I got a little excited when I unexpectedly discovered that the Accessorize store in Antwerp carried a part of their cosmetic line. I have been wanting to try their cosmetics for a while now, especially the nail polishes, they have some amazing duo chromes! Accessorize is a brand from the UK and they carry a lot of accessories such as handbags, jewellery, scarves and cosmetics!
Quiver is a merged baked blusher. The blusher is packaged in plastic and on the lid you can see two butterflies which is the typical Accessorize style. The lid opens and closes smoothly, this might sound a bit weird, but I do struggle with opening some blushes and I find it very annoying! There is 8g of product and it goes for 7.90 euro which is really reasonably priced in my opinion. Like a lot of baked powders, this one has a round form.
Quiver has a mauve base with bright pink veins running through it. It has a slight frosty finish but on the skin it translates into a pretty glow. The mauve shade is kind of pale when used alone, so I prefer to mix it up a bit with the bright pink shade, so you get a very pretty cool pink colour. The colour pay off is good, not great but just good, especially the bright pink shade. I was a bit afraid that this shade might be too pale on me, but it’s really not. However if you have a darker skin tone, you might want to check on that first. The shade contrasts nice on my skin tone because of the coolness.
The blush can be a bit powdery if you put your brush in there, but it’s not too bad. I was quite surprised about how pigmented it went onto my skin. I really thought because the colour was quite pale I should really load up my brush, so I went a bit overboard there in the pictures. The blush really wears well too, a whole day, like most blushes do on me (I find this very dependable on your skin type).
Overall I’m really happy with this blush, I love the look of baked blushes and some have a poor lasting power, but this one is quite good! I wished they had a bigger colour selection of their blushes though, at the moment they have three if I remember correctly and most of them are very light, so dark skinned people are a bit left out (then again it’s a UK brand).
