr

After seeing so many good reviews of this product I knew that I had to try it out myself.  The Sleek Makeup blushers comes in a small black casing and has a mirror inside so its handy if your wanting to re-apply the blush through out the day (though I don’t feel that you’d need to do that).

The blush Rose Gold is a lovely coral/pink shade with a subtle gold shimmer running through it.  I’ve seen many bloggers say that this is a dupe for the Nars Orgasm blush, I haven’t tried that blush but  they look really similar form the pictures I’ve seen.

The blush is quite pigmented so you don’t have to use a lot of product.  I feel that it gives a nice healthy glow without looking overly shimmery/glittery.  I think this is definitely going to be one of my favourite products from spring/summer.  The Rose Gold blush last all day for me without needing to be touched up, which I love as I’m not a fan of having to constantly re-apply make-up through out the day.

Both swatches are in natural light, the second is in direct sunlight so you could clearly see the shimmer.

This blush cost £4.49 which I think is amazing considering the packaging and the fact that you get 8g of product which is quite a lot meaning it should last awhile.  It can be purchased from Superdrug or on the Sleek Makeup website.

Have you tried any Sleek Makeup blushers? Let me know what you think of them, or if you’ve used Nars Orgasm do you think that rose gold seems like a good dupe?
