Make Me Blush Palette – Models Prefer | Why to avoid!

Say G’day to the new Models Prefer Make Me Blush Palette – Blush + Bronzer + Highlighter Collection RRP $14.99 from Priceline. I was very kindly gifted this beautiful palette, and had such high hopes. I really enjoy the packaging, especially the mirror. The things I enjoy about this palette kind of stop there…

This little beauty comes with a plastic sleeve covering the pans showing the shade names, which you will throw away as soon as possible. So, not necessary. Mine is already in the bin, sorry environment.

The palette comes with three gorgeous looking blush shades, a highlighter and a bronzer. I REALLY like the shade choices but sadly they didn’t deliver the goods. Such potential, such fail.

The hero of this palette is the reddish toned blush with a gold shift (top swatch). It swatches well and actually looks really nice when applied to the face. However, the other blushes swatch so bad, I just can’t even. The light pink shade (middle swatch) doesn’t show up on my skin at all, even if I try applying more and more product. I tried scraping at this shade like a madwoman, making it into more of a pigment. When swatched, it just disappears into my skin (PRO: Would be perfect prop for a magic trick)! The mauve shade (bottom swatch)  is pretty but yet again barely shows up when swatched, what on earth are these blushes :\.

The highlight is not chunky thankfully, and does have a nice tone to it. Unfortunately it makes your skin look so badly textured, which is surprising considering it’s not that metallic, really.

Bronzer looks like more of a highlighter on me when swatched. It is very glowy. Thankfully doesn’t look too much like a highlighter when applied to the face, but I wouldn’t want to use it again. I don’t like how it makes my skin look.

Overall, I’m just really confused by this palette. Why include three shades of blush when only one will show up on the face? It does give you an excuse to go to town using three blush shades on your face since two of them will not be making much of an appearance, no matter how much product you apply. I just don’t understand how this palette made it through quality control.

On the plus side, this palette would be good for very, very pale folk, or young people who want to try makeup (12 years old, depending on parent’s view?) since its difficult to apply too much (if any!) product.

Would you buy the Models Prefer Make Me Blush Palette? Yay or nay?

    The blush which shows up looks like a really pretty colour but I probably won’t be rushing out to buy this one especially if the other shades are barely visible. Thanks for another honest review Mel x

    Thumbs down! So disappointing. Models Prefer usually turn out half decent products too.

      I’m still so confused how this made it through quality control!

    nay…for this product. I have seen some beautiful products from models prefer, but this is a bit of a let down!

      What are some of your fav’s? So sad about this palette since it’s so pretty!

    It’s an interesting palette….like why does only one blush show up?! so weird! It looked lovely on your skin anyway 🙂 x

    Hmmm pigmentation is not great! But I guess it’s good for those starting out as they can build up the intensity if they have the patience for it! Trangles xoxo

  6. Oh that’s such a shame, I think that top blush is gorgeous but I’m not paying that price for one pretty blush if I won’t use the rest. I’m really pale, so I might go in and swatch it on me to see if it shows up, but that’s REALLY dissapointing 🙁

    That’s a bummer. It’s a cute palette with nice colours. I hope companies appreciate the constructive critisism so that they can improve on their products
