Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow in Liquifuschia


After watching a Lisa Eldridge video the other day, I realised I didn't have a blue based pink cream blush.  So that was my excuse to get Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow in Liquifuschia.

I was quite excited to see Kevyn Aucoin stocked at Space NK here in the UK.  I remember flicking through a copy of Face Forward eons ago (when I wasn't that into makeup) and being amazed at the transformations.  Having a piece of Kevyn Aucoin makeup won't make me a stellar makeup artist but it brings a smile to my face.

First up, the packaging.  All the Creamy Glow blushes are encased in a flip open two-tone case with a decent sized mirror for touch-ups.  The compact is similar to the revamped Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges.

Onto the product itself.  In the container, Liquifuschia is definitely not for the faint hearted.  It is a BRIGHT hot fuschia pink.

But once blended it is a beautiful blue toned rosy pink, sans any kind of shimmer.  The colour is perfect for when I'm feeling a bit grey or need to do my makeup quickly, as it is perfect on its own - just a quick swipe and blend.  I have oily/combination skin but I found Liquifuschia had great staying power - it definitely lasted longer than other cream blushes I have.

Texture-wise it is not overly oily - there is enough slip for blending but once dried it does not feel greasy.  The finish is dewy (but not overly so) rather than matte, which I think is more flattering (matte blushes, to me, have a tendency to look very made up and severe).

At £19 I feel Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow blushes are worth it - it is a decent size and the formula is wonderful.


  1. I LOVE cream blush!!! I don't own any from KA and anything that says "glow" I'm a sucker for! Thanks for the review, it's now on my list!

  2. This has been on my wishlist for a while, ever since I saw it pop up on Nordstrom. The color is gorgeous and I love the finish.

  3. Mercedes - You should definitely check out KA line. Lots of cream blushes, gorgeous colours.
    Larie - Same here. I wanted it for a long time but it wasn't available in UK until now. Colour is incredible!

  4. That is such a fab colour, I have yet to try a cream blush, really tempted to so now though..

  5. This colour is beautiful! I will definitely have to pick this up... I love using cream blushes in the Spring/Summer! xx

  6. Rosie Rouge - you really need to try cream blushes! They give a very natural flushed look.
    Aleeza - Please let me know if you do! ;)
