I’ve really been enjoying trying Neve Cosmetics products, as they’re all such amazing products and so affordable too. I was particularly blown away by their Elegantissimi Palette, as the pigmentation and buttery texture is incredible so I was excited to try another of their palettes.. this time the Neve Cosmetics Blushissimi Blush & Contour Palette €26,80 / £19.55*. The Blushissimi Palette contains ten massive three gram pans of powder; seven blushes, two bronzers and an illuminator, all of which can be used either wet or dry. The palette itself is a long, dark purple plastic palette which feels robust and sturdy enough for travel.
The Blushissimi Blush & Contour Palette contains a stunning range of shades that would suit all skintones and eye/lip colours, and the shades vary in finish too with matte, satin and shimmery options. The palette is incredible value, as each blush/bronzer works out at just £1.95 each, and they’re also enriched with vitamins to ensure long wear and comfort.
Fuchsia Jam: an intense raspberry with a satin sheen.
Emoticon: a matte warm pink.
Sunset: a matte bright orangey peach.
Lotus: a matte pale flamingo pink.
Starfish: an intense golden coral pink.
Bikini: a luminous pinky bronze.
Passion Fruit: a beigy pink with mauve undertones and a satin sheen.
Chocoholic: a matte brown bronzer.
California: a biscuity pink bronzer with a velvety finish.
Plastic: a cream-coloured illuminating powder with a satin sheen.
Even though Neve Cosmetics describe the palette as having seven blushes, I can only use the five shades on the top row as blushes as the shades on the bottom row (minus the highlighter) are all quite dark-toned. All ten shades within the palette have an amazing velvety, buttery consistency which applies and blends beautifully into the skin with very little effort. The pigmentation is really quite strong, so you only need to tap your brush very lightly into the pan, to pick up enough product for both cheeks. Bronzer wise, I like to use California as it’s not too dark for my pale skin, and I love using the other three bronzer shades as eyeshadows. The highlighter shade Plastic is a gorgeous highlighter as it has a subtle sheen rather than obvious shimmer or glitter, so it’s perfect for everyday wear. I am just so, so impressed with these Neve Cosmetics palettes.. I want them all.
