The Real Girl


Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush

Danielle Bisbano - Sunday, February 17, 2013

I must confess, my supply of cream blushes was sorely lacking. For those of you who have seen the size of my kit, this may seem a tad hard to believe. Sure I have the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette and technically I can create any little thing I want in the whole wide world of makeup but I just don’t always have the patience, or the time.

There are a gazillion cream blushes out there and there are probably lots of them that are great. Because I get to enjoy some deep discounts as a professional, I tend to order just about everything I purchase. I don’t always have the luxury of trying out products first so I do A LOT of my homework online and this product has gotten some rave reviews. I like to know what real people think about products and reviews are invaluable for that.

The Make Up For Ever line is great. I have tried several of their products and been very happy with them. I ordered two shades of this blush; Mistaken Identity (11) which they describe as a warm brown and PDA (8) which they describe as a light rosewood. The one shown above is PDA which, in person, actually has a touch more brown than the picture shows. I would have taken a picture of both but I already loaned one to my friend. I just can’t resist sharing because I really like this blush and I’ll tell you why.

First of all, you cannot beat the packaging for the whole hygienic factor. For your personal use, a typical cream blush is fine. For me, using a typical cream blush on a client is a pain. I have to scoop out what I need and get the product “flat” so it can be applied evenly. I seem to always scoop out too much so I waste a lot. Having a pump is brilliant! You only need a very small amount. Repeat: VERY small amount and the pump will allow you to dispense exactly the amount you need. That’s huge! Have you noticed how many pumps don’t let you do that? At $26 a pop, it is not cheap BUT with the amount you use, it is going to last you a loooooong time.

Okay, now onto the blush itself. It goes on smoothly and evenly and lasts ALL DAY. I love the two shades I purchased and I cannot wait to get more of them. The finish is just perfect. It’s sheer and fresh without being too shiny, sticky or wet. It goes over foundation perfectly without dragging or drying out too fast. You can easily apply and blend it with your fingertips (I like using my ring finger and pinkie) or you can use a brush. Here is a link to the product page on Sephora if you want to check out the shades and application tips. MUA friends that are eligible for a professional discount can get it at Nigel Beauty Emporium for 40% off with their Pro Card. Happy shopping!
