Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks

The one Blush stick

Love, love, love cream blushes for the summer. In fact I love a cream blush year round. I find they suit my dry skin and give better colour payoff and last longer than powder blushes on me. I have had these two from Makeup Revolution in my collection for a while so they deserve a good review. As you know I’m a Makeup Revolution fan so have a good few products in my stash. Makeup Revolution have a good reputation going for budget dupes of higher end products and these sticks look to be the budget version of the NARS multiple sticks. To my shame I don’t yet own any NARS so I can’t draw a direct comparison but I’ll let you know how I got on with them.

I have a bit of a niche going in coral blushes. I own probably far too many than one person could possibly need but of course I had to add some Makeup Revolution corals to my collection. I bought the coral toned shade Rush online a few months ago but as soon as I opened it I realised it’s not for me. The Rush shade is shimmery, bordering on glittery and if you know me I really hate glitter in makeup products! So I didn’t get the chance to test the formula as I couldn’t put all the glitter near my face.

I do love MR though so of course I gave them a second chance by picking up the shade Matte Rush on a recent trip to Superdrug in The Square Tallaght who have a Makeup Revolution stand. The Matte Rush shade is like chalk to the Rush cheese. They’re so different. Matte Rush is almost a red toned coral and I was a bit alarmed at the intensity of it when I opened it, as the shimmer shade is very sheer. But now I’ve tried it out I think I love it a little bit.

You have to apply this with a light hand to cheeks, I use my fingers to take a tiny bit of the product. The colour is not a pure coral but has a burgundy tone to it which sounds awful but actually looks lovely on cheeks. This is also a lovely colour on lips, it looks more coral on the lip but I like it. The colour has serious lasting power particularly on the cheeks. Matte Rush is just a great all-rounder for me.

So after my initial hiccup with the shimmer-fest that was Rush I found ‘The One’ for me (geddit!) in Matte Rush. Rush might be for you if you like a bit of shimmer/glitter but that’s just not my cup of tea. Did I mention these are bargaintastic at €6 each. You can get Makeup Revolution in Superdrug in The Square in Tallaght and the Omni shopping centre in Santry. You can also order online at www.makeuprevolutionstore.com.  Also just want to say I buy all my MR products myself and have no affiliation to them, I just really like the bulk of the products I’ve tried! Do you have any cream blushes you love?

    Can I use it as a dark circle corrector?
    I have really blue dark circles and cover it with a orange concealer.

      I don’t think I’d use this Ankita the pigment and texture isn’t right. I see they released a colour correcting concealer palette last week so maybe check out that on the makeup revolution site!
