Review: Primark Shimmer Blush Pearls

Today I got these really pretty blusher pearls from Primark. They are so cute!

As you can see they are heart shaped shimmery pink pearls. They come in a jar with an applicator sponge, which I find a bit too rough to use. I find it easier to use a large powder brush and swirl it over the pearls. You don't get a lot of product however and it is very sheer. I think this could be better used as an all-over face powder rather than a blusher, even on my pale skin. The colour is along the same lines of Accessorize's Pretty Pink Blusher. Really nice as a highlight, not too shimmery or glittery, but gives a really pretty sheen.

Here it is swatched on my skin:
You might be able to tell how pale it is from this picture.

Overall: Lovely product used as a highlighter or all over 'glowy' powder, but too pale for blush for almost all skintones I would think.

Available from Primark, £2.50
