I've been guilty of wearing the same blush everyday for years- Cover Girl Classic Color in Soft Mink..I never even understood why people needed more than one blush lol.
But lately I've been experimenting with many bold eye looks and notice that some looks need a brighter pink blush, etc. I was hesitant to get this because it looked pretty bright AND I am a shimmer addict and saw that this had no shimmer. I didn't remember the exact shade, but I read on here that Wet n Wild has suprisingly good blushes so I picked this one up and then was glad to see on here that I got the right one! Soft Mink is like a pinky shimmery brown, so I was very suprised to see this on because it's just different for me. It is SOOO pigmented, usually I apply my blush heavily but I really had to town this down. However, it made me look so fresh and awake!
Because I have such oily skin, I'm not even worried about lasting power since i always have to reapply everything anyway! The packaging sucks but oh well. I bought mine at walmart for close to $3 which is a little higher than what other people paid for it but I am very satisfied and I'm glad I didn't end up splurging on something from Nars. Even if you think you don't like matte blushes- try this! It's still beautiful.
Had to knock this down a lippie since mine cracked! I'm going to be honest- I am a little rough with my makeup (I keep my MU in a makeup bag in my purse at all times so it gets kind of banged around) but it's never been a problem for me. On occasion, my CG powder foundation will crack once it gets low, but I've never had a full container of anything crack! I was hesistant to give it a lower lippie since maybe carrying it around isn't the best idea, but others seem to have mentioned the same thing- it cracks way more easily than it should. I paid about $3 for this and though I like the product, I shouldn't have to be paranoid about my blushes cracking on me. I'm still going to use this but just leave it on my dresser, which sucks because I have such oily skin I need touch ups! :-(
