Revlon Photoready Cream Blush

Revlon Nude Photoready Cream Blush is one of two new, permanent shades of Photoready Cream Blush that launched with the Revlon Floating in Love Spring 2016 Collection.

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 will get it in stock hopefully soon!

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.

    Very pretty blush, indeed! Muse, can you say how these compare to the BareMinerals Pop of Passion Blush Balms? I like the formula of those… if these are pretty similar, it might be worth a pickup!

    • Isabella Muse

      Sorry for the delayed reply Lori! Oh I forgot about the blush balms! Those are a little thinner, this formula is a bit thicker and tackier. The wear on Blush Balms is shorter though as well! hope this helps!?

    It would look too orange on me, but I have/love Smitten! I got it for under $2 from ulta on clearance.

    I loved this color and the fact it is a creme blush. I took it home and sadly this did not last on my oily skin . It doesn’t claim to be long lasting, but I was hoping it would be. Didn’t last thru a 9 hour work day. I did find a coral colored one at Big Lots from a past season for $3 and could not resist buying it. Maybe if I set with a a powder? Time to test! 🙂

    Looks nice on you Muse………I have a question though can I use it as a cream eye shadow???

    • Isabella Muse

      I haven’t tried it as a cream shadow. The texture doesn’t seem like it would make a good cream shadow, likely sticky and balmy.
