Shade: Pink Cheek Glow
Where to find: Superdrug
What they say: N.Y.C. New York Colour Mosaic Face Powders are ultra sheer soft, natural pressed powders. N.Y.C. New York Colour Mosaic Face Powders are made up of four harmonizing hues in one mosaic powder in the right combination of colours to enhance skin tones. When the four neutral colours in N.Y.C. New York Colour Mosaic Pressed Powders are blended together, they create a perfect single shade that balances and enhances all skin undertones.
What I say: This gives the cheeks a natural glow and is not shimmery, which I know some people hate. Its not high in pigmentation which for me is a good thing because it means the colour is build-able and I don't end up looking like a clown after one swipe. The type of brush you use to apply this definitely depends on the pigmentation of the end result. For example, my ELF blush brush gives a more intense colour than my ELF complexion brush as it is more dense.
I don't think this is the best blush I have used as its just an average colour blush, but it is a good subtle product for every day use.
Would I repurchase? Yes, although I will not need to for a while as there is a lot of product!

Sweet and sophisticated fruitiness. Lashings of blackcurrant and bergamot essential oils in a sour cherry and coconut jelly make this about as fruity as you can get. It is incredibly difficult to resist taking a spoonful. Instead, take a handful and smooth it over your hair and body. Passing strangers will smell you and find their minds wandering to fruit pastilles.
£2.30 for 100g
This smells like sweet blackcurrant - mmmm and the smell lingers which is always good. It lathers up really well and leaves your skin feeling soft and clean.
As it is a jelly, I found it quite hard to hold without it slipping everywhere so I think it would be better to use frozen. This way you can crush it on to your body and as it would be cold, it will refresh your skin.
Would I repurchase: No. Not because the product is bad, its actually very good. But £2.30 for a shower gel is quite expensive and there are loads of regular shower gels which do the same job, but for less.
