Birchbox Breakdown

This peachy pink powderhas a subtle infusion of golden shimmer to give off a 3D effect. It also works as a shadow and highlighter, letting you achieve pinup-worthy results with just one product. And did we mention that the compact mirror will look right at home in your bag? It combines subtle colour with light-reflecting silica particles to give us the peachy keen complexions we’ve always wanted. Wear it on your cheeks, your lids, and wherever you want to add a dose of shimmery warmth.

How to Use

Sweep up a small amount of powder with a blush brush, and brush on the apples of your cheeks and your cheekbones. Next, use a shadow brush or the pads of your fingers to apply the pigment as a shadow. Feel free to add a touch to your jawline, the bridge of your nose, or anywhere else the light strikes (we promise the results will be stunning).

Love colour and packaging!!

So easy to apply, I love this product! Only thing I would say could be improved is the the amount of shimmer, I'm not a fan of shimmer and I don't mind it but I don't particularly like it, I found this blush to have a tiny bit too much, but it does not make your face look shiny or glittery while wearing it. I love the mirror in the case and the vintage style of the Hot Mama case ( and all other products!)

Dream blush!
Purchased

This blush is so easy to blend! I get anxious with blush as a heavy application looks naff on me, so I tap my blusher brush into the blush with a really light hand and build up....or rather I did. This stuff- I can happily swirl my brush around knowing that it will blend to a gorgeous pinky coral colour with a nice golden shimmer. My new favourite blush.

Great blush!
Purchased

Am really glad I purchased this blush - it looks great with a suntan. Am probably unlikely to use it as an eyeshadow though.

Perfect Blush!
Purchased

I've had a really hard time trying to find a blush which complements my skin tone, blends nicely, and lasts for 8 hours + whilst I'm at work - and I've finally found it! The shimmer in the palette looks quite intimidating but once of the cheeks it is very subtle and just gives a beautiful healthy glow. You only need to tap your brush into the product once, and you get more than enough product for application. It blends with no effort required at all, and doesn't go patchy even the slightest bit. I've found that it does last for at least 8 hours, but haven't tested it longer than that yet - I have a feeling it'll last plenty longer as it still looked absolutely beautiful at the 8 hour mark. The only negative I've noticed is that the shimmer does transfer ever so slightly when you touch your face throughout the day - really nothing that's bothered me in the slightest in all honesty. The colour stays on my cheeks and it doesn't make it patchy despite the transfer. 100% recommend to everyone as I feel that this is a blush that would work for any skin tone.
