Cup of Reviews: I Heart Makeup – Blushing Hearts Triple Baked Blush in Peachy Pink Kisses

Hi Buttercups,

Do you remember my previous review of I Heart Makeup – the unicorn blush? As you will recall (or you don’t, in that case you can read it here ;D), I wasn’t really crazy about the blue-ish frost on my cheek bones. However, this brand has come out with so many different products and even if there’s knock offs of some bigger brands, they seem to have nice pigmentation. I saw this blush in promotion, and that usually is my soft spot for picking up things I wasn’t really planning to buy haha! But yeah, it happened anyway…

The Packaging

Very similar to the Too Faced heart blushes. I’m not a fan of these types of packaging, because it takes up so much space and you need to find storage room for these bulky boes. The plastic container on the inside of the cardboard box has the tendency to detach from the bottom, so you have to be careful to open it straight and not in an angled way, because the blush could fall out… Thus the packaging is so cheap…

The normal price is about 5.99€ at Kruidvat.

The Shade

I can’t really understand why you’d call this a blush. When I swatch the shades separately or together it just looks like a highlighter, a damn frosty one at that… I wouldn’t have a problem with this product if it were to be called a highlighter. But if you call this a blush, I kind of expect it to be more pigmented…

In the picture below, you have the 3 shades individually swatched. And the last swatch is a mix of the 3.

How did it perform?

It performed liked it swatched: nice soft texture, nice blendability but oh so frosty… It barely has pigmentation and just looks like highlighter…

For me this is a second failure, I just don’t like this product, though I have to say, the texture is really nice. I might try out the eyeshadows in the future, but I’m going to stay away from these heart shaped cardboard boxes. They haven’t convinced me so far…

Have you tried this one yet? What do you think?

Love,

Sarah

      Indeed cute, but I prefer compact packaging. I don’t have much storage in my house and it just lies around. I used to like to display my stuff. Now that I’m older, I like to put things away hahah!! Thx for dropping by!! xoxo Sarah
