This summer I have been all about products that are easy to apply, easy to wear and relatively long-lasting. Revlon has definitely been a standout brand with filling this criteria – first I fell in love with the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and now the Photoready Cream Blushes.
As I have really dry skin you’d think I’d have been all over cream blushes long ago but when I first tried them I never really found one that took my fancy so I brushed them to the side for years. Several months ago when browsing the Revlon counter at Farmers I noticed these but for some reason I didn’t get one.
Fast forward to just before Christmas and I got a phone call from my mama and sister (who live in Australia) saying their local chemist was having 50% off all makeup and asking what I wanted. I immediately thought of these blushes so I asked them to get me one. They sent me ‘Flushed’ (the bright pink) for Christmas and I’ve been wearing it almost non-stop since. It’s great for everyday wear and I love pairing it with a bright pink lip. Being a cream blush it’s perfect for summer and gives me a flushed – as the name suggests – and dewy look. It almost has a cream-to-powder formula in its feel as you apply it, as well as in its longevity – it doesn’t rub off immediately like other cream blushes I’ve tried – but its look is definitely that of a cream blush. It’s dewy and fresh looking – perfect for spring and summer! Last week I posted about Kmart’s makeup sale where I picked up two more of these blushes – Coral Reef and Pinched.
Have you tried the Revlon Photoready Cream Blushes? What did you think of them?
I’d love to know what your favourite cream blushes are – I want to try more now!
