Makeup Revolution does dupes like a boss! Forget spending a fortune on high-end brands and embrace the much affordable doppelgangers by this UK-based brand.
Their Blushing Hearts triple baked blushes strongly remind one of the Too Faced Sweethearts Blushes. Being an exact replica in packaging and appearance, the Makeup Revolution Blushes don’t lack in quality as well and come for so much cheaper.

As I mentioned earlier, the packaging is an imitation of the Too-Faced Sweethearts blushes with similar size, card board packaging and 3D shape of the product. The paperboard box looks cute with candy floss pinks and golds. The Too Faced one has slightly more expensive appearance though. The packaging of this product is light yet flimsy to travel with.

My Experience With It.
The I Heart Makeup collection by umbrella brand Makeup Revolution has come up with a variety of heart shaped baked blushes, bronzers and highlighters. Unfortunately, only a few of them are available in India online and further remain sold out always. The blushes are named as Peachy Pink Kisses, Iced Hearts, Bursting With Love, Candy Queen Of Hearts, Peachy Keen Heart and Blushing Hearts, which I am reviewing here. Whereas the highlighters are Goddess Of Love, Goddess Of Faith and Golden Goddess. All the products are super cute to look at and I could just stare at them for hours.
The Blushing Hearts blush has three different shades of cool toned pinks merged together in the same pot. Each colour could be applied individually or could be swirled together for a flushed look on the cheeks. The first two colours are metallic pinks with similar finish and minuscule shimmer particles. While the third one, which makes the largest of the three stripes, is the brightest of all pinks and is loaded with glitter. I am not fond of glittering blushes as they look unnatural and even funny. Not sure if anyone could actually use the last shade on cheeks and end up looking like a disco ball. When all the colours are swirled together lightly, the glitter looses its intensity on the skin and looks fine.
Texture and Pigmentation:
Being baked, the texture is very fine and smooth. The blush is quite compact and not loose powder like, which reduces wastage. Pigmentation is high and a slight swirl picks up a lot of colour. The product blends well on the skin and doesn’t require much quantity to be seen on the cheeks. The glitter, however, is concerning.
I have been wearing it for a week now. On my oily skin, it stays for 3-4 hours without a touchup during days. However, around nighttime the staying prowess enhances by another couple of hours, may be because it is not sunny and less humid in the evenings. The blush, though, is transferable and gets wiped out with random brushing of hands or tissues. Not kiss proof :-)!
