This quickly became my favourite blush & bronzer last year. The texture is very fine and blendable. Pigmentation is just right—not overpowering, but also not sheer—it’s buildable. The shade Light 100 flatters my light-medium skin tone very well and gives me that lightly sun-kissed glow. I also love how I can use the colours individually or swirl my brush around to get a mixed shade.

The bronzer shades are matte which I prefer. Some people like shimmer in their bronzer, but I personally don’t think it looks natural. I would advise against using this as contour, though; simply because the shades are very warm. It’s great for adding colour and warmth to the face, rather than dimension and definition.

The blush shade is a light, neutral pink. It does have slight shimmer in it, but I don’t mind. It registers more glowy than glittery on the skin when blended. Initially, I thought this [blush] would be too light for me, but it’s actually very nice! I love using it for that “fresh” look.

Overall, I really love this bronzer/blush and it’s a really handy product. Can’t say I would repurchase, though. I’m not a huge fan of the mosaic layout. I much prefer having separate pans of product in a palette.
