Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush - Coral Reef
Thursday, 16 May 2013
We all seem to go a little crazy for coral as soon as the rare sight of the British sun makes even the briefest of appearances, and I'm no exception. I've been completely converted to cream blush and rarely reach for my powder offerings these days. Pair this obsession with the most beautiful bright coral shade ever, and we could be onto a winner...
I decided to pick up a couple of these cream blushers by Revlon - this shade, Coral Reef, and a hot fuschia number, Flushed. I have to admit, the colour of this in the pan terrified me. I thought there would be no way of me applying this and not looking like a clown. But I was wrong. As vibrant as the colour is in the pan, when swatched the formula really sheers itself out without much work. I use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush for applying this, and I actually have to swirl my brush quite a bit to pick up enough colour. However, this means it's great for building up colour - you can add the subtlest flush of barely-there colour, or make a bolder statement. Formula wise, this feels like velvet on my skin. It's not dewy or 'sticky', just really soft, easy to work with and creamy. It really perks up my complexion and makes me look healthy. I also love the texture of this, it manages to blend seamlessly with the rest of my make-up and leaves a gorgeous, natural finish.
I'm so impressed with this little number and I can see myself using it endlessly when summer rolls around.
What do you think about cream blush? Are you crazy for coral?
