The packaging on these is clear pink plastic with an orchid printed on the top. There’s also a mirror on the inside. They’re quite sturdy, so safe to carry around in your handbag.


They come in two finishes, matte and glow. The difference is that the glow finish has a slight shine.
I bought two of the glow finish blushes, Megabyte and Virtual Orchid. Megabyte is described as a mellow lime and Virtual Orchid is described as cool lavender. I’d say that’s pretty accurate even on my olive undertone skin.


As you can see they’re not as strong on the skin as they are in the pan.

Here’s the thing, I’m not a huge fan of these. I fell out of love with cream blushes a little while back and was hoping these would renew it. However, I find these quite hard to blend. They’re very much better-applied with a finger and the brush that was released at the same time isn’t the best option.
Megabyte is very pigmented and comes out quite bright my skin. It’s great for using more as a highlight tone shifter. I have more trouble getting Virtual Orchid to show on my skin as it’s almost the perfect blush for me.
They also being cream only tend to last as long as my base does. So if I’m having a really oily day they don’t last long.

There’s nothing wrong with these blushes but for me, they’re not worth $22.

If you’d like to get them they’re available at Lime Crime for $22.
