Maybelline Colorshow Blush ‘Em – Pink Cheeks

Hi there! Today’s post is about a blush I picked up at one of the Poundstores. It’s called Maybelline Colorshow Blush’em! Unfortunately this blush doesn’t have a name – and I also couldn’t find a number on the back. So I’ve just called it ‘Pink Cheeks’.

When I picked up the blush, I thought I’d be getting a lot of product for £1. However, when I opened the compact I was surprised – and disappointed. The blush pan is tiny, and the small brush that was included is useless. By the way, there was no mention of a brush being included anywhere on the compact…

But I think I shouldn’t complain because this blush was £1 only and I’m not running out of blush any time soon. In addition, I might actually be able to finish this one! 🙂

Now, how’s the product? I think this blush duo is actually decent. The pigmentation is OK – sure, it could be better, but again, I might be able to finish this one! This blush is easily blendable, and I think these pink shades are definitely suitable for pale skin tones.

This blush seems to be discontinued. But you might still find it at your local Poundland or Poundworld. I picked up a few different shades, so if this pink combo isn’t your favourite, there are other colours! 🙂

MUA MakeUp Academy Blusher Bon Bon, Candyfloss, Cupcake

Hi there! I’ve been using the same blushers for the past six months, so I thought it’s about time to try out new ones. As I love a bargain, I went with MUA. I picked the following blushers (from top to bottom): Bon Bon, Candyfloss and Cupcake.
MUA Blushers
Bon Bon is a matte dark coral that goes with anything. I think this shade would suit most skin tones and – depending on how much product you apply – most occasions.

Candyfloss is a shimmery cool pink. The shimmer is quite subtle. However, I don’t like this shade as much as I thought I would because it’s too pink for my taste.

Cupcake is a matte light brown. I like this shade because it reminds me of Bambi. 🙂 I also think this shade is subtle enough to go with heavy eye make-up.

My favourite of the three is Bon Bon, followed by Cupcake and then Candyfloss. I’m very happy with the quality of these powder blushes because they last really well on my make-up and I rarely have to touch up during the day. Priced at £1 each these MUA Blushers are great value.
