Ahh, at last. Make Up For Ever (MUFE) recently released a new HD cream blush in a pump-top tube. Unfortunately, the product came out online long before it appeared in Sephoras across America — but reality has finally caught up with the internet.
HD Microfinish blush comes in 14 shades ($25 each). The blush is extremely pigmented, and for some shades on some skintones, I wondered if one pump might be too much for both cheeks.
MUFE recommends applying the blush with a skunk brush (aka duo-fiber, or highlighting brush), but everyone I’ve spoken to seems to prefer applying it with their fingers. (The good news is it won’t stain your fingertips if you choose this method.)
Innuendo is plum with a few tiny plum sparkles (I’m pretty sure they’ll be invisible on your cheek). Caught in the Act and Truth or Dare are both blue-raspberries, but Caught in the Act is more pink/red; Truth or Dare is brighter and more blue. Walk of Shame is pale, cool pink. Nip Slip is a warmer pink. Quickie is pinked coral-peach. One Too Many is browned peach with those tiny, invisible sparkles. PDA is slightly browned peach-pink. In the Spotlight is warmed, berry brown with teeny sparkles. Skinny Dip is orange brown with teeny sparkles. Mistaken Identity is red-brown. First Kiss is bright orange with tiny gold sparkles. Smooth Talker is pale, pale, cool white-pink. Star Struck is peach. Or pale, gentle fluorescent orange.
