In my £15 high street challenge post on Tuesday, you'll have seen I picked up this blusher by Beauty UK - it's the first thing I've tried by the brand so I had no real expectations. On appearance, it reminds me of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, and I'd imagine that's no accident. But, seeing as I've never tried any of the Shimmer Bricks, I really can't compare.
In this box there is a mix of 5 different shades - 4 are pink, and one is pretty much white. Generally, you'd just swirl your blusher brush over all of them, but if you wanted to add a little bit of highlight, you could just use a smaller brush, or your finger to go into the white shade, could be good to use on the cupids bow?
Just thinking about it, these could also double up as eye shadows. Personally, I'm not a fan of pink shadow, so I wouldn't use it for that - it'll be staying as a blusher in my collection! Each stripe is shimmery, so does contain little glitter particles, but I didn't find that this translated onto my skin - it did give me a gorgeous glow though without being overly shimmery.
The quality is lovely - I only needed one swirl for each cheek. It's very well pigmented, but not over the top, and blended beautifully. With blusher, as a rule, I always use my powder brush after applying blusher to soften the look just by brushing it over the cheeks - it helps to soften the edges of the blush.
I bought mine at Superdrug for £4.99 - do I think it's worth the price? Yep, it's a really lovely blusher with a lovely finish that's great quality. So far my foray into Beauty UK is great, are there any other products of theirs you'd recommend?
