Advantages: Lovely colour payoff, lasts all day
Disadvantages: Not as readily avaliable
I had been after a peachy pink blush with a little bit of gold shimmer running through it for quite some time. One that would be a good dupe for the very popular Nars Orgasm blush and after not being able to get my hands on the Sleek Rose Gold blush (which I am told is very good) I came across this in Boots when I was browsing on my lunch break as you do.
I noticed that all the myfacecosmetics had 75% off and only very few products remained that looked like they hadn't been played with by toddlers. The blusher was originally £9.99 which I would have bypassed if I had seen it at full price but for under £2.50 it was worth a try.
All the myfacecosmetics have three different categories for different skin tones, fair, medium and dark which I thought was a really good idea and not one that I had seen before on "high street" makeup brands. It does help a little although I have fair skin the blush I picked up in shade "Costa Del Soul" is supposedly aimed towards people with medium toned skin although I think with things like blush you can make the majority work for all skin tones.
The packaging of the product is a large silver rectangular mirrored compact. The outside does have quite a thick clear plastic over the top which is great so I don't have to worry about shards of mirror breaking into my handbag and it seems pretty robust from being lugged around in my bag. The inside has a pretty large mirror for a product this size and it also contained a blusher brush which I haven't used as it is
one of the flat very small ones that I find can make blusher streak.
The product itself is very smooth, silky and soft. I find that I don't have to swirl my brush around in it too many times to pick up the right amount of product, and it isn't too soft that I have far too much product. The shade of this is really beautiful and at first I was slightly worried that the gold shimmer running through would make me look like my makeup had been applied by a 5 year old but as it is so finely milled it just adds a nice subtle glow. I find that you can really build the colour up if you prefer but I just use a very light amount and I find that this lasts me all day.
I actually went back into Boots to see if they had stocked up on any more of the blushers in other colours with the 75% off but unfortunately the stand has now disappeared ready to be replaced with something else. You can still buy the myfacecosmetics online or it might be worth having a look in your local Boots branch to see if you can get any bargains! I really think that I would pay the original price of £9.99 as it is a really lovely blusher and I have been using it for quite some time and not even made a dent in it yet.
Summary: A great blush for a bargain price!
