MUA Mosaic Blush in English Rose | Review



Hey girlie's!!!

I stumbled across this blush on the MUA stand in Superdrug recently, now I've never seen this mosaic style blush on the MUA stand in my Superdrug before, they've always had the bronzers but never the blush so considering it was a bargain of only £2.50 i thought it would be rude not to try it, so i made a cheeky purchase. 

I chose 'English Rose' which i believe to be the only mosaic style blush MUA do, it contains lots of little segments and within each segment are different shades of pink with the odd lilac shade thrown into the mix, all the shades within the mosaic have a pearl/shimmer finish with no matte or glitter particles running through any of the little segments at all.

For me, i prefer to use this blush as a highlighter, it leaves too much of a pearl finish for me to use as a blush but it makes the most gorgeous pink toned highlighter, it really reminds me of a powder version of Benefits High Beam. When i swirled my finger around all the segments for a swatch the pigmentation does look quite strong but when used with a brush it goes on alot more sheer and shimmery therefore giving you more of a highlight affect however... If you like a shimmery blush then this would look really pretty once you've built up some colour.

As for the packaging... It doesn't really differ from most of the MUA range, its cheap and cheerful and does the job although as with the little £1 blushes i do find the packaging difficult to open, there's certainly no chance that they will open in your handbag that's for sure. All in all i do really like the blush used as a highlight, its really pretty and certainly affordable. Have your tried any of the MUA Mosaic Range??? What did you think???

  1. I think for the price this is fab, even if you use it for everyday and save a another slightly more expensive one for going out/weekends/events etc! Can't beat MUA for prices.

  3. Looks like a great highlighter for the price. Haven't tried any MUA products before, because we don't have them here, but it sounds like a really good affordable brand.
