First of all I was really skeptical of the mood boosting claims, to be honest I purchased this blush for the cute packaging and the fact that the colour looked so pretty. Does it work?? well parts of it do.
Mood boosting?? I don’t think so . For starters it is supposed to be Rose scented, which as regular readers know I hate! In my opinion it does not smell of rose, it smells of nothing. When I first got it there was a slight floral smell, nothing offensive but now as I have worn it a few times it smells of nothing! I have not got a clue how it is supposed to cheer me up if I can’t smell it. I think this part of the blush is highly exaggerated.
Now to the good stuff. The colour itself is beautiful, who would not like the swirls of pink in different shades, and just look at the cute design of hearts and the oh so pretty hot pink packaging. This bit they got so right. It looks great right from the start and it makes you want to use it. The blush itself goes on well and lasts for ages, I am not a fan of the small brush you get to apply it with, the bristles are scratchy and it is too small to be any good, but it will do for out and about touch ups.
I have worn this blush almost every day since I got it and it is now one of my favourites. Be warned it is super pigmented so use with caution, you can easily put too much on. On the cheek I will say it is more rose than pink, but as I have a million other pink shades I am not bothered.
Colour wise this blush is great, mood boosting, not for me! It is not shimmery but leaves a nice sheen to the cheek and it looks pretty all day.
