You can use blush perfection to highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity. The colour effects range from a light pink to warm shade, depending on method of application.

My experience with MUA Perfection Cream Blush in Bittersweet

Packaging: The cream blushes come in rectangular pans with a clear flip lid and with the shade and ingredient list on the rear. I like the compact packaging but the writing on the front looks kinda cheap with the lettering flaking off easily.

Color & Texture: The color is a blue based pink. No shimmer or anything…but texture-wise I found it a tad bit sticky and waxy.

  • Pigmentation: This is not too pigmented and can be has to be swiped multiple times to get it to how up well.
  • Staying Power: Stays on my cheeks for about 2.5 to 3hrs max.

I’m not impressed with this at all.. After wearing this, my skin tends to look greasy as opposed to dewy and has this sticky feel to it. Usually cream blushes set and give a nice glossy sheen if not a cream to powder formula. But this blush just sit son my skin making it look like I touched them with oily hands.

The staying power too is a downer..I was hoping for better but alas! Have you used this shade from MUA? Did you have the same experience?

This is how it looks on me..

  2. okay if this is the effect it has on dry skin , I shudder to think what it would do to oily skin. Guess it`s not for me then. Maybelline mousse was great among drugstore , maybe I`ll try their dream range.
