Since the launch of Benefit's Hervana, the idea of a purple-toned blush has really appealed to me.  I swatched Hervana in store and wasn't particularly impressed with the colour pay-off so I decided to shop around for an alternative.

For starters, Azalea Blossom is beautiful.  I'm such a sucker for nicely presented cosmetics, and this looks so pretty in my make up box!  I bought this online so didn't swatch before I bought, so again the colour isn't quite as lilac-y as I'd hoped, but it is buildable.  And at £20.50 for 9g, you're getting more than Hervana's 7g at £23.50.  Azalea Blush is limited edition as part of the Daphne Guiness collection, and though I haven't spotted it at my local MAC counter, it is still available to purchase via the website.

I don't think my search for a purple-toned blush is over, but for the meantime I'm happy.  I know I'll probably cave and get Hervana soon, as it seems too good to miss out on.  Have you spotted any alternatives?

    1. I wouldn't say colour pay-off is that amazing, but it does leave a pretty pale pink flush x

  3. That is the prettiest blush I have ever seen! I have Hervana and tbh I wish I hadn't spent so much on it :( the actual blush has chipped and the colour probably isn't anything that I couldn't find anywhere else xxx

    1. No problem, I didn't hear much of a blogger buzz surrounding this collection but I think this blush was definitely worth a mention! x
