MUA Cream Blush review!

Hello guys; hope you are all well! Today I am reviewing a relativity new product; the MUA Cream blush. I decided I wanted to pick up 3 shades as they are only £2. I picked up ones I believed looked like shades I could use throughout the changing weather so that my blush would always look natural! Admittedly this is my very first time using a cream blush, so I was looking forward to working with blush in a different way than what I'm used to!

So I picked up three of the MUA cream blushe out of the five available. Before I get in to the review of the product itself lets discuss the packaging. The packaging has a clear front with the usual MUA logo on the front and the packaging is made from plastic. To open the product you just flip up the clear front! The pan size is pretty big in my opinion for blush (I don't know about anyone else but it always takes me forever to finish blush). For £2 you get 3.2g of product. Check out the MUA website here for more information. There are currently five shades available; Lush, Scrummy, Blossom, Yummy and Dolly. I must admit I am now after the two I don't have!

MUA Cream Blush in Lush

The first shade I chose was Lush which is a bright pink type color; this is the color I can see working very well in the summer when the cheeks are naturally brighter. I have worn this a few times and although the swatch is very bright it does blend very subtly in to a bright pink on the cheek.

MUA Cream blush in Scrummy

The next color I decided to pick up was Scrummy; this is the color I could see working well for the Autumn and Spring as although its bright it is a more subtle brightness that adds a lovely tint to the cheeks. This cream blush is a much more subtle and rosy color. I would recommend this color for those that want a standard blush color that they can use all year round or those that usually do stronger eye or lip looks as this is a blush that won't subtract from them!


The last color I chose to pick up was Blossom; which I chose to pick up because its subtly would work perfectly during the Winter which is the time of year I don't want my blush to be over the top and more on the subtle side. This one to me is the most subtle and could even be used as a bronzer or a contour; definitely a multi-purpose color. 

So on to the blushes overall. The pigmentation of all three of the blushes I have tried was incredibly strong and solid. The above swatches, for example, are produced from swiping my finger just once on the cream blush and then swatching. MUA for me always impress me with their pigmentation despite the fact they are so cheap! The lasting power of these blushes? Pretty Impressive! They kept a strong color for a good 4/5 hours! As for any scent; there actually isn't a scent at all!


Positives:
  • Cheap
  • Available in store in the UK and online internationally
  • Sturdy packaging
  • Great pigmentation
  • Around 4/5 lasting power
Negatives:
  • Color selection is on the narrow side with only 5 shades available but who knows this might get expanded in the future!

So those were my thoughts on the MUA Cream Blush. Have you tried these yet? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!

  2. They're absolutely beautiful aren't they?

    I also think they're possibly an option for people who don't always get along with cream blushes as they've a drier, less oil formula than a lot of other brands, yet that doesn't detract from them at all. Love them! xx

    1. They are amazing! I will need to try some more cream blushes to see how they compare but for me this was starting on a high with my relationship with cream blushes!
