    Okay When I 1st swatched these blushes, I found them to be rather lackluster on my hand, but I discovered otherwise on the cheeks…on to the review……

    1st-Angelic (shimmering champagne): I found that this gave a very soft glow used as a highlighter, it was subtle and finely milled which I feel attributes to the ethereal effect.

    2nd-fantastic (soft f fuchsia): Now this one was the least pigmented on my skin tone, maybe it’s due to the matte quality of the blush, and as with matte shadows, they require some building which is true for this blush, but one to the desired coverage as I missed it with the Angelic one for a pinky highlighter color.

    3rd-magic (pink coral): Magic is my most favorite out of this set as I am a sucker for a coral blush, and this one is of great pigmentation and quality, it is soft to the touch and it is blendable and buildable as well.  It will give you that beautiful radiant natural blush look. Love it!

    4th-Stellar (shimmering nude): Now this shade for me was the least favorite for me as it does have a glitter effect which I do not care for it in.  It is not the sheeny glow but rather sparkle glow, which doesn’t look natural on anyone.  I f it wasn’t for the glitter I would find it to be a very beautiful natural earth tone blush shade.

    I give this set an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars as I take away one for the glitter quality of Stellar.
    Okay
