Cream blushes are amongst my favourite beauty products along with glossy lipsticks and full coverage concealers, and Rosie for Autograph’s Cream Blush in English Rose Flush and Romantic Flush will be two beautiful new additions to any collection.
Apologies for the lack of non-virgin products in the photos, I couldn’t resist swatching these as soon as I saw them. From their rose gold packaging to their colours, everything was just calling me to swatch them!
Described to be ‘a silky soft weightless cream blush’ that ‘blends and builds easily to an undetectable powder finish’, it surprisingly dries to a semi-matte, almost satiny finish that looks nothing short of natural.
Pigmentation is excellent and the cream blended away easily. A little really goes a long way. I’d say the best way to apply this would be to dot it on and blend away. There’s not an obvious scent and in terms of texture, they are slightly creamier than Canmake Cream Cheek cream blushes, but more powdery than NARS Cream Blushes. Both shades lasted a good six hours on me (and this is through wind and rain!).
Romantic Flush is a bright reddish-coral pink with a hint. My friend actually described it as a warm version of electric pink while I typed this up in the kitchen over dinner! Majolica Majorca RD 414 is basically the same shade, but with gold shimmer. Illamasqua Tweak is cooler, darker. NYX Red is also cooler and darker, it’s redder as well. NYX Bourgeois Pig is lighter, warmer and more yellow.
English Rose Flush is a peach nude, which shows up warmer and peachier and pinker on skin than in pan. Becca Turkish Rose is more beige and neutral and Becca Blossom is a smidgen less warm and less pink.
Out of the entire Rosie for Autograph line, the cream blushes and lipsticks stood out the most, and if you’re looking for a easy-to-use product with superb pigmentation and wear, I would check these out!
