MUA Mosaic Blusher in English Rose: Review and Swatch


MUA's single blushers surprised me with their strong pigmentation and I've barely made a dent in the one I own, but I still had to give the mosaic blusher a try. This became considerably popular lately and, like their most popular products, sold out on their website for some time, and it was MIA from my local Superdrug for a long time too! Thankfully I managed to get my hands on it, and it's just as I'd hoped - beautiful.


I'm super pale so I tend to steer clear of blusher, it makes me look embarrassed. But given the name 'English  Rose', I had high hopes for this blusher, and it's not failed to impress. 



Each of the colours present in this mosaic perfectly complement each other and when blended together, they create this gorgeous pale pink with silvery undertones, so it works for both blush and highlighting. I'm in love with the light lavender shade here, if I could find a brush small enough to single it out, I'd try it as an eyeshadow, but alas, my fingers aren't precise enough for that job, but it's definitely an option, all these shades would look great solo!

I've used this every day since I bought it and I haven't even made a crease in the pan, so I can see it's going to last me a long time! I fear the product will last a lot longer than the fairly weak lid hinge. Saying that, I always love MUA's accessible packaging that allows you to see what product's inside without opening it.

This blusher has finally brought me out of my scaredy-cat mode, with a hint of colour it's hard for me to be heavy-handed with this (makes a change!) so I'm grateful to MUA for taking us pale women into consideration! 

Grab this beauty for £2.50 at a Superdrug that stocks the Professional range.

What's your favourite blusher?

  2. I love this blusher it is really nice and subtle and doesn't add lots of colour but a nice little pinkness to the cheeks.

    1. So true! It's well pigmented but not in a bad clown-y way!

  3. Ooh love the mix of colours in this! Bargain price as well.My local superdrug doesn't do a very big range of MUA products so doubt I'll be able to get my hands on this!

    1. Definitely, I can never seem to dislike an MUA product! Oh that's rubbish, they renovated loads of Superdrugs lately, even the smallest ones, so hopefully yours will be next! x
