Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher1

Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher is one of new favorite cream blushes of the moment and that’s saying something because I’m NOT a cream blush fan. I dunno what it is but cream blush fade super quickly on me so I tend to stay away from them.

But how could I resist the Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher? It has a cute little blending brush on one end and the blush on the other and yeah, I’m game to admit that the brush kinda made me want to purchase the blush stick. Shrug, irrational purchasing reason at its best!

Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher is a newly launched blush stick in Korea that should be arriving in the US soon I’m sure but for now you can get it from my trusty and favorite seller on Ebay, F2Plus1.

Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher is actually shaped a lot like the recent Pur Minerals Chateau Stain which launched this Summer as both are a dual ended blush stick that has a brush (or in Pur’s case a sponge) on one end for blending and the cream blush on the other. I love the brush and I’ll make plenty of use of it well after the blush is gone. It’s a short bristled brush with dense but soft bristles. I actually started using it to blend concealer under my eyes and to apply my tinted moisturizer. Is that bad? Haha! It’s just a really convenient little brush to have around!

I purchased two shades and I’d highly advice again grabbing the Skin Coral which is a light creamy orange that comes across very chalky on skin. No like! This isn’t coral at all but the traditional orange shade many Korean brands launch in their blushes (if you use Korean makeup you’ll know exactly what I mean). I never understood this light orange shade because it really seems a shade that’s unflattering on so many skin types. I also got Rose Pink and thankfully this is a lovely rosy pink that’s very wearable ๐Ÿ™‚

Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher (Skin Coral)

The blush formula is creamy, easy to blend, and has a flawless, smooth look on skin. I had no issues with it clinging to my drier skin and it had a very seamless look with a satin finish. The blush is a little bit of a hybrid because although cream they actually blend out to more of a powder formula that also looks like a powder on skin. They wear considerably long which is abnormal for me because as I mentioned above creams simply don’t last on me. On a warmer day I can get about six hours before seeing fading!

If you’re a lover of cream blush I don’t see a reason you simply won’t love these. They have a lovely formula and give cheeks a very nice pop of color. I’d avoid the coral though as that shade just wasn’t all that great in my humblest.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I have the Milky Pink and the Skin Coral and love them both! I’m super pale and the Skin Coral is a perfect everyday colour for me. I would recommend it for other porcelain skinned women for sure! The brushes are really great and super soft.

    • Isabella Muse

      You’re lucky! I look drown out with it! ๐Ÿ˜€ but still love the formula!

  • Becky Z.

    Really loving the Rose Pink shade! and looks really convenient to use which is perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ I totally need to get this hehe.
    Gah, I’m so happy I found your blog because I discovered soooo many products I’ve never heard of before and I love trying new products! ty <3

    • Isabella Muse

      awww that makes me feel so good becky glad to hear it ๐Ÿ˜€

    These look great! I think that skin coral looks a lot better on you than you think :). That brush looks like it’s the perfect shape, size, and density for Chanel’s cream blushes which are probably my favorite cream blush ever; I use them all the time. So, TECHNICALLY, I can justify purchasing one (or 5) of these since I’d use the brush for other items, right? Because that’s what I’m telling myself :-P!

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks mister ๐Ÿ˜€ Haha keep convincing yourself, stay strong! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Maggie

    These look awesome, but I have to ask (if you don’t mind) – what lip color are you wearing in the last picture? It’s fabulous!

  • Mascara mom

    I placed an order for the contouring shade in tehse sticks ten days ago the pecan brown one. Fingers crossed, it should arrive any day now!
    Most people around me don’t understand my obsession with K-beauty, and I tell them that it is addictive…and the prices are so reasonable for the products and pacaking etc. right?
    btw, the coral looks lovely on you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Isabella Muse

      too true. Plus the formulas are fab ๐Ÿ™‚ aw thanks I appreciate that! Hope you love them when they arrive!

  • Katherine T.

    I think both look good on you, and glad you can re-use the brush
