If you’re an avid reader of Short Presents you know that I am the queen of rosy cheeks! Blush is one of those products that I seriously could not live without. And I’ve been very loyal to my blush brand (Lancome) for over 5 years, that is until now…
Okay so I’m not breaking up with my lancome blush, but I am straying just a tad! But seriously though the HD cream blush from Make Up Forever is AH-MAZING! It’s hands down my favorite product I’ve tried from Make Up Forever, and let’s be fair they make some really great stuff!
I got my hands on a sample of the HD Cream blush in #330, and it’s SO close to my usual “Rose Romantique” from Lancome. I love the color of this blush, but I also REALLY like about Make Up Forever HD blush is it’s super rich creamy texture. I have to admit I was a little weary about it at first because cream blush seemed kind of scary to me since I’d actually never used it before. Something about the cream blush make me think it would be streaky and it would look like racing stripes on my cheeks rather than a natural flushed look. But it wasn’t like that at all! The color blended so effortlessly into my skin, and I love its saturated creamy finish.
Because it’s cream it really gets itself into the skin, and it’s difficult to explain, but it looks vibrant in comparison to a powder finish. And also coming out of winter where your skin is more dry than a dessert it kind of feels nice to apply something wet to your ultra dry skin. I used my angled side of my Double Ended Sculpting Brush (#158) (read that full review here), and I loved the slanted brush for precise application.
And it stayed on ALL DAY!! And I really put this product to the test! This blush lasted through a full day of work followed by several dance classes and it was still going strong while I was making dinner!
