INTRODUCTORY BEAUTY RANT
I have never used a cream blush before, but my understanding is that it shouldn't look too obvious and should always blend seamlessly into the skin, imparting a healthy flush. Time to take this for a spin...
After rubbing my finger tips over the blush, the colour appeared to be a dark and rosy tint which indicated that I wouldn't need very much to get the desired result. It also felt a little greasy, which was surprising as I thought the consistency would be relatively thick.
Once I started dabbing the product onto my cheeks and out towards the hair line, I was surprised at how quickly and easily it blended. Less than one minute later and I was done! Easy as.
The finish was a natural, deep rosy tint that lifted my complexion instantly and complemented the sheer pink colour of my lips. It also gave my cheekbones subtle depth which I quite liked.
Considering cream blush is renowned for being a tricky makeup staple to control, I felt that this was a lot easier to blend than powder. Being able to apply it with my fingers added to the simplicity of the process and it just went on so well.... wow, I'm actually gushing over this product!
Let's get serious. 'Betray' is quite a strong pigment which is probably more suited to the darker skinned lass as it can be quite bold against pale skin. On the upside, the colour comes out matte and stays on all day long meaning you don't have to touch up a gazillion times or aren't left with any blotchiness.
The other added benefit is that others who have purchased the product say that it works magically as a lip stain as well.
What more can I say than I am totally a cream blusher convert!
