I first wore this on my daughters birthday 2 years ago and have been wearing it ever since.My mum on the day was like I love your blusher what is it and where can I buy it from.She said it looked so nice and dewy which is what I want.I told her but let her have mine and I bought a new one that was the soft murino, I usually wear soft coper as I have dark brown hair and dark brown eyes and this colour looks nice on me.You do have to have a dewy foundation with this as my skin is combi dry cheeks so this makes me look nice and fresh, I use pixiwoo stippling brush or fingers and it looks fine, blends really well.Well it works for me and iv'e had a few comments on it so Im happy enough with it.

I bought this in Soft Pink. The colour is nice enough. The texture is a bit lipglossy for me. I don't think the staying power is there for me. If I was in Australia, I would buy the Bloom cream blush. The texture is a little dryer, which I think adds to the staying power. (The colours are nicer, too!)

Funny when I first bought and tried this blush I could not get on with it at all. I am not good with cream blushes. I want to love them- the lovely fresh, dewy, glowing effect they can produce is right up my street but the skin on my cheeks is quite dehydrated and even with primer and moisturiser it just seems to want to soak up the product; which results in dodgy patchy blush.
Anyway I thought I'd give this a go because it gets featured in magazines all the time and I don't want to miss out on something that might be brilliant! I bought Soft Pink #14. In the pot it isn't a very soft pink at all- it's bright and warm. The formula is gel like rather than cream in my opinion. You need very little to get an intense effect- I find that two or three very light dabs per cheek is enough for me. Application is, I think, where I went wrong the first time. I used my fingers and found it really difficult to get an even, natural blend that didn't look like a heat rash. However, I have given it another go using my trusty Une blusher brush (it is quite stiff, flat topped) and I achieved a much more diffuse and agreeable flush.
For my own skin tone I think a slightly redder shade would be a bit more natural and flattering on me but that isn't a fault of the product itself.

No, don't buy this. Just don't. It is not easy to work with, smells like those make up crayons for kids, and most importantly, I've never seen anyone look good in this.
I binned mine, wouldn't give this away, that would be rude.

This is worth its weight in gold. Such a beautiful texture! It's almost like a gel. It adds color and sheen, but no sparkle. It gives you that dewy, expensive looking skin, for a drug-store price! This product really blends into the skin and has a moist finish. I apply it with a dense, medium-size powder brush, which give me a thin coat, then I blend out the edges with my fingers and my foundation brush. I have oily skin and this seems to stay put. It may not stay in place during the really warm, humid weather, but it's been a perfect way to add freshness to my skin during the winter months. I have super-pale skin and the Soft Pink and Cardinal (which is a coral) are great. Tried the Murano but it's too dark.

Lovely product to wear over foundation, but not if you wear powder. Impossible to blend evenly.

Good blush! I've been using Shiseido, Clarins and Mac blushes for the past years but saw the good reviews for this Max Factor one. This blush I got in soft pink, which is not as soft as it sounds. It's a bright pinky peach. Because it's not a heavy or unnatural colour it's very easy to apply. The texture also makes it glide on. Which is better than a rather sticky creme blush of MAC I used before, in a similar colour. The packaging is cheap but I like that it is so small. It takes ages to finish blush so I much prefer to buy a smaller amount. Looking forward to check this stuff out in a few other colours although this one is pretty perfect.

I have this in soft pink and I love it! It is a natural pink colour which leaves a lovely glow to the skin. I apply it with my fingers and find its easy to blend. It lasts about 5 hours on me even when I powder over it so not the longest wearing product.
The packaging could definately be improved. I actually lost the lid of mine, but I depotted it into a travel container which is a better size anyway.

I have all 4 colours available in the UK and LOVE them all: soft pink (cute baby pink), soft candy (pretty red shade), soft copper (bronzy shade) and soft murano (a brighter fucsia - but sheer).
My favourites year round are soft pink and soft candy, as they give a pretty flushed look. When I am a bit more tanned, I LOVE soft copper and I think it's the perfect shade if you're going for the sun-kissed look.
Soft murano I reckon would be very pretty on olive skin tones, but on me I wear it either when I'm a bit darker or wear bronzer, or with smokey eyes!
They are not cheap (£7 for a little pot here in the UK), but they will last forever and they are very good quality. Easy to work with and blend, sheer but buildable, and great if you skin is normal to dry. I really prefer them in the colder months when my cheeks get drier and powders become a bit harder to work with and don't feel as nice on the skin.
You can apply these with a brush (say a stippling brush), but I prefer to use my fingers to help warm up the product.
The only downside is the flimsy cap - two of mine have cracked :(

I own this in four colors: soft copper, soft candy, soft murano and soft cardinal.
This is my current HG blush. I've developed dry skin over the course of my pregnancy so I decided to switch from powder to cream blushes. I didn't want to spend too much money on a high end product, because I never really thought of myself as a real blush fan, and cream blushes seemed a little intimidating and hard to control. Additionally, most drugstore cream or mousse blushes I swatched just looked and felt... well, cheap. Max Factor cream blushes completely changed that for me. Granted they are not at the low end of the drugstore price scale (I get mine on sale for 5€/pot), but they are the best cream blushes I've yet found in the drugstore, and have left me with results satisfying enough to not even be curious about high end products.
While (some of) the colors look shocking in the pots, they actually go on quite smoothly and blend even more easily than powder blushes for a very subtle, refreshing look. None of them have any shimmer that I could notice; these are pure pigment blushes, not illuminators. I use soft copper, a peach tone, as a neutral accent for bright, sunny summer days. Soft cardinal, a bright pink, is actually a nice, healthy flush on the cheeks for days where I feel tired or haven't gotten enough sleep and need a visual pick me up to fake an energetic and awake look. Soft murano, a mild plum, is something I use on overcast days or when I generally want a richer, slightly more flushed look. Soft candy, a red tone, is something I reserve for those days I want to wear a red statement lip or have a more wintery, flushed cheek look. All of these colors are very subtle and complimentary on my warm tan skintone, which I wasn't expecting at all; I can wear them with either neutral makeup or bold statement lipstick without feeling overly done or obvious. The key is to use only a tiny bit; it may seem like a poor value for the price you pay (I believe the pots are 5g each), but you really need so little to get a great look because the pigmentation is excellent. Those 'tiny' pots will last you the whole year, if not more than that!
There are cons, of course, the biggest one being the packing. It's cheap. It looks cheap, it feels cheap, and the pots are tiny enough that they're difficult to close properly - something important to make sure you do if you don't want your blush to dry out. The price is as stated, rather high for a drugstore blush. The color selection is limited, though I do enjoy every single one I have been able to find. And of course, if you apply this regularly with your fingertips there could be hygiene issues, as with all cream blushes / finger dipping products. I personally use a clean Sonja Kashuk flat topped brush to apply this blush; perfect size and bristle texture for the product, it's like the two were made for each other. ;-)
Even with all the cons, I love this blush to death. It takes so little product, and also so little work, to get the perfect amount on my cheeks for a natural flush. I always struggled with the 'is it too much/too little?' problem with my powder blushes, whether they were pigmented or not. The MF blushes are practically foolproof by comparison; they're so easy to blend away if you pick up too much, yet you don't have to squint at the mirror in 4 different kinds of light to see a color return on your cheeks. The one problem people with oilier skin might have is fading; as a dry skinned person, though, a light setting with a powder blush (especially if I want to add in a light shimmer) after the initial application keeps this on my cheeks for upwards of 8 hours, even with the constant contact my face gets from my toddler, my dog or my own hands. Highly recommended, especially for more mature women or those with dry skin.

Once again I am very pleasantly surprised by Maxfactor. I was looking for a cream blusher and because I've only ever used powder blushers, I didn't want to spend too much incase I found I should stick to powder blushers. Well I bought mine in Soft Murano and it's a truly lovely, natural colour. It reminds me of the colour models wear when "off duty" and are only wearing concealor, mascara and lipbalm. It's easy to apply, isn't sticky (something I'm always afraid of) and just seems to look like a water colour paint on canvas. I'm not mad about the packaging....I would take off half a lippie for that but since we can't do half lippies, I'm happy to give a full five. I am planning to collect a few more of these colours month by month. My only gripe is that these seem hard to find in my state in Australia. I have only seen them in the Chemist so far.

I love this blush! I have soft pink and it blends wonderfully, is so pigmented you just need a touch and it lasts all day giving a soft flush of colour without streaking or fading too much. On my fair skin I use a paler neutral powder blush as a base, and then this cream blush on the apples of my cheeks for a natural healthy 'pop'. I don't normally have much love for max factor but these blushes and the little eyeshadows in the same pots are great value for money. I took one lippie off for the packaging - although the little pots are a great size to carry around they feel and look pretty cheap and plasticky and the lid cracks easily if you're not careful. Other than that, I can't fault it.

I like cream blushes because I'm always rushing and I don't need brushes to apply so I went for this. I got the shade 'soft pink' which adds a really nice pink flush. Problem is my skin dries out quickly especially in winter and after a couple hours it fades away :( Other than that it's lovely.

I have two of these, murano n cardinal. They are pigmented n blend very easily, last all day n do not break me out. Normally I find cream blushes too dry for lips but these Max Factor ones are an exception! They work very well for lips too. The packaging is simple but very practical n convenient, I really luv them.

I pick soft pink color. wonderful! dab it on your cheeks using clean fingers or brush, set with powder and thats it, its not as pigmented but i like it bcos it creates very natural rosy cheeks. i love how its not too thick, soft and long lasting!
use dabbing motion and it should be fine.price is very okay, about $6 and it would last forever. the only problem is the packaging.. inefficient and unhygienic, the product rocks!

This is a fairly good cream blush, better than the Revlon cream blush but at the same price range.
It blends in nicely and is a bit translucent, it has a really natural look which I appreciate alot. The colour is also buildable so you can play around with the intensity.
My only problem with it is the packaging. I find it a bit unhygienic for something that is meant for your face.

Love! It is so rare to get a drugstore product of such high quality. There are few cream blushes available in the drugstore and I didn't expect this to be all that great however, the pigmentation is very good and it is so easy to blend. The product has a very light smooth texture and gives a nice glowly look to the cheeks without being drying. At £6 it is very affordable and its stays in place without need for touch ups during the day. I have soft copper which very much reminds me of the NARS cream blush in penny lane although the Max Factor is even more pigmented! I also have it in soft pink which I love equally - this reminds me of the Bobbi Brown pale pink cream blush although the MF miracle touch is again more pigmented. I am so excited to collect the other colors from this line. Wonderful!

Lovely product. Easy to use, very natural looking. Nice small package so is easy to store. Blends well for a completely natural flush. I bought both soft pink and soft candy and gave some as gifts to friends. Fool proof product.

This stuff is great - nice colour, goes on and blends easily. Packing could have a pop-up lid to improve it, but that's my only complaint. Love it!
