      Virgin Vie is a brand I don't normally think about when it comes to makeup because it can be hard to find in shops (there are a few Vie shops but I've never seen many - you can also buy online though). It is a brand which does 'parties' though at people's houses so when I got invited to one I felt I had to buy something (because that's the nature of these events, and because I am a bit of a makeup lover!)

      At the party we were shown the products, had a giggle and a flick through the catalogue and I chose this, the blushing beauty blusher compact. It retails for £16 and it was actually one of the products we were shown on a makeover at the party.

      The blusher is in a big translucent blue plastic compact which is a bit thicker than your average. It is round and sort of domed looking on the top with a silver square with the word VIE in the middle. All in all from the outside it looks ok and a bit plain but what annoys me is the sticker on the bottom which was blue/black but all of this has scratched off to reveal silver scratches and it just looks a bit messy.

      Inside, there is a mirror like you would expect on a compact like this really. On the "flat" side (if you know what I mean!) there are 5 small domes, each about the size of a 1p piece. They are each different colours of blushery/bronzery powder. Crudely, there is a pale pink/white, a slightly darker one, a deep pink blush and a deeper, redder blush, and in the centre there is a deep bronze-y bronzer.

      You're meant to sweep over a Kabuki brush but I don't have one so I just use a standard MAC blusher brush and sweep it over the ones I feel like. Obviously as it is in the middle and I always look pasty, the bronzer on mine is the flattest but I do use the other ones too.

      I feel like the mixture of colours in this set are brill and they make it really easy to sweep a brush over and apply a nice, even and natural looking blush to your face. They don't look fake and they are just a nice level of shimmery. I think this is best for every day wear but I would just put more on for a night out etc. It isn't something I would want to take out in my bag though as it is just too bulky.

      There is also a bronzer version which has different shades of bronzer too instead of blusher bits.
