Max Factor Creme Puff Blush

July 27, 2015

This post is long overdue, when I first bought it I had the intention of reviewing it after a month or so of using it but it’s just been put back, but not because it’s an awful product I’m just useless sometimes!

The Max Factor Creme Puff Blush‘s are very pretty in deed. With 6 shades to choose from, I spent ages trying to decide and finally opted for Seductive Pink, a pretty soft pink that adds enough colour without looking like Barbie. Similar to the Hourglass and Milani blushers, they are multi-tonal and are very finely milled, my favourite type of formula in powder products. I haven’t found an exact dupe in colours yet but I’d say formula wise, these and the Hourglass blushers are pretty similar. The Hourglass blushers aren’t as pigmented which means buildable colour is easy to achieve, these ones are very pigmented and you do need a light hand otherwise you end up going overboard, one sweep of my brush is all I need. They both offer a similar finish, a glowing flush of colour which has a built in highlight for a nice sheen, very pretty. Wear time is pretty standard, a couple of hours and the colour is less noticeable but still visible, like most blushers.PicMonkey CollageI do really like the Max Factor blushers a lot and do want to buy more shades, they are a lot cheaper than the Hourglass but I’d still purchases both as Hourglass seem to have that little something extra. Maybe it’s the fact they are mixed with their beautiful powders, or their swoon worthy packaging, I can’t work it out but nonetheless, Max Factor’s offering are still worth a swatch if you haven’t tried one already.

Have you tried these blushers? What are your thoughts on them?

    I picked up one of these in a different shade and it has hardly any pigmentation! Maybe it was just that shade as your swatch looks gorgeous x

    I’ve wanted to try these since they came out but I have no idea what shade to choose.. Seductive Pink does look lovely though! x

    I picked up one of these months ago but I picked up the gorgeous berries shade and I haven’t really touched it as it’s more of a winter shade

    I currently have 4 of them, but I’ll probably end up buying the other 2 as well since I’m completely in love with them :) Definitely one of my favourite blushes of all time :)

    I have the same shade and it really looks pretty, with or without foundation.

    I’m a huge fan of these although I definitely prefer the Hourglass offering. The pricetag difference though is a major benefit of the Max Factor alternatives!

    I don’t own any Max Factor products and I’ve heard before that their blushes are great, so maybe I should really give them a go!

    I adore these blushes and cannot wait to extend my collection!

    I haven’t tried one of these yet but I really should do. I’ve never really lusted after the Hourglass versions but I think that’s because they’re just so expensive so I knew I wouldn’t be buying them. As these are so much cheaper it has to be done really x
