17 Oh so Spring! Cheek Stamp Blusher Review

I first saw this blusher featured on All That Slap a few weeks ago and got hopelessly over excited at the idea of stamp on makeup, I think it might be the child in me coming to the surface. In short though, I KNEW I had to have one.
The idea is a simple one, the product comes as a powder pan blusher with a screw on lid, however, instead of coming with a brush like some blushers do, this product comes with a rounded sponge built in to the lid that springs up as you unscrew the top. There's also a handy little mirror on the lid of the product which means that you can easily stamp and blend whilst on the go.
The product is amazingly easy to use; you just stamp on to the apple of the cheek and blend with your fingers to get a soft, spring ready colour. Before blending you do look like a badly painted china doll, or maybe a slightly more subtley toned clown but the inner child resurfaced and I just found this to be part of the novelty of the blusher.
Once blended out onto the cheeks you are left with a gorgeous soft glow that isn't too heavy. My worry was that there would still be a visible circle from the stamp however I'm happy to say that isn't the case at all. The powder is nice and finely milled and blends in very easily. I've also found that the colour is nice and long lasting on the cheeks, and still sits nicely even after a long day at work.
Price wise this is a bargain at just £4.99 and I think the fact that it is limited edition makes it feel that little bit extra special to me. You can get this blusher in two shades; pink and coral (the one shown above is coral).

What do you think of the new 17 spring blushers? Do you find the novelty of the product as exciting as I do? Have you tried them yet? I think I might have to go back and get the pink version...and possibly hoard another of the coral!

  4. This looks lovely, it's definitely going on my wish list! I imagine it'd be great for travelling, too, with not needing a separate brush.
