MaxFactor | Creme Puff Blush in Lovely Pink [Dupes]
These newly released MaxFactor Creme Puff Blushes have some serious beauty hype surrounding them at the minute for a possible affordable alternate for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders. And, with the same veins of shimmery colour running through the pan they certainly have the potential.
Although, just after you scratch the surface of this Lovely Pink, after those first few uses those beautiful iridescent veins all but disappear leaving a sheer peach finish with some extreme sparkle and many tiny bits of glitter. The positives are, it makes a gorgeous blush/highlight colour combo and due to it's sheerness can be used to set creme blush without taking too much away from the original colour. But because of this, it's not something I would reach for everyday - this coming from a lover of the likes of Sleek's Rose Gold - and is left firmly on that romantique, date-night shelf.
The good news is, if you're still lusting over something similar that packs a little more pigment try the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Blushes (All I Think About Is You, Loved Me The Best) that are incredibly pigmented and boast a certain opalescent sheen as opposed to the all out shimmer of the MaxFactor Creme Puff Blushes - and they pack in just a little more product for just a third of the price tag.
