I love these blushes from Eyeko. I have been using Meow Cosmetics Taboo blush in Nudity since the summer with Benefit High Beam as a highlighter. I don’t really own any other blushers and I never think to look for any because I had one that I liked. However, when I saw these new blusher/highlighters from Eyeko I wanted to try them. Luckily I received these two in the surprise gift bags and I’m really happy about that! :) I received My Coral Crush (for a pretty peach glow) and Glow Getter (for a pretty pearly glow).
“Baked pressed powders highly pigmented with finely milled pearlescent shimmer for a long-lasting flush of colour. Each double-sided compact features duo colour blush on one side and mirror and mini-blush brush on the other, perfect for touch ups on the go.”
My Coral Crush
Peachy keen! Get your glow on with shimmery coral colour for a flattering blush look.
Pale iridescent pink, perfect for a pinch of colour for pale skinned beauties or as flattering highlighter for dark skinned honeys.
Below are the swatches on my arm. As you can see My Coral Crush is packed with colour and you really don’t need a lot on the brush. It is a very warming blush and I have used it this week while I’ve been feeling under the weather and I’ve looked pretty much alive after putting it on! :) The blusher colour is on the left and highlighter on the right. The blush colour is a coral colour and the highlighter is a more orange coral that warms up the blush and the highlighter also has shimmer in it so the light bounces off your cheekbones.
Glow Getter is my favourite! It is perfect for pale skin. The blush colour is on the right and the highlighter is on the left. The blush colour has a good colour pay off like the coral blush, but is more buildable. With My Coral Crush you only need one swipe of the brush, but with Glow Getter you can have a sheer wash of pink or more colour if you require. I tend to put two layers of colour on to get my perfect pink. The highlighter in Glow Getter is really shimmery, more shimmery than the coral highlighter. I really like it, you can see the light reflecting as soon as you put it on.
The blush lasts really well. I can still see it after an 8 hour day. Maybe not as noticeable as when you first put it on, but with the handy brush and mirror packaging you can re-apply if you wish! :)
They come in a cute little cardboard box. Inside that is the plastic packaging that can open two ways. The top can open to get to the colour and the bottom can open to get to a little brush and a mirror! It’s a nice touch. I don’t really use the brush that came with it. It’s not bad, but I prefer my blusher brush, but for on-the-go application it would be fine to use.
Finally, below is what they look like on. The top picture is Glow Getter and the bottom is My Coral Crush. I wish the lighting was better today. :/ The main difference between them is obviously that one is pink based and one is coral based. Glow Getter gives a lovely fresh pink cheeked glow and My Coral Crush gives a lovely warm glow.
I love these blush/highlighter duos and would not hesitate to recommend them. I admit that I don’t have much experience with lots of different blushers/highlighters, but I am really impressed with these. There is one more I don’t have which is ‘Make Out Blush‘, it is a darker pink blush and I will probably order this one soon. :) Has anyone else tried out any of the new Eyeko products? I have a few Fat Balms in the post too, if they ever arrive with the snow ruining the postal service! I think I have gone a bit Eyeko mad lately. :)
