      Good blush for a regular make up user

      Recently I have acquired a need to use a blush here and there and although for my needs I usually pick up the cheapest sore brands I do here and there treat myself with something a bit more pricey... I never was to keen on spending too much on make up so a blush that goes at £4.49 on Amazon.co.uk at the time of writing and a bit more at time of writing was still acceptable.

      I bought the Delicious rosewood shade last summer and am using it still (you can see how often I use this, although I do use the cheaper ones too). The colour is really great, it is a subtle light red (maybe more orange) and pink mixture the last colour being the main one.

      It comes in a box that has, besides the blush, a brush and a continent mirror. This is a really good move from L'Oreal since I always forget my mirror at home and this one serves me well.

      The box is very sturdy and safe, it won't pop open by itself in your purse. The brush is very soft and effective, it does a great job at applying the blush, it is not one of the "cheap" ones. The mirror is of good quality too, it won't distort your face, you see it clearly as it is, no magnification.

      It is easy to apply, I am not a "pro" when it comes to make up but I have to say I did not have any problems using this one, it spreads evenly and the colour is very subtle. It is durable too, if I apply it in the morning my cheeks will have a rosy look on them even in the afternoon. The colour blends with your natural colour (or foundation) on the edges so it does have a natural look.

      The blush also has a subtle pleasant smell to it and after a year the scent is still present.

      As an amateur make up user I must say I am really satisfied with this one and will be buying something similar in the future, true my aim might be a more "mature" brownish shade. I have seen they have a decent selection of these in the shops (or at least similar from this brand) plus they are keen on releasing the "special edition ones" so I sure will be grabbing one in the near future. I can only compare it to the cheap ones though...

      Happy with the colour and this is an excellent size. On the occasions I try and go heavy with it, it can look cakey but as long as I use it for a light sweep/more natural effect it works well. In summer I use this with a bronzer and am happy

      A well-designed blusher

      This is a very dinky little blush compact from L'Oreal, which I was lucky enough to pick up for a pound or two in a bargain basket in Boots some time ago. I usually prefer cream blushers, as I find them much easier to blend and more natural looking, but at such a low price I was willing to give this a try! The Blush Delicieux comes in a range of different shades, and the one I have is called Hint of Rose.

      The compact is a square shape measuring about 5 square cm. It's very simple looking - the top is a nice dusky pink colour, while the base is an off white. The lettering on the front simply says L'OREAL PARIS. The top then flips up to reveal a mirror inside the top of the lid, and the compact blusher powder in the base. Also included is a flat, square-shaped brush which fits perfectly within the compact. I am accustomed to using big, round blusher brushes so I wasn't sure about this strange little one!

      The colour of the blush powder is almost identical to the colour of the lid, but a little bit lighter and with tiny flecks of gold as well. It is a nice looking colour, and not too in-your-face! The little brush applicator was quite a revelation. Although it's flat, it is quite wide so it is easy to sweep onto the compacted powder, and then over the cheekbones.

      I have light olive toned skin, and I am happy to report that this blusher was a good colour for my skin tone. Not too bright or pink, it is quite a subtle, peachy toned blush, and the powder once on the brush is very soft and fine. The brush distributes the blusher very evenly, which helps one avoid the Ronald McDonald look. Despite the small gold particles, this doesn't make the face look glittery or shimmery - but instead gives the cheeks a nice healthy glow. It also has good staying power - if I put this on in the morning, I would certainly reapply it again if I was off out in the evening, but otherwise I probably wouldn't feel the need to keep topping up.

      Overall this is a really nice little blush compact and is the perfect size to fit in any bag or purse. It's ideal having the blush powder, brush and mirror in such a small compact. The blush gives the face a lovely healthy glow without looking unnatural. However, I do prefer my Maybelline blush mousse as it's just a little easier and quicker to apply.

      You can still buy this online for around the £4 mark, which I think this is about right for a good product that will last a long time.

        Disadvantages

        Perfect for that English Rose look!

        L'Oreal Blush Delicieux Mat was found in the sale dump bin at Tesco several weeks ago, priced at £1.50. I have no brand loyalty when it comes to make-up, and am not one to pass up a bargain (Have previously seen it priced for around £7). I am not a huge fan of blush but my goal was to put together a staple make up kit for all occasions and the cheaper I could do this, the better. (Id also thrown all my old makeup away the night before and had a big even the next day!)

        A close friend has sworn by this blush for a while now and it always looked so great on her skin, which is of a similar, if not paler tone to my own. Therefore, into the shopping basket it went.

        I adore the packaging, a solid plastic that has been thrown around my bag ad bathroom floor and still (so far!) survived all knocks. The mirror on the inside of the compact lid is of a fair size with slight magnification (have been able to use said mirror when plucking my eyebrows). The compact is of a great size for even the smallest of 'night out' clutches. The brush that comes with the product is by far, one of my favorite applicators. It is not often that I am able to keep the applicator that comes with things; they have a tendency to fall apart after only a short life span. This brush, however is ideal. The bristles are soft and give a nice, even application. The only downside is it tends to gather a little too much blush on the brush, but a quick dab on the back of the hand, side of the compact or a blow on the brush solves this - somewhat.

        The colour, as pale as it is 'supposed' to be, (bought in shade 103 Sandalwood Veil) tends to go on quite bright, even with a small, light application. My solution to this is to go over the blushed area with the dump brush to thin it out slightly and calm to colour down. The powder seems to last quite a while which is good, but my current pressed powder requires a few re-applications, so that gradually removes the blush, which then has to be reapplied.

        The product also says that it contains vitamin C - so to me, that is an added bonus, though I have not noticed it making much difference to my skin.

        For a haphazard, cheap buy, it was a good one and I am impressed with the product so far. I love how versatile it is, as it also makes a great eye shadow. For a fairer complexion, it really gives that, 'English Rose' look that I adore.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Initially works well but after a few weeks breaks into tiny pieces

        I have used this L'Oreal blusher for over a year now. Being Olive skin the "sandlewood" shade really compliments my skin tone; giving me a slightly brown deep pink blush on my cheeks. But all is not great, despite being a really good match to my skin the way this product is packaged leaves a lot to be desired and me on the look out for an alternative blusher

        The concept is great, neat and tidy: each bulsher comes in a plastic square compact container with small (but does the job) mirror, the blusher and a small brush, compared to other brushes which come with compacts this one is quite good, soft and applys the blush quite well. Getting into it can be the tricky part: its quite fiddley, theres not much leaverage and if youve got arthritis youve got no chance.

        After using the product for a couple of weeks is when the real problem sets in. As the blush becomes more used and an indenation is formed in the solid block blush, the coloured blush then becomes weakend and as I have experienced on many occasions: breaks up into tiny little pieces. This then causes problems when you open the pack and the bits fly every where and then when you want to use the brush to apply there is far too much powder caught up in the brush (which is not a good look).

        It took me a long time to find this perfect colour match blush but after buying and breaking about six of them im going to have to look for an alternative. Priced around £6.99 its just impracticle to keep buying for the couple of weeks when it works great.

        this blush isn't right for my skin, it goes on blotchy and patchy no matter what i try

        I bought one of these L'Oreal Blush Delicieux blushes in a mauve colour. These bushes are currently being sold for £6.99 and I think I've seen them in 3 shades (though it is possible that there are more). I think they come in a peach, pink and mauve.
        The blush comes in a coloured compact, the colour of the compact is the same of the blusher itself, this makes it easier to find in your make up bag, especially if you have loads of make up to rummage through. There's a mirror in the top half of the compact, then there's the blush in pressed powder form with a little brush of what feels like is made of synthetic hairs.
        The brush itself is not that good, I keep getting streaky effects from it and it's not that soft so I'd recommend trying to apply this blush with a better quality brush.
        The blush itself doesn't apply as smoothly as I'd like it to, I just don't get a nice smooth and even effect, even with my expensive MAC brush. It looks a bit pearly on, but due to the uneven steaks and hard to blend formula, I just can't make this look as good as some of my MAC and Urban Decay blushes.
        I'm pretty disappointed with this blush, I'm not sure if I'd be able to make it look good on me, I've tried applying it over liquid, then over powder foundation, I've tried using extra face powder and even on bare skin... I've tried it with all my make up brushes and still no good results. I think I might end up giving this away as it's just no good for me. Maybe it would work ok with others but I've tried pretty much everything and it looks uneven, like my 5 year old niece has been trying to paint it on me.

          good packaging but dissapointed with product

          I love L'oreal and always use their mascaras but I have been rather disapointed with this product. I do wonder if it is just the colour I have chosen but I find it very difficult to apply and feel it looks a bit 'cakey'. I think this product is better for people who dont wear foundation because it does appear to apply better on naked skin although advertised as to go over foundation and powder.I do wear foundation and find it applies blotchy and it doesnt matter how hard i try it always looks like ive put too much on. it is described as a cream powder which to be fair it is.It is advertised as having a subtle fruity fragrance it just smells like make up to me.There is a good point it comes in great packaging with a mirror and you can safely put it in your handbag without the worry of it spilling or coming open.this is just aswel as Im afraid it will probably stay at the bottem of my make up bag until I chuck it out.

            a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. a. In December last year I bought myself my first blush in ages. I?m not the biggest make-up wearer because I?m allergic to scented products and that narrows your choices a lot, but with my wedding day looming over me in January I figured I had to look extra good. After a fun time browsing and trying every sample in the shop I settled on L?Oreal?s ?Blush delicieux? Golden Apricot. The packing says it comes with added vitamin C for ?a healthy, radiant glow!? I?m not so sure that wiping powdered vitamin C on your face actually is worth anything, but I liked the colour and the scent was heavenly. It not only was a soft apricot colour, it was scented gently apricot as well. Delicious, or "delicieux" as the name states! Plus, my wedding dress was cream with peach roses so the blush fitted my colour scheme perfectly. Using the product. Once out of it?s wrapper you have a small flat container about one inch square holding the hard-packed powder, brush a teeny mirror. It's like a teeny weeny compact. I do find the lid tricky to open. It's quite tight and not much of an opening to get your fingernail under to lever the lid off, but the small neat design does make it easy to take with you in a handbag and the tight clip lid means it's not going to burst open. This has it's advantages as I've often had eye shadows burst open in travel bags and handbags and the mess isn't easy to clean out. Once opened the apricot scent was quite strong and very pleasant. I?ve had it almost a year now and the smell is faint, but still there. Inside is a wide soft brush the same dimensions as the container. The hard-packed powder below fluffs onto the brush easily and goes on very smooth and light. It?s easy to blend and feels good. It's a translucent powder that doesn't overpower and it's got a slight shimmer. It lasted well for my wh
            ole wedding day (got video evidence to prove it!) and I?ve used a few times since as an eye shadow as well. This was during a hot rainy-steamy South African summer so I can vouch that it doesn't disappear if you perspire or get wet. Boots.com states ?New Blush Déliceux is a sheer, soft-powder blush infused with Vitamin C that will give your cheeks a healthy, radiant glow! With all-natural shades to choose from, Blush Déliceux goes on smoothly, blends easily, and allows buildable coverage ? so YOU can decide how much to glow!? The online shop lists Rosewood, Sugar Praline and Candy Cane Pink as the colours on offer this past summer. At the moment Terracotta and Golden Chestnut are the winter offers. Most of the websites are European. I did manage to get through a German one ok, they seem to be advertising Candy Cane Pink for the Christmas party look. The rest I put through Google automatic translator, but it turned them into garble. On one there were five colour choices, but the names defied translation. The two extra colours were ?zloto moreli? and ?slodycz zboz?. Personally I was very impressed and would recommend it. As I bought mine in South Africa I had to check online for UK prices. Boots.com offers it at 6.99 each yet beautyspotcosmetics.co.uk offers it at 3.49 each!! So it seems you?d be wise to shop around.
