First Impression Friday – @milanicosmetics Cheek Kiss Cream Blush

April 16, 2021

For the longest time, blush wasn’t even a part of my makeup routine. Then, I started with natural powder blushes. As my love for those grew, I branched out into more bold powder shades. Finally, I discovered my current obsession – cream blushes. Just like my journey with powder blushes, I treaded lightly at first, but quickly expanded my range to basically any shade available from brands that were making cream options! Today, I am testing out the @milanicosmetics Cheek Kiss Cream Blush ($8.99 for .21 ounces – formula!

What it claims:

🔘 Blends seamlessly for a natural, flushed-from-within glow

🔘 Lightweight, buildable and never greasy, this multitasking cheek and lip balm-to-gel cream formula melts onto skin for an always luminous wash of color

🔘 Infused with skin-loving Pomegranate, Watermelon & Rose extracts plus antioxidants Vitamin A, C & E to hydrate and brighten

🔘 Spherical Powders blur imperfections to enhance the appearance of skin

🔘 Available in four ultra-wearable shades that apply easily with just your fingers

🔘 Vegan and cruelty-free

🔘 Made in Korea

My verdict?

I purchased the shade Merlot Moment (described as “wine”) and on one can deny that it’s absolutely stunning! It blended out beautifully and worked well over my cream products and even over a light layer of powder! I prefer to use a brush with my cream blushes, but a sponge worked well, too. The first photo was taken after ten (10) hours of wear and you can still see a ton of pigment. My one and only issue with this is that it started to get a little patchy near the end of my day. However, if you don’t wear your makeup for extended periods of time or don’t mind reapplying, for the price, this is an excellent product!
