Ben Nye Creme Rouge Wheel

Do you love it when products serve a dual purpose?  Actually, there are a lot of things that can serve dual purposes.  For example, mascaras can be used as liquid eyeliner and vice versa, eyeshadows can be used as a contour, lipsticks can be used as blushes.  Well, today, I’ll be talking about Ben Nye Creme Rouge Wheel, a product that can be used as both a lip and cheek product.

Mehron Cheek Powder Palette

A good blush can do wonders to a look.  It can change up a look or add some colour to your face (especially on those days where you are feeling under the weather).

 

Mehron Cheek Powder Palette comes in 8 colours – TropiCoral, Rosewood, Mocha, Contour, Mojave, Wineberry, Just Peachy and Bold Red.  This palette has colours for people with the lighter skin tones to the darker skin tone.  The pigmentation of the blushes in this palette is EXCELLENT (yes, emphasis on excellent is required).  Just one very light tap of the brush in the the product can provide so much colour.   On the other hand, you do have to be careful with application because pigmentation is so rich!  There is no shimmer in any of the colours, so this gives a more natural finish.  One downside to this cheek palette is that the product goes everywhere when you dip the brush – a lot of “fall out”.

Packaging wise, it is excellent – light and sturdy.  There is a big mirror on the inside of the packaging.  This palette also comes with a brush but I would say the brush is pretty useless for blush application.  It could work for eyeshadow application.

Conclusion:

I love this blush palette.  My favourite colours are the TropiCoral, Rosewood and Mojave.  I use the blushes in this palette for almost all my looks (you can see my looks here – My Portfolio).  However, you do have to be VERY careful with how much you apply.
