Essence | Blush Up in Heatwave
Over the past few months, Essence has quickly become one of my favourite drugstore brands, often offering budget alternatives to high end brands - like this Benefit Gimme Brow dupe - that pack a punch when it comes to quality.
Picture this, I was stranded at university with just my rose gold blush and a couple of peachy cremes. I had both an orange and pink hole in my train case but was fairly reluctant to spend much as I knew I had both in my collection at home.
Enter Essences's Blush Up! in Heatwave, the perfect ombre of a pigmented pink blended with a vibrant orange (and when I say pigmented I really do mean pigmented!). As a customisable blush shade, it works and as a travel compact, it's ingenious. If you're going to pack one blush in your suitcase this summer, make it this.
