I received this cream blush palette from Makeup Revolution for free as part of one of their special deals where you spend a certain amount and receive some bonus products. I am not really a cream face product girl but I was excited to give these a try.
The packing of this palette is MUR’s standard black shiny plastic with a huge mirror. The pans are round and easy to access with a blush brush without mixing the colours unintentionally, which I enjoy, particularly with creams.
The top row of this palette offers a red rose, bright pink, peach and rose pink. The texture of these blushes is creamy to the touch and almost a little greasy to feel. These swatches involved swirling my finger twice around the pan and then swatching once on my arm – they are pigmented, that is for sure!
The bottom row offers a dark nude, more pinks and a coral blush. As you can see from the swatches there are a few similar colours in the palette which would be a criticism in my opinion.
I apply these cream blushes with a small stipple brush and I find, although they apply very boldly initially, they do blend out well. I was worried from the greasy feel that these blushes would break down the foundation and/or make my skin look more greasy but I have not found that to be the case which has been a pleasant surprise. I would say that cream face products do give you more glow but it wasn’t a greasy look by any means. These do last quite well on the skin but they aren’t the longest lasting blushes in my collection. I work in schools and find that these do last a work day for me so that is great.
Overall, I have been pleasantly surprised by the formula of these blushes but I wish that there was more diversity in the colours offered in this palette. If you enjoy a cream blush or are interested in experimenting with them for the first time, I would definitely say that this palette is worth a try 🙂
Have a fantastic day!
