Some New Cream Cheek Products

Winter is here, which means dry skin is the new daily battle many of us are facing. When the weather turns cold, I find myself reaching for more and more liquid and cream cheek products to give me color and hydration in one little package. Here are a few items I have been adding to my daily routine over the past few weeks!

Flower Beauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Pinched $9.99

When I saw these new liquid blushes from Flower Beauty at Ulta, I had to try them out. I picked up the color Pinched because I cannot get enough of peachy nude blushes, especially in a formula like this. While the initial drops are extremely pigmented, this blends out a lot sheerer than I expected. I like how buildable this product is, I can continue adding color until I get the look I want, and it never picks up the foundation or concealer underneath. I usually put a drop or two on the back of hand and apply it to my cheeks with a damp beauty blender. This is extremely long lasting, and it doesn’t fade patchy or dry.

CANMAKE Cream Cheek in Love Peach $11.00

I picked up this tiny cream blush from Amazon after reading about it on Into The Gloss. I have been loving Korean skincare for a long time now, but I have just recently been getting into Korean beauty as well. The blush is a lot pinker than I usually go for, but it actually gives me a very fresh, youthful looking flush. This is a thicker formula than I am used to working with, but it blends easily once I warm it up a bit on the back of my hand. I like applying this with a beauty blender because it thins out the product without losing any of the pigmentation.

Honest Beauty Creme Cheek Blush in Rose Pink $9.25

This is my favorite of these products, mostly because the color is so unique to me! It has a lot more orange in it than I usually go for, but something about the rosiness makes it both wearable but eye catching at the same time. I like to apply this with a synthetic fiber brush because I really want the color and pigmentation to come through. This lasts all day on my cheeks, and when it does start to fade, it does so naturally and evenly. I will definitely be picking up the rest of the colors in this line!

Peripera Ah! Much Real My Cushion Highlight and Contour $17.99

My local CVS has begun carrying a lot more Korean beauty, and I picked up these cushion products from Peripera to see how the line performed. When I first swatched them, I was kind of underwhelmed, but on the face they are both beautiful. The highlight is extremely subtle, making it perfect for adding just a touch of glow to bare skin. The contour’s undertones are perfectly balanced, and it blends out beautifully under the cheekbones. The contour lasts longer than the highlight, so I like to sometimes add a powder highlight on top.

Let me know your favorite cream cheek products!

Glowingly yours,

Jess
