When Merit beauty reached out to me to try out a few of their products, I thought now this is a brand I might like! Clean, minimal, vegan… So here’s my Merit beauty review.

flush balm
Flush Balm in Beverly Hills

Flush Balm $28

This blush comes packaged up in a short stick form. It’s a light creamy tint and the color, Beverly Hills was just perfect for my skin tone. Flush Balm comes in five different shades. I loved that it was not heavy or cakey but creamy and easy to blend with your fingertips. It even makes for a perfect travel companion because of its compact size. I will definitely be using it this summer. I give this one a thumbs up.

Day Glow in Bounce

DayGlow $30

I just love a good highlighter. But even more, I love one that’s easy to apply, blend and go. Merit beauty did well with this highlighting balm. It gives a dewy, soft glow without all the sparkle that many other highlighters give off. Did I mention it’s hydrating? Dry skin girls rejoice. This highlighter will not dry you out. It’s also packaged in an easy-to-apply stick form and comes in three shades. Bounce was great on my skin tone. I would buy this one again for sure.

Brow 1980 $24

This brow pomade comes in three shades. It will fluff, shape and groom your brows as well as provide your brows some color. I’m not used to using a brow pomade but I will say that it did last all day, with no smudging and it helped add some volume to my brows. I liked that I could fluff them out a bit, too. Sadly, my brows are victims of the 90s and aren’t too thick so this helped with that. I also like that Brow 1980 contains vitamin B5 which conditions and strengthens the brows. I am more of a brow pencil girl so I may not re-purchase this one but if you like pomades it is a nice one.
