Max Factor Creme Puff Blush Review!

Max Factor has released some new blushes recently, the Creme Puff Blushes. There are six shades to choose from, catering to every skin tone. I was sent three to try out: Nude Mauve, Alluring Rose and Gorgeous Berries.

The first thing I want to mention is that all three of these are really pigmented. You only need to pick up a little bit of the product to get a beautiful result. They're all really build-able too, and blend super easily (living up the Max Factor's claim!). 

Nude Mauve
Nude Mauve is the lightest of the three shades that I have. It's a little hard to see on my skin tone, but it gives such a beautiful, subtle natural bit of colour to my face and is perfect for days when I'm going for a more natural look. 

Alluring Rose
Alluring Rose, which is my favourite of the three, is really great for a light contour or for warming up your face a little. It also has a bit of shimmer in it, which I only noticed showing up when my friend asked me what I was using to highlight my cheekbones (I'd used a different brush to apply it that day). 

Gorgeous Berries
Gorgeous Berries is the darkest shade of the whole range. It's the most pigmented out of the three I have, and should be used with a really light hand otherwise you'd end up looking ridiculous. When it is applied lightly, it gives a really lovely touch of colour to the cheeks.

Alluring Rose and Nude Mauve look a bit orangey on my hand in the swatch above, but they don't look as orange on my cheeks (thankfully!)

A lot of people have compared these to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blushes, and while I can see that they look similar, I don't own any of the Hourglass blushes so I can't compare them myself. All I can say is that these are amazing, and well worth trying out! They're €11.49 each, and if you're looking to try more than one, I'd suggest waiting until there's a 3 for 2 offer on.
