I got these Makeup Revolution blushes in my last MUR haul last month. I had no idea what to expect from these £1 blushes, but I thought I would give them a try.
Price: £1 or about $1,59 on Makeup Revolutions website.
Packaging: The packaging of these are phasing out, I actually thought I ordered the new ones, wich are white Squares. But customer service told me, they were phasing them out slowly, so I can't say when exactly this old packaging will be sold out. But I expect it's soon. So I can't say much about the new packaging, but the old packaging seems nice and sturdy enough.
I got the Shades "love" and "sugar" there are 6 different colors to choose from, all pretty natural looking, no crazy colors in this range. These 2 blushes are both matte, I'm not sure if the 4 other Shades are all matte as well, but as far as I can see none of them look shimmery.

I'm really pleased with how soft and smooth these feel. They are a little powdery, and will kick up a little dust, when you stick your brush in it, just tap off your brush and you will be fine. They are not chalky at all.
When it comes to pigmentation, I have no complaints. These are perfectly pigmented for my pale skin. I don't want intense pigmentation with one little brush stroke, and I'm really prone to clown cheeks. However, these are definately buildable, I have managed to over apply on more than one occasion. These are definately not sheer either. So I think pigmentation is amazing, but not over the top. Just right.
The staying power is actually pretty good! I was surprised to find, that these last me all day. And when swatching them, I actually found them to slightly stain my skin, but not to the point where they could not be removed with simple water and a cotton round. I'm definately pleased with the staying power.

I can't believe they are only £1! I need more of them. So I definately recommend these blushes and I can't wait to see the new packaging.
