The eBay blush palette

By now many of you have probably read about the infamous eBay blush palette. A palette which boasts ten different blush shades, in various pink and coral shades. The great thing about this palette? It costs 99p! The risk? It comes from China and takes nearly three weeks to land on your doorstep! But as you've probably guessed, I took the gamble!

The ten shades in this palette vary from light pinks through to more vibrant pinks, pale yellows to bright corals. All of the shades are matte shades, not a sparkle or glimmer in sight, which is just how I like my blushers, thank you please!

My palette took roughly 15 days to arrive and I must admit, I was dubious as to whether it would be any good at all, not forgetting the fact that it was coming from China, a whooping 8,621 miles (that's a really, really long way, by the way!) I was worried it may arrive broken, with the blushes in pieces or grumbled away. Suffice to say I was thankful to see it arrived in one piece (or ten, to be exact) and carefully bubble wrapped and packaged, making it's long journey a safe and cosy one.

I haven't always liked blushes, in fact it's only in the past few month's that I have made a concious effort to wear blush more often, adding a few products here and there to my ever growing make up collection. I am Cypriot, so I have a naturally tanned complexion and sometimes I am not overly confident wearing blush, often sticking to bronzer. This palette is perfect for blush-beginners, to avid, every day blush wearers and I am really impressed with the quality of each shade.

The shades are all matte, are really soft and easy to blend. Some have a light coverage, but are easily build-able, whereas other shades are bright enough to be used with the slightest touch. You can use each shade alone, or by layering a few of your favourites! There's such a great variety throughout the whole palette!

Would I recommend this blush palette? Definitely! It's a fantastic little bargain at just 99p plus £3 post and packaging. For ten blushers in such a variety of shades, you really can't go wrong!
