Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks* - £5.00
As I mentioned in my 'New Beauty Bits' post last week, Makeup Revolution have released a new range of blushers which I've been testing out & it's now time to share my findings! The collection consists of eight shades in two different shades matte & bold and the packaging is even designed to reflect the finish of the product... so matte black plastic packaging for all four matte shades & black shiny plastic packaging for the four shimmer/bold shades. They're multi-use too, meaning they aren't just to be applied to your cheeks but work as a lip product as well! 
The Matte swatches from left to right are: Matte Dream, Matte Pink, Matte Rush & Matte Malibu.
Matte Dream is a very pale pink whilst Matte Pink is a Barbie kinda pink shade with cool blue undertones. Matte Rush is a bright coral colour & Matte Malibu is a warm brown/terracotta shade. Malibu is probably the shade that is the most unwearable for me, as it appears quite muddy on my pale complexion but it would work well on darker skin tones. Matte Dream & Pink are both really pretty shades, with Dream being perfect if you're wanting a little flush of colour/highlight & Pink if you want a pop of colour on your cheeks. Rush, although it looks really bold when swatched is a really flattering blush colour & is also the only colour I'd actually wear on my lips. Whilst all of the colours could be worn on the lips they aren't really my cup of tea when it comes to lipstick shades but I've been wearing more coral/orange/peach tones on my lips since discovering they suit me! Even though these are a matte formula they still have a creamy consistency & apply really smoothly using either a stippling brush or a blusher brush for a less intense look.

Swatches from left to right are: Dream, Pink, Rush & Malibu. (Sorry I really struggled to get Dream to show up well on these photos!)
Dream is definitely a highlighter shade, with it's pearly shimmer finish it sits well on the brow or cheek bone. Pink is a blue toned pink but isn't as pigmented as it's matte sister, meaning it is more wearable. My favourite shade from the whole bunch is Rush, being rose gold I loved it instantly anyway & it reminded me of one of my favourite blushers 'Sleek - Rose Gold' which in turn is a dupe of the famous 'Nars - Orgasm'. Whilst I was doing research for this post I discovered that these blush sticks are actually pretty good dupes for the Nars Multiples & in fact Rush is pretty much identical to the Orgasm shade again.  I know I'd rather be paying £5 instead of £30 any way! Again, Malibu is no good for my pale skin but for tanned or darker skin tones I can see it being a great contour product. This formula is really creamy, soft & again applies well with either a stippling or blusher brush depending on what kind of look you what to go for. 

I think these little blush sticks are absolute bargains, especially when you compare them to the Nars Multiples. Priced at only £5 for a push up 2-in-1 blush/lip product combo they're the perfect makeup item to pop in your handbag too! With two formulas and eight shades to choose from their is definitely something for everyone! If you haven't already then I'd highly recommend heading over to your local Superdrug to check out the Makeup Revolution stand, they're becoming one of my favourite drugstore brands with so many incredible products at really affordable prices.

Which is your favourite shade?

  2. Those colours are gorgeous. I've had the same blush for years now - Bourjois Rose Frisson. I need to try and branch out a bit, but when you find something that works well for you it's hard to make a switch!

  4. They're lovely, I always prefer the deep vampy blushes or the innocent pale pink. But I am the fairest shade of all foundation nearly, so light pink shows up pretty well :-)
