28 Blush Palette

Today I thought I'd share with you another budget beauty post in the form of this 28 blush palette that I got from eBay.  This palette would be great if you're wanting to have a collection of lots of different coloured blushes but can't afford or don't want to spend your money on lots of individual blushes from a more mid range brand like MAC.  I personally got this because I was using all of my mid to high end blushers day in day out for my normal make up when I'm just going to work or popping to the shops and I really felt as though it was a bit of a waste of make up.  Do I really need to be using a £20  blusher to sit in an office and take my make up off as soon as I get home?  Probably not.  I went in search of a blush palette that had many shades and different hues and I found this one.  I'm surprised by how much I like it.


Surprise, surprise there are 28 shades in this palette ranging from pinks to corals and peaches and even some orange shades.  They're all incredibly pigmented and I think that there are some to suit every skin tone here.  There are some good dupes for my favourite MAC shades too, I can only imagine how much it would cost me to buy this number of shades from there in one go!  The blushers are all powder, there's no cream products in here which is great as I'm not a fan of cream products.  The blushers aren't not too finely milled but that's to be expected for the price and if applied with a good quality brush then they look just as good as some of the mid range make up brands.



There is a great mix of finishes from matte to shimmer to sparkly which means that depending on what shade you use,  you may not need a separate highlighter.  I find that layering, blending or mixing a couple of different colours together works really well too.  You can create so many different looks with this palette and it's great for those who are just starting out with make up as well as those seasoned professionals amongst us.


The sleek black packaging of this palette makes it great for travelling too.  It's very slim and streamlined, just like the MAC palettes and wouldn't take up much room at all in your bag.


I paid £7.49 for mine from this eBay seller but there are so many available, just type 28 blush palette into your search bar.  P&P was free and it arrived very securely packaged within about 5 days.  I'd really recommend this seller as I had a great experience with them- I couldn't fault their service.

What are your favourite bargain beauty buys?  Have you tried a palette like this?

  1. What a great discovery on ebay for you. The issue you had about the make up for works is nothing new for me. I must do this for me too in the near future. Thanks for the great idea. Maybe I´ll find something to on ebay.

    Have a great week, P

  3. That is such a brilliant price for such a gorgeous palette! Very tempted to get this to take to uni instead of taking my Mac and Benefit blushes and worrying about losing them! Xxx
