The award for worst product in the the Too Faced Peaches & Cream Collection goes to Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush. This cream-to-powder matte blush is a horror show for drier skin types (or any skin type in my opinion) with a difficult to blend formula that looked beautiful in the pot but applied horribly.

Let’s take a look at my review and swatches below.

Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush ($30) was one of the products I was most excited about from the Peaches & Cream Collection. It comes in six shade selections and by some luck I only hauled one shade. I can’t express how relieved I was that I didn’t end up purchasing more shades. I was crushingly disappointed with this formula and to be saddled with more than one was an task I didn’t want to take on.

Each blush is housed in an adorable peach shaped compact that holds 0.44 oz of blush. That’s a fairly generously amount of blush but I was a little shocked at the $30 price tag which toes that line at higher-end pricing versus the brand’s typically mid-range one. The compact itself is adorable and quite Korean beauty-ish in style. If I didn’t know better one would think Etude House created this blush. Inside you’ll find a smallish mirror and the well of blush which has a sweet peach scent that I found very pleasant. The scent is fairly strong but doesn’t linger once the blush is applied.

I purchased the shade Ginger Peach which is drop dead gorgeous. When I opened the palette I was instantly in love. The shade is a brighten golden orange and I was convinced it would have as gorgeous a glow-y sheen on my cheeks as the blush did in the pot.

The texture is smooth and firm but has a very dry texture that applied patchy on my skin and proved difficult to blend. I imagine if you have oily skin you might see a better glide but on my dry skin with moisturizer and primer I still experience a rather difficult time applying and felt like I was tugging a lot to get the color even and smooth. I did use my fingers during the initial application but moved on to a brush and still experienced the same draggy, dry blending. Although a cream blush I still felt like I was applying powder as the transition from cream-to-powder is quick. When you pick the color up it instantly turns into a powder upon contact with a brush or your skin. I think this might be part of the reason I experienced such a dry application as it gives you know time to work before it sets. I kept reading reviews about the product have a glow-y almost dewy finish but on my it looked very dry. Color did last on me for a six hour period before showing signs of wear and fading at the six hour mark.

All in all, Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush was a terrible fail for me. I just disliked this texture immensely and felt like it was difficult to apply. I also really didn’t like the way it looked on my skin. It seemed garish and un-blended.

    Totally agree, it did not blend out evenly. I did not like the texture once applied to the skin. Glad I only got one shade as well, I returned it immediately! That and the loose powder. I normally don’t mind smells, but that powder was overwhelming. And it wasn’t as finely milled as others so it also went back.

      It’s almost as if it sets immediately which makes it impossible to blend out correctly. Weird formula! I liked the powder! That one I kept 😀 but this, this was a horror show!

    Looked nice on website. Glad I did not buy it.

    PS. ABH new eye palette was released today on their website. I am waiting for reviews. The ingredients have talc and not mica as the first ingredient in most shades like Subculture palette.

    I purchased Spiced Peach. It was a beautiful fall color. Sadly, I returned it because it did not blend well and it did not stay in my normal skin l.

    I bought the bronzer in the same formulation and I really like it! My skin is combo, but no real dry spots. I used the It Highlight Brush that looks like a stipple brush (? Don’t know the lingo!) and I thought it blended really well and lasted all day long. The brush really made a difference- it applies really Sheer and can easily be built up. That’s too bad others aren’t liking the blush, which is basically the same thing.
