I was recently sent this adorable Barbie-pink blusher* from Born Pretty; housed in a metallic-pink compact and embossed with hearts, this is almost too pretty to use, and easily one of the cutest blushers I own. But is it any good...?
The blusher has a clear plastic lid so it's easy to see the shade within; the pan containing the blusher lifts up to reveal a little brush and a mirror - the brush I received was quite mis-shapen and not really big enough to successfully apply blusher with, but it's a nice thought!
Of the ten shades available, I have #6, which is a bright cool-toned pink with just the slightest hint of shimmer; this isn't noticeable at all once it's on the skin. The embossed design puts me in mind of Physician's Formula, although I've never tried their blushers so I'm not in a position to compare.
I apply using my usual ELF Studio Blusher Brush; the blusher is quite pigmented so you need to use a light hand, but it does blend out really nicely to give a natural flush of colour to the skin. I've also found that it lasts really well on my skin without fading, easily lasting from 8am when I apply my make-up, through a full day at work, and into the evening if I need it to.
This super-cute blusher is an absolute steal at just £3.50 for 7g of product here, and with ten shades to choose from, I'm sure there'll be one to suit you! And if you like the sound of heart-shaped make-up, check out my post on Born Pretty's Heart-Shaped Lipstick... What do you think of this product? Would you use a Born Pretty blusher?
