I want to introduce my latest blush obsession to you.
The other day while I was in Superdrug looking for hair bleach (seriously this ombre is taking some getting right!) I picked up this single blush from the Little Mix range by Collection. In the pan, it doesn’t look too special and I honestly don’t know what drew me to it.
I’m not really a big Little Mix fan (although I do love their new song!) So it’s not that. It shall remain a mystery. Anyway, I swatched it and was so impressed with the pigmentation and how gorgeous the colour was! And because it’s by Collection it wasn’t going to further damage my post-Christmas bank balance at £2.99!
My first thought was that it looked like a dupe for Benefit Coralista blush. It isn’t far off, but in real life it is slightly more pink. It reminds me of a mash-up of Coralista and Deep Throat by Nars. It’s definitely in that peachy/coral pink with a shimmer family. It’s a finely milled powder, which is buttery soft in texture. It applies and blends into the skin so nicely! There is some fallout, but tapping off the excess from your brush sorts that. So no biggie.
I feel like I haven’t had a new blush obsession for ages. I’ve been using bronzer alone and skipping blush a lot lately. So this is a welcome addition to my makeup bag! Now I’m looking forward to having another look at the Little mix line when I next pop down to Superdrug. Who’d a thought it eh?
Let me know if you’ve tried anything from the range and if there are any other little Gems worth picking up.
