The MUA £1 Blushers* have such a following that my local Superdrug struggle to keep them in stock, which is the reason I've never tried these bargainous beauties before! Shade 4 is one of 6 blushers in their original blush collection, back in 2013 they added some more, named shades to their blush range which I'm a big fan of too and have reviewed here.
Priced at just £1 these are for sure the best value blush offerings on the high street and considering the price, definitely do not skimp on quality! Shade 4 is an absolutely gorgeous apricot-rose tone on my fair complexion with a very, very subtle micro shimmer throughout. It has great colour pay off so a light hand is needed but blends out with ease. It wears a good six hours on me without fading and the shimmer in it is so fine it doesn't sit in my pores or accentuate my dryness. As you can tell it gets a big thumbs up from me!
On the skin there was something that really reminded me of my beloved Orgasm blush (pictured below next to a mini duo i own due to my fall size having well and truly hit pan and looking rather grubby) although from swatches i can see that the MUA offering is a tad more peachy / apricot. Shade 4 has such a lovely sheen that during the day I've been skipping highlighter all together but for evening wear my Mary Lou Manizer by The Balm has been my highlight of choice to pair with this, it is absolutely stunning!
Below the swatches of Shade 4 between Nars Orgasm Blush and Nars Deep Throat, to me this one falls somewhere in the middle of the two, although my DT blush doesn't tend to swatch very well. The MUA offering swatches a little more intense than the other two, but looks gorgeous on the cheek. I've found this to be a very versatile blush that can easily be dressed up or down and I've been reaching for it other my other blushes every day this week. It makes a wonderful summer colour!
Nars Orgasm - MUA Shade 4 - Nars Deep Throat
Overall this blush gets a definite stamp of approval from me! So much so that i will be keeping an eye on my local Superdrug store to see if i can catch any of the other shades in stock. I really do think MUA have some of the best blushes on the high street, regardless of their teeny tiny price the quality is great and I've adored every single one I've tried so far!
