@PerilouslyPale said it best when she said that 2014 is year of the blush, and it is SO TRUE. This is the year that we’re getting cheek products in a big way. The new trend isn’t just on colour – it’s formula so innovative that blush blends easily and looks natural. If this is a step that you normally step, then you need to add atleast a hint of hit back into your regimen.
Make Up For Ever is of course at the forefront of product innovation and they’ve reformulated their cream blush so that it’s now in a pan instead of in a pump. The cream blends into the skin easily and can be worn sheer or heavy. If you want sheer coverage, just blend blend blend with your fingers, and for more pigmentation just tap it into the cheek instead.
There are 16 colours to choose from: I got 315 Peach Beige which is really a rusty beige that looks really natural on me.
Even without powder, these have amazing lasting power – mine lasted 12 hours easily with just a bit of fading, and when I powdered my skin there was no fading at all.
Because these are so pigmented, they’re not at all heavy or greasy on the skin. They’re much lighter in feeling than MAC’s cream blushes, and a bit more waxy than your typical cream to powder blush. Once on, you forget that it’s there, and that’s what you want out of blush anyway.
And if you’re a novice at blush application then check out this application guideline. Cream blush is the perfect product to practice with since your fingers really give you the most control and you get a true idea of where you’re placing product.
The blush sets to a glowy satin finish – nice for everyday and especially nice if you have dry skin.
