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?
