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.
