I never knew that a reddish brown cream blush would look so good on my complexion. I mean, I always go for peach, pink or coral when it comes to my cheeks. But this little gem from H&M turned out to be a neat surprise! It looks so natural on me, like how I usually look post-workout (Yeah, I usually turn red when I’m sweating, babe.)
As you will remember, I got this cream blush from my Italian trip beauty haul. It was for about 7-8 euros. I bought it just for the sake of trying it, and mostly because I saw a couple of ladies getting a box. Not knowing what to expect, I got a shade that’s a little different from what I usually wear – Cameo Brown. But to be honest, I tried it on the store and wasn’t really expecting much. I just liked the packaging – very small and travel-friendly.
It was only until I got home in Manila when I was able to truly test and see its wonders. I brought it with me in one of my work trips, also initially thinking that it would work as an alternate color for the lips as well. Well, it didn’t work for the lips though – it was purely a cream product for the cheeks.
A cream blush with a fantastic shade on me, lasts for about 4-5 hours on me, and works longer when set with translucent powder or a powder blush (I use MAC Dame to set). It also appears dewy, not oily. More like having healthy, rosy, post-workout cheeks.
Who doesn’t want that, right?
So now, it’s become a part of my permanent liquid/cream blushes collection. I wish I can go back to Europe just to get another shade. Lol!
Happy Beauty Friday!
