Today's post is about the incredibly priced MUA Blush in Candyfloss. As I said when I reviewed the same blush in the shade "Cupcake," I suppose I do suffer from a slight amount of make up snobbery.
My make up drawers are full of 'drugstore' brands like Rimmel, Maybelline and Bourjois but then when we go down to the lower end brands I struggle to believe that they're going to be any good. I just associate them with being the stuff you play with in your early teens that doesn't really have any pigmentation unless you want to apply it with a trowel.
All of that aside, let's talk about the blush itself. The packaging is basic but it serves the purpose. I believe that they've since changed it to now open at the longer side although I didn't purchase this blush very long ago at all.
"Candyfloss" is a matte shade, my favourite finish! I love shimmer, don't get me wrong, but I like to be able to place it where I want it afterwards. This is more so as I often a shimmer eye going on and I don't want to look too 'disco!'
The quality is actually really great. I wouldn't say it was a chalky type of powder which was my biggest fear as this is typical in the more budget make up brands. I would say, like most blushes it only lasts as long as the rest of your make up and obviously also depends on how much you touch your face, etc. It's definitely comparable to the brands I mentioned earlier in terms of wear.
I have to say though... these blushes are ace! I feel sure that they can't possibly make a decent profit from a pound?! On that same thought, MAC are clearly making a fortune with their products although I'm sure they're made with a higher quality ingredient that my cheeks clearly can't differentiate between. Overall, these blushes are a steal that I highly recommend.
