Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades in Blushalicious

 Looking at this picture, I'd never have picked this for an affordable drugstore blush. Each generous square is richly pigmented with fine shimmer and brings to mind Givenchy's Le Prisme Powder Blushes or Jill Stuart's Mix Blush Compact (this review is really really funny by the way).

But not only is it from the drugstore, it's one of the most affordable brands you can find there:

This picture is way too warm, check the above image for more true to life shades 
At only about HKD60 this blush is a steal beyond words. Here's why:

The shades cover the ENTIRE blush spectrum of cool, berry, neutral highlight and peach and each square is large enough to use on its own. Blended together you get one of those complex pinky shades, rather like a brighter Benefit's Hervana. This makes it awesome for travel as you're never missing a particular colour.

(L_R) Peachy, Neutral, Berry and Pink
The blush shades are really pigmented so a little touch goes a long long way.

The packaging is sturdy clear plastic that will travel well and is reminiscent of Shu Uemura.

And finally, Queen Lisa Eldridge herself used it in this tutorial:

Nuff said?
