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.
