Beauty For A Cause - SEPHORA The Beauty of Giving Back Blush Palette

I hope all you beauty lovers have come to realize how amazing SEPHORA collection products are.  And not only that - I can tell you, they're continually getting better.

Take this year's offering for Oct. Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the SEPHORA The Beauty of Giving Back Blush Palette.

Not only is this a fantastic deal (now $15 online and a $74 value), but the colors and formulas are pretty, easy to work with and provide great color variation for a wide variety of looks and skin tones.

I tend to lean towards corals and pinks, so the shades in this palette were right up my alley. There's also a very nice (Ombre effect!) powder bronzer shade in the middle of the palette which provides the perfect amount of glow and shimmer, but nothing over the top. I also loved using this an every day contouring powder. Next to the bronzer is another ombre effect powder blush with peach tones that I really loved for a quick pop of color in the mornings.

On the left side of the palette are three creamy, smooth, very pigment-rich cream blushes. They worked well on me applied with fingers, a brush or a beauty blender. On the right side are three powder blushes that do require a blush brush for application (there is no brush included in this palette).

The cream and powder shades also work really well together.  I would layer one of the cream blusher shades with a powder shade for more intensity and bolder color in the evening.  I got all-day wear out of both the cream and powder shades, with no fading, flaking or color transfer.
All in all, these are eight skin flattering shades you can use in so many ways to achieve natural or glamorous looks.  I think this is also a great product (with very pretty packaging too!) to buy several of for holiday beauty gifts - and provide more assistance to a wonderful cause while doing so. - RLB
A portion of the sale of this palette will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which is dedicated to preventing and curing breast cancer within our lifetime.
