Screenface Shadow Magnet Primer & Cremewear Blush Review

I really like visiting the Screenface shop whenever I’m in London – it’s like a little treasure trove although I do feel like a pretendy make up artist! A faker.

Screenface have their own range of cosmetics, which I admit I wouldn’t have picked up in store out of choice. I have a cream blusher and a eyeshadow primer to test:


First off, the packaging is plain – it’s black and certainly passable but it’s just not special or fancy. It is a make up artists store though so I guess this is not where you’d go for your gold-bling-crystal-topped cosmetics.

The blusher is called Crush and is a pretty rosy pink. The eyeshadow primer is called ‘shadow magnet’ and comes in light and natural.

The shadow primer, is a little light for me – I prefer something with more of a translucent finish or something closer to my skintone so it doesn’t look too ‘white’.

The blusher looks like quite a standard pink to me – nothing special in the pan.

Both of these products have a medium hard texture – they do spread quite well but they aren’t creamy.


Ok – for a blusher that doesn’t look very special, I think it’s a gorgeous product to use and the result is just LOVELY. No frostiness to it, just the right hue for me and is effortless to use leaving a natural glow:


I REALLY liked this cremewear blush – even though I still think it doesn’t look like anything in the pan, I can’t deny that the natural glow finish was effortless. I will definitely check out more of these in person because it was so easy to use.

The Screenface Shadow Magnet I have in light – I’d prefer it in Natural. This has a slightly – not gritty – but firm texture – like you have to give it a good few swipes to get some product off.

Then it reminds me of Too Faced Shadow Insurance but in solid form. It’s actually a decent primer that doesn’t change the colour of your eyeshadow too much and stopped my shadow from creasing.


It’s still not my favourite – I prefer a cream texture, but it does work. It evens out the tone of your eyelids a little bit only.

  1. They have lovely shades, very wearable and easy to use.

  2. The cream blush looks great on you, really suits your skintone! I’m loving cream blushes recently, I think they just look more natural & glowy.

  3. oh, that blusher looks lovely on you! Hrm, ease of use makes it sound like a winner. I like fool-proof cosmetics for everyday use.

    I always feel like a faker when I go into the stage cosmetics store near me! But it looks so interesting, I like browsing there.
