I cannot say this enough – BLUSH IS MY KRYPTONITE and I own, what seems like, a gajillion blushes.
Despite that, I had serious #FOMO (side note: Ellen Degeneres explains FOMO perfectly well here) with regards to the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette, because it was everywhere! I finally saw it in the Sephora here in Dubai the other day, and I was sold!
The packaging was so gorgeous to look at, and hold, and the blushes are each a good size. I was expecting the price to be around AED360 ($100), which is what the NARS palettes sell for here, but considering that it was AED200 (closer to $50), I thought this was a good buy! Each blush contains 0.09oz of product.
I have been using this for about 3-4 days now, and I find the formula of the blushes really soft and blendable. The palette also comes with a good mix of pinks (matt and shimmer), bronze, and the highlight shade (Angel, top right) is absolutely gorgeous! I find the blushes to be long lasting, too (about 6-7 good hours)
I love the magnetic packaging of the actual palette, and the gold and black box it comes in too!
The only con I have seen is that there is a bit of fall-out when you dip your brush into the pan, but I have this varying depending on the brush I use.
I won’t say that this is a MUST HAVE, but considering this is a limited edition, I will say that you will definitely not regret this purchase.
I am really enjoying mine! x
