MUA Blush - Shade 1

Hey guys,
Oh I how I wish I didn't have exams, all I want to do right now is to read blogs and write some awesome blog posts for you guys. Instead I'm at my desk hopelessly trying to revise for my upcoming exams.

Today I went into university for some seminars and as it's the first time I've left the house in a while I decided to make an effort with my makeup. I ended up using an MUA blush I bought a while ago and it made me realise how amazing it is.
MUA have a range of these blushes and they all cost a mere one pound. In my opinion there's no reason not to have the whole range, and I will definitely be purchasing some more colours soon. I have shade 1, and would describe it as a pretty pink maybe leaning towards the peachy side of things with a shimmery finish. For one pound I really wasn't expecting much when I bought it but I have to say I'm so pleasantly surprised. I applied this blush six hours ago and it is still visible on my cheeks. Obviously not as pronounced as it was when I first applied it but it's good enough, and anyway for one pound I'm happy to carry it around with me and reapply it throughout the day. The blush itself is pretty pigmented and is incredibly blendable, it is also very buildable too allowing you to flush your cheeks with a subtle flush of colour or layer it up to a more deep effect. One of my favourite aspects of this blush (except the price) is that the shimmery gold particles add a lovely glow to your face making this blush perfect for summer.

The only two problems I have with this product are that the packaging is a bit flimsy and the name is unimaginative. The product is just called shade 1 and I know this doesn't make any difference to the blush itself but I love buying things that have cute names. The blush comes in a cheap plastic container which isn't great but for £1 I'm glad they focused on the quality of the actual product rather than the aesthetics of the packaging.

My boyfriend and I are planning on going travelling this summer and because of this I've been on the lookout for some good quality but replaceable makeup to take with me.  I obviously have my collection of makeup that I love but I don't really want to take my favourite expensive makeup with me. So my mission is to find some cheap products to accompany me on my journey and  this blush fits the bill perfectly, it's not expensive but it's a great product and small enough to fit a couple of them in my backpack. So this is the first item on my list to pack, and I'm going to be keeping my eye out of any more potential travelling products.

Have you tried any blushes from this range? Any other shades that you'd recommend?

Lots of Love
