Barry M Blusher in Raspberry
Advantages: Gives great coverage, easy to blend of you slowly build the colour up
Disadvantages: Very dark shade, hard to blend if you go mad and apply too much of it
When it comes to blusher it is something that I own rather a few of as I rely on them to emphasis my cheekbones and give my pale skin a bit of colour or I cant tend to look a bit washed out looking.
I bought this rather a long time ago in Superdrug for £4.59 which I thought was a great price for a Barry M product and the ones I'd had in the past were really good, long lasting and of great quality.
The packaging of this is rather simple. The blusher is oblong in shape and set into black plastic with a clear plastic flip top to open lid to the top of it and on that we are told what it is and who it is by and then on the under side we are told what it is, the colour is stated (Raspberry) and contact details for Barry M are listed. Inside there is small black blusher brush provided but no mirror.
The Blusher Itself:
The shade of this is a nice, deep berry red and rather dark. It is easy to apply but I do find the little brush a little fiddly to use and that it saturates to much powder into one small area for my liking so I don't use it and use my usual trusty large blusher brush instead to get a better more even coverage.
I find with this one sweep is very much enough per cheek as it is such a dark and richly pigmented colour. Its easy to blend as long as you only apply a small amount at a time and gives a smooth finish though use too much of this and it really is very dark and tougher to blend!
It contains no glitter and added vitamin E and is meant to last 8 hours on the cheeks once applied, well it does and in fact I think this stays on my skin longer than that and more like 10 ours with no smudging or colour fade at all.
It isn't shimmery but does give a bit of a light reflecting finish and when it comes to removing it, it is simply and easily removed with my usual make up removing routine and it has never caused me skin agitations at all.
I think the quality of this is superb, that a little of it goes a very long way indeed and my only bickers with this is that the shade is so dark and that the compact is a bit cheap looking! Other than than if your happy with the colour of this you wont be disappointed with it I'm sure!
Available from all good Chemists, I bought mine in Superdrug and at the time it was on offer on a buy one get one free deal so do look out for offers!
Summary: Great quality, long lasting on and a great price for the amount you get of it!
