L-R Makeup Revolution Blusher in Desire and Pink Dew, Daniel Sandler in Cherub
When I first saw these blushers by Makeup Revolution I wondered how
they’d compare with Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour blushers. Initially
there’s a lot of similarities and at only £3 a pop I was keen to give
them a go. I went for Pink Dew, a very pale pink. This doesn’t work
brilliantly on me as a blusher, there’s not enough contrast but as a
highlighter it does quite a good job. I also picked Desire, a deep pink
with some shimmer. This is highly pigmented, a tiny drop is all that’s
needed. To tidy up any mess or to blend I use any left over foundation I
have on my brush. I use Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for this-
which is brilliant for flawless base application.
they dupes for Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blushers? Well, kind of. The
packaging is similar but Makeup Revolution’s is much cheaper looking
and feeling, which is to be expected really considering it only costs £3
whereas Daniel Sandler’s is £15.50.
Both blushers have a
runny consistency but Daniel Sandler’s is much easier to use. Makeup
Revolution’s is a bit unwieldy with quite a lot of slip. This means they
take a wee while to set, especially Pink Dew which is quite oily. Both
blushers need a good shake before application as there’s quite a lot of
separation in the ingredients but even more so with Makeup Revolution’s.
Finally, both have similar longevity but I think Daniel Sandler’s wears
Makeup Revolution’s The One Fluid Blushers are good
budget buys with a nice selection of colours. They’re not as
sophisticated as Daniel Sandler’s but for the price they’re worth giving
a go. If you don’t want to part with £15.50 you can try samples of
Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blushers for £2 here.
