Smashbox Blush Rush in Radiance aka HOLY CRAP IT'S HOT PINK

I for one am a huge blusher girl. I wear it every single day and can't NOT wear it. 
I think without it my face looks flat, sickly and dull. 
It immediately brightens up your face and adds a bit of colour to your cheeks.
Every time I visited my local Smashbox counter I admired this particular blush but never considered buying it as it was so bright but I still thought it was gorgeous.

 While buying a Smashbox foundation (review here btw) the lovely lady at the counter decided to go ahead and give me a mini makeover with a lot of other products (in the end I bought most of them!) including this blush. When I saw her pick it up I nearly ran out the door but once she showed me in the mirror I was impressed! 

 The swatch on the left is one swipe! Look at that pigmentation!
The swatch on the right is the blush blended out. As you can see it just gives a slight flush of pink, I only added a little but you can build it up to the colour you like. 

I really want to add more Smashbox blushers to my collection. Although they are expensive I think they are definitely worth it. 

You can buy Smashbox blushers online here for £19.00 although because Radiance looks A LOT lighter/paler on the website than it does in real life I'd recommend googling swatches or photos from people who already have it before buying to avoid getting an unexpected colour!

If you are not from the UK or would prefer to shop instore, you can find your local stockist here 
PLEASE NOTE IRISH GIRLS: you need to select 'Ireland' not 'IRELAND' as the capitalised version only shows the stockists in Dublin. The lower case will allow you to choose your county.

Have you ever picked up a really bright blusher only to discover its actually VERY wearable??

  1. That's a beautiful shade. Elf cosmetics have a bright pink in their studio range which looks lovely on the skin

  2. I have a Smashbox counter in my local Boots now :) x
