L.A. Girl recently launched their collection and I have crazily picked a few of them. I always love compact kits as they are easy to carry. Today’s review is going to be on L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Blush Collection in the shade ‘Spice’. Let’s get into the review.

Product Description & Ingredient List:
My Experience with L.A. Girl Spice Beauty Brick Blush Collection:
Packaging: Blush collection palette comes in a light weight black cardboard packaging along with a mirror inside the box. On the lid it has a thin clear row that helps to see the colors and the lid closes with a magnetic ‘click’. Overall it looks nice and easy to carry around but it is an expensive palette and it made with cardboard. So it feels little flimsy. Also it doesn’t contain any applicator.
Shade: Palette has four variants and I choose the shade ‘Spice’. It is a gorgeous palette that contains two blush shades and one bronzer and one highlighter. It has a nice combination of shimmery and matte shades. I can create a natural to bold look with it. All the shades are good for all skin tones and it looks very fresh on skin. Let’s discuss about the individual shades.
Blush 1: First blush is a very nice dusky deep coral shade and it doesn’t have any shimmers. It is a warm matte shade that suits all skin tones. It looks very bright and bold on skin. This is really a pigmented shade that needs a light-hand application.
Blush 2: One of my favorite blush shades; it is actually a natural light dusky pink shade with micro shimmers in it. It looks so soft and natural on skin. It is a perfect daily wear shade. It needs few applications to show up the color properly.
Bronzer: It’s a warm brown shade and it doesn’t have any shimmers. This is good for fair to medium skin tone. It is not super pigmented and not so dark for dusky beauties. So it might not show up on them. But on my tanned skin it looks nice like a natural bronzer that provides a nice sharp look.
Highlighter: It is a light beige shade highlighter with shimmers in it but it can’t provide that super illuminating look. The glow it provides a very sober and natural. It is also good for daily purpose. Shade is not so pigmented; it needs lots of swipes for that perfect glow.
Texture & Quality: All the shades have super smooth fine texture that blends easily without any effort. Only the deep blush shade needs proper blending otherwise it makes clown-cheeks. They easily set into a nice semi matte texture and provides a soft natural look. Shimmers never look overpowering. They look so subtle on skin and provide a gorgeous glow to skin. They never feel powdery or chalky and they evenly glide on skin. Texture never feels dry and they never clog pores. Only the highlighter slightly settles in pores by the end of the day. They never crease or settle in fine line. Also the shades doesn’t transfer that much. I have oily skin and it never makes skin oiler. So it suits my skin perfectly.
Lasting Power: I have applied it so many times and it survives on my oily skin nicely around 5-6 hours and after that it starts to fade. But all the shades have different staying power. Light blush shade stays around 4 hours and deep one stays around 6 hours. Bronzer & highlighter survive 4-5 hours respectively but overall they look nice on skin and they never look messy by the end of the day. It is easy to remove the shades.
Overall this is such a pretty face palette that makes my cheeks so beautiful, it provides that soft natural look and it acts as a perfect compact travel kit. I absolutely love this palette; only wish it has little more pigmentation.
