Fashionista – New York Blush

I have used this blush almost every day for months and I can’t believe it’s only just making it into a post of it’s very own. I know it looked battered and abused but this is just a testament to how well loved it has been. Usually I take beauty shots of products before I use them in order to review them at a later date once my like/dislike has set in but I really didn’t think much to this when I got it so I didn’t bother. It’s one of 12 blushes I have from the Fashionista range and not one I would have chosen. Upon first glance it seems to have a great deal of shimmer which put me off straight away, a wise woman once told me shimmer enhances the pores which is obviously something I’d want to avoid but applied in the right areas it can also give a beautiful glow! Rather than shimmer/glitter particles the finish of this blush is more of a sheen. It’s so finely milled that the warm pink and the golden tones just merge together to create a healthy looking glow that has to be applied pretty darn heavily to look overdone. That’s another major plus for me, I am so heavy handed with blush and bronzer that I prefer a sheer formula that I can build up to a desired colour than a super pigmented blush that needs to be blended out for 10 minutes because I look like a Russian Doll. Overall this has been an absolute staple in my makeup bag and I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve recommended it to people but one last time (maybe) go and buy this, you wont regret it!

Available for £4.00 here but you used to be able to fill a quad palette for £12.00 so look for the offers if you’re interested in trying more from the Fashionista range!

    This is my absolute favourite blush. I saw you review it before and loved that its glowy but not shimmery, I hate shimmery blusher! I’ve been using it with the “Bella” eyeshadow as a highlight aswell – super pretty! x
