Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks

Thursday, November 20, 2014
Makeup Revolution have been so generous to bloggers, including me, recently! I have been almost overwhelmed by the new releases and the quality of the new products! I was sent the full range of blush sticks, there are eight in total - four of which are matte and the others are shiny/slightly glossy. 

I have all eight of the *Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks (£5 each). I love the packaging, it looks so sleek and professional as well as durable and practical. The ply problem I have with the packaging is that the shade name isn't on the tube, it is only on the cardboard packaging! 

There are four matte shades and four glossier shades, all of which can be used on either the cheeks or lips. I used the 'matte malibu' shade in a previous post - my five product face (here). I thought I would like the matte blush sticks more but I have definitely been using the glossier sticks more. Here are the swatches and my thoughts.

I find the matte shades are more pigmented than the others, they are also a little bit cakey on the lips whereas the non-matte shades are less so. They all apply smoothly, they are creamy to touch and they can be worn sheer or more vibrant on the lips or cheeks. I would use them more on the cheeks than lips but it is a great multi-purpose product, in my opinion. 

My favourites shades have to be 'matte malibu', 'rush and 'matte rush' all of which would be gorgeous for the autumn/winter months as they are quite warm, natural shades. My least favourite is the 'matte dream' shade which looks too milky on my skin and I find that it washes me out. 

Overall, I am very impressed with the Makeup Revolution The One Blush Stick, a few bloggers have compared them to the Nars Multiples! I think they are fantastic, especially for the price and I think they will last for a long time. 

Have you tried the Makeup Revolution The One Blush Sticks? If so, what do you think of them? 


  1. I haven't tried any of these but as soon as I can find them in store somewhere I'd like to pick up Matte Malibu. It seems like one of those products that will just come in handy! I'd like it for contouring really, I wanted one from Nars but I think the Makeup Rev shades might actually work better on my skin. I really loved your photos in this post :) xx
