It’s no surprise that Makeup Revolution has taken the blogasphere by storm, their wide range of products and ridiculously low prices are something us bloggers love. So when Superdrug sent me an email about their 3 for 2 promotion on all cosmetics I didn’t hesitate to make a purchase.
I got a fair few products which I will review in due course but today I wanted to share my thoughts on The One Blush Stick in Matte Malibu (£5). The main reason for buying such an intense colour is purely for contouring, I’m not great at contouring but I do try my best to sculpt my face as best as possible. I’ve always used a powder product but having read numerous reviews from fellow bloggers they seem to favour a cream based product so I thought I’d put one to test and see if I agree with them.
Firstly the packaging is super simple and follows the staple black colour which runs through all Makeup Revolution products, the product is housed in a bullet stick form just like a lipstick. The only issue I have with the packaging is that the product name is printed on the packaging so if you have more than one Blush Stick from Makeup Revolution you’d have to put a little sticker with the name unless you kept it in its original box packaging.
The pigmentation of this blush stick is incredible; a light sweep of the product will give you immense colour payoff. Since I was using this as a contour I had to be really careful that I didn’t apply too much product however saying that it blends in amazingly well. I find picking up the product with a stippling brush and then applying it to the desired area works best.
Matte Malibu has a terracotta/orangey tinge to it which I think would be better suited for more olive to deep skin tones. Due to its muddy tone I think it would be far too dark for someone with light to medium complexion.
The One Blush Stick is available in four colours altogether in both Matte and Sheen finishes and the packaging cleverly reflects which is which. This is a great release from Makeup Revolution and amazing value for a product that can be applied to both the cheeks and lips. Although, I’m not sure I’d apply Malibu to the lips I think it’s a product best suited for bronzing/contouring however the other shades in the range would make great lip colours.
Overall I’m incredibly happy with this product and for £5 it’s definitely worth a try; it gives me the right amount of contouring/bronzing that I like to create a natural finish. I’ve heard many bloggers hail this product as a dupe for the famous high end Nars Multiples which come in at an eye watering £30.00, I’m not sure how they compare but what I do know is this is a great product and most definitely worth a try.
