Whilst browsing in my local Superdrug the other day, I came accross the Accessorize make up stand. I have known for quite some time that Accessorize had branched out into the cosmetic world, yet I hadn't purchased any of their offerings... Until now. These gorgeous pots of blusher found their way into my basket and into my life. The packaging is typical of Accessorize products, with the product encased in gold packaging that is adorned with butterflies and proudly displays the Accessorize logo.
These blushers are merged baked blushers and they look gorgeous in the pan!! I settled on the shades Sensation and Wowzer.
Sensation is a lovely peachy/coral colour with pink veins running through it, however once on the brush and applied to the skin, the colour is strictly peach - the pink gets totally lost! Which I don't mind as it still looks lovely!
Wowzer is scary (yet beautiful in the pan). It is a ridiculously vivid, cool-toned pink with veins of purple. Unlike Sensation, these veins of colour do not get lost and they merge with the pink to provide a gorgeous pinky-yet-slightly-purple shade. (Sorry for the terrible description but I don't know what to call it as its a shade I've never seen before..) Oh and do not be alarmed, this blush does not appear as bright on the skin as it looks in the pot - unless you have a very heavy hand!

I have currently been using Wowzer more at the moment, as I am still quite pale facially and personally I think pink cheeks and light skin is a winning combo, however I will definitely be putting Sensation into my holiday makeup regime as I think it will look lovely with a tan!
Overall, I'm really pleased with these blushers and can't understand why it has taken me so long to buy an Accessorize product - I'm definitely going to be checking out their makeup stand more frequently from now on!
Accessorize makeup is available from superdrug and from the accessorize website.
Have you ever tried any Accessorize makeup before?
