The Drugstore Blush that looks high end


Y'know that perfect blush shade you're always browsing for in the drugstore but it never quite compares to high end? Well I've found it... I'm talking my favourite blusher of all time (no exaggeration) Do I have your attention? It's a must!

*Drum roll* It's the L'Oreal Le Blush in 'Rosewood' - £7.69. My mum purchased one of these and as soon as I spotted it when she was applying her makeup I immediately wondered what she had on her cheeks. I hate obviously rosy pink blushes, as you can see from my NARS set I have never touched the light pink shade and for that matter many of the other shades as the palette is so huge I never keep it in my every day makeup bag, anyway...

This little beaut is small, compact and the colour is just delicious. 'Rosewood' is the perfect rose colour for cheeks without being pink-toned, it's almost more brown-toned. Don't be scared off if you tend to stick to lighter blushes as this does look quite dark in the compact but I find you can wear this very subtly or build up for a more dramatic look.

I do love that it's so small and comes with a mini mirror just underneath the blush, which is also where the mini little brush is stored too; I'm not mad on the brush and would always tend to use my own anyway. I think it looks so sophisticated on and the colour is definitely a colour you don't tend to find in the drugstore. It's a blush shade that I've been searching for for along time! I think with darker skin in summer it's going to look beautiful too!
