Review: Makeup Academy MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blusher

MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blusher in Blossom

Product Info from MUA Cosmetics UK:

PRICE: Php 540.00
NET WEIGHT: 3.2 grams
 SHADES: Available in 6 shades.
 
PROS: 
* affordable
* i love products that are unscented
* color is buildable
* i like the minimalist travel friendly packaging and the see-thru lid.
* the texture of the blush is very creamy and easy to blend.

CONS: 
* only available online.
* sadly, the color does not show up on my NC20 skintone. See swatch below.
 
TIPS:
* Moisturize skin prior to applying cream blushes so that you don't have a hard time blending.
* If your skin is only, apply primer first to make your makeup last longer.
* You can either use a foundation brush, stippling brush or your trusty fingers. My preferred method of application is a small foundation brush; just pat the cream blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend with your fingers.
* Set with translucent loose powder or leave it as it is for a fresh, dewy look.

OVERALL: 
For a drugstore brand, I'm impressed with the texture of this cream blush. I didn't have a hard time blending it using my fingers or with a brush. But I'm quite disappointed with the shade, no matter how much I try to layer, it doesn't show up at all!

WILL I REPURCHASE?
I'm not a fan of cream blushes, I have a few MAC Cremeblend blushes that I ended up selling but I kept one to use for my clients.

If you are looking for an affordable cream blush, I recommend you try this one but get a different shade instead =)
