The Gwen Stefani Blush Palette

When one of your favourite brands collaborates with one of your favourite artists, it's hard not to get over excited. When Urban Decay released the Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette back in 2015, the whole beauty world exploded with excitement. I shared my full review back in December and I can't help but love the beautiful array of shades included in the palette, but it's the latest Gwen collection releases which have me the most excited, especially the stunning new blush palette featuring 6 stunning powders perfect for any season, wearable on a huge array of complexions.

The Gwen Stefani Blush Palette has the same beautiful design as the eyeshadow palette, packaging designed to Gwen's exact specifications, the collection has been inspired by her love for black and white graphic designs with the added beauty of antique gold touches. As far as palettes go, the palettes in this collection are my favourite packaging wise, and I have my fair share of palettes! They are incredibly well made, very sturdy and robust, completely standing out from not only other brands in my beauty stash, but all other Urban Decay palettes I own. 

The palette is advertised as a blush palette but actually houses 6 blush, bronze and highlight shades, each versatile enough to be used on a variety of complexions. If you've ever tried any Urban Decay cheek products you'll know the formula is as beautiful as their infamous shadow range; buttery soft finely milled powders that are a dream to apply and exceptionally easy to blend to a natural and flattering finish. Each has been formulated in the same way as my favourite Afterglow range, providing up to 8 hours of wearable colour that doesn't budge or fade throughout the day.

Cherry is a cool toned soft pink which has the slightest pearly sheen, Easy is a medium rosy plum with cool undertones and a lovely golden frost finish, both are beautiful blushes for a flush of colour. Angel is a lovely medium champagne shade with a frost sheen which makes a lovely highlight, Lo-Fi is a soft matte bronze which has the slightest orange undertone, so probably not the best for pale skin but perfect for a warm summer glow. Hush is a medium pink with a warm copper flash and frost finish, whilst OC is a peach with warm yellow undertones and a gorgeous pink opalescent finish. Each has very good pigmentation, the colour pay off is wonderful and considering you get 6 huge powders in a stunning palette for £35, well it's a bit of a winner for me.

If the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Collection has caught your eye but you're not sure what to invest in, I'd say go for this palette. It's my favourite blush palette in my beauty stash and is by far the winning piece in this stand-out collection.

  1. I LOVE it! I've used it so much these past few months, although mine looks nothing like yours! It's all dirty due to the black background which is my only criticism

  3. I really need to pick this up before it's gone! I love that it has so many neutral and peachy tones to it, as I much prefer them to pinks. Saying that, the two pink shades are stunning, too!

  5. Hmmm... I was so underwhelmed when I saw the palette in the store. Sure it swatched nicely but the colours looked pretty boring and bland. I have mediterranean skin and I couldn't imagine most of the colours really working for my complexion.

    1. I'm olive complexion wise (Cypriot) and find every shade works very well for me! Although when it comes to blush and highlight I like to apply lightly, and the bronze shade is lovely for an all-over light glow. You must be quite darker than me, as each shows up perfectly fine on my skin. I wonder if any brands do palettes like this for darker complexions? xo

  7. I was so underwhelmed with the eye shadow palette ( not because it isn't good but because it wasn't anything new for me) that I had not even noticed they came out with a blush palette! Thanks for the info!

    best,

    1. The eyeshadow is lovely but definitely not a must-have, in my opinion! Like you said, nothing new for me either, but great if you're a palette addict. Let me know if you decide to check out the blush palette :) xo
