Estee Lauder Pure Colour Blush in 'Witty Peach'

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Blush - Witty Peach, Satin. £24.00
 
I initially intended on visiting my local Estee Lauder counter to pick up their well hyped Double Wear concealer, one item and leave. However, the moment I approached the Lauder stand my eyes widened and I was pleasantly surprised with their offerings. I don't tend to purchase much from Estee Lauder, apart from their Double Wear foundation as it strikes me as more of a 'older lady' brand. Now I've gotten over the somewhat outdated outer packaging and discovered they have a lot more to offer then just foundation.
One of the products that caught my eye was their Pure Colour Blush in 'Witty Peach' which reminded me instantly of Macs 'Ripe Peach' which I was gutted to miss out on when it came out. The ombre design instantly had my heart fluttering and before I even knew it the words, 'I want this too please' had passed my lips.
I do find that once I actually own a product, take it home and really trial it out it sometimes isn't as amazingly brilliant as you convinced yourself in the shop it would be. So, that being said I do have a few faults with this product which I'll rush through quickly as I hate to pick fault with something so beautiful. 
1, The ombre effect is undoubtedly gorgeous and the main thing that attracted me to purchasing this product but the beige/yellow has no purpose. 
2, The packaging is a b**** to open. 
And finally.. Why do all high end brands still insist on supplying you with a flimsy, horrible little brush. 

If you can bypass all of it's minor faults then this is a beautiful blush to own. It's not quite as pigmented as I'd hoped but it's easily buildable and offers a pretty peachy/coral flush to your cheeks. Purely because the appearance is so delicate and lovely and because I don't have another coral or peach in my collection alike this I definitely don't regret my purchase. This isn't a necessity, especially if you have similar shades but a nice, luxurious treat.

  6. Trust me, I'm exactly the same - I ended up with a bronzer/illuminator from there when I went in for the foundation just because it looked so beautiful... and I don't even tend to wear bronzer! Perhaps you could use the beige/yellow shade as an eyeshadow base or as a highlighter (if it's a little shimmery?). I do agree that it's very pretty and don't blame you for buying it, it's just a shame that it's not as pigmented as you'd hoped. (oh god and the brushes are my pet hate too!)
