As you will know from my other posts, I'm a huge fan of Pixi by Petra, even moreso now that I can easily get hold of it at my local M&S beauty department. I'm currently reviewing my blusher collection as I seem to only have a couple that I use on a regular basis but one is sometimes too pink, it depends how pale I am that day (or how I've done my make up!). What I wanted was a blush that gives a nice glow on days where I need something subtle but isn't too shimmery.
I have to say that the thing that drew me to this blush was the fact that it came beautifully packaged in a box with it's own little kabuki brush. I never normally use these brushes but frankly this one is just cute and is so soft it just glides across your face. I also like the fact that it's a "half and half" one half blush colour the other a highlighter. I chose Rose Gold as that's the one that I thought would suit my skin best but there are other colours as well.
It's such a lovely product, the effect is really pretty, particularly when twinned with the Amazing Radiance Cream from Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely (I keep meaning to review this!). There is a shimmer in beauty blush product but not too much and you can easily build it up to the colour you want. I also found that it stayed on which I was super happy about because I find that I nearly always have to top up my blusher during the day (I probably need a fixing spray - mental note next time I go shopping).
