MUA have launched so many new exciting products this month that it is a little difficult to keep up.
I know I have found myself at my local MUA stand like a little girl on Christmas day,
wide eyed and full of wonderment...i'm easily excited in case you haven't noticed.
Anyway enough about that and on to the new cream blushes!
Truth be told they are packaged very similarly to the powder blushes in the range,
long, clear plastic and black packaging that may not be the prettiest of casing
but it does the trick and the clear lid does allow you to see with ease what shade is housed inside.
In the cream blush range there is four shades but sadly my local Superdrug only stocks two
shades Dolly and Bittersweet.
Dolly - You would expect this to be the bright pink shade in the collective but it is in fact
a warm bright coral shade that will look wonderful on tanned/olive skin colourings.
However when worn lightly it will also be very pretty on light skin tones, I do worry
that this could be a little too stark for deeper tones but if you have deep skin and purchase
this please let me know how you get on.
This is well pigmented and layers up as nicely not to mention it sheers out pretty well.
Bittersweet - I'm not really sure why I picked this shade up (clearly high on shopping fumes)
as it is not a shade I ever really wear, Bittersweet is a light yet bright clean blue based pink.
In my opinion this is a shade for those with a fair skin tone, I found it to be rather bright
and odd looking on my skin tone.
This is the sheerer shade out of the two.
"These cream blushers are very versatile and multi-purpose. They can be directly applied to bare skin, layered over foundation or set with the matching matte blushers in the £1 MUA range. You can use blush perfection to highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity."
Like most cream blushes these have a slightly slippery almost oily texture,
once on the skin after a few moments they do loose the shiny/oily appearance and settle to a light dewy
finish however I do find these to work best as a base to layer another powder product on top.
Worn alone on my oily skin they do slip a little and wear around 5 hours but when set the wear closer
to 7 hours, in my opinion these would be better suited to someone with normal or dry skin.
MUA Cream Blushes £2/3.2g and are available now from selected Superdrug stores but
I do find their online store to be the best bet for picking up anything new from the line - link
