This loose powder blusher is from the No7 range in Boots.
There is always an offer on that brings the price of their make up down . I managed to catch a couple of offers that meant the items were extremely reasonable. The offers were Buy One get the second Half Price and also for each purchase you could get £3 off if you had a voucher.
As I was buying four items it was best to buy two first - get the half price deal and use the £3 off voucher I had on the first two and I was then given another voucher that I could use to purchase my next items - again one half price and £3 off.
The ladies in Boots are used to me and are very willing to always help me out.
My other items were 2 eye shadows and a nail polish. I worked out that I paid 50p for one of the eye shadows with the deal. The nail polish cost me nothing and the second eye shadow only £6 - bargain.
In other words what would have cost me £28 cost me £16!
The powder blusher retails at £9 and you can buy it here.
The powder blusher comes with a little brush which is surprisingly effective. I think I would use this if I took the blusher out in my bag as I tend to use my Real Techniques brushes at home. The No7 brush does tend to shed it's bristles on occasion which I do find annoying, but apart from that this is a great little product .
You swirl a little of the powder around in the lid and apply to the cheeks. A little tip to the ladies who find their cheeks are not as pert as they once were. I don't agree with the applying of blusher to the apple of your cheeks - this is why.
If it is going southwards anyway why enhance it?
This is a lovely pale and subtle pink - perfect for summer. It may be too pale for those who are darker tone skin, but I love the pale sweep of colour it adds.
It lasts well and you can build the colour to make it a little richer if you wish.
This is a lovely product - my first I have really tried from No 7 and I am actually very impressed. I will be going back for more.
What is your favourite summer blush?
How do you apply your blush? Apple of the cheeks or not?
