If you are lucky enough to live in the US/Canada then the Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blushes will be old news to you but as they have yet to hot the UK/Europe? shores ( I believe they are due to launch later this month) I thought I'd share these with my readers who have yet to discover them.
In the US/Canada three shades were launched - Coral Reef (bright red based coral) Flushed (fuchsia pink) and Pinched (light peach). How many will hit the shelves in the UK I do not know, only time will tell but as there is only three shades perhaps for once Revlon will indulge us and launch all three shades...fingers crossed.
The first thing that struck me about the Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blushes was the packaging, it is so similar to the recent MAC Casual Colour Lip and Cheek Creams and the Bobbi Brown Rouge Pots not only in appearance but also in sizeonly I would imagine that unlike MAC and Bobbi Brown when these do launch they will have a smaller price tag.
I bought two of the three shades via eBay (sadly the seller I bought these from has none currently listed but a quick search should find you similar international sellers) - the two shades I went for are Pinch which I will review in a moment and Coral Reef, I decided against Flushed as pink blushes rarely make an appearance in my make-up bag.
Pinched is of course a light milky peach tone and one I do not recommend for deep medium and above skin tones as it is almost ashen on my light medium toned skin and truthfully not a shade I'm all that comfortable with as I feel it washes me out slightly!
Sadly the formula and texture of the Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blushes is fairly thin so you do have to layer the shade on to achieve a good dose of coverage - that being said i'm sure lighter skin tones will have no problem with the colour pay off but mid-deep skin tones will have to layer this shade on.
I found the texture to be thin, soft, silky and when applied it settles to a semi matte finish which is very natural in appearance and worked well with my oily skin, I do however feel that this formula may cling to dry patches.In terms of application I found the formula/texture to lend itself well both brush and finger application, in terms of wear Pinched wore for around 8 hours on my oily skin which I was more than satisfied with.
Are you excited for the Revlon Photo Ready Cream Blushes to launch in the UK?
