Drugstore Buy of the Week - Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush, Pop Of Peach

Maybelline's Baby line of products are the epitome of cute.  If you're just starting out with blush, or prefer a sheer pop of color, Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush, Pop Of Peach is perfect.

The blush head is a round, dome shape (similar to EOS lip balm).  The photo above makes the blush look a bit more chubby and big that it really is.  In real life, it can easily fit between fingers easily to apply.

Not only is the color and shape adorable, but the formula is a creamy gel that smooths on easily.  I played around with applying it directly on the apples of my cheeks and using the applicator to smooth it out, and smoothing it out with either my beauty blender or fingers. 

The finish is hydrating and has a nice sheen that will be good for those of you with normal to dry skin ( it may be too much for those with very oily skin!).  The gel felt moist on my skin but not too wet and it dried down to a dewy, slightly sticky finish with a tiny amount of shimmer.

Tip: These Cheek Flushes, will work best over just moisturizer or a very light tinted moisturizer, rather than a full foundation/ BB Cream. They for a light, natural, young playful look, so if you have great skin tone/no real discolorations, this will look the best on you.

Due to this sheer finish, I would not consider this a long wear blush or one to wear on very hot, humid days.

If you have darker skin, like myself, note that this will be for a more natural, dewy pop of sheer color.  For lighter and medium skin tones, you will be able to build this to a more prominent peachy shade.  There's also a medium pink shade,Pinking Of You
so try them both! - RLB
