OK, So I’ve been stalling with these Make Up For Ever Fifty Shades Of Grey stuff. And as you probably have guessed...I AM NOT A FAN OF THESE BOOKS OR THIS MOVIE. I have not and WILL not EVER read them or see these movies…as I’m assuming there will be more movies…why does Hollywood draggggggg these things out…like The Hunger Games movies …HOLY HELL Mockingjay Part 1 was BORING you guys…
I debated about reviewing these Make Up For Ever products but in the end…it’s about the makeup…so I shall share my thoughts on the collection.
Today it’s about the blush…of course! It’s where I always will start in a collection no matter what. #BlushFiendsNeverDie #justwatchedTheGooniesAgain 😛
The packaging of Make Up For Ever Desire Me Cheek Set($56) is..cute I guess? The black velvet pouch and dogtag with Make Up Forever stamped on it is pretty…although I have no idea what significance the key has…like I said… not a fan of the books. And don’t tell me because I really don’t want to know… 😛
This blush-fiend-worthy set features three cheek shades, plus an Artisan Powder Brush for application.
The Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow blushes in I-526, I-808, S-748 are stunning!
A lot of people said they’d never wear the orange shade, which is why I blended the pink and the orange together-it makes a nice peachy pinky coral shade if you do that! I do find that depending on the brush you use, it can be hard to get enough product on the brush. It takes some building up of the shades to get intensity, which is ok with me! As I get older I enjoy a gentler blush like these. But wow, they leave such a gorgeous sheen on the cheeks! Really pretty blushes that’s for sure!
Here’s a close-up of the Make Up For Ever Travel Precision blush brush in 150 included in the set.
I love Make Up For Ever’s brushes-they are so soft! This one is smaller than blush brushes I like to use-hey I have a LOT of cheek real estate to cover- but it is a travel size. It does work nicely and blends out colour beautifully. And it’s a great deal considering the price of this set is what you’d pay for most good high end makeup brushes.
The Make Up For Ever Desire Me Cheek Set is well worth picking up I say. It’s still available, so better get on it if you love it! Of course though, you could just build your own cheek palette with these shades or any of the other pretty looking shades that MUFE has…which is what I plan on doing soon. It kind of dawned on me when this arrived to review that I could do that…DUH TRACY. 😛 Oh, and the shades in this Make Up For Ever Desire Me Cheek Set are removable from the palette-so YAY for that! So if you do pick up more shades, you can always change up this trio to whatever shades your cheeks desire. Thumbs up Make Up Forever!
Anybody else just realize you could build a blush palette from these Make Up Forever new eyeshadows/blushes?
