Melt Cosmetics Polished Cream BlushlightMelt Cosmetics Polished Cream Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a darker, pinky-coral with reasonable, heat undertones and delicate pearl all through a pure end. It was richly pigmented the place just a little went a good distance, and with the extra emollient texture, it was simpler to construct up than it was to diffuse and sheer out if one over-applied.
The consistency was creamy, easy, and emollient with good spreadability and blendability, because it didn’t seem like it settled into my pores and skin nor did it elevate up base merchandise once I examined it over basis. With this shade, I discovered a brush gave me extra even, blended outcomes with much less effort (which was how I utilized it for precise put on; within the images, I used fingertips, and I’ve some post-acne marks which might be making it look a bit much less even than it was to my eye in individual–sorry in regards to the state of my pores and skin!). I felt like fingertips labored nicely, however it simply took just a little longer to get the very best end result. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours earlier than exhibiting indicators of fading.

The product is primarily marketed as a cream blush, however the model additionally acknowledged that they are often utilized to lips as nicely with some shades working as cream eyeshadow for a monochromatic look. There was nothing about protection that I might discover, although the model’s swatches–both reside and in promotional images–were opaque.
The system was light-weight, reasonably emollient, and barely gel-like, which helped it unfold higher over naked pores and skin and over base merchandise. Most shades weren’t liable to lifting up base merchandise and labored nicely with each fingertips and brushes for software.
Because the system was extra pigmented with most shades starting from semi-opaque to totally opaque, I discovered brushes have been significantly good at getting a sheerer, extra subtle software, particularly across the edges. If you’d like a sheerer impact, I would suggest utilizing much less product and build up extra as they have been extra pigmented than most cream-based blushes.
They dried right down to a extra transfer-resistant end, so they didn’t stay emollient, which helped them last more on my pores and skin. They may nonetheless be blended out as soon as dry, and if I rubbed with a fingertip, product would switch, however the shade did not elevate away if I needed to brush a stray eyelash or hair from my face (as examples). They nonetheless had a pure sheen on my pores and skin, lower than dewy however positively not matte both!
On common, they lasted eight hours on me with a few shades lasting a contact longer. I discovered the shimmer-less shades to final barely longer compared to the shimmery shades, which have been extra emollient within the pan as nicely.
