Don't you just love it when you've been looking for a certain type of product or shade and you end up finding it without even trying. For ages I've wanted an everyday blush shade that was a really subtle and natural shade that would add a little something to any make up look. I didn't have an intention to try the Seventeen Cheek Stamp Blush in Bashful and it would never have come to my attention if it wasn't for the lovely Mariette sending it to me in the Christmas beauty swap we did and it's quickly become one of my everyday blushes.

My biggest gripe with this product is the packaging - I'd much prefer it to come in your typical pan form as the stamp applicator just doesn't work that well for me. It transfers the colour quite well but the stamp leaves a circle of product on your face so you have to blend it out after you've applied it - unless you're going for that ragdoll type of look. The information given on the product does tell you that you need to blend it out so it's not like it's hiding that from you but i just think it defeats the object -- surely, the idea of stamping the blush on your cheek is to make the application process easier but to me this just adds an extra step.

The shade Bashful is the perfect in-between of a Blush and Bronzer, it's almost like a nude pink toned brown and i find it to be quite a versatile shade - i like to wear it on the cheeks as a blush or sometimes I'll wear it along the cheekbones and on the temples as a very subtle contour. Stamp and packaging aside; the blush itself is really lovely - i adore the shade of it, it really is the perfect everyday shade as it compliments pretty much any make up look. It blends out easily, lasts really well and i do really like the blush - i just wish it was in a pan form.

What's your go to everyday blush?

  1. Would it be possible just to remove the stamp applicator and use a normal brush instead? It's a power product so you won't have to worry about it drying out! It does look like a perfect colour :)

  2. This is a pretty neutral blush & one that I think would look good on most skin tones. I don't think the stamp applicator is very hygienic or practical but the product looks great!

  5. The colour looks really lovely but I don't think I'd use the applicator so the packaging is a little bulky for me. xo
