Powder blush, cheek stain, antioxidant defense, and hydrating skin conditioner all in one! The cutting-edge micro-milled, long-wear powder stain never clings to fine lines and wrinkles. Gives you that glow of a stain in a powder!
It Cosmetics’ Vitality Cheek Flush powder blushes are marketed as cheek stains that will hydrate the skin. The blush comes in three (3) shades. This review is for the shade Radiant in Rose–a shimmery pinkish red shade.
This blush comes in a circular compact with a full-sized mirror inside. Th material is made of slightly rubberized plastic.
Radiant in Rose is an intensely pigmented reddish rose shade with a healthy dose of silver shimmer.
The formula for this blush isn’t quite as smooth or silky as I’d like it to be, I suspect because of the shimmer particles. I also don’t find it any more “hydrating” than a normal blush.
This blush does contain some ingredients that are good for your skin–a big plus when it comes it a makeup product.
This blush maintains its vibrancy throughout the day, though I didn’t see any “staining” effect.
Overall, I think this is a good blush, but the claims for what it can do are over-stated.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
The shade is bright and the powder isn’t as smooth as it could be, so you have to be careful to use a small amount of powder at a time to avoid getting an uneven finish. The best application is achieved in thin layers using a fan brush.
