I recently received an email from Glossier offering me a ‘referral’ credit if any of my friends placed an order using a link I could share on my social media accounts. This made me realize it’s been WAY TOO LONG since I’ve posted in the ‘Things I love’ section of the blog. (And boy, do I have some goodies to share!)
This summer, I decided I wanted a coral-toned blush and that I’d give a cream option a try, since they seem to be pretty popular right now. I’d seen a few in various magazines, including Glossier’s, and tried a couple at Sephora but left empty-handed as their selection was rather slim and I didn’t love any of them. I was on a hunt for the best cream blush, but I didn’t want to break the bank, and that’s what most of the options in my magazine would have done.
Cloud Paint was only $18 per tube, and they offered a deal if you got two. I stuck with just the one in coral, called ‘Beam,’ and am so happy I gave it a try. I was really hesitant about trying–essentially–a liquid, but I’m so glad I did! It’s super easy to apply and a little goes a long way. I just dab it lightly and blend up toward my temples. Best cream blush, by far!
In short, I’m a total convert! This is the best cream blush, for sure. I may never go back to powder blush again. (Except Orgasm by Nars–it really IS the most universally flattering shade ever.) I really like Beam, and may consider getting another shade–likely the more nude color, called Dusk–if I find I want something darker for Fall. Beam is definitely coral, but has enough pink that it’s not too orange.
Let me know what you think!
