Blush Crush: Urban Decay NAKED Flushed Palette
I have a love-hate relationship with blush. I have tested countless blushes—from the cheap-ish brands to the high-end, crazy expensive ones—but have yet to really find the one. Until recently, that is.
While I was roaming the isles of Ulta on the search for a new mascara-- voila. I found it. No, not the mascara. But the ultimate face palette. I stumbled upon a beautiful new blush with the perfect pink-to-shimmer ratio.
While there are three different shades available, I went with the “STRIP,” shade. This shade just seemed to fit my overall skin tone better. The shade of the blush is not too harsh, just the perfect amount of tint. There is something about vibrant pink blushes that makes me cringe a little, but this was just right. There is a slight shimmer to the blush which is stunning on the skin and catches light like no other.
Along with the shimmer, the blush is extremely blendable. It is perfect for those days where you are looking for a barely-there look or a full-on flushed look. This trio is phenomenal for giving the perfect amount of definition without over doing it.
Because I am human, I forget products when traveling. This palette is a life saver in that it has the three products (that are crucial to my makeup routine) in one small but not-too-small compact.
I continue to be impressed with Urban Decay and their "NAKED" products. And while it was hard to part with my total of $32, it was worth it to find the ultimate face-to-cheek trio in one perfectly-sized palette.
