The MUFE HD microfinish blush in #8 PDA has been a staple in my makeup bag for quite some time now and it only occurred to me that I should review it after picked up the HD blush in Walk Of Shame recently (at Salon Melbourne trade show).
The MUFE HD blush formula is halfway between a liquid and a cream with a matte velvety finish. MUFE says that it combines ‘mattifying and reflecting powders to create a soft-focus effect’ and as a person with dry cheeks in the winter time I really love how this ‘soft focus’ finish hides any dry patches rather than accentuating them like some blushes (particularly powder) can. It really gives you the ‘lit from within’ glow.
PDA is a medium guava shade with a slight rusty undertone and high pigmentation. A really flattering, versatile colour that seems to suit every situation. You only need a small dot (approx 2-3mm across depending on how much colour intensity you like) for each cheek, so this product should last you a good while.
Walk of Shame is a light icy pink with sheer to medium pigmentation. I must admit I am a little disappointed with the pigmentation (after being so impressed with MUFE HD blush in PDA) – on my skin tone I feel I need to apply two layers for this to properly show up. It’s a pretty colour though, and gives you that MUFE velvety ‘lit from within’ glow. This shade would probably suit a lighter complexion than mine, and I kick myself for not picking up one of the other darker pinks that I had my eyes on instead.

I finally got some time to indulge in some major blog reading the last couple of days, and I’ve forgotten how much I enjoyed reading ‘what’s in my bag’ and ‘monthly favourites’ type blog posts.
I decided to photograph and list some products which have been staples in my makeup bag recently.
1. Z Palette with some MAC and Inglot shadows that I use almost daily
(I have swatched and listed them below)
2. Make Up For Ever waterproof eyebrow corrector.
This gem of a product is all I use on my brows now. It’s the only thing that will last all day on me and will even stay on during a sweaty gym session. I reviewed and swatched this in my waterproof makeup post.
3. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Illusoire.
Such a versatile product- I use it during the day to dress up a neutral work look, and during the night to add sparkle/dimension to a smoky eye. I swatched it here, and featured it in a taupe and purple FOTD here.
4. MAC Bronzer in ‘Golden’
Hello cheekbones! I’ve discovered the joys of contouring and wild horses can’t drag me away from bronzer.
