But does a more expensive product always guarantee a show-stopping result? Or are we just paying extra for a whole lotta nothing? I put this theory to the test…
The Bargain Buy: ‘Wet N Wild’ blush in ‘Berry Shimmer’
Luxola sell this vibrant ‘Wet N Wild’ blush for just $5.61! So yeah, that’s practically free.
On application, I found it incredibly pigmented and felt like instead of giving me that little, coy, cute blush, it sort of gave me that ‘oh my gosh my pants just fell down in public’ look. I think that this product is good if applied in incredibly small doses on just the apples of the cheeks, but I would think twice before slapping this all over your cheeks. This product is great, if you use it in moderation.
– The price
– Good if you like incredibly pigmented blush
– Smooth to apply
– Comes with a blusher brush (I would recommend using this, as the product stained my brush!)
-Stained my ‘Real Techniques’ blusher brush
The Tantalizing Treat: ‘Sleek Makeup Blush’ in ‘Rose Gold’
There’s something about multi-tonal black packaging that makes a product look so expensive. But this ‘Sleek’ blusher does anything but break the bank, it is a total steal at $9.47 from Luxola.
I actually thought that the colour was like a muted version of the ‘Wet and Wild’ blusher and luckily, it provided a deep, natural looking flush that was oh-so-flattering. Although the product was not very pigmented, a few swirls with my blusher brush and it gives a flattering glow.
– Natural looking colour
– Smooth and easy to apply
– The price
– Long lasting
– Not very pigmented
