So I got this blush BY 3 palette for Christmas.  Let’s just say…..this is amazing!!!! I usually dip my toe in instead of diving in when it comes to blush.  Not because I am afraid, but many brands don’t pack that punch that I need for it to show up.

This British drugstore brand really impressed me.  Talk about pigmentation!  I got the colour 366 Pink Sprint, which contains 3 shades of pink.

The texture is amazing, as a matter of fact; I think this is a good dupe for NARS blushes, with respect to quality.  Highly pigmented, very smooth, finely milled texture that’s not chalky or too stiff.  And they are all matte!  The packaging is great for travel as it comes in a sleek black case with a large mirror.

Pink Sprint comes in 3 colours:

L to R: Pink Parfait, Pink Ice, Pinktini

Pink Parfait – deep plum matte shade, with a strong red undertone.

Pink Parfait

It’s great colour, maybe more ideal for cooler weather (but you know I don’t follow the rules!).  M.A.C.’s Dirty Plum is less red.

Pink Ice – An intense, intense cool fuchsia pink matte shade.

Pink Ice – appears so much brighter in person!

Gorgeous!!  This is what drew me to the palette.  I love this.  I would make this the star of the show.  Bright cheeks and just keep the rest of the face pretty neutral, maybe a cool bronze shadow.  It’s similar to M.A.C.’s Full Fuchsia.

Pinktini – a plum matte shade that is pinker and less red that Pink Parfait.

Pinktini

It is actually quite similar and it leans warmer.

I use a light application and build up to the intensity I need.  I recommend using a duo fibre brush or a kabuki brush like the NARS Yachiyo Kabuki brush.  A little goes a long way.  These blushes applied smoothly and did not skip or become patchy on my dry spots.   This palette works very well on tan, medium to deep skin tones.   Go full on with these colours, especially with Pink Ice.  Paler skin tones could apply lightly.

This is a great quality, professional level product, a great buy and I would highly recommend.  You get 3 full sized blushes for about US$13.  It’s available in the UK at drugstores like Superdrug and it is also available online.  I think they ship internationally, but I need to double-check that.

Overall Grade: A+
