The Rosy Cheeks blushes from City Colors retail individually for $5 or less, and they are a heck of a bargain at that price. The formula is soft and well-pigmented, though not so pigmented that you'd overdo it. Peony is a nudey pink in the same vein as Tarte Exposed, though not a direct dupe. I have been impressed by the longevity of this blush given the price point, but it wears all day and doesn't fade. The packaging is also nice, heavy acrylic that looks very pretty and shows off the embossing of the product itself. If you're a nude pink blush fan definitely check this one out.

This is the first City Color Collection product I have ever used and I can say that I am definitely pleased. My skin is combo-acne-prone and it gets pretty oily throughout the day. First i used my moisturizing primer and then sprayed this on top followed by my foundation and setting powder. Once everything was applied I sprayed this on my face once again and it did make a difference in how long my makeup lasted. I was matte throughout the day (roughly 6-7 hours), the spray did not change the consistency of how my makeup looked on my face and it didn't irritate my skin. This product does have a bit of a scent to it, I can't tell what it is but it's not overpowering and goes away after a few seconds. I would suggest spraying about arms length from your face to get an even spray and a good amount covered. Definitely worth the price tag of $9 i spent at winnes.

This mineral highlight from city colour came in a box with a contour powder and 2 brushes.The highlight powder appealed to me more than the contour as it blended more easily and had a really pleasant light vanilla scent. I also think it could work well as a setting powder similar to the bare minerals mineral veil, which I use frequently. I ditched the nylony brushes fairly early on in the process and started applying the highlight with a latex sponge. It worked much better this way, with less product flying away and a more precise application in the areas I wanted to highlight. This highlight was basically ok for sculpting and had a nice scent.

This contour powder from city colour came in a box with a highlighter and 2 brushes.It looked like it was going to be much too dark for my skin, but it belended out really well and I ended up putting 2 layers on.The flyaway quality of this mineral makeup was a bit annoying, and the brushes that it came with were useless. In my experience, latex sponge applicators are the only way to go with loose powder, and these brushes had an extremely nylon texture and didn't pick up or apply makeup well at all. I liked that the makeup is mineral based and that it was a suitable colour for my olive complexion, but this contour left much to be desired and I'm going to keep looking for a better alternative.Watch me get to grips with it hereJust search for Ayish Zone on YouTube x

I purchased this when it was at a discount retailer for about 50% off and it's quickly becoming one of my favourite setting sprays. It doesn't dry out my normal-dry skin yet it completely mattifies it. I have never had a setting spray that actually mattifies, even the NYX matte setting spray leaves a shiny layer on the skin. This makes it look like I've just done my makeup even if it's been on for 8 hours.It does have a scent, which I find quite nice but which is ver strong for a few minutes. It smells like a fresh floral/rosy perfume. If you don't like perfumed products, it might not be for you.
