How have you all been ?If you are in the USA, I hope you all had a great July 4th weekend 😀 Anyway, I have been testing out this palette for the past few weeks since I got it and I think I have able to grasp most of the pros and cons.
Sephora Bronzed and Blushing Face Palette ($15 USD)
From the Sephora website, it says :
This three-in-one, portable palette features stunning hues for a variety of daytime and nighttime looks. Each head-turning shade is buildable to help you create the perfect color for your skintone. Bestselling Los Cabos Bronzer delivers a nautral-looking sun-kissed glow, Blushing Pink Blush is the ultimate rosy pink for a pretty pop of color, and the Coral Punch Blush gives the apples of your cheeks a nice punch for that sweet summer touch. Wear each shade alone or together depending on your desired look, and use the included mirror for on-the-go touch ups.
Bronzer : Los Cabos
Center Blush : Blushing Pink
Right Blush : Coral Punch
Los Cabos Bronzer :
This is a great bronzer for contouring. It is matte and there isn’t an overbearing orange tone to it. I am a MAC NC20 to NC25 and I felt that this is a very natural looking contour shade for my skin tone. It blends out nicely. It lasted through the heat and humidity in NYC the past week. I hear that this bronzer is a dupe for the Laguna bronzer by Nars. So for those who are interested, they do sell this for $17 by itself. I don’t think that this color will show up on everyone though. My friend with a MAC NC 40 tried to use it and it did not show up at all.
This was the color I was a bit disappointed with. In the pan, it looks quite bright and seemed pigmented but when swatched it is not the case. It is still a lovely color for natural every day look though. Be careful when you are building it up though, it can get a bit chalky. I got around 5-6 hours of wear from this product.
This color is very very pigmented, coral punch indeed. Be careful when you dab your brush in as a little goes a long way. I find that this color leans more towards a reddish pink as compared to a coral but it is still a very pretty color. I find that this a great summer blush, giving up a lovely pop of color. This color lasted the longest, around 7 hours of wear.
. Compact, very travel friendly.
. Sturdy. I dropped this couple of times by accident and everything has held up fine.
. Pigmented. ( for the most part )
.Easy to blend.
. Natural Looking
. Inexpensive $15 for two blushes and a bronzer is an amazing deal.
.Mirror is a decent size, making it great for on-the -go.
. Bronzer may not show up on darker skintones.
. Blushing Pink can get a tad chalky when you build it up too much.
Overall, I really do like this palette from Sephora. I think this would be a great set to give to those who are just starting out in makeup. After using this, it makes me want to check out a few more Sephora products. They have some really nice products. Anyway, have you tried this product ?Do you like it ?
