MUA mosaic blush in ' English Rose'


I am someone who is generally a little bit scared of blush; I either think it puts too much colour on my face and looks silly or I think I put it on unevenly and end up with one cheek looking different from the other. However, I heard someone mention this blush and they said that it gives you a pretty subtle (key word subtle) flush to your cheeks and after thinking how pretty it looks when I went into Superdrug to check it out, I decided to give it a go.


MUA's Mosaic blush in 'English Rose' is a pretty mix of neutral brick toned colours with the odd lilac chunk thrown in to mix it up a little bit. 


Depending on how you want it to look, you can focus your brush more on the darker colours to get a more vibrant pinkish flush on your face or you can use the lighter toned parts to get a more natural looking colour or you can simply swirl your brush over the entire thing (which is what I do) to give your self a more subtle flush of colour but also with a pretty natural glow. The colours can look a little frosty when you build them up but personally, since I only use it very lightly I don't find it to be a problem.

I really can't say how much I love this blush. I believe it was around £2.50 from Superdrug but I can't find it on their website - I hope they haven't discontinued it because this is a product I would definitely like to repurchase!

Have you tried this blush?

  1. I'm not sure about Superdrug as I'm from the states, but it is available directly through MUA http://www.muastore.co.uk/index.php/mosaic-blusher-english-rose

  2. I always find that I get one cheek different to the other one too! Great post, MUA is such a great affordable brand! Would love it if you could take a look at my blog -

  3. I just bought this from the MUA website and I'm in love! Other than benefit's cheek stain I've never found a blush that suits my skin tone and looks natural!

  7. I don't think I own a 'mosaic' blush, but that lilac shade does look a bit odd - anyway, total bargain!

    1. I think the lilac shades add a nice touch to the blush though, I definitely don't try to avoid it when I'm applying it to my cheeks :)

    1. Aw, I know how you feel. I always see things I want from the States that we can't get here. Have you looked to see if the MUA website ships internationally?

    1. I'm really starting to notice the difference blush makes to the way your face looks, so I think it might be something I'm going to experiment with a bit more :)

    1. I think the addition of the lilac shade in it is what really drew me to it. I was interested in how it would turn out!
