First look: Collection Blush and Glow Quad video review

October 21, 2015
Blush and Glow Quad from collection has highlighting and contouring shades
Collection Cosmetics has just released its latest blush quad – Blush and Glow – and I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to try it. But is it any good, and will it flatter dark / Asian skin?
The blush comes in four shades for highlighting, blush and contouring.  Watch me try it for the first time and see my initial thoughts.

Once the camera stopped rolling…

So overall, I was impressed with the blush for it’s lightness and brightness.  On my skin, it doesn’t show up as a strong pigmented shade, rather a light flush of colour.
I also like the fact that it doesn’t look chalky on my skin, which is a common issue when applying light blush to darker skin.  This is ideal for workwear or for when I want my makeup clean and minimal.
However, for the times I need a stronger, more dramatic shade, I’d probably reach for my Mac or Laura Geller blushes.
Overall, Collection’s Blush and Glow gets a thumbs up from me.
