What I didn't like was the flimsy and unnecessarily bulky packagings not to mention the confusing product line-up.
So I was quite glad to see that Revlon has cleaned up their blush line recently.
Now Revlon simply offers three different kinds of blush in new packagings.
I picked up Revlon Cream Blush "Charmed", which is a new color introduced for this Spring 2014.
Revlon Cream Blush Charmed (Enchantement 150)
I am not into cream blush as I find the application for the type is somewhat tricky and powder blush performs better on my combination skin.
However, there is something so charming about the cream blush finish, and it didn't feel right that I didn't have any cream blush in my stash (if you know what I mean..).
The thing is I did not want to spend too much on something I would only use once in a while.
The new color Charmed looked quite fresh and the simple packaging appealed to me as well as the Revlon price.
Revlon did a very nice job on their blush packaging this time.
It is simple yet sturdy, looking even high-end.
Minus this big a$$ sticker anyway...
Oh wait, the sticker peels off easily.
Charmed is a blushed rose with raspberry undertone.
I personally think it is more of a winter color for those naturally flushed cheeks.
Revlon Cream Blush Charmed has lovely texture.
The color glides on and easily blends in to satiny matte finish.
Overall, I really like this cream blush.
It is a breeze to apply (no accidental clown face) and the achieved result is so natural.
The color is on the sheer side but the intensity can be easily controlled.
I also enjoy this almost matte silky finish as I find some cream blush unbearably sticky (Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, for example).
Still its finish that mimics inner glow clearly differs from powder blush, and this particular shade makes you look like you just had a lovely walk on a mild winter day.
I don't know how it will hold up when it gets warmer, but I feel that it wears comfortably and stays quite well on me for now.
Here is an overall look.
I did try it on my lips but I didn't quite like it.
Although there is no unpleasant scent or flavor to it and no one says we could die from wearing it on lips, I find it is too drying.
Too bad cause it appears a pretty MLBB shade with softest matte finish.
Thanks for looking.
