Name: Miracle Touch Creamy Blush
Brand: Max Factor
From Max Factor’s website:
This blend-easy blusher adds a radiant, dewy flush to all skin-types. Unlike powder blushers it also stays looking freshly applied throughout the day.
What I liked:
– beautiful shades that give a nice and healthy flush
– easy to blend
– glowy finish
– not sticky
– easy to carry around
– longlasting for a cream blush
What I didn’t like:
– small pot
– the price
Every time I went to a Max Factor counter, their Miracle Touch Creamy Blush would catch my eye, but because of its size, which looks more like that of a tester than that of a full size product, I never got round to purchasing it. Not that I have ever managed to finish a full size blush before and besides, the small pot is easy to carry around everywhere.
Then, for my birthday, my boyfriend bought me this blush. He didn’t know I had been lemming it for ages (no point in telling him as he always forget these things) and I don’t think he knew it was a blush either. He simply said he bought it because he liked the color lol.
I have to admit that the color is really nice but when I first saw it I was a bit scared. Because I have very pale skin I tend to go for softer and safer shades so if I had bought this myself, I would have probably chosen one of the other 3 pink shades available. But in the end, his choice was right.
Soft Candy is a bright and rich coral red in the pot. The color is very pigmented so less is more with this blush. Because of that, the small pot will last for months. I only dab the tiniest amount on my cheeks (but you can also build up the color if you prefer) and it gives them a nice and healthy red flush with a radiant glow despite the fact that it doesn’t contain any shimmer nor glitter whatsoever.
The gel-like texture is light and creamy, making it very easy to blend. Unlike most cream blushes, this doesn’t feel sticky when applied on the cheeks, which is always a plus for me. I’m also pleased with its staying power. Although it doesn’t last all day, it only starts to fade after about 7 hours of wear, longer if you set it with powder, which is a lot for a cream blush.
Overall, I like the blush. The pot is very small and for that some people may feel it’s not worth the price, unless on sale. However, the blush is very pigmented so a little goes a long way and gives cheeks a radiant, healthy flush. In addition, it doesn’t feel sticky and the staying power is not bad for a cream product.
