MUA Blush In 'Shade 3'

I'm back again with some more MUA, this time a blush. I'm compelled to say this is actually my first ever post on a blusher so we shall see how my usual lipstick reviewing skills translate. Like most MUA products, this cost a mere pound. This makes it ideal for a handbag touch up pan, temporary supply or as a starting point for girls just getting into makeup. The packaging is alike most of their products - a black and transparent plastic case which does its job just fine.

I'm aware MUA have quite a limited range of shades when it comes to blushes and bronzes, maybe as their collection expands we'll see more appearing. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think there are a total of 3 shades, all of them being mid-pinks. If you click on the photos in this post, you'll see a clearer image of the tiny gold reflecs in the powder. Although it appears to have glitter in, its untraceable when applied. A positive thing in my books. Unlike a lot of lower end blushes I didn't find this to be chalky. The only complaint I would propose is the longevity of the blushes, I'd say it lasts around 3 hours on otherwise bare skin, probably around 5 with a good primer.

Product - MUA blusher in Shade 3
Advantage - Great amount of product for only £1
Disadvantage - Doesn't last very long on the skin
Suits - Paler skin tones and those with cool tones 
Pigmentation - Not amazing, but good when considering the retail price
Availability - £1 - Superdrug
Overall score - (5/10)

  1. This was the first blusher I purchased from MUA and I must say at first I loved it and wore it a lot, but I soon found how little time it lasted and the packaging broke so easily! But I can't really complain considering it was cheaper than chips!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I try to reply as much as possible!
