Lately, I've been using my Burberry blush in Cameo quite a bit. I bought it in the summer but was sure I had wasted the $50. I couldn't get it to blend nicely and the colour just looked bad.
I'm not sure what has changed but I'm really enjoying it now. It's really pigmented, smells amazing, has nice packaging, and has more product than most of my blushes (it's .24 oz whereas MAC blushes are .21 oz, and NARS blushes are .16 oz).
For a product that has "light glow" in the name, it applies darker than expected but I just use a light hand and keep building it. It definitely gives off a nice 'glow' or sheen as opposed to having shimmer in it.
If you don't want to spend the $50, try the e.l.f. blush in Mellow Mauve. For $3, you can get a very similar colour. They aren't exactly the same, but I think if the e.l.f. blush didn't have any shimmer, they would be even closer.
I've read some reviews on Mellow Mauve and some say it's matte and not pigmented enough. Perhaps a downside to this blush is it's inconsistency, because mine is very pigmented and has a slight bluish shimmer to it (but don't worry, when applied it isn't a shimmer bomb). You'll probably want to set the e.l.f. blush with a finishing powder though, because I don't find it lasts all day.

Let me know if you've tried anything from Burberry! I want the lipstick in Cameo Pink but it's just an easy to wear soft pink...I'm sure I can find a drugstore option.
Any suggestions for natural looking pink lipsticks? What's your favourite?
