Review: Everyday Minerals Super Fab Wonder Duo Pressed Blush + Bronzer

A couple of months ago I got the "Super Fab Wonder Duo", a blush and bronzer compact, at  Everyday Minerals for a special promo price of $5.99.  This was their "PICK OF THE WEEK".  Their weekly special item changes all the time. Each week there is a new surprise item for a steal, pretty exciting don't you think? 

Everyday Minerals also have a "SPECIAL STUFF" link that gives you promo codes for a FREE item when you purchase a minimal of  $5.00 (minus shipping, tax and discount) .And don't forget to add a free base kit with your purchase. 

With the promo code, I got a free blush in Soft Touch (mini size) and I didn't forget to add to get a free base kit too.
Here is the Super Fab Wonder Duo, a blush and bronzer compact,  a free Mini blush in Soft Touch, and free foundation base samples.

I really love the packaging, it is simple, clean, and sturdy. The compact comes sealed, and includes a latex-free sponge. The sponge is soft and is really good quality, not only does it serves as an applicator, but it also cushions the product  for further protection from cracking.
Product Review:
The powder is smooth, soft and silky with a matte finish that is easily blendable and buildable. The blush is a light pinkish color. On my skin, the blush shows up as a very subtle, a natural nudish pink color.  I think this works best on fair to light skin complexion, I don't think it will show well on a darker complexion.  When I want to  intensify the color. I apply it over a cream blush.

The bronzer is a nice subtle contour color. It is very buildable, and since the color is a lightish brown on my skin, I cannot overdo it. 

How I apply it:
I lightly dipped my brush into the product and brush the blush on the apple of my cheeks. As for the bronzer I apply it from the side of my forehead to hallows of my cheek bones and under my chin for a sculpted look. (the # 3 method)

Product Rating:
4.5 out of 5

The blush is a subtle color on me, so this will be great for a natural look. I usually like brighter colors  on my skin, but this one give me a really nice natural, innocent flush on my skin .  I have Asian olive light medium to medium (summer) complexion and the color applies very subtle and natural looking. The color is buildable and  is suited for a fair to light skin color.  I don't think this will show up well on medium to dark complexion.

The bronzer color is really nice, since it does give me a hint of contour color without looking fake or overdoing it.

The blush and bronzer has a nice smooth and silky texture to it. They are both pretty long wearing. I wore about 5 hours and it didn't fade. On my hand swatch it the blush looks like it has a sheen finish but once applied on my cheeks it is a matte finish.
