Firstly, apologies for my absence! I have been in Paris and away from home for the last few weeks, so I haven't had a chance to blog. Would you guys be interested in a Paris blog post with some pictures from my trip?
The other day I was on the hunt for a new blusher and I found myself in Superdrug taking up the 3 for 2 offer. I always find myself looking at the Accessorize baked blushers but have never really given them a go.
Accessorize Baked Blusher in Scandal - £4.50 SuperdrugVery similar to the MAC mineralize blushes, the Accessorize baked blusher have a lovey iridescent finish and come in a range of different colours. I went for 'Scandal', a pinky coral with a slight gold shimmer but as you can see, when applied it appears more like a berry colour. It is very pigmented, but can be applied with a light hand and built up to the desired colour and is also long lasting. The picture above shows a heavy swatch on the left and a blended swatch on the right. The packaging is very similar to their other products, which does the job! I find the butterflies are a cute touch.
At only £4.50 I truely think this is a high quality blusher for a very reasonable price. What do you think of their baked blushers? What other blushers would you recommend? I hope you are excited for the Jubilee weekend, I cannot wait for 4 days off work! I am also going on a Hen do to Brighton which should be fun :) What are you all up to?
