Review & Swatches: Sephora Double Contouring Cream Blush in “Poppy Pink”

Sephora Double Contouring Cream Blush in Poppy Pink

Availability: Sephora
Price: $14.00

Company’s Description

This silky, contouring cream blush conditions and moisturizes the skin upon application while providing a flush of healthy color. The revolutionary blush sculpts in two ways: its Portulaca Complex smoothes, while the cream-to-powder finish contours cheekbones for a young, beautiful look. The weightless formula effortlessly blends into the skin and the micronized pigments provide eight hours of natural-looking, budge-proof color.

Sephora’s line of Double Contouring Cream Blushes includes six (6) shades. This review is for the shade Poppy Pink, which is a bright azalea pink color.

Note: All of the shades are currently out of stock, probably because of Sephora’s recent VIB sale. They should be coming back soon!

Packaging: 9/10

This blush comes in a round, domed compact with a clear lid. You fold open the compact and the lid actually opens all the way up on its own. The plastic around the lid is rubberized.

Quality: 9/10

Poppy Pink is a bright azalea pink shade, but it is very wearable and buildable, giving you the option to wear a soft, translucent layer of color or a more bold showing of pink.

The formula is very soft–like a pillow–but leaves a powder-like finish.

The color doesn’t have any issues staying vibrant through the day, though this formula is less transfer-resistant than a normal powder. If you accidentally touch your face or are someone who blots your face during the day, you may find this product comes off more easily than a regular cream or powder blush.

Ease of Use: 9/10

This blush transfers onto and shows up on the skin easily. The cream-to-powder formula isn’t quite as seamless as many powders at first, so you do need to work in small strokes to smooth out the finish.

Price: 9.5/10

For $14.00 you get 0.2 ounces (6 grams) of product. This is a great price for the amount of product you get.
