There are several make up staples which I can never be without; mascara, concealer and a blusher to put a pop of colour back into my cheeks! The Max Factor Creme Puff baked blushers are one of my favourite high street blushers I’ve tried and never fail to deliver on the all-important natural glow that we all try to achieve. The blushers are baked which, in my experience, give a better quality to the product than regular powder pressed ones, and have a gorgeous marbled highlighter effect streaked throughout them. The powder is very finely milled which means that when it is applied to the checks the product melts in to your skin and/or any other make up underneath, leaving the illusion of a pop of colour just where it is needed! When used with a blusher brush the fall out is minimal and just the right amount of productive is picked up to be swept over the cheeks.
The shade ‘Seductive Pink’ ticks all the boxes in terms of delivering that lovely, ethereal natural flush often only found in higher end make up brands and gives just the right amount of colour pay off to make people question whether you are wearing make-up or just back from a brisk walk in the sun! It’s a rosy toned pink which would suit all complexions and can be applied lightly for the most natural of looks or built up gradually to achieve a more dramatic pink hued glow. Due to the marbled highlighting mineral pigments running through the main colour these blushers can also double up cheek highlighters if placed on the high points of the face and stops the product from looking too ‘flat’ on the skin. The packaging also hits the spot, with the product housed in a petite but sturdy compact, perfect for those times when you need to streamline your make up bag due to space.
If you have been eyeing up the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palettes or blushes but can’t quite meet the eye watering price tag, then these Max Factor blushers are a really good dupe at a much more purse friendly price tag. They offer the same non-shimmery glow that the Hourglass blushes are renowned for, leaving a wash of colour on your checks which pulls together perfectly a chic, healthy make up look. They come is a variety of shades to compliment all skin tones, with the shade Nude Mauve being next on my list to try due to the gorgeous bronze hues it offers.
Seductive Pink has become my go to daily blusher and given the amount of compliments I’ve had recently on how healthy my skin is looking, I suspect it will remain a permanent fixture in my make up collection.
