It seemed fitting to review the adorable Multi Blush from the Marks and Spencer Limited Collection for this Valentine week's Makeup Monday.
Presented in circular cardboard packaging, M&S Limited Collection Multi Blush certainly has a budget feel to it, however, the cute heart print adds a sense of fun. The way in which the packaging is presented means that it's difficult to tell how much product you're actually getting so I was impressed when, upon closer inspection, I noticed that Multi Blush contains 9g of colour (for a comparison, a MAC powder blush contains 6g).
Upon opening the box, the blush itself is presented with a grid pattern, with each square featuring a raised heart shape. It's stunning and shows impressive attention to detail, particularly for a wallet friendly item. As the name suggests, the blush is multi-tonal, with three complementary shades of pale pink, rosy pink and lilac pink, which make for a very pretty cool-toned pink when swirled together. I normally veer away from cool-toned pinks but I found this to be very pretty for spring and surprisingly wearable, despite being out of my makeup comfort zone. Whilst the swatch above shows that there are shimmer particles, these aren't obvious on the skin and merely appear as a gorgeous sheen as opposed to chunks of glitter.
The blush is relatively pigmented, easy to blend and has a good quality formula that's not at all powdery or chalky. Perhaps a scent, such as a rose fragrance, would add a sense of luxury to Multi Blush but that's solely down to my personal preference and I'm aware that those with sensitive skin would likely be grateful that there is no discernible scent.
At just £6, M&S Limited Collection Multi Blush is an absolute steal which I can't recommend highly enough but hurry, it's limited edition so grab one before it's too late.
