♥ Too Faced Sweetheart Perfect Flush Blush Review ♥
I posted briefly about this blush a couple posts ago, & said I was going to a review. So here it is :P It's the Sweetheart Perfect Flush Blush by Too Faced. I bought mine from ASOS, it was £24, which isn't cheap, but I used a code for 20% off, so it ended up costing me around £19.
I tried so hard to get swatches & photograph them, but I guess beauty blogging doesn't come naturally to me, because I could not get a decent pic! I know, reviews without swatches aren't very useful, but I did try :P I think part of the reason I had trouble is that this blush is quite light, I swept the brush about 10x over it to come up with a normal amount of colour that I would wear. For comparison, my Paul & Joe blusher (which I wear most often), I usually use about 3 brush strokes worth of blush on each cheek. I do like quite a lot of blush though, so there is that...
The colour in the pan ranges from a bright-ish pink, to peach, to a slightly darker peach. All 3 colours have shimmer, the 1st & 3rd colours seem to have than the middle. The shimmer makes this blush quite glowy, which is also why I think I couldn't get good pictures of it. I normally go for pink blushes, & this one is mainly peach, which looks a bit more natural than my other colours. I wore this blush in my last outfit post, so you can kind of see it in action.
The box itself is cardboard, covered in really pretty pink & gold paper. To be honest, the packaging is a big part of why I bought it, I adore pretty packaging, & the heart shape & vintage design were hard to resist. The only downside to the cardboard packaging is that it's not handbag friendly, but I only ever take lipstick & powder out with my anyway for touch ups, so it's not a problem for me. I don't think it will be my fave blusher, but I will certainly wear it.
Whether it's worth £24, well that depends on your opinion. If you, like me, prefer to pay more for something adorable, then it is. If you don't like spending a lot on makeup & don't care about packaging, them I'm sure you can find much better value blushers than this one.
I'm really not a beauty expert, so that's just my take on it. For a more in depth review, you should check out this one by Temptalia, who is much better at reviews than me, haha! I should probably just stick to outfit posts, but there you go.
