Review: Blush Quad by City Color


My international giveaway is still opened! Click Here




Left to Right


Have you ever gone into a store that you never expected to sell make up to then find that it did sell make up? Well this is what happened when I walked into Five Below. Never did I think that Five Below would sell make up. While peeking around, I spotted this blush quad. The colors in it looked super summery and it was only 4 dollars. I thought 4 dollars for 4 blushes is such a great bargain. I decided to get it and I ended up being really impressed with such an inexpensive find.

The packaging is pretty basic. It is a black plastic case with 4 see through parts over the 4 blushes. It also has a really thin mirror on the inside which I think is pretty useless for applying blush. However the packing does the job it is meant to do and is pretty sturdy.  It is a bit hard to open but I think that is just because it is fairly new. The colors are all perfect for summer. There is a bright barbie pink one, a shimmery coral orange one, a deeper pink one and a bronzy gold one. I think this palette is great for traveling because the colors are so versatile. The formula is surprisingly nice for a 4 dollar palette. They are very pigmented and apply nicely with a stippling brush. They go on smoothly but the lasting power is not the best. I say about 4 hours before the colors fades but for 4 dollars I am not complaining. The one thing that really annoys me is the smell. They smell like little girl make up if you know what I mean. The smell does not transfer to your skin so it only smells like this in the pan. I think for the price, this is a great steal. It is definitely nice for adding a bit of variety into your blush collection and it is a good starter for those who are new to blushes. This was a great find!

What bargain make up you have found?

Lots of Love,
Rena

  1. This is sooo beyond pretty! All the colours are gorgeous and perfect for summer. I love the one on the far left its so shimmery and pretty. 4 dollars is an absolute bargain, and the packaging is so sleek that even if they do rub off you're able to just fit it in your handbag and top up throughout the day :) really want this in my makeup collection!

  3. Thanks for the review! I'm not sure if I will pick this up because of the scent, I don't like my products to smell. Such a shame, because the color looks SO pretty!

  6. The colors look great! I have had great luck with dollar makeup in terms of blushes. They're usually really pigmented. I agree, most smell and who know's what ingredients are in them but, oh well. x
