So I love creme blushes, especially in the summer and definitely more pigmented colors. I picked this up on a whim at CVS for around $9-11, I forget exactly.
I never, ever reach for it or use it. The color is fine, but the consistency and texture of it just isn't very creamy or easy to blend... I don't have dry skin and I always use a moisturizer so I dunno what the deal is with this. I also detest the packaging - awkward to use, bulky and unattractive.
I always see it sitting in my makeup drawer and think what a waste it was - I would not repurchase.
The color has no payoff. I can probably use this whole product on my face, and you'll never see the color. It's nothing.
The formulation is nice though. Maybe this in another color will work.
This was a so-so product. It didn't really look like I was wearing blush and the lack of variety in shades was ridiculous. I usually rubbed half of my makeup off by using this.
I'm kind of on the fence about this product. It is a lovely color and gives a gorgeous natural glow to cheeks. The packaging is great too.. love the little pop out mirror. However, it seems to disappear about half an hour after I apply it, and it's a little pricey for a drugstore blush. If you don't mind constant reapplication, it's a nice blush.
This is a really nice product. Gives a very natural, peachy glow and you really can't screw up the application. I bought it because I heard it's a dupe for MAC ladyblush. I removed one star and said I wouldn't repurchase because of the price. Drugstore prices have gotten out of hand. For almost the same price, I could go buy the actual MAC blush and get the nicer packaging. From now on, I think I'm going to limit my drugstore makeup purchases to WnW, NYX, and only buy Revlon/Loreal/Maybelline during BOGO sales.
PROS: it's great for those with dry skin and can't wear powder products very much. That's the reason why I looked into buying a cream blush. No offensive smell, stays on till you remove makeup (ie: color won't fade).
CONS: hard to blend and get used to applying the product without looking as though you've got a concentration of blush on your cheeks in one spot; in Canada, there are now only 2 color selections. Does this mean it will phase this out of the market soon?
I don't remember exactly how much I paid for this but it was on a major sale during Christmas. Just looked up the price at London Drugs and it's $11.99 CDN b4 taxes at regular price.
I just spotted Revlon cream blush in Rosy Glow (09) when I
thought I would be buying Dr Hauschka in 02, but the store was all out of Dr H (and I'll still probably get it- I tried it; it's a brighter pink, and it's a powder, but it gives me the same healthy, flattering, and natural flush that I'm looking for)
So short story long here, I bought this Revlon and I like it well enough. Mainly because it seems to be a goof-proof creme blush; it's just the right kindof color for easy application- on me, anyway- you can see it, but it's not like a streak-of-pigment-see- it's just a...it's a rosy glow. (They finally got a name right.)
I used a very very light touch (fingers) and rubbed it where I wanted glow, and to see what it looked like in different places. The extra advantage of this blush, I think, is that it contours definitely, but subtly.
Mind you, I've only just got it, and I'm wearing it for the first time, and it's not daylight, so I can't be 100% on its seeming perfection, but so far, so very good- I will update if there is a major change.
UPDATE: occasionally can look a bit too...cakey's too strong, but "visible texture" I guess, as the hours go by. I haven't been using it because of that, and I wear EL DW or DW light, so I think it will all be "too much" together. I've knocked off a couple of lippies because it doesn't wear as well as I originally thought it did. Unless I "rediscover it" (who knows, it might be what I need during the summer) I probably wouldn't buy again.
I liked this, seeing as it applied sheer and a lovely rose colour. Looked natural, though I prefer Revlon's Barely Buff colour which acts as a bronzer/blush/contour. It blends well (I used a Quo blush brush) though a flatter cream blush brush would have probably picked and applied product better. I don't like the circular shape of the tin though - the brush picks out the middle and leaves tricky rings of product as you wear it down. I end up struggling to get the remainder of the product on the brush. Overall, nice consistency (really velvet), a nice price especially when even slightly discounted, and lasts for a couple months. Colour is a wee bit intense on my SUPER!pale skin, but otherwise would be good for all skintones if you built it up to the right consistency. Also, careful to apply to cheeks and not entire side of face. You'll look like you did some heavy lifting (;
I love how natural it looks on my skin! The product is pretty sheer so, you can never really over-apply, but the blush is very build-able. I love the mirror the product comes with too :). A good dupe for mac's creamblush in lasyblush :D
This color does not look good on my pale skin.I really like a light pink glow and I think this was to dark. I like the texture and packaging, the mirror idea was really cool. It is expensive for a drugstore product. I will probably give this to a friend or family member who can give it use, because I know I will not.
