I think I’m growing up.
Big revelation coming before a birthday but yes, I think I’m growing up! I’m turning away from products with high shimmer and am now going for more subtle textures and even *gasp* matte!
My previous experiences with matte blushes weren’t very successful as they tend to be hard or chalky or powdery. But if the Revlon Matte line has a winning product, its their Matte blushes. Mine is in Perfectly Peach a matte (doh!) light peach-pink shade.
The blush comes in a surprisingly thick plastic case with a window in the cover so you can see the colour inside. The reason for the thickness is because a mirror is hidden under the blush – press on the button pictured and it pops out.
Personally I don’t use the little mirrors that come with products and especially not when applying blush so I did not quite see why packaging should have been compromised (I felt it was compromised as thinner packaging would have been preferable) However, I do know some people find these little mirrors useful or they might not be fussed about a few extra cm added to the thickness of the case.
Product wise you get a lot of product which is good. I like blushes that come in wide shapes – its easier to swipe your brush across a wide area than a narrow one and you also have better distribution of powder.
