What did you think? I’ve seen products like this before—they have multiple colors that are supposed to blend together when you apply them—but have never used them. I’ve always been concerned that the colors won’t blend properly or that the overall look may appear uneven when applied to both sides of the face. Nevertheless, I decided to give this a go.
To be fair, I’ve been using expensive blush lately, so I’ve become used to a great texture and highly concentrated color. I admit I had low expectations for this product. And, when I opened it up and found a winky-dink brush, my already low expectations seemed a little high. At first I thought I would try the brush they gave me, even though I knew better. The instant I swept the cheap-o brush over the palette of pinks, whites and corals, stray hairs came out of the base. Just as I suspected—I would have to break out my good blush brush to give this a fair testing.
The final verdict? Despite some of my postings here, I really do like Neutrogena’s products and philosophies about beauty and skin care. This product, however, was disappointing. There are a lot of blushes and bronzers on the market, and I’m sure that for $13, you could find a better one than this. Hell, Sephora, Bare Escentuals, Urban Decay, Stila, and LORAC all offer blushes under $20. I’ve even tried and liked Ulta’s blush, and it only cost $4.00.
Bottom line: Save your money and your cheeks and stay away from this clunker of a product.
