This shade, Pop, was created especially to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. It’s a bright coral pink, which is usually the kind of shade I go for, and has a lovely glittery sheen through it.
Although I go through stages of cream blushers, my absolutely huge blush collection is mainly made up of powders. I was a bit wary of how to use this at first, but found that it was best applied using my fingers. I tried to show that it’s really quite a thin liquid, I apply it to my hand as shown and use that as a palette so I can take a small amount to apply. I use two fingers to pat it on to the apples of my cheeks and gently blend.
It looks like it will be really bright and hard to use but I think as long as you just do one layer (or two if you need more), it will turn out really well. I sometimes use a brush, like this ELF Angled Blush Brush, to blend it in more but really I don’t think this is necessary. I’m surprised at how natural it looks, it blends really well and creates such a soft flush.
It sets to become non-transferable, which means it lasts all day long. You really only need a pea sized amount, so although I was surprised at how small the bottle is (I’m really not sure what I was expecting), I’m sure this will last me forever.
Overall, this product has really lived up to my expectations. It costs £14.50, and you can buy it on the Escentual.com website
. I actually think this is a pretty reasonable price, considering I usually spend more than this for a powder blush.
As I already mentioned, Pop is a limited edition shade, but you can buy many other shades here, with 10% going to Breast Cancer Care.
