Gorgeous pink called China Pink. Rather cheap but effective, natural and economical product. I used 2 since one had broken to bits when I dropped it. But hey you should never drop your blusher of course they will break. After reading few reviews I will try more of other colors such as nude, these when I get back to my lovely UK next year. Very finely milled and natural looking blush and such a wearable color. Highly recommend to everyone, such a little gem and a lot of product for that price.
I was going through my whole makeup today and throwing out some of my old makeup to make way for some new products and I came across this blusher. I realised I hadn't used it in a long time, but I must have liked it at one point because I actually hit pan on it which NEVER happens with me and any blushers I own, especially a powder blusher. I own this in China Pink and it gives a real "pop" of colour to your cheeks. I tried on the tiny bit remaining today before throwing the container in the bin and it looked lovely on, although perhaps a bit too much for a daytime look as this is quite a bright blusher and I prefer a very natural look for during the day. I'm actually delighted I rediscovered this gem as next time in Boots I will be going in to repurchase, although perhaps in a different colour so I can wear it during the daytime also.
I have this in CHINA PINK: a medium shade of candy pink. The powder is lightly shimmering and gives me a healthy gleam, so I happily skip highlighting products when I'm wearing it. I'm around a n10, but still find this brighter colour easy to wear.
I'm impressed with the pigmentation; a little goes a long way. You don't get a lot of product, but it'll still last a while since you just need a light dusting of powder. The powder isn't very tightly packed, so it can be a bit messy. Not a deal-breaker for me, but if you're using this for the first time bear it in mind.
I've found that my 17 Blush Powder lasts all day with no touch-ups, and it doesn't enhance my dry skin. I'll be sure to pick up more colours in the range, as I'm so happy with the performance of this.
I don't really have a problem with the packaging - yes, it looks and feels a bit cheap, but for a great blush for £3.50 I don't really care about the outer packaging as long as it does it's job and protects the blush [it does].
I don't like these. I've tried several different colours and none of them are that pigmented on my NC42 skintone, not to mention, they're all full of garish shimmer. They're pretty cheap, yes - but I think that reflects the quality in this case!
These blushers are amazing! Such a bargain at £3.49 each. Great colours, highly pigmented (you don't need much on your brush) and they blend easily. I have 3 - Nude, Damson Wine and Brickie. I absolutely adore Nude, quite similar to MAC Mocha except that it's not matte and has a little bit of shimmer. It is easily my favourite blush at the moment and I wear it all the time. I am quite pale and it really brightens my complexion up. You can also build it up if you want to create a more dramatic look. Brickie is good to contour with, if I wear Brickie I tend to use it below my cheekbones and then use Nude or MAC in Pink Swoon on the apples of my cheeks. Damson Wine is a nice, slightly pinkier, and I don't wear this as often but it's still a pretty shade. Definitely recommend these blushers, they are great!
Brilliant stuff. Comes in a basic screw lid pot, but for £3.49 what do you expect? I sometimes use Brickie as a contour colour as on my PPP skin it comes out as a dark golden brown colour.. kind of a lighter version of Sunbasque, which I also own. China doll is great for a pop of that gorgeous bright candy pink. No nasty chunks of glitter, really smooth application, blends well alone or on top of foundation. Plus my pots have been abused in my handbag and not a crack. Perfect if you want to try a new colour you are not sure about without spending much. For ref if MAC made light enough foundation for me I would be approx NC10
I have four of these..
china pink...very similar to wet n wild heather silk and Macs' dollymix,
bramble frost..a lot like Mac's well dressed,just a tad paler.
nude..a nice natural browny/beige colour
brickie..a pinkish beige..a little like a paler version of Mac's sunbasque.
These retail at £3.49 and come in a round pot with a screw top lid.I really love these blushes,they apply well and last ages.I have many Mac blushes now..25 infact but I still enjoy using these little beauties.If they made a purpley blush I'd be in heaven :o)
Currantly on offer in Boots on a 3 for 2!
For it's price, around £3, this blusher exceeds many that cost more. I have clear, pale skin, and so blush can sometimes look too fake making me look like a russian doll! I have struggled to find blush that has a natural shade, that only gives a healthy colour and contours my face well.
The colour range of 17 blush is excellent, which is even more surprising considering the price range. I use the shade Nude, and only need a little amount of it for colour as the pigmentation is very concentrated. I usually use it over bronzer as I like to first have shadow over my face to contour the cheekbones, and then add 17 blush on the apples for a healthy, rosy glow. Sometimes, the blush can be so good I don't need foundation, just a swipe of colour to give me face life and I'm good to go!
I bought this years ago and completely forgot about it! It is now my HG blush. It suits my skin tone well, has little shimmer which i like and is higly pigmented. Only a little is needed because of this. I have a feeling this will last me forever however i would repurchase definately. I have had no problems with staying power, i have oily t zone and normal cheeks and it stays put from 7am in the morning to 10 at night. I dont even touch it up in the daytime! Recommend defo! Btw I have this in #25 nude.
I have this product in bramble frost, a delicate light pink. I love how light the colour is as its easy to build up and therefore you cant really go far wrong. I use it over a cream colour base as i have dry skin and powder products tend to dry me out, this technique works well for me. Another positive is the price, you really cant beat the product for quality at under £4
On the downside it doesnt have much staying power come the end of the day, but I find that little products do when applied at 7.30am and not touched up throughout the day.
I would recommend this blush, especially if your like me and were keen to see how a powder blush would work for you when you had always used cream as, at this price its not a huge waste if you feel it doesnt work for you.
