Cream blush is becoming more and more trendy in makeup, and even though I still prefer powder blush, I can not help but like the results from these wonderful products!
Cream blush blends better into the skin and gives a nice glow. If you like colorful cheeks, I definitely think you should invest in cream instead of powder, because cream becomes a little more natural even though it gives a lot of pigment.
Now I have tested Lumene's new cream blush in pin format, Raspberry Miracle Blush Sorbet, which is available in four different shades. And I can really recommend them! :)
The colors are matte but light-reflecting, not at all sticky (also oil-free) and are easy to apply.
Launched now in April, and costs SEK 129.
I like the shade 3 Full and Flowers which is a very pink but still soft color.
I have used it today to show you:
Cream blush is applied after foundation, before powder. I apply directly from the pin with small strokes on the cheeks. Smooth and erase the color with your fingertips. Do not take in too much when you erase the edges, then you can destroy the basic make-up underneath so that it becomes stained.
Fint va? :) It's actually the blush I have on my lips too!
And because I will certainly get the question "How is this compared to IsaDora's similar blush?" so I can try to answer that right away. Both Lumenes and IsaDora's pin rouge give a good result, but the consistency is a bit different anyway.
It is very difficult to explain, but IsaDora is more typical opaque cream while Lumene is a little more transparent which still gives a lot of color. It feels like Lumene's name on the blush "blush sorbet" does not come by chance, if IsaDora's cream rouge is soft ice cream then Lumene sorbet! Probably very difficult for you to understand, but if you try testers in the store, you will surely understand what I mean :)
