Dreadful application = almost ruining awesome blush

Collection 2000 Shimmer Shade Blushalicious blusher
Hi, hello and welcome! Hope you’re having a nice night. Correction, make that morning :) I can’t sleep so figured this would be the perfect time to write this little post which I’d meant to do before sleepy time

I mentioned this little Shimmer Shades quad in a haul post waaay back and have started using it loads recently. Ever find that you pick stuff up, leave it lying around in a drawer for months then realise that it’s actually really worth using all the time? I seem to have been doing that a lot recently
But anyway… I really like the shades in this little quad cos although they look scarily bright in the pan they’re actually fairly subtle and buildable when swatched. I generally like a lot of colour payoff from as little product as possible as I find powders have a tendency to sink into my pores if I keep applying more n more so this suits my pale skin really well

I’ll usually just swirl my brush around all 4 colours and do some sweepy strokes over my cheek and that’s me sorted. To be honest I’ve always thought it looked grand when I was looking in the mirror. It was only when I looked at this pic today that I realised the powder isn’t quite smart enough to realise where to put the shimmer and where to put the shade (yeah, I guess expecting a powder to know where to put itself is asking a wee bit much) so my extremely lazy swirly “technique” means the highlighter shade is far more obvious at the bottom instead of the top of my cheek

Memo to self; take an extra 20 seconds to do the blush and highlighter separately. Lazy sod

P.S. If you don’t copy my crappy application then I reckon you’ll find this blush works a treat, looks lovely on and lasts ages. All for the bargain price of £4.19

Hahaha! I honestly haven't noticed that the highlighter was at the bottom until I read that part. But it's a nice colour, it suits you well! When you ae going to correct the application it will be perfect :)

I didn't notice the gleam was in the 'wrong' place either. Just thought that it looked a great colour on you.
Sadly, at my age, I am having a bit too much 'glow'!!
I also have an award to pass onto you.
