Review: Accessorize cosmetics

During a casual browse in Superdrug after university today, my friend and I came across a new cosmetics stand filled with cosmetics by Accessorize.

I was very excited when I saw the stand as I have an Accessorize eyeshadow palette from last Christmas which I love, so I expected that their cosmetics would be good.

First off, their packaging is very pretty and the prices are very reasonable. Their stand is filled with pretty lipsticks, baked eyeshadows and blushers and lovely face powders.

I also tested out their liquid highlighter which had great reflective iridescent pigments in, which was lovely and was only £7.

They also have mini eyeshadow palettes which come with a small tube of eye primer for £6.

I was after a peach blusher so I got excited when I saw this one.



           In shade '3-Pretty Pink,' it is called a 'merged blusher.'




It is a very light peach coloured blush with fine veins of lilac running through. It looks sheer on the hand but with a pretty peach colour visible, and would be lovely as a highlighter or blush- especially with a tan. It will look lovely in the summer.




The blush only costs £5.50 which I think was very reasonable, as it reminds me of an msf from M.A.C.

I've tried out baked products from Avon before and I have found them very hard and don't have much colour pay off but this certainly isn't the case here. You only have to touch it lightly to pick up product and it leaves a lovely shimmer that is picked up by natural light.

I'm really impressed with this range and the packaging and price sells it even more. I can't wait to try out more things in this range, it really is lovely.

The range is available at Superdrug and you can receive 10% off with a student NUS card.
