I am bad at cheeks. There. I said it. Maybe it's because my face is fuller than I would like, or maybe it's because I never get the placement quite right. Or maybe it's because I talk on a cell phone a lot, which rubs on my cheek. Either way, by noon, my blush is always gone, so it doesn't really matter. Primers, powders and potions don't keep my blush on.
I recently picked up Mally's Long Wear Illuminating Blush System and Brush in part of a Mally Beauty TSV (which I LOVE!). My favorite piece of the kit has to be the blush. Here is how the "System" works.
It's available in two colors, Glow Lighter and Glow Deeper. I picked the Glow Lighter. It comes with a cream blush, a powder blush and a double ended brush.
The cream side is a gorgeous pinky-peach color that dries down instantly. Blend it on to the apples of your cheeks with the flat side of the brush.
Next, using the fluffier side of the brush, apply the powder side to your apples. I also like to blend back towards my ear slightly as well.
The two textures create a lit from within radiance that defines cheek bones and looks amazing. And it lasts all day long, which basically never happens for me.
If you use a face perfecter, like Mally's Poreless Face Defender*, you may want to skip putting it over your blush, as I think it makes the color look very muted. Either way, I love it!
I bought this. Mally Beauty doesn't test on animals. *I've come around to liking the sponge this product comes with. I still think sponges aren't all that sanitary, but it does give a beautiful finish.
