Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette








Keeping all focus on the eyes and lips, Gwen Stefani throughout her rockstar career has sported an array of cheek colours, albeit translucent. From bubblegum pinks to earthy browns, the palette houses all that you need to create a summer ready or a red carpet look. I call this my desk to the dance floor must-have. If you are one of those people who is always seen with a Zara reversible tote, then I'd highly suggest renting out a small compartment of your hold-all to this beaut.

Lets dissect the shades now, shall we?

Cherry. A straight-out bubblegum pink. It's cool toned, with blue undertones and has this retro-esque, pastel effect. With a satin finish, it reflects light back from the apples of the cheeks and looks gorgeous on contrasting, olive skin tones. Resembles 'well dressed' from MAC the most.

Easy. Think Bollywood blushers. A rich, jewel toned, sunset pink with warm undertones. Has almost undetectable, fine gold flecks sprinkled through it. Great for bridal make-up and to wear with an exotic tan.

Angel. Just as the name goes, it's a pale, champagne highlighter with a pinkish-silver iridescence to it. With a superbly smooth texture and a powerful yet not in-your-face finish, it's something I can definitely see myself hitting pan on. 

Lo-fi. Love. the. name. Not only an Instagram filter, it's a photography style that's all things vintage, imperfect and out of focus. Although the blush doesn't fully embody that expression, it's definitely great to add shadows to the face and up your contour game. Reminiscent of MAC's Gingerly, it's a creamy beige brown, that's so in vogue for SS16. 

Hush. A perfect highlight to accompany 'Easy'. Also, a great illuminating product for deeper skin tones. It's a warm pink, with finely milled gold flecks and won't look ashy or forced on the skin. Would also make a great peppy number for paler skin tones, just to add a hint of colour and warmth to the skin. 

OC. Not something I'll get the most use out of, OC is a peachy pink with a pastel demeanour. I can see it working wonderfully well in the Summer, to compliment that golden tan, oversized shades and Starbucks Frappuccinos. 

To sum up my feelings for the palette, I'd say it's a great all-rounder to have in your collection. Good quality and well designed blusher palettes from established brands are difficult to come across hence I'd definitely recommend this one, especially for it's unbelievable price tag of £35. Also, if you're shopping for wedding make-up, it has some beautiful shades for the bride and the bridesmaids to work with.
