Having raved about the Maxfactor Creamy Touch Miracle Blush in Soft Pink I just knew I had to get my mitts on two of the other shades. I’m a bit of a cream blush nerd and you can check out my run down of the best summery cream blushes for the certain skin types HERE but here is a quick review of the two new shades to grace my collection.
03 Soft Copper
This is probably my favourite of the two new shades I picked up as I really think there’s something fairly unique about this colour. If MAC Gingerly blush came in cream form this would be it! It’s so natural on the skin and gives a very ‘true’ flush to the cheeks. I’ve used it when I’ve been pale and when I’ve fake tanned and I think it looks lovely on both skintones. I apply it using my fingers as it’s not too OTT on pigment that you have to be too careful. This has been a great go to shade for work as it’s super fast to apply and lasts nicely throughout the day!
09 Soft Murano
This pale raspberry colour is another very pretty shade, I did need to use my trusty Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply this one as it’s very pigmented. I like this on a day when I’m wearing a tinted moisturiser, BB cream or a sheer foundation as it definitely gives you a ‘been out on a windy day’ look to the cheeks. It’s probably the only one out of this range that I actually like as a lip colour, applied with a little lip balm or 8 hour cream this is a nice trans-seasonal shade that doesn’t look over-done!
My only criticism is the awful packaging but for £6.99 you don’t have to be too precious with them. The only shade I haven’t picked up yet is 07 Soft Candy as I find there’s something daunting about a red cream blusher, I bet this looks stunning on women of colour but on my pale skin it’s not something I think will suit me. Let me know your favourite drugstore blusher, I’d love to add a few new ones to my wish list…
