Packaging: 9/10
This packaging is exactly the same as the packaging for the previous Blushcremes. The compacts are made of black plastic and snap shut. They’re durable and lightweight–good for taking in your kit or traveling with. The outer box packaging has a retro, throw-back design.

Quality: 9.75/10

Optimistic Orange is a bright, classic orange color. Florida is a medium, blue-based pink (i.e. fuchsia). Restores Dazzle! isn’t quite purple enough to be a “plum,” but is, instead, a soft cardinal red.

All of these colors are richly pigmented. The formula is creamy and smooth, applying opaquely without being oily. The cream formula can give you a dense, bold finish with strong color, or a translucent finish with more subtle color. Either way, these blushes maintain their rich pigmentation.

I also find these longer-wearing than other cream blushes I regularly use. Particularly if you set your face with powder or put a powder blush on top, you can expect these cream blushes to last all day without noticeable fading.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

You can apply this product with a brush or your fingers. They can be layered for intense color and blended out for sheer color.

Price: 9/10

For $20.00, you get 5.6 grams (0.19 ounces) of product.

    I love all three of these, I hope they won’t be too bright for my skin

    Wow…Restorse Dazzle! is such a great color! I don’t think I’d wear it but it looks especially great for darker-skinned ladies. And I like the reddish tone for some reason! I guess a more brown tone would be more natural but I still really like it!

    Would the optimistic orange and go well with medium skin tones? NC 35-37

    Thanks for the awesome swatches! I have always used powder blushes but because of the beautiful shades you featured, I would be willing to give the creme blend a shot. May I ask if this particular collection will be available in Macy’s or Nordstrom?
