Ok, so maybe that’s not true. I think blush sticks are pretty brilliant if you need to swipe and go. There’s nothing easier than applying your blush from a stick, blending out, and just heading out. It’s really easy, mistake-proof application and if you’re as heavy handed as I am when it comes to blush it’s a great way to get natural, sheerer color on your cheeks without going overboard. But my problem is cream blush sticks tend to fade so quickly on me. They have like zero staying power.
But I’m always game to try a new one.
Here’s my thoughts, review, and swatches on Revlon Insta-Blush!
This little blush comes housed in a 0.31 oz swivel up barrel. It’s portable, it’s easy to apply directly from the tube, and it’s pretty much mistake-proof but none of that has convinced me to like it.
I have drier skin, God, I sound like a broken record. But even if you have oily or combo skin this is going to drag across your skin during application. I hated the texture. It’s not creamy at all and instead of being a cream-to-powder formula it feels like it’s a powder formula from the get go and just drags across my cheeks in a very odd way which results in difficulty blending. Did I mention it not only drags and blends poorly but it is so sheer. You really have to build this up to see any color pay off. It’s funny because it looks amazing once I apply it. Smooth, even color that looks natural and healthy on my face. But I literally had to apply like 15 strokes of color and continue blending to see the color on my cheeks. The wear is horrible as well. After applying 15 layers of this stuff it wore for like 90 minutes at best before fading away.
And let’s not mention it’s $13 bucks for a single stick.
Sorry Revlon, this was bad!
I’d skip it.
