Blush Lovin’ from the Drugstore

Hey you guys,

long time no see, or read in this case. I know I’ve been a bit quiet over here on my blog as well as on Twitter lately because I’m currently trying to make my way through finals and if you’ve ever attended University you know what that means. I’ve taken all of my in class exams and now only have some essays to finish, so I thought I’d give myself a break and finally type up a blog post again because I’ve really missed blogging to be honest, so I’m really excited to get at least one post up again. Today I want to talk about my obsession with the Maxfactor compact blushes to you.

After seeing them all over my Instagram I was really tempted to buy one because they not only look super pretty but I also heard a lot of good reviews about them. Since I was at the mall with my mom and my brother anyway I decided to pick one of these bad boys up and give it a go. After some heavy swatting I eventually ended up with the shade 010 Nude Mauve. Turns out I was so impressed with this blush I went back and got 2 more shades: 15 Seductive Rose and my absolute favorite 25 Alluring Rose.

All three blushes look insanely pretty in the pan, which is what first drew me to them. The packaging is quite simple and compact, which I really like. What impressed me the most though was how insanely pigmented they are, especially for drugstore blushes. And they are so easy to blend! If you prefer matte blushes these might not be the ones for you as they are shimmery. However, they are some of the prettiest shimmery blushes I’ve come across because they have the perfect amount of shimmer to them. Another thing I really like is that although not all of the shades are warm-toned they somehow really brighten up your face and warm up your complexion. Basically I love them, so let me tell you a bit about the individual shades.

10 Nude Mauve

As I’ve already mentioned this was the very first shade I picked up. After swatching all of them and looking at them from all different angles I went with this one because I thought I’d wear it the most. As the name already suggests it’s a beautiful mauve color but it has a bit of a golden bronzy shimmer to it. I love the shade mauve in lipsticks, which is why I initially went for it.

15 Seductive Pink

This is basically your classic more cool-toned medium pink blush. I think it’s a stunning shade but that could also be because I always go for the cool-toned pink as they really suit me. This one has a bit more of a frosty finish which goes so nicely with the color.

25 Alluring Rose

So this one is the last one I picked up but it has turned out to be my favorite out of the three. It’s just the most gorgeous bronzy shade with a golden shimmer and some light pink undertones. It’s a very warm-toned blush, which is why I’m so surprised with how much I love this because I tend to go more for cool-toned shades. But I just love the way this warms up my complexion. It really adds that little extra to my face that gives me a healthy bronzed glow. As I’ve already said this one is definitely my favorite and I would totally recommend this to anyone for the summer as it really gives you a beautiful summery bronzed glow!

As you can probably already guess I’m absolutely in love with these blushes and I honestly didn’t expect I would like these as much because I rarely ever buy Maxfactor products. However, I’m so glad I gave these blushes a go because all three of them are stunning. Here are some swatches for you.

    1. I don’t own much by MaxFactor at all but I kept seeing these blushes everywhere so I needed to try them and I think they are well worth the money :)

  1. Alluring rose is just so pretty!! These are such a bargain too. I keep hearing such good things & I think next time in boots I’ll be heading straight to the max factor stand!!xx
