Smith and Cult Common Peach Flash Flush Cream Blush ($24.00 for zero.09 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-peach with heat undertones and a matte end. It had semi-opaque pigmentation utilized with fingertips (as advisable by the model), nevertheless it utilized erratically in patches with the product clumping up and flaking off my face after I tried to use it and mix it on my pores and skin. This occurred whether or not utilized to my arm, cheek, or over base merchandise (it was truly even worse over base merchandise, because it resulted in an even bigger, patchier mess that needed to be redone totally).
The feel felt heavy, thicker, and clay-like–drier and velvety with some motion, like I might press on it and see an imprint left behind–nevertheless it turned to an nearly drier, gummy texture when utilized to my pores and skin that simply made it an utter nightmare to work with. I ended up making use of with a stippling brush and simply dabbing it on, then doing the lightest sweeping movement to “mix.” It wore effectively for six hours on me earlier than fading visibly.

The components is meant to be a “light-weight, cream-to-powder blush” that’s “pore-smoothing” with a “barely-there really feel.” The feel has a thicker, extra clay-like really feel to it, the place there’s creaminess to it, however there was additionally a drier, extra velvety/powdery really feel current as effectively. It was a difficult components to work with, because it was dry and liable to crumbling/flaking off my pores and skin after I tried to make use of it with my fingertips (which is what the model says to make use of with the product). I had the very best luck working with a stippling brush, however the drier texture made it harder to select up product with a brush. I didn’t like how they utilized on my pores and skin; they had been uneven and typically caught on any dryness or flakiness.
They appeared semi-opaque to opaque in protection initially, however I struggled to get that to translate on my cheeks because the product did not construct up effectively with a brush. If I utilized with fingertips, although, the applying was uneven, product appeared to sink into my pores, and appeared nightmarish. They choose up and transfer basis so much, and when utilized on high of powder, the product goes on erratically and tends to clump up. The one advantage of this components was it lasted six to seven hours on common for me.
