Hello Waffle Blushed Collection Swatches and Review

I'm excited to finally be sharing swatches of Hello Waffle Cosmetics' Blushed collection!  This rose gold and purple collection was created to celebrate owner Christine's 24th birthday.  It was during the end of August; I received my order around September but one color was missing so I held off posting the swatches until I had the whole collection.  Christine shipped my missing shadow immediately and upgraded it to a full size!  She also included a full sized Waffle balm with my original order ♥

Along with the Blushed collection, I ordered a tinted balm and samples of two highlighters as well.  Everyone had been raving about Lavender Cream, so I knew I had to try it out.

Overall, the Blushed collection is cohesive, beautiful, and good quality.  There are enough color variations to make many different looks.  I like that there are a few lighter colors to use as inner corner highlights and some mattes as well.  As usual, I enjoy Hello Waffle's lip products, the gloss gave a subtle yet feminine glow to my face and the balm was a great nude balm for smoky eyes.  I love using Royal Icing as an outer corner shade, but my favorite in the set would have to be Centerpiece as it's a beautiful rose gold.  This was an excellent way to celebrate Christine's birthday and I'm looking forward to more collections!
