My favourite blush of the moment has to be the New Cid blush trio in coral.

Oops, I realised taking that picture that it’s maybe time I bought a new blusher brush – shame on me! I just wanted to put into perspective the size of the pallet if you look at it next to a standard size brush.

Quick overview:

It is a great little compact, which easily fits into my make-up bag. Plus one undeniably great feature is that it is mirrored – which makes it perfect for on-the-go touch-ups!
I always used to use a bronzer and then blusher, but I have
found that the colours in the trio have eliminated the need to apply bronzer, as they alone provide that slightly sun-kissed glow – perfect!

The colour:

The pigment is just about right – not too light, not too dark.
The blushes do have a subtle shimmery glow to them, which some people may not like, but I think this
provides a nice highlighting effect.


One down side for me however, is that the packaging is white. This looks great when the product is brand new, but after a few weeks in your make up bag, it soon starts to look dirty, which is a bit of a shame.



Thanks for reading xoxo
