THE CREAMY GLOW (LIP & CHEEK)
I've tried a lot of cream blushers in my time, and I this is one of my favourites. The colour range is wide. I brought the colour Isadore, a bright pink, the colour looks a little scarily intense in the pot but much more natural on the cheeks (although I do like bright blusher colours, I also use Nars powder blush in Desire!).
The colour is very build-able, so you can adjust the intensity accordingly. What I like is the consistency, some cream blushers are a bit streaky or can be difficult to really blend in, this one is very creamy and therefore you can create a very natural blushed from within look. When I have time I've started using a stipple brush to work it in too, which also creates an even more natural effect and does seem to makes it last longer.
However longevity is my main gripe, and this is not an issue exclusive to this particular cream blush. This is the main issue with all cream blushers I've used!! I've started to set with a little face powder or even powder blush on top, which does help it to last longer.
Overall I would repurchase again and will be trying other colours. I often use it on my lips too so it's quite a multi-tasking product.

What a statement colour this one is! Don't be afraid of it's bright lights as many of my friends were when i showed them my new favourite creamy blush! Although it looks overpowering it's perfect for my pale skin and gives me just the right amount of colour especially in my home countries climate (Scotland) to make my cheeks look bright and flattering. Because it's a cream instead of the usual powder i find it's best to use with a stippling brush and just work it in for an easy and smooth application that lasts all day! :)
