Ka-bloom! These wonderful washes of color give cheeks definition and radiance while enhancing the skin’s natural bloom underneath. Beautiful pigments free of skin-darkening, -irritating, and stress-and acne-causing ingredients.
In the past, I did a review of VMV Hypoallergenics’ Re-Everything Anti-Age Primary Treatment Cream. I had pegged the company as a skincare brand, but then I noticed that they also sell makeup items.
Their line of Skin Bloom Blushes contains eight (8) different shades. This review is for the Skin Bloom Blush in the shade Bellini–a bronzed, peachy-pink-gold.
VMV Hypoallergenics’ packaging is the niftiest around and this blush’s packaging is no exception. The box it comes in is eco-friendly. The blush itself is then housed in a leather-like box that’s super luxurious-feeling. The blush comes in a light-weight, white plastic compact that shuts closed and contains a full-sized mirror inside. You also get a blush brush.
Bellini is a wonderful summer color for any skin color and would also be beautiful on deeper skin tones all-year-round. It’s a bronze shade with gold, pink, and peach shimmer. The color is multi-dimensional and very pigmented.
The formula for this blush is also fantastic. It’s soft without being dusty or crumbly. It smooths out evenly across the skin.
For those of you looking for more “healthy” cosmetic products, you’ll appreciate that this blush is dye-, fragrance-, and paraben-free.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
You can layer it if you’d like, but the shade is so pigmented that you probably won’t need to. If you have fair skin, be sure to use a fan brush or something with sparsely-packed bristles to ensure you don’t apply too much color.
For $40.00, you get 0.16 ounces (4.5 grams) of blush. Jane Iredale’s PurePressed Blush costs $27.00 and contains 0.12 ounces of product while Dr. Hauschka’s Rouge Powder costs $29.95 and contains 0.17 ounces. VMV Hypoallergenics’ blush is on the expensive side, but keep in mind that you also get a brush and case.
