Verdict - 4 / 5
It’s been about 4 months since I bought this cream blusher by Innisfree so I feel like now is a good time for me to give a fair review of it. I got this for £6.49 from Innisfree so it’s a good price point to try out these cream blushers.
These blushers come from the Smart Drawing collection. This is a really unique collection of makeup because all of the foundations, colour correcting and strobing makeup are packaged up in cute, minimalist tubes with a soft brush applicator. I think it's a really cool concept because it makes applying makeup a fun and artistic process.
They have 5 different blusher shades from roses, to corals and passionate reds. I found it hard to choose which to try first, but in the end, I decided to try the Cherry Blossom Pink shade because rosy shades suit my skin tone the most. Trying it on in real life, it’s kind of a dusty rosy shade which I really love. I think it gives a really pretty and natural flush to the cheeks when it’s well-blended on the cheeks. It has decent staying power but it does fade a little bit after a few hours.
This has just a slightly thicker texture compared to some other cream blushers on the market like Glossier Cloud Paint. For me, I like to experiment with blushers so I quite liked this. But the creamy, thick texture means you need to apply it really sparingly. As you can see in my video, you’ve got to apply bit by bit as you can very easily spread too much and then it’s a bit tricky to tone it down. Having said that, I do like that you need to build it up to your desired colour because then you can tailor it to your skin tone.
The packaging is very cool and innovative. I like the brush applicator idea. But sometimes, the brush applicator can get a bit messy as you squeeze the blusher out of the tube. It’s also quite tricky to know how much product will come out of the tube too.
What’s really great about this blusher is that a little product really goes a long way! You don’t need a lot to get the result you want so I think that this is going to last me a long time. :)
Let me know if you’ve tried these too, I’d love to know what you think in the comments.
