I'm not really one to go for blushers, but I thought I would give this one a try. This was a free gift after spending £5 on the brand Seventeen, in Boots. So, why would I not try it out?

First thing I have to say is that this blusher is such a natural looking tone. The shade I have is called 'The Cheek Of It'. The main reason that I usually avoid blusher is because I don't really like the blushed cheeks look. I remember the disasters I had with them when I was younger. I thought I looked good, but realistically I looked like I was constantly over-heated or embarrassed. It just wasn't a good look, as you can imagine. I don't think you can go over-the-top as such with this blusher because it is so natural looking. I mean, of course you can add far too much on, but if you accidentally put slightly too much on, it's easy to blend in and it is not the end of the world. I think it is the perfect blusher because it comes with a stamp which you just stamp onto your cheek. It only applies a bit of blush powder per stamp, so you would have to continually stamp to add too much.

This is definitely going to be my go-to blusher for the Autumn. It has little bits of shimmery glitter that help to highlight the apples of my cheeks, which I love at the moment because I love the highlighted cheeks look. It is also extremely easy to apply as you just stamp it onto the apples of your cheeks and then blend with a brush. I especially love a highlighted look in Autumn when the days are getting cold and dull. Can't go wrong with a matte base and highlighted cheeks. This is the moment when I also recommend another product from Seventeen...their highlighter is flawless!

I find that packaging and appearance is also very important for this product. I absolutely love the sponge stamp applicator that it comes with; it is the perfect size for the apples of my cheeks. I also love the mirror on top of the pot. A mirror always comes in handy. Even the little box it comes in is very pretty and I can't bring myself to throw it away. I think I will just use it as a 'protector' (don't make me throw it away). The actual blusher pot is plastic but it doesn't feel 'tacky' at all; it is brilliant quality! To close it you just have to push it together (it has a springy feel) and then twist it to secure it. The blusher is at the top of the pot (beneath the mirror) so when you twist it to close or open it, it picks up the perfect amount of blusher. Such a convenient product and the perfect hand bag size.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. I wasn't that keen on the other shades they had because they were a lot more extreme (bright pinks, pale pinks and browns), but this shade is perfect. I was quite lucky to get mine actually. There was only a few pots left in stock and I managed to get an unopened one which was the perfect shade.

What is your favourite blusher?
