Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush

another nice product from Max Factor! these are one of the first cream-blushes in the permanent range of german drugstores.
they cost about 5€, but the packaging doesn't note the amount of content.
there are 5 different shades,
  • Soft Copper, 
  • Soft Murano,
  • Soft Cardinal,
  • Soft Candy,
  • Soft Pink.
i have two of them, Soft Pink and Soft Cardinal.
they come in rather small pots, but are very pigmented so you don't need much.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush size comparison to a MAC Blush Container

the texture is very creamy and quite greasy and reminds me of the Illamasqua Cream Blushers or MAC Cream Blushes. the finish remains dewy. with oily skin, i experienced a little slippering after midday, so using a little bit of this as a colour base but still a powder blusher on top is what i suggest to my oily fellows. i use it with a small skunk brush.

Soft Pink is a medium neutral bubblegum pink without shimmer
Soft Pink heavily swatched - blended out

Soft Cardinal is a hot pink that tends red, it's warmer than Soft Pink. also no shimmers.

for only a fiver, i can totally recommend these blushes, especially for people with dry skin.  if you have oily skin, maybe you'll be happier with the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges or the TopShop Cream Blushes. but these still are a great opportunity to approach creamy blushes, if you haven't but still don't want to spend a fortune.
