FOTD + MUA Blush Review

I've learnt a few lessons make up wise today first of all why haven't I used a duo fibre / stipple brush to apply my foundation before, secondly why are duo fibre brushes so hard to clean and thirdly I am cack handed when it comes to applying eyeliner lol Hmm in the process of learning these lessons I created this make up look, thick lined olive green eyes, pink blush and pink lipstick :) It took my about 20 pictures to get my full face of the day pic today - I was having one of those days, the lighting was woeful - too dark or too bright, and my facial palsy was really playing me up - still I hope you get the idea

MUA Blusher - Shade 1 Review

I've had a few requests do a review of this so here you go x As you know I got this blusher in my recent MUA haul. My first impressions of the this blush were good - I loved the smooth texture and the pigmentation was really good for the price
A super bubblegum pink shade (the ideal match for gaga) this blush has a pretty strong colour on application but it blends down nicely to create a pretty pink look (which you can hopefully see above). One of the major questions I've had on this it is about it's longevity - I have to say on my skin (combination) it actually lasts pretty well -as I say it is pretty pigmented which helps it to last
I only have a couple of complaints about this first of all it is a bit powdery when you dip your brush on to it you do pick up a lot of powder so you need to tap it otherwise you'll end up with clown cheeks and lots of fallout lol, and because it's so powdery you do tend to lose a bit in the compact. Something I've also noticed when I've started using it is that it does have quite a noticeable smell - it's not horrible by any means more a sort of granny floral. All in all I am pretty impressed with this blusher for only £1 you really can't argue it has its issues but the pigmentation more than makes up for it. MUA products are available from selected Superdrug stores and online for £1 an item.
