Hello Friends.

Another makeup review, woo!

I was sent this Seventeen Cheekstamp blush by Cohorted. It’s a fun idea and I was instantly won over by the unique packaging.

I don’t know if I was being a knob, but I didn’t really understand the concept of it at first. I thought that maybe you pressed it on your cheek and it activated some wet make-up to seep through the stamp so then you can blend it. But no, it’s a powder inside the lid. It’s just covered with a plastic film so you have to remove the plastic film and then it works.

Learn from my mistakes, guys. This took me a good 20 minutes to figure out.

After I had my light bulb moment that allowed me to figure out how this stuff worked, I managed to give it a go. Woo.

It doesn’t come up very good in swatchy-swatchy mode. It appears very chalky in texture.

When I used it on my face, it wasn’t as chalky and did have a nice light pink tint to it.

Over all, I did enjoy using this but I’m not 100% sold on it. I much prefer the So Susan blush that I’ve been using for the past month or so. It’s the packaging that makes it fun and draws you to it more than the actual quality of the blush itself.

The main things that put me off this was it seemed too chalky and the stamp was a little hard to blend with. It retails for around £4.99 and I don’t think I would pay that much for it, it seems more like a £3 product!

I also have some little-big man syndrome over it because I could not figure out how it worked. I wanted to throw it at the wall and scream ‘I didn’t want to use this shit anyway. It’s stupid. Fuck this.’ and then give it a swift kick. But I did not let these feelings influence this review in any way at all. I promise.

Have you ever tried this?

  1. Very interesting concept, looks great on you. But, I don’t like chalky blush or ones that don’t blend well as I just end up looking like a clown, haha. But, you look great. Super review. Have a great weekend doll xx

  2. It has nice packaging shame that the product wasn’t that great. Foundations and powder is ways worth paying more for. Wishing you a nice weekend Lucy x

  3. You should have seen me swatching this in store! I went through all of the testers thinking that none of them worked, until I realised that the powder was in the lid. It’s actually not as exciting a concept as I had first thought 🙁 x

  4. I think it is overpriced – I have to LOVE my cosmetics to pay above the odds for them – this one seems too fiddly.

  5. I’ve tried, tested and reviewed this myself! I actually loved it and want to pick up more colours!!

  6. Oh, i’d presumed it was a stamp too. How long does it last for on your face? It does look lovely on your cheeks, looks natural. x

  7. Not a huge fan of stamp it on make up, I much prefer something I can apply with a big fluffy brush and have more control over! With this I’d end up looking like one of those dolls with perfectly round pink cheeks!

  8. Its a little too pale for me, I have one in coral and there wasn’t much pigmentation at all, and it is hard to blend.
