MUA Cream Blushes - Reviewed!

I'm becoming a bit of a lover for cream blushes recently but i've found there isn't many good ones on the highstreet. I love the Topshop ones but I was definitely excited when MUA released some a couple of months ago. I now have two shades so I thought it was time for me to do a review. 
First off the packaging isn't amazing, it's a plastic casing which can be a bit difficult to open sometimes. I do like that you are getting your money's worth when it comes to product because there is no wasted packaging.
The two shades I have are Dolly and Yummy. MUA claim that these will leave a soft dewy finish to the cheeks which is perfect for my some what dehydrated skin in the Winter. 
The texture of this is a little thick and can feel a little greasy, however saying this they definitely give a dewy finish. The shade Dolly which is a light peachy pink isn't as pigmented as I would like, if you tend to have a heavy hand this would be perfect for you because it does take a good few swipes of a brush to get a good colour payoff, but when you do it is a lovely natural shade on the cheeks. Yummy is definitely more pigmented and is a classic dusky pink which leaves a just been out in the cold flush to the cheeks. 
Top - Yummy, Bottom Dolly.
All in all I do like these cream blushes, they don't last amazingly well on the skin, I would say a maximum of 4-5 hours. They do however last longer with a powder blush over the top. I would definitely recommend these two shades, and if you have a heavy hand and haven't been able to get on with cream blushes in the past I would definitely gives these a go.

MUA Cream Blushes retail for £2.00.

Have you tried these? Are you a fan of cream blushes? 



  1. I nearly bought one of these blushes last week, but decided against it. Cream blushes always look so vibrant, and it's really hard to decide whether I'll like them on!

  4. I have to say, with MUA's cream products both blushers and concealers etc, I've found them to be really oily - not good for my skin :(
