Changing my mind = product disappointment

Hi ladies,

Maybe you heard me raving about the Glow on B6 blush that comes in the 
Bowwow Palette by Shu Umera below.

Well..I might be changing my mind actually.

I'm not sure what happened with this one. It's very strange.

The blush is like a baby pink with some similar finish to Petticoat MSF by Mac with a gold and silver SHINE.
Yes, there is gold glitter all over it but it didn't seem to transfer at all.
See the photo below: glitter!

Well, I'm really sad to report that after the 3rd time I used it the glitter started to show up..and in masses!
Such a disappointment.

I tried:
-Using a dry brush 
-Using dry fingers
-Using a wet brush 
-Using wet fingers 

-I even tried to wipe a layer of the blush with a wet brush to see if I could get some glitter out. Failed.

The best solution is to apply with a dry brush and then wiping the brush in a wet wipe and then try to get some glitter off by gently swiping the wet brush on top of the blush application.

So, I'm really sad to announce that I will not be using the blush as much as I hoped.



What's your product disappointment at the moment?

    I&#39;m so sorry for you. This kind of things are awful, more over when you pay a lot for the product and it doesn&#39;t fulfill your expectations. Nevertheless, it&#39;s a lovely color, so don&#39;t feel so bad! :)<br /><br />xx

    ahhh annoying!<br />My product dissapointment happened today..but i suppose its kind of my fault. on the NO7 counter i noticed some new limited edition liner pots, and the in the pot the &#39;BLUE&#39; one looked like a really nice purple, not blue atall. Having been looking for a nice purple liner pot i bought it and when I got home and tried it its a really yukky blue :( x

    @Tammy: Si, ya se..pero estamos hablando de muhccchoooo brillo. Too much para mi gusto. X<br /><br />@Andrea: Well, I guess it was a &quot;present&quot; from my hubby but still annoying! Yes, it&#39;s a lovely colour but I don&#39;t like the glitter. :-( X<br /><br />@Rachy: Ohh no! I HATE when that happens! You should have asked me...the mammmmaa of purples. I recommend Inglot, Shu Uemura and Bobbi Brown for gel liners. So far none of the cheap brands impressed me to recommend them. Sad! X

    That sucks! I really had chunky glitter blushes. They just accent problem areas. I stopped using NARS Orgasm because it was too glittery. How is the rest of the palette?<br />xx<br />Alicia

    @kirstyb: Thank you! X<br /><br />@Alicia: The rest is brilliant! Lovely shades and texture! Shame that happened to you as well. Didn&#39;t know that Orgasm had glitter. I&#39;m not getting that then. X

    I have the NARS Orgasm multiple, and it&#39;s awful! The colour is really pretty but disappears when you blend it on your cheeks and you are left with a huge amount of glitter :/ waste of money <br />x
