Born Pretty Store: Blush Palette and Highlighter Stick

No comments :
I reviewed some things from Born Pretty Store ages ago, and was recently asked if I would like to work with them again. I said yes and was sent a few beauty products to review for you guys. They also gave me a 10% off code to share with you all, so if you like anything on their site, use the code
SRMK31 at the checkout to receive 10% off your purchase!

The first thing I got is a blush palette by Sabas. There are 4 bright colors in here:
A bright pink, a salmon pink, a bright orange, and a coral. There is also a mirror on the inside of the cover.

The bright pink has some shimmer to it - it is not overly shimmery and gives a nice rosy glow to the cheeks.

The salmon pink has tiny glitters in it. This one is the most sparkly out of the bunch.

The bright orange is more of a satin finish. This is a color that scares me blush-wise, but I actually like the way it looks on my face!

The coral is shimmery like the first bright pink shade. Again, really nice color especially for summer time.

All of the shades are slightly powdery but very pigmented - you don't need much product to get color payoff! These last all day on me and I really like the color variety - like I said, I wouldn't normally go for an orange blush but this one is gorgeous and may change how I feel about oranges! You can purchase the blush palette here:

The other product I received was a Sugar Box Shimmer Stick in #01.
This is a cream highlighter stick that comes in a twist-up tube. It comes with a protective plastic cap on top to keep it from getting damaged. This has a nice perfumey scent to it, which I wasn't expecting!

Here is the product with and without flash:
You don't get a ton of product, but you also don't need much because it is quite pigmented, so it will last a while. 

Here is a swatch straight from the tube:
And then blended out:

It is a white-champagne color and really pretty on the skin. It blends out easily, which is always nice in a cream product. I have really been enjoying using this as a cheekbone highlight! You can purchase the highlighter here:

In the following pictures I have the highlighter stick on my cheekbones and the pink blush on my cheeks :)
