I am a firm believer that summer is the one season when makeup habits should steer toward light, sheer, effortless products. Powder products typically look terrible in the sunshine, and with the temperatures soaring, powder products will really weigh down your skin and clog your pores, making you feel like you’re wearing a mask. I have very oily skin, so I almost always shy away from cream blush, but in the summertime it is absolutely perfect to dot on some cheek stain, blend, and go. Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef is a beautiful salmon-colored cheek product that will impart a super-natural, lightweight glow to your face. Inside, I will show you how I use this product, step-by-step, as well as how it looks on my face, so
I picked this product up because it was part of a limited-edition “Summer Escapism” collection by Revlon. The coral color really grabbed my attention because it’s so flattering on any skin tone. I can wear this whether I have a dark tan (faux, of course), or not so much color. You can use any cream blush in your collection for the perfect summer flush.
Coral Reef leaves behind a completely natural looking flush. The awesome part about cream blush is that you can barely tell you are even wearing it. With powder products, as soon as the light hits it, you can see the product sitting on your skin. With cream blush you are left with a glowing pigmentation of color that looks like it’s part of your natural skin.
Cream blush almost has a “stain” quality to it, where it looks like you are just blushing from embarrassment. With temperatures already hitting 100 degrees and beyond here in the south, I can’t imagine putting heavy, cakey, powder products on my face. With my oily skin, they’d slide right off, and they end up feeling really heavy and gross.
