The Body Shop All-In-One Blusher Review & Swatches

The Body Shop All In One Blusher 1

The Body Shop All-In-One Blusher $16 is a newly launched blush available in eight shades. Don’t quote me but I believe these will take over the current blush line.

Allow me to rant for a moment if you will….

Ouch on the $16 dollars.

I don’t mind dishing that much for a mid-range brand but a little shave off of the price wouldn’t hurt Body Shop. Although they do offer a BOGO if you buy two that will slash the price per blush down to $12 each. But I really don’t want to be forced into a two blush purchase….

Is it worth $16?

Naaa not really.

No offense Body Shop but that’s just too high a price. I grabbed this on a whim since I purchased the new Body Shop All-in-One BB Cream with a Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off. That kinda kept the price at somewhat affordable.

However, I can’t help but think to myself I could either splurge on a higher end blush at Sephora or get something equally as nice at the drugstore.

I picked up the shade Flushed which is a golden peach with gold shimmer. The shimmer buffs out easily enough so no worries about looking like a glitter bomb. I really love the golden peach color of this. It isn’t really an Orgasm-like shade as it’s a bit lighter but it will build up nicely to a full on healthy peach glow on cheeks.

The formula is quite silky and blends nicely on cheeks. It does kick up a good deal of powder when you brush through it, that’s not a bad thing just a warning for the heavy handed folks. Pigmentation is very good! So good in fact it might be a problem sheering the shade out but just use a lighter hand for a more subtle finish.

Overall, it’s a nicely formulated blush without a doubt. I do have reservations about the price though. The formula is no worst and no better than what you can get at your local drugstore. So near $20 for a blush ($16 plus taxes and you’re nearing the $20 range here) definitely feels a little too high to indulge for me. Even a BOGO offer doesn’t tempt me terribly here…

    So what the “All in one” part? The name seems to imply multiple functions or benefits. Me no understand.

    I don’t know why, but I’ve never felt particularly attracted to make-up from The Body Shop. I adore their bath & body products, but the make-up just doesn’t do it for me.

    Meh – with Milani’s blushes under $10, TBS needs to get over itself.

    Thanks for the review baby!
