Review and Swatches: W7 Cosmetics Candy Blush Explosion

You know I adore blushes. I'm trying not to buy them too much anymore, because I haven't hit the pan on any or even finish any of them yet. The latest addition to my blush collection is W7 Cosmetics Candy blush Explosion that I got in February Dash Box. I was very happy with the shade I got, because it's very wearable shade and it suits my fair skin tone well.


If I start with the packaging, the blush comes in a round plastic packaging, which looks very fancy and it reminds me on Bourjois blushes. The packaging is in the shade of the blush and it contains a mirror, which makes it perfect to carry around in your purse (but it’s true that you’ll need a brush as well, because it’s a powder blush and it doesn’t have added brush).


Explosion is a powder peachy-coral blush with an amazing color payoff and very silky formula. It applies smoothly on cheeks and blends really nicely. Coral and peachy shades are lately my favourite to wear, so I adore this shade and the fact that is matte is also a plus. If I want to achieve more pigmented look I swirl the brush into the blush (as I said it’s very pigmented), but if I want more soft, natural look I gently dip the brush into the blush and then I can never apply it too much. On me it lasts around 6-7 hours. 


The packaging contains 6 g. I received this blush in a Dash Box, which says that the price of this blush is 7 € (the price on W7 Cosmetics official site is £4.95). I checked Dash Box site, but they don’t sell these blushes in their store. The store that does sell W7 Cosmetics and Candy Blush range as well is Slovenian online store Glossy.si. There you can get these blushes for 5,20 €. Some W7 Cosmetics products are also available in Beauty for Me online store.

Overall, I find this blush very nice. It’s pigmented, the shade is lovely – it would suit any skin tone, it doesn’t dust, so you don’t waste any product and the packaging is very fancy.
