Cream Blush

About a month ago, I was in need of some more blush.  I ran into Target for a quick purchase and just grabbed the first product that caught my eye.  It wasn’t until I applied my everyday makeup the following morning that I discovered the blush I purchased in a hurry was, in fact, a cream rather than powder.

At first, I was disappointed in myself, mad for rushing to purchase a product I had never tried and ending up with a cream blush that I had no idea how to apply.  Obviously, the blush brush I had always used wasn’t going to work, and without any other blush options to choose from I was forced to give it a try.  And I’m sure glad I did!  It has been a game changer for me and I doubt if I will ever return to my old ways again.

Using the pad of my middle finger, I gently skimmed the center of the product.  My first impression was that it felt cool to the touch and almost that of playdough consistency.  The pigment was darker than I expected, but beautiful nonetheless with a hint of shimmer.

I applied the blush to the apples of my cheeks in light sweeping motions starting from the inside out.  It wasn’t nearly as drastic and I had feared.  In fact, I had to repeat the process several times to acquire my desired tone.

My overall thoughts were that it was easy to blend and not overdone.  I was afraid it would come off too harsh or appear to be “sitting” on top of my foundation and powder, but that was not the case at all.  It is very natural looking and the longevity of it surpassed that of the powder blush, which had me thinking, “I should really wear cream blush more often.”  And so I have!
