[Review] Make Up For Ever HD Second Skin Cream Blush

Monday, 12 May 2014

All of you know that Make Up For Ever is one my favorite brands. Today, I'm gonna share with you a review on their latest product - MUFE HD Second Skin Cream Blush. These Cream Blushes were launched about a month plus back. I've been using these blushes but didn't have the time to review them cause I was busy with school. Been using them for close to 2 months and am definitely loving them. You won't want to miss this review as it's really good! ;)

These blushes have a texture-free second-skin finish which brings flattering freshness and at the same time controlled shine to the apples of the cheeks, producing a stunningly natural finish. MUFE HD Second Skin Cream Blush is available in a wide range of 16 shades!

The HD Cream Blush is extremely easy to blend and offers modular coverage. Feel that the glow on your cheeks is starting to fade? This on-the-go compact comes with a large mirror to give the skin a flush of colour any time of day!

Swatches:
From left to right:
#220 PINK SAND
#225 PEACHY PINK
#315 PEACH BEIGE
#410 CORAL
#420 INDIAN ROSEWOOD

My Review:
My favorite shades are definitely #220 and #225! I'm actually not a person who wears blush often as I don't like how some blushes look really unnatural. But... I really fell in love with these blushes ever since I started using them. They go onto the skin really smoothly. It's so smooth it totally looks like a second skin as you won't be able to tell that something was actually applied! (See the blended swatch above)

MUFE is known for having really pigmented and awesome HD products. These HD blushes definitely meet the expectations too! (See swatches above - those swatch were made with a single swipe) I know how some might be worried that if it's so pigmented, won't it look too strong on the cheeks right? Thing is, these blushes just blend out so well and looks natural though they are highly pigmented. Being highly pigmented just means that you don't need to use a lot product.

What I like to do is to:
1. Lightly rub the cream blush to transfer pigments onto my finger, (you can use a brush too)
2. Dap 5 dots of it on my cheeks, 3 above and 2 below, then
3. Blend it out!

Even if you rub the cream blush with a lot of strength (which I don't see why you will) and a lot are transferred to your finger, it still will not appear overly strong on your cheeks. All you have to do is to just dap 5 dots on your cheeks, clean off the excess on your finger, and proceed to blend out them out on your cheeks. So there's no way it will look too strong and unnatural on your cheeks. You will still achieve the natural look. Just don't dap too much on your cheeks and it will be good :) Also, they are completely buildable. So if you find it too light, just dap on another layer.

Looks:
Here are photos of me with #225 and #220 on my cheeks. I have oily skin but these blushes lasted rather well too. Wore it out on several occasions and didn't have to touch up :)

I received the new HD Pressed Powder too. It's the same formulation as their HD Microfinish Powder, just that this comes in compact form so it's a lot more convenient if you want to want to bring it out for touch ups! Will be reviewing it on a separate post.
