Good evening everyone! I’m using some extra time that I had today to finish a few reviews that I’ve had drafted up for you guys.
This first one is a quick look at the:
Peripera Cushion Blusher, #2 Happy Coral:
“Ah! Much Real My Cushion Blusher” – so funny!! Reminds me of that dog meme.
It’s in a tube, with a screw-off cap. Very cute packaging!!! :3
Here are the ingredients and rating over at CosDNA!
Below you can see the sponge, after you unscrew the cap – it’s spring-loaded, so you push the top part down and liquid is pumped into the sponge in three different spots (it helps to pump out more if you squeeze the tube a little):
It’s actually quite sheer – when I swatched it in-store, it was a VERY strong color, but I think it’s because people who “tested” it pumped too much product into the sponge and it was getting everywhere. Too concentrated! If you use it normally, you can layer it very well for a stronger color, or just as easily apply it sheer. It’s a lovely peach color! It looks very natural. And I can definitely layer if I want to, I tried on my hand! But since this is peachy, you probably don’t want to lay it on too many times, or it will start looking orange. Also, this thing seems to have a ton of product in it! And this coral color is perfect for the coming summer season. Loving it!
Since the in-store tester was SUCH a mess to use, I was hesitant about getting it, thinking it would be a mess to use at home as well. Fortunately, I gave it a go – it’s absolutely amazing!! I have a ton of powder blushes that I like to use, but my go-to before this product was a stick, cream blush from Maybelline. It was more practical than powder, but the application was fussier because you had to dab on a bit of strong color and then blend it out really well.
Here are some graphics from Peripera, with instructions about how to use this product:
The only concern here would be hygiene – but it’s about the same as the stick blush, to be honest. I would rather have a sponge like this and wash it every once in a while, rather than have a hygienic pump and have to spend more time putting on my makeup in the morning. At least you can wash the sponge… with my stick blush, the best I could do was wipe the end off with a tissue. 😛 I need something quick, convenient and easy to apply – this fits my needs really well, and it looks great to boot!
Have you guys tried any cushion blushers? What do you think? Any recommendations? 😀
