Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette
This palette is ultimate heart eyes emoji. Encased in beautiful white sturdy packaging with gold dots, with four beautiful blush shades, a highlighter and a bronzer inside. I have been using the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette ever since I received it for my birthday - it's just gorgeous! The entire GS range is stunning - I really want to get my hands on a lipstick/lip liner duo.
Cherry is a bright blue-toned pink with tiny bits of shimmer in it, to create a subtle glow on your cheeks. I love the way that this blusher makes your complexion look: healthy and glowy. It looks slightly daring in the pan but, once applied, looks gorgeous and is so easy and comfortable to wear.
Easy is one of my current faves, like seriously, this blusher is beautiful. An almost pomegranate rosey pink with golden shimmer, I can see this working especially well for Autumn seasons. As Easy is quite dark, it looks scary to apply, particularly as it is so pigmented. However it looks gorgeous on the skin and actually quite natural!
Angel is definitely more of a highlighter than a blush, but for darker skin tones could work as both. It is a slightly dark gold shimmery colour that looks lovely and subtle on the cheekbones. I don't pick this over my Mary Lou, but when I just want to use the whole palette, this works a dream.
Again, not really a blusher. Lo-Fi is a gorgeous matte bronzer that somehow gives an insane amount of glow and life to your complexion. It could look a bit orange toned on super pale skin tones, however on my skin it works well.
Hush is the shade that instantly caught my eye when I initially opened this palette. Like, whoa, this shade though! I'm not entirely sure how to describe it: a medium pink with gold shimmer and slight peachy tones to it. Hush is definitely a star in this palette and also one of my faves.
Finally we have OC. This blusher is strangely slightly less pigmented than the other five shades, which is strange as they are so buttery and pigmented. OC is a soft peachy orange shade that looks so natural and beautiful on the skin.
Do you own anything from the GS range?
