After hearing fantastic reviews since this product was released, as soon as some shades of the @patricktabeauty Major Beauty Headlines – Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush ($34 for .37 ounces – https://rstyle.me/+Ly613fRDTzJP6dQXIvlkBQ) were restocked at @sephora, I snagged the shade I thought would look the best on me and that I didn’t already have something similar to in my collection!

Unlike most products that advise you to apply your cream products before your powder products, this one breaks that rule and instructs you to do the opposite – powder first and then cream! Since old habits are hard to break, the first time using this, I did it the way I’ve always done it and experienced beautiful results that were just mattified. Applying powder and then cream, you are left with a glowier result and, since that is my preference, I’ll be doing it that way from now on! As for the blendability, pigmentation, shades, and longevity? All fantastic! Normally, I would say the price would be the only stumbling block, but the amount of product you get with this is pretty impressive, so it’s not quite the steep investment it may initially seem to be. Plus, you get the option of wearing them separately as well. With how much I like this, I wouldn’t be surprised if I picked up another at the next @sephora sale!
