Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks

I have been dying to try NARS Multiples and I actually got one recently, but the price tag is a bit scary, if you are a beauty addict and want them all, haha :) The new  Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks* (£5.00 each) are a perfect purse friendly alternative though and they are actually pretty good!

The One Blush Sticks feature a cream formula and can be used on your cheeks and lips. There are 8 shades in total (4 mattes and 4 shimmers) and all of them are very pigmented. The formula is very easy to work with, creamy and smooth. I apply and blend these with my fingers and the effect is very natural. You can build up the colour easily though, if that's what you like. The lasting power depends on your skin type, but on me they last for 6-8 hours, or even longer if I set them with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.

The 8 shades include:
Dream - a subtle pink toned shimmery highlighter
Matte Dream- matte pale baby pink 
Rush - shimmery peachy pink with golden shimmer (a dupe for NARS Multiple in Orgasm)
Matte Rush - super pigmented matte coral 
Pink - bubblegum pink with a satin finish
Matte Pink- matte barbie pink
 Malibu - very warm toned medium brown with a little bit of golden shimmer
Matte Malibu - warm toned matte dark brown.

All shades except Matte Malibu are wearable for me, but if you are pale, I would avoid Malibu too. I can get away with it when I am all bronzed up, but I think it will be far too warm for most girls. My favourite shade is definitely Rush, but I also love Matte Pink and Matte Rush. Dream is also nice, but I prefer a stronger highlight. I would love to see some highlight shades from this range - pale gold, yellow gold, rose gold and bronze.

PS. I had to put little stickers on the bottom of each stick, because I might forget the names in the future.

L-R: Dream, Matte Dream, Rush, Matte Rush, Pink, Matte Pink, Malibu, Matte Malibu.
L-R: Dream, Matte Dream, Pink, Matte Pink.
L-R: Rush, Matte Rush, Malibu, Matte Malibu.
L-R: Dream, Rush, Pink, Malibu
L-R: Matte Dream, Matte Rush, Matte Pink, Matte Malibu.
Overall the new Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks are great value for money and I would definitely recommend getting a couple of shades. My top picks are Rush and Matte Pink.

Available from and some Supedrug stores.
