I’ve tried cream blushes before and cream blushes are actually an excellent option for skin that is aging and skin that is dry. The creaminess can give the skin (dare I say it again) that “glow”. But, not all cream blushes are created equal and typically cream blushes don’t work great on oilier skin, they can “slide” off the skin or disappear in no time flat. As I mentioned, not all cream blushes are created equal and this La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush (shade is Rose Glow)is beyond excellent.
Some cream blushes are tacky and difficult to apply, other feel too slick on the face and I’ve actually broken out from them. But this La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush is ah-maze-ing! Yes, La Prairie is a luxury brand with the luxury price to go with it, but it’s also a product that delivers. It’s so lightweight and silky creamy and it applies beautifully. It blends in, it can be layered to give a deep color to the cheeks and even on my somewhat oily skin this winter, it stays put for hours. This is hands-down the best cream blush I’ve ever used. Another excellent point about this blush is that it has skincare properties built in to give the skin care you are already using that extra boost throughout the day.
The above swatch shows it applied quite heavily so you can see the color. But it definitely can go on much more sheer for a more natural look. Because of the luxury price that goes with the line, they also package more beautifully than most. The blush is encased in a silver and gold compact that is a sturdy weight and it comes packaged inside this zip embossed pouch for protection. A cream blush can easily be applied with the fingers by gently buffing it into the cheeks or even with a brush, preferably one similar to a skunk style brush where the ends are more feathery and loose to give it good blendability.
