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 Rose Glow, which is a muted desert brick 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!
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.
Rose Glow is a fantastic, natural red shade that is brick-based. The color can be applied in a sheer, translucent layer of color or layered for a stronger red shade.
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.
For $14.00 you get 0.2 ounces (6 grams) of product. This is a great price for the amount of product you get.
