When MUFE relaunched their HD blushes in a compact style I was a bit hesitant but I'm glad I tried them out! The new generation of cream blushes has a slightly longer dry time than the previous pump version and the compact makes it much easier to determine what amount you need to apply the perfect flush! #510 is a plum purple and I apply it with my fingers to give a natural flush. I tend to apply before I apply foundation and then use a powder on top, because these blushes are PIGMENTED and dry down fast! Wear time was longer than 6 hours for me.
If you're looking for a true product-free, long lasting, glow from within blush, this is the one for you. I just discovered it and I love love love it! It really has no cons, just a few things that you have to get used to. Such as the amount you use. You need to use a microscopic amount for both cheeks, this blush is super duper pigmented and blends fast and easy. You need the teeniest needle drop on each cheek, and blend it out fast to get an even, glowy look. I like to apply it with my fingers as I find using a brush unnecessarily wastes product. This stuff is expensive, especially when you see how little they give you. But the colour is so extremely concentrated, it's not to be believed. This cream / mousse blush is especially good for the drying winter months. With my already dry skin, this blush gives me the perfect amount of colour and glow, without drying me out of making my skin look chalky or flaky.
The concept of this blush is great: the little product is very pigmented so if used properly it'll last you forever, so the price you're paying for it is more than worth it. However, as this level of pigmentation is not something most of us are used to dealing with, I can see a lot of product wastage during the learning curve. I think I'd rather if they gave a bigger bottle of product that was slightly less pigmented. So the product and money equation would remain the same, but my eyes, hands and heart would feel that it got more bang for the bucks by looking at the bigger sized (albeit, lesser pigmented) product.
I highly recommend this to everyone, especially for the holiday season. For dry skins like me, I can see this being a staple year round.
The texture can be described as ridiculously creamy and moussey, it's thick enough to give precise control during application but feels non-existent on skin.
The MUFE artists recommended applying this blush with a dual fibre stippling brush, I tried that a few times but found that I ended up wasting a lot of the product as it gets absorbed by the brush. Instead, I found that gently dabbing it on with my index finger to be the best method of application. It does, however, tend to dry quickly so blend fast. Once dried, the finish is matte.
The pigmentation is absolutely amazing, build your coverage anywhere from a light natural flush to clown cheeks if that's your thing.
You know what's the best thing about this blush? other than the incredible texture, the amazing pigmentation, the etc. etc. blah blah, is that it actually provides you with some coverage, yes as in the type of coverage that foundation and concealers provide. My skin is far from perfect. I have a lot of scars from previous breakouts and my pores are the pits, but this blush actually makes my skin look better than it actually is by covering up all these imperfections! Must be this whole HD thing, but who cares, I'll take it!
