Here’s a really quick review on my current favourite blush/bronze duo. I’ve been using this for months and I’ve already been hitting pan on this baby.
I bought Sephora’s Blush Me Twice months ago, thinking that it was going to be something that’s worth my money having these two must-haves for a price that’s only a wee bit higher than if I were getting a full-sized blush from the same brand.
The shades that this compact comes with are brown and apricot.
Brown is a dark-tanned coloured powder that has a matte finish while Apricot is peachy-pink with a slight sheen from the fine golden glitter in the powder.
I love how buildable both shades are – light with the potential for a bit of intensity, depending on the look you are going for. I usually opt for a natural looking flush and just a bit of bronzer to counter my naturally pale complexion and this duo lets me get that quite effortlessly.
It also lasts quite long on me – around 6 hours when I’m indoors and 3 hours when I’m under the crazy heat of the Malaysian sun.
Cost: Between RM48-RM68 (lost the receipt, sorry!).
The only 2 cons: The compact doesn’t have it’s own mirror. I’ve only seen it being sold in Sephora Starhill Gallery in Bukit Bintang. Weirdly enough, other branches in Malaysia don’t seem to have it. But it’s definitely worth the trip there (which for me means a 5 minute walk – but if you live quite far, I’d still say it’s worth it)
Will I repurchase? Definitely!
Here are some photos of me wearing Sephora’s Blush Me Twice Duo in Versatile No 2:
So much of my face right up there! LOL. Hope you guys aren’t too tired of it yet! But really, I just wanted to show you guys how good it is. Some of those photos were taken after a long day and you can see that the blush and bronzer are still intact!
Anyway, I promised to keep this short as my husband is already asleep and I just wanted to stay true to my promise of being on time when it comes to posting. 😉 So I’ll close with this:
If you’re looking for a way to liven up your look for the day without breaking the bank, this one is a really good product. Lasts you quite long as well! Been using my Blush Me Twice Duo for 6 months now and I think this will still last me three months more with at least twice a week of use. Definitely a thrifty girl’s BFF. Doesn’t take up too much space in your on-the-go makeup bag too.
