Blush & Contour: Collection Cosmetics Gorgeous Glow Blocks


It is no secret that I love a good highlighter and for some reason the thing I have been doing for months now has a name, “strobing”. Blush and bronzer, on the other hand, aren't necessarily added to my daily make-up routine; mostly because I'm always running late and I would much rather spend those extra few minutes layering mascara on my lashes. Having said that, I love how simplified my routine has become from using these products. If I feel like wearing a blusher and a highlighter, I can do so in one go. Similarly, perfecting a bronze look couldn't be easier. Kudos to Collection for bringing these awesome little glow palettes to drugstore shelves for such a small price!


The Gorgeous Glow Blocks come in two different shades, the Bronzing Block and the Blush Block, and both consist of shimmering powder with different shades. They provide a smooth finish and are perfect for a bit of summer contouring and creating flawless cheekbones. Despite the low price, the formula is velvety-soft and a dream to blend. These are also highly pigmented, so apply with caution. A little goes a long way but they feel nice on the skin and are extremely long lasting.


Gorgeous Glow Blush Block £4.19
This beautiful rose gold blush is quickly becoming one of my favourites. With a good brush swirl around the compact, I smile to colour the apples of my cheeks then lightly sweep upwards the cheekbones towards the hairline. The best feature in my opinion is the ability to also highlight with a single product. The tiny shimmers give my skin such a radiant finish, ideal for the summer and that warm glow we all long for. The lighter shades are also great for highlighting the inner corner of your eyes, below the brow bone and down the bridge of your nose making this a must-have and a great all-time rounder.

Gorgeous Glow Bronzing Block £4.19
With a mix of light and dark browns (also good to be used as eyeshadows!!), this bronzer proves to be perfect for my skin tone. By using all colours mixed together, the result is a soft bronze glow with no harsh lines. I apply this product under my cheekbones, down the sides of my nose, on my temples and under my jaw line for that ultimate contour look. All in all, this has earned a well-deserved spot in my holiday make-up bag because I will get a lot of use out of one single palette (which in turn then leaves more space for lots and lots of lipsticks :p).

Wear them together, over your base or even alone; these blocks will not disappoint. I honestly cannot think of anything bad to say, that is how much I love these. If you hurry you can get these on sale at Boots for £2.99 each, which I think is really good value for money. 

Have you guys tried these? Let me know what you think below.
I will see you beauties soon!

  3. I love highlighters too and I would love to try these ones! Yes, much easier to wear it as a highlighter and blush together, it simplifies a lot the daily routine! I had a similar one by Bobbi Brown, but the airline company lost my luggage and it was there :) I may buy one of these ones now, the colors look great!

  5. They look a lot like the Bobby Brown Shimmer Bricks. And like some very hyped Catrice Blushes. Very pretty.

  10. The colors are so pretty! However, I am absolutely hopeless with makeup, and I think getting more products will just add to my makeup graveyard of things I never use haha. It just all seems so daunting!

  30. I wish I knew the best way to apply bronzer/contouring. How do you feel about that? Do you think it only good on people of a certain complexion or something for everyone?
