Packaging: 9/10

This cream blush comes in a plastic pot with a screw-on top.

Quality: 8.75/10

The blush has strong pigmentation but can be worn sheerly or intensified by layering the product on the cheeks. The formula is a bit stiff in the pot, but transfers easily enough when you use a brush. The wear time is good, but does fade a little after about 4 hours.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

Like with many cream blushes, this one will take a little blending to smooth out patchy areas. But you do have the flexibility of wearing the color in a sheer layer or adding more layers for a stronger color.

Price: 9.5/10

For $13.00 you get 12.4 grams (0.44 ounces) of product. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes cost about $8.00 and contain 5.6 grams of product. NYX Cream Blushes cost $7.00 and contain 3.5 grams. Revlon’s original cream blushes cost $10.00 and contain 3.4 grams.
