Wild Raspberry by Covergirl

I was just browsing a local dollar store after I picked up a card and came across a little basket with lots of these Cheekers blushes by CoverGirl marked down to $1.50. I took a little look through them and found this Wild Raspberry shade which I'd never heard of. The Cheekers blushes are pretty nice little blushes and I own two of them which I like (Natural Rose and True Plum) so I decided to try this out.

Wild Raspberry must be a discontinued or limited edition blush since it's not listed on the CoverGirl website and I've never seen it around before. A quick web search showed me that it did exist once upon a time, though! I saw a lot of good reviews for it on MakeupAlley, and a lot of people were sad it was no longer available.

It's, of course, a pretty raspberry shade with some shimmer.  The shimmer isn't overpowering or too noticeable, though. The blush is very firmly pressed and kind of.. hard.

It comes in the usual little plastic compact and comes with a little brush - which is pretty much useless..

It's kind of sheer and pigmentation isn't the greatest. It gives a nice little flush of color to the cheeks, kind of like you'd been playing out in the snow. It is buildable, though. Application is nice and it's pretty easy to blend as well.

It's a nice little blush for the fall and winter.. If you come across it I think it's worth a try.
