Collection 2000 Cheek Tint
What is it?
Some liquid cream blusher.
This is blusher but in cream form, it has light refective particles that make the cheek glisten and radiate, and the mixture also contains vitamin E.
What do I think?
I can't remember why I bought this, as I don't really ever use cream blusher anymore. I never really do because I find that crème blushers are usually quite concentrated and are quite difficult to blend properly and I am always worried that I'm going to end up like some theatrical pantomime doll. I must have got this from a promotion or something, I've had this for a good few years and have just dug out of one of my drawers when I was cleaning it out!
The blusher comes in a very small 10ml tube and it's just a case of squeezing a little bit out to apply onto your cheeks. The consistency is a little grainy, I think this is from the glitter ot the 'light reflective particles' as they like to call them, that has been mixed in there so that it gives some kind of radiating shiny look. I am always careful not to apply too much of this as I know it's very easy to apply too much even when you think you have put on very little. The cream does appear very concentrated and after applying just a small seed sized amount onto my face, the effect is not really as I had hoped. When you apply too little, there really isn't much colour in it, it is easy to blend in, bu after a lot of patting and rubbing. There is definitely a lot of glistening.
When I try to apply more, to get more colour on, you get more glitter, and the more there is of it, it becomes a bit more difficult to blend in and also the layer of glistening coating is also more prominent on my face. This probably more suitable for younger girls, preparing for a night out at the disco, not really appropriate for those who need to go into work, and this goes the same for the college Saturday girls...
It costs about £2.49 and it looks so appealing for that little tube, and it does look as if its ready to be used in some art project - the colour looks very rich when you squeeze it out from the tube, but very thin in colour when you apply it to the face...
Really not too sure or keen on this one...
Thanks for reading.
Collection 2000 has recently become one of my favourite make up brands, as it offers affordable, good quality make up, an essential for me as a poor student!! This is a product I bought a while ago, but it's lasted a long time and I do like it better than a lot of the other blushers I have tried over recent years. Sadly, I think it's been discontinued as I haven't been able to find it in my local Boots. They do have a similar product, according to their website, called 'The Cheek Of It'.
A little tube, it has the 'Collection 2000' band at the top of the tube, which is clear for the rest of that. The 'lid', as the tube is upside down, is silver and you just unscrew it and then squeeze a small amount out to stain your cheeks using your finger.
The tube is 10ml, contains vitamin E and is fragrance free. You don't need much product, as the colour is strong and this can be an issue as it's easy to squeeze out too much. The cheek tint lasts all day and is a good consistency: quite light.
