You likely already own a few shades of Photoready Cream Blush. It’s a product that launched originally with the Revlon Escapism Collection for Summer 2012 and consecutively gets new shade selections here and there in other collections. It’s obviously here to stay considering both this Nude and another shade Smitten are labeled as “new shades” so no worries if you can’t find the Floating in Love Collection just yet at drugstores because sooner or later a majority of the shades in the collection will be available in the permanent Revlon line.
Revlon Nude Photoready Cream Blush is a nude peach with beige undertones that applies as a nude orange on my cheeks. It applies quite sheerly but does build up slightly. It is a shade that can’t be overdone due to that sheerness so if you have a heavier hand like I do this won’t be a problem during application.
This comes in a flat, little pot with a black lid like we’ve seen from MAC Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Pots, E.L.F. Beautifully Bare Blush, Lavshuca Lav Fake Cheek Color and of course, Bobbi Brown Potted Rouge before the packaging change. The pot holds 0.44 oz of blush for $13.99 or I got mine at Harmon’s for $10.
This formula is a little different compared to my other Photoready Blush shades. It’s a little thinner and emollient with a dewy finish versus they semi-matte finish I get from other shades I own. I got about four hours of wear from it before the color started fading away. I was a little surprised that the formula was slightly different but I didn’t mind so much as I have drier cheeks so the lightly hydrating, dewier finish was welcome however, this didn’t shorten the wear for me.
Revlon Nude Photoready Cream Blush isn’t as pigmented or as long wearing as other Photoready Cream Blushes I’ve tried but it is a nice, neutral nude that will go nicely with a brighter lip color come Spring or Summer!
It’s worth a pick up if you are a fan of this formula.
Revlon Nude Photoready Cream Blush is launching now at drugstores and I imagine Ulta.com will get it in stock hopefully soon!
