Collection Gorgeous Glow

Collection is quickly becoming one of my favouite drugstore brands, their products are affordable, great quality and they are constantly launching new and innovative things. I picked up these Gorgeous Glow Bronzing and Blushing Blocks a few weeks ago whilst having a browse in Boots, I hadn't seen them before and they looked like such good dupes for many high end shimmer bricks that are out there.

Gorgeous Glow is available in two shades and I of course had to pick up one of each to try. There is a bronzing block and a blushing block and as the names suggest, one is more bronze tones and the other is pinks and peach for adding a nice pop of colour to your complexion. Each block contains five different tones that can be used separately or swirled together to create different looks. 

Both shades add luminosity and radiance to the skin, the texture of the product is like a dream and they blend into the skin effortlessly. The shades are super pigmented so you do have to be a little careful when applying, I didn't actually expect quite so much pigmentation and looked a little bit too colourful at first! 

The bronzing block reminds me massively of the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick, the shades are beautiful and warm and there is also a lighter highlight shade in there too. I find myself using this block for eyeshadow as well as an all over face colour as the shades are perfect for an everyday pretty look. On first application of the blushing block I was instantly thinking of NARS blush in orgasm, the tones are very similar so if you're looking for a dupe this could be the one for you.

Whether you're looking for a bronzed look or a pretty blushed look I can definitely recommend these, they really do not dissapoint and you can pick them up for just £4.19 each.
