Lavshuca introduced their Girly Whip Cheek Blush for Fall 2012 in four shades. I’ve actually had two of them for quite a while now but didn’t get a chance to review them.
This is the first time Lavshuca has done a cream blush to my knowledge and I eagerly grabbed a few shades since I liked the packaging. They house these in a long lipgloss like tube with a sponge applicator for application. Although I’m not the biggest fan and supporter of cream blushes I have to admit I liked the idea of swiping on and blending out. Seemed easy and so travel friendly.

Lavshuca Girly Whip Cheek is the oddest name ever. I think things get lost in translation with Japanese cosmetics sometimes and I love sitting back and laughing at some of the odd names.
Unfortunately, I didn’t like these little blushers in the least. If you have oilier, fairer skin you might love them but those with drier and medium, tanned, or darker skin won’t really love ’em.
These have a creamy almost whipped consistency. I like the texture a lot, they just feel interesting! They actually blend very well onto my cheeks but have a very sheer finish with little pigment. The thing I really didn’t love about them was the drier, matte finish…I admit they looked very smooth on my cheeks and didn’t cling to flaky areas in the least but the matte finish wasn’t terribly appealing to my shimmer loving self.
PK-1 and RD-1
The good news is for a more natural look without a lot of fanfare these deliver. On days I need a lighter blush when doing a bolder eye look these provide just the right amount of flush without over doing it. They make my cheeks loo naturally rosy without being overwhelming my eye look or perhaps a bolder lipstick.
Overall, they aren’t my favorite blush formula. I wouldn’t go to any extra trouble to haul them unless you have oily skin and a lighter complexion and favor a sheerer blush. Otherwise, I can’t say I thought them terribly special.
