Online shopping is the bomb-diggity. There’s no pressure from pushy sales assistants, you have all the time in the world to do price comparisons and read reviews, plus you don’t have to wear pants! Luxola also stocks brands that don’t have a great presence in brick-and-mortar stores in Australia, like Mirenesse, Sleek and Wet ‘n Wild, so when they asked me if I’d like to try some of their blushes out, I jumped at the chance!
Mirenesse Marble Mineral Blush in Paros Pink ($60.99 for 12 g) – The marbled pattern is gorgeous in the pan, and it smells of rose – it’s easy to see why this has fantastic reviews everywhere! Paros Pink is a little light for me to use alone, but it makes for a lovely cool pink highlight over the blush, with a pretty sheen that isn’t too sparkly.
Sleek Blush in Rose Gold ($15.25 for 8 g) – This is a warm peachy pink with gold shimmer. On lighter skin this would be decently pigmented, but just like the Mirenesse blush, I mostly just get golden glow on my face. It’s a really pretty glow though, so I’m not complaining!
Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher in Berry Shimmer ($9.05 for 4 g) – This is SO PIGMENTED it’s ridiculous! You need to use a really light hand with this, but it’s a really pretty colour, and luckily if you put too much on you can save it with some regular powder and a big foofy brush.
Swatches from left to right: Mirenesse Marble Mineral Blush in Paros Pink, Sleek Blush in Rose Gold and Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher in Berry Shimmer.
