I liked the look of the Takano collection from Shu Uemura, especially this Miracle Cherry Blush Tint. Unfortunately it wasn’t released in the UK so I had to scour eBay for it.
This took FOREVER to arrive. A month. It was ordered before Christmas and seemed to be sucked into a postal vortex.
I am so into cream based products I really am – obviously it can’t be greasy or creasy though….
The packaging of this is like a lip gloss.
I like it, it’s cute and it’s also extremely handy to use and carry round, more so than a pot cream blush which requires dipping your fingers into it, or a liquid blush that can go everywhere. Also it doesn’t need brushes for application!
Here is the stuff! I was surprised – it’s a gel, very siliconey feeling (which I don’t like) and almost like a lip balm. I wanted something less transparent, something with a creamier look:
It’s also very red – I thought – well I hoped it would err more on the pink/purple side so that it would be more interesting, instead it’s a bog standard reddish tint.
Like I said earlier I don’t like this silicone feeling on the skin and it can make me break out too. It works fine with this product although with the texture I wouldn’t like it on top of my foundation (makes it bunch up) or under it (wouldn’t show up). Maybe when I have better skin without a base product, eh?!
All in all, more of a style than substance product. At least it looks cute?!
