Collection Blush & Glow.


There have been so many good cheek palettes released over the past 6 months or so, and I have to say, drugstore brands are killing it. Collection have their fair share of palettes, and the cheek ones are fab. This Blush and Glow Palette is amazing, it has a bronzer, two blushes and a highlighter in one simple palette, perfect for taking away with you.



Starting with the bronzer, on the top left, I'm really impressed with the quality of this from a palette which costs less than £5.00! It does look quite dark in the pan, but actually it is a very medium toned brown which is a very buildable, matte bronzer, which works great under the cheek bones and around the face. The colour is very similar to NARS Laguna, although it isn't as pigmented. The next shade across is a light shimmery highlight. I'm used to very finely milled, buttery highlighters so this did let me down a little, but I would still use it. On first use, it was a bit powdery and kind of went everywhere when I picked some up on my brush, but on the cheeks it leaves a lovely natural glow which didn't settle into any fine lines or pores. I would have preferred this to be a bit more on the champagne side, just as that's what I like, but if you have a fair completion this light pink/peach will work great for you.

For the blushes, you get one matte and one more shimmery which is a great mix. The shades are slightly similar, both nice warm pinks, however the more shimmery one has some coral in there too, great for spring and summer. I did find these transferred a bit lighter on the skin then when you first see them in the pan, but they are nicely pigmented and very easy to blend. The matte shade comes up more of a classic, light pink shade which is perfect for an everyday natural look. For a drugstore palette I think this one is actually really great, it's pigmented, very easy to blend and the colours compliment each other nicely and are great for people just getting into bronzers and highlighters.
