I’m a divil for a good blush but I’m also bloody fussy. I want my blushes subtle, sexy and for the most part, shimmer free. So far, my all time favourite choices are Benefit’s Hervana and NARS Sex Appeal but I’m always game for something new to join my stash. And so that’s where the new Clarins Love Blushes have skipped merrily into my life. I was sent these a few weeks ago and I mentioned them in my recent Valentine’s post (because it would have been some sort of blasphemy to not include these heart adorned beauties) but they deserved their own little post so here it is.
I can’t actually remember the last time I did a dupes post which means I had forgotten how satisfying they are. Dupes are gold dust in blogging and it’s actually relatively hard to find a genuine 24 carat one, so I tend to rely on the dedicated bloggers out there who are essentially dupe hunters. Nowadays, budget brands saturate and often specialise in recreating cheap versions of luxury buys but, as you know yourself, a few are great, some are decent and some are down right shite. The very odd time, you’ll hit the magical unicorn dupe, the rare time when a dupe isn’t’ just as good, it’s better. So lo and behold, that’s what I have for you today.
OK so I’m in the slightly jammy position where MAC somehow think I’m worth sending products to. I’m assuming at some point they’re going to see me blabbing on about something they sent me and realise there was some horrible mistake on their press list, but for now I’m soaking up the chance to try things out. They’ve sent me a few different bits and bobs from various releases they have going on at the moment because the creative team at MAC are apparently robots and don’t need to sleep or take a moments breath. So, as I’ve a stash waiting to be reviewed from not 1 but 4 different releases, I’ve lumped them all into one review so you can see what they have on offer and what could be worth a possible splurge. Let’s get to it.
