Packaging: 9/10

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

Quality: 8.25/10

This color is extremely subtle on the cheeks. Even on my light skin (NC20), it takes layering for the color to be noticeable.

The color has extremely small, golden shimmers that don’t show through very well on the skin.

The formula is a bit stiff in the pot, but transfers easily enough when you use a brush. The wear time is also 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.

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.
