some days you just make me blush.
Review time! In a recent haul post from Born Pretty, I showed off a blush palette that I ordered. Let me just tell you, it was love at first swatch. When I ordered this blush palette, I didn't exactly have high expectations. I mean, the entire set was $9! For such a low price, my only goal was to try out a few new shades. Then the palette arrived....and I fell head over heels for it. Why? Intense pigmentation, a wide range of colours, some totally unique shades, and a seriously silky texture.
I. Was. Shocked. Truly, I didn't expect the quality as high as it is. I mean, it's not NARS but it's pretty darn good! This was more of an I'll give it a whirl kind of purchase. Well, I am certainly glad that I did. Ready to find out more? Here goes.
Let's start with the packaging. It came in a surprisingly sturdy black case. Unfortunately, the case collects fingerprints like nothing else. It's not a huge deal, but it can be a little annoying. I hate when my makeup looks messy. The colours themselves, though, were gorgeous. There was a really nice variety - bright pinks, fuchsia, berry, orange, baby pink, and more. If you couldn't tell already, this is a set for someone who likes to be a little adventurous with their blush.
My favourite shade is either: the fourth one in on the top row or the fourth one on the bottom row. The first is a bright tangerine shade while the other is a dramatic pink. Both are gorgeous - but should probably be used sparingly.
These swatches will help you get a better feel for the colours....and help you pick out your own favourite!
And here is a picture of this blush palette in action:
As you can tell, I kind of love this set. There are so many gorgeous colours to play with! I am definitely a fan.
What do you think of these blush shades? Which one is your favourite?
