The No7 Match Made Powder Blusher Collection is just one product within the No7 Match Made collection. The whole concept of the Match Made collection is down to ‘Match Made’ technology within the store, where their No7 advisors uses a digital device to decide your perfect shades.
The No7 Match Made Powder Blusher Collection features eight shades, and they’re £9 each. I have had a mixed experience with No7 as a brand, and I tend to prefer their skincare over their makeup, but I was intrigued to see what their blushers were like, especially with the supposed ‘Match Made’ concept.
“Match Made Powder Blushers contain a unique blend of micro-powders for a velvety smooth application, as well as Vitamin E to care and condition.”
Each of the eight blushers have super simple packaging, with rounded black compacts and clear lids. Each compact contains 3g / 0.1oz of product, which is actually quite a small amount of product for a blusher.
I feel like the packaging is a little deceptive, as they look larger than they are, but 3g really is a small amount of product, especially for £9 which is pricey for a drugstore makeup brand.
Let’s take a look at the shades….
- Cranberry Crush
- Apricot Blossom
- Peony Mist
- Damson Mist
- Peach Velvet
- Rose Blossom
- Plum Velvet
So they are all eight shades of the No7 Match Made Powder Blusher Collection. The shade range includes a nude, some peach, and a lot of pink shades. The formula isn’t great, I have to be honest. They’re just so dry and powdery. They feel as if they’re very old, and have become dusty, but they’re not – they’re brand new, which is disappointing, especially at £9 a pop.
There are a lot of negative reviews on the blushers both on the Boots website, and the No7 website, and I try not to read website reviews as they’re not always too helpful, but I have to agree with a lot of the reviews on these blushers. The formula isn’t pleasant to use, and they just don’t look nice on the skin.
The only shade I would say I like is Honey, and that formula feels a little different to the other seven, but as a whole, they’re not blushers I could recommend. For £9 you could buy a NYX blusher or Revolution blusher, and get much nicer packaging, and a much better formula, so the whole No7 Match Made Powder Blusher Collection is a big disappointment for me.
