As some of you may have noticed from my Twitter and Instagram I was invited to attend the pre-screening of the most anticipated movie of the year, Fifty Shades of Grey. Now I haven’t read the books so I can’t really say if the movie was comparable to the books. But to be perfectly honest it wasn’t really my thing. Yes Jamie Dornan is extremely sexy and I did not mind watching him undress numerous times, and Dakota Johnson was great in it but I really couldn’t get past the terrible dialogue. However, I do very much enjoy the collections that Make Up For Ever created for the movie, especially this beautiful blush set (and P.S. the soundtrack for the movie is un-freaking believable).
“Blush, highlight, and glow. This blush-worthy collection features three cheeky shades, plus an Artisan Powder Brush for expert application. With looks that range from a healthy glow of innocence to a highlighted flush of desire, you can experiment and play with the three color intensities, wearing them alone or blending together to create different looks. The Cheek Trio also includes makeup artist Victoria’s Down’s cheeky looks, techniques, and backstage secrets, and is seductively packaged in a velvet keepsake pouch, to hold your own little secrets.”
This set contains:
– 3 x 0.08 Artist Shadow blush in I-526, I-808, S-748
– Travel Precision blush brush in 150
– Exclusive keepsake pouch
When I first saw this cheek set I thought the blushes would be a little too intense for my complexion, but I was pleased to find out that they were actually perfect. The pink in the middle of the set is my favorite for sure, it gives the perfect amount of colour without too much intensity. The make up sets created for this movie are actually perfect for creating Anastasia’s soft romantic look. This cheek set is soft and pretty, perfect for almost every complexion. To achieve a little more intensity you just have to apply more colour, blending it into the skin really well.
This set is a must have. You get three full size blushes, a travel precision brush (I swear the set is worth it just for this brush), and a cute little pouch. The colours are perfect for everyday looks as well as a night out. I’ve already been wearing the colours on a daily basis, I love them.
Have you purchased any of the 50 Shades of Grey makeup sets?
