Makeup Revolution The One Fluid Blushers- Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blusher Dupes?


L-R Makeup Revolution Blusher in Desire and Pink Dew, Daniel Sandler in Cherub 

When I first saw these blushers by Makeup Revolution I wondered how they'd compare with Daniel Sandler's Watercolour blushers. Initially there's a lot of similarities and at only £3 a pop I was keen to give them a go. I went for Pink Dew, a very pale pink. This doesn't work brilliantly on me as a blusher, there's not enough contrast but as a highlighter it does quite a good job. I also picked Desire, a deep pink with some shimmer. This is highly pigmented, a tiny drop is all that's needed. To tidy up any mess or to blend I use any left over foundation I have on my brush. I use Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for this- which is brilliant for flawless base application.

So are they dupes for Daniel Sandler's Watercolour Blushers? Well, kind of. The packaging is similar but Makeup Revolution's is much cheaper looking and feeling, which is to be expected really considering it only costs £3 whereas Daniel Sandler's is £15.50.

Both blushers have a runny consistency but Daniel Sandler's is much easier to use. Makeup Revolution's is a bit unwieldy with quite a lot of slip. This means they take a wee while to set, especially Pink Dew which is quite oily. Both blushers need a good shake before application as there's quite a lot of separation in the ingredients but even more so with Makeup Revolution's. Finally, both have similar longevity but I think Daniel Sandler's wears better.

Makeup Revolution's The One Fluid Blushers are good budget buys with a nice selection of colours. They're not as sophisticated as Daniel Sandler's but for the price they're worth giving a go. If you don't want to part with £15.50 you can try samples of Daniel Sandler's  Watercolour Blushers for £2 here.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?

  1. I was curious about these too! Sounds like they need a bit more work but cant really complain for £3 I suppose? Liking the look of Cherub!

    1. Cherub really is pretty, I think it'd really suit you. Daniel Sandler colours are really pretty and flattering.

  2. Great post, for the price I suppose you can't complain but think I'll try the more expensive one instead!

    1. thanks! The small £2 samples last for a surprising amount of time because you only need the teeniest amount.
