There's honestly nothing quite like finding that great product that performs just as well as something high end but for a quarter of the price. This is my thoughts and feelings regarding the Accessorize Merged Blusher in the colour Sensation With Love. I've had this for just over a year now and as you can see I have barely even dented the rich, baked formula which gives excellent colour and glides on so smoothly. I was a bit hesitant to try this at first as Accessorize being a company mostly renowned for their stunning jewellery and lovely winter wear, make up seemed slightly..random?
When it comes to appearance and packaging I really would expect nothing less then for it to be beautiful considering it is created by Accessorize, a company that always excels itself in its girly, bohemian designs. Its cute and compact and I love nothing more then being able to see the actual product underneath a clear, see-through lid so this already ticked that box. Add in the gold decorative, butterflies and the italicised Accessorize logo, all in all this makes to be a very attractive overall product.
The blusher itself is a lovely light pink colour which is merged with a gold shimmer that creates a pretty-in-pink look once applied with an added bonus of the shimmer also doubling up to be a highlighter - perfect when you can't be bothered to add both. The formula is easily build-able and lasts a good six hours which I think is more down to the pale colour then the actual product. Taking in the appearance of the product and the actual formula, I definitely think these could be a decent dupe for the Mac Mineralized Blushers and better yet these only cost about £5! Perfect for a natural look in the summer or to emphasise those cold, rosy cheeks in the winter, this is definitely something you could get a decent use out of all year round.
I purchased mine from the Accessorize stand in Superdrug but I believe most of the Accessorize stores stock the majority of them too for the same price. I honestly think I could own all of the different shades and colours and not look at another blush ever again (and that's really saying something)
Let me know what you think.
