I may not be the biggest fan of the Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara but I happen to really like the other products I have from them. Here’s one I really enjoyed using much to my surprise. Its the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush which is essentially a cream blush that I picked up from their Isetan Lot 10 counter on a bit of a whim.
The colour I have is #18 Soft Cardinal which is a rosy pink. The blush is actually only around the size of the Max Factor single eyeshadows, which is quite small. Just a little larger than a MAC eyeshadow. Its actually quite an unusual size for a blush. Hop on down for the swatches.
The texture of this cream blush is rather tacky. Its very easy to pick up the colour because of the texture and it also applies quite pigmented. I think this colour will look really nice on those who are slightly more tanned. If you are very fair, it can be easy to make mistakes but if you use a duo fibre or skunk brush, then that makes things a lot easier.
I use my fingers if I want to be quick. I tap on the surface of the blush and then tap and blend the colour on the cheek. Repeat until I achieve the intensity I want. I actually LIKE using this when I’m in a bit of a hurry because it gives me a quick flush without taking too much time and hassle over it. Its also easy to sheer out so mistakes aren’t that prominent.
The swatches show the colour swatched straight from the pan on the left, and sheered out on the right. You can see that once its sheered out, its not scary at all. In fact, it can go on quite sheer so you can build it up. On me, it lasts most of the day provided I’m not out and about in the sun and sweating. If you want longer lasting power, brush a powder blush over it and it’ll last longer. As the texture is a little tacky, it makes a good base for powder blush.
The packaging is a little basic and colours are quite limited but I think its a lovely little blush for its price 🙂
Pros: Pigmented but can be sheered out, Lasts, Easy to apply, Affordable
Affordable, Packaging isn’t the prettiest, Limited colour range
