Well another week, another new release from Makeup Revolution! Don’t act surprised! 😉 This time it’s The One Blush Sticks. There are eight chunky sticks to choose from in this collection, including four shimmer / sheer shades and four matte shade equivalents…
On the above picture on the top row we have Malibu, Dream, Pink and Rush, and the bottom row Matte Malibu, Matte Dream, Matte Pink and Matte Rush. The One Blush Stick collection includes a great range of completely different colours, and with each shade having a matte option too there should easily be something to suit everyone!
The One Blush Sticks are £5 each, and I’ve heard that they’re comparable to NARS Multiple’s which are £30 each! I don’t have a NARS Multiple to compare I’m afraid so I can’t tell you myself, but if you take a look at the NARS site you’ll see they do look incredibly similar! If the product is similar too, then these really are a complete bargain. I anyone knows for sure please let me know!
Above top row are the standard Blush Sticks and the bottom row are the Matte Blush Sticks.
On to the swatches! Here are the standard (shimmer) Blush Sticks. I love the first shade, Rush, it’s a sheer coral shade that’s super pretty and I think it will suit most skin tones. Pink is a bit more daring in shade and pigmentation, and Dream looks like maybe more of a highlighter to me? It does have a hint of shimmer and I think it’s probably too light for a blush, but again this will depend on your skin tone and the look you’re going for. Malibu is quite dark with a hint of shimmer too, this would definitely work well for darker skins.
And the matte shades – wow! How totally intense and pigmented are these!? Don’t forget, these are swiped directly on my arm to show you the full potential of the shades, you wouldn’t wear them like this! (I hope!) All the shades are super blendable so you only need a tiny amount to start with and you can easily build up the colour as required. Again Rush is my favourite here (I have a thing about coral shades) and I think Malibu could be used as a contour with a really light hand – I’ll have to give it a go and let you know how I get on!
I’d love to hear what you think and if you’ve tried these?
I hope you enjoyed my review! xxx
