So, it is safe to say I go from one extreme to another..one moment Makeup Revolution were totally off my radar, the next, I am hands down addicted. I have been lucky enough to be trying out the Makeup Revolution 'The One' Blush Sticks.  Hello Nars iconic 'The Multiple' dupe. I've never tried the Nars ones so I won't be comparing them, but even I, noticed the resemblance. And nice price difference, 'The One' Blush Sticks a steal at £5 in comparison to the £30 for the Nars 'The Multiple'. Tough decision eh..

'The One' Blush Sticks come in four matte and four sheer colours, there's a combination of nude tones, bright pinks and bronzing shades. The matte ones are actually in a matte box, and a matte finish tube. I like the logic. Similarly, the shimmery ones are in a glossy finish box and tube. The only down side is that the tubes don't have the shade names on but at least you know if it's a glossy or matte one. But names would really help.  

The colours are the same, just matte and shimmery, a bronzer (Malibu), a shade that doubles as a highlighter (Dream), a pinky/coral shade (Rush) and a bright pink shade (Pink).

'Malibu' is the chocolate-eque colour, that has golden shimmer in it. While the matte one makes a rather good contour. Hello Kim K.

'Dream' is a super pale, almost quite pink whereas the matte version has a hint more colour and a little more warmth to it. The shimmer is a unexpected decent highlighter, and the matte version is a lovely blush. And yes, I have been wearing pink blush. Shock horror.

'Pink' is a much more barbie pink whereas 'Matte pink' is a more coral shade. Both are lovely, just a bit bright for my non-daring colour phobe self. 

'Rush' is an orangey/coral shade with gold glitter in it and 'Matte Rush' is a much deeper, more dense shade. This would be great on darker skin tones I would imagine, but I am yet too scared to get this past the swatch on my arm.

While I am talking swatches, this showed how long wearing they were, and as I found out they don't removed with just water. Makeup remover is needed. On to my face, I have been wearing ' Matte Malibu' and 'Matte Dream' daily (pictured in fact), and I am so impressed with how creamy they are too blend it, and they look way more natural than I ever expected cream blushes too appear. Saying that, until these arrived on my doorstep, pink blushers were such a scare they never made it on my face. And now look at me, pink blush AND 'budget' makeup?
