Makeup Revolution: Powder Blush

I have fallen in love with blush this year.  I have literally gone from having two blushes to a drawer full of blushes in the last 12 months.  Companies like Makeup Revolution make it so easy to buy blushes though when they make good quality, cruelty-free blushes for just AU$2 each (plus postage).

The powder blushes from MUR are really nice.  They are finely milled, silky to the touch and very pigmented.

I purchased five out of the six blushes in this range.  The sixth blush is called ‘Now’ and is a neutral pink shade which I am sure is also lovely.  The range of colours here is excellent.  ‘Treat’ is a peachy colour, ‘Wow!’ is a bright, cool-toned pink, ‘Sugar’ is a rose shade (which is looking more red in the swatch picture than it does in real life), ‘Hot’ is a warm, red-based pink and ‘Love’ is a very soft, neutral colour.

These do kick up a bit of powder if you aren’t gentle when you tap in your brush, but because they are so pigmented you really do only need to gently tap in your brush or you will have TOO much colour on the cheek.  These wear really well on my skin and last through my work day without any worries.  The colour gives a gentle glow without glitter or high sheen.

If you look for these on the MUR website you will notice that the packaging has actually changed to a white, square package but the formula has stayed the same.  If you are interested to experiment with a variety of blush colours or just want to build your stash these are a really affordable, good quality option.  And if you manage to get on and off that MUR website and ONLY buy blush… well, you are a stronger person than me!

Have a great day 🙂
