i'd heard a lot about these revlon cream blushes and i really wanted to try one out (boy, do i love a good cream blush). these retail for a ridiculous $26.95 in australia and i couldn't seem to find them much cheaper online but i also couldn't justify spending that much on a blush when i already have SO MANY. especially when you can buy these utterly glorious stila convertible colour blushes even cheaper (i'll have to post about them soon). but, while trying to kill some time before seeing a band after work my friend and i found ourselves browsing the make up counters in myer. the revlon counter was giving away a gift pack if you spent over $40 and after hearing me talk up their lip butters (um, i have 6...) my friend really wanted to try them for herself. she was still under $40 on her own so i decided this was a good enough reason to buy this blush and we could split the gift set.
predictably, when we divvied it up set i ended up with the blush, lip butter and eyeliner - perfect for me! i have a particular eyeliner that i never bother to change up because it's absolutely perfect for me and i can't imagine finding anything better, but i'm happy to at least give this one a shot. i actually already have this colour lip butter but i really love it so i don't mind having a back up, and i quite like the sculpting blush palette too. i haven't yet delved into the world of contouring and bronzers and don't really have much desire to either - i'm super pale and i can see it going wrong so easily, but at least now i have a fairly light colour that i could try out if the mood strikes. but i can say the highlighter has been getting a bit of a workout.
as for the cream blush, it didn't disappoint at all. it looks a bit bright and scary in the pot but if you apply it with a light hand it looks so soft and fresh on the cheeks and i don't have any other colours like it. i really love this blush and now i definitely have my eye on the coral shade as well.
