Firstly a little bit of an apology for my lack of blogging over the last week. I've been rather poorly and haven't had the time to swatch or write anything due to mostly being stuck in bed! But hopefully you'll get some regular posts over the next few weeks as I'm determined to get well.
I discovered these beauties a little while ago now. You've probably already heard a ton on these products, but I'd always been a little bit of a brand snob and never really bothered taking a proper look at the Accessorize range. How silly was i?! Whilst at a student shopping night in my local town center i had a little swatch and was gobsmacked! I quickly fell in love with the colours and textures of their blushes, and quickly went back and purchased another! I'm ashamed to say these are actually my FIRST baked blushes and bronzers and I'm baffled as to why i didn't try them sooner.
Wowzer is a bright candy pink with lilac veins which looks quite scary in the pan and swatched but looks absolutely gorgeous on the skin! Scandal is my favourite of the two, i had a little difficulty trying to describe the actual colour. Some say its a "mid toned pink" but i personally feel it leans slightly coral/red on me, but i really am rubbish with descriptions! Both these have a frosty finish which is great for skipping highlighter and the pigmentation is great. I really love the texture of both these blushes. Blush is one thing that generally really annoys me and i find i have to apply throughout the day, but these last a good eight hours on the skin which for me is great.
Above heavy swatches then blended out.
Pearl sands is as far as I'm aware is the lightest out of their bronzers. Like the blushes it's very pigmented and has a frosty finish which isn't ideal for contouring. I love quite a bit of shimmer so it really doesn't bother me. Being ghostly pale i really do have to use a light hand with this but I've really been enjoying using the lighter half of the duo.
As i said before I'd always been a little bit of a brand snob when it comes to Accessorize and i thought that the items would be a lot more expensive. The Blushes are a mere £5 each and the Bronzers £6 or £7 which i think is fantastic! You can easily pay £10 for a "Drugstore" blush nowadays. The packaging also makes me product look more expensive in my opinion.
The only downside is not really being able to get hold of them online. The Accessorize website only stocks one (as far as i could see), same as the Superdrug website. But if you are close to either stores I'd really recommend having a look!
Thanks for reading!
