Makeup Academy (MUA) blusher- shade 2 review


This is the first post on my series reviewing the MUA products I purchased a few weeks back.
Haul post here.

When I placed my order I wasn't quite sure what to get because for the most part all MUA products have AMZING reviews and rates.
I'm not a huge nail polish lover and I've purchased lots of lip products in the past few months so I left those out.

Blushes are one of the stars from MUA. 
I looked at many, many swatches on the Internet and finally decided to pick MUA blusher in shade 2. It seemed a peachy/corally/pink blusher so a safe shade for me and it was highly recommended.

Needless to say that I'm completely in love with it and I've been using almost every day ever since alternating this one with my other two favourite blushes at the moment from H&M
Review of those two here.


Prize: £1.00 (try to beat that!!)
Packaging: simple and minimalist
Size: small (perfect for traveling)
Quantity: 2,4g

This is seriously the softest and most creamy drugstore blush I've ever owned/tried.
At first I couldn't really figure out the exact shade because it changes a lot depending on the light. But I would describe it as a rosy/peach light color.

Top road: MUA blusher shade 2 under different lights: cloudy day vs sunny day.
Bottom road Left: MUA blusher shade 2 swatch + H&M 12 Dazzling Peach + 17 Tawny Rose
Bottom road Right: MUA blusher shade 2 swatch on its own.
Like you can see the color looks completely different depending on the light. I thought it'd be really similar to Dazzling Peach from H&M but it turns out to be lighter and more pinkish.

By the way, the swatches at the bottom left are really true to color so it gives you a pretty good idea of how the colors are.

And there is not much to say about it. 
It's cheap, easy to transport, super soft, really pigmented and
the staying powder is pretty good, so what else can you ask for? =)

I think it would make a good stocking stuffer for any make-up lover or someone that is starting to be in to make-up

Love bargains like this one. LOVE , LOVE, LOVE!!
I might get my hands in other shades and also in their new cream blushes!

What do you think? 
I've heard there is another offer of 40% coming up soon.
With 3 nailpolishs free.
Shipping is internationally
Would you fall for it? =)
