Cream blushes perfect for summer from The Body Shop and Maybelline - with swatches!

When warm weather hits, I switch over to a cream blush - between humidity and sweat, I find powder ones end up looking streaky on me but cream ones glow!

The two I have in rotation right now are The Body Shop Lily Cole Lip & Cheek Dome in Crazy for Coral and Maybelline Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin - I have to wonder if the people who named these products got them confused  - to me The Body Shop one looks peach and the Maybelline one looks coral!
Here's The Body Shop Crazy for Coral on the left hand side - it adds a nice flush with a bit of sheen that looks very natural. I especially like the packaging - the dome shape makes it easy to swipe it directly on the face!
While I like it on my cheeks, I'm not crazy about it on my lips, the colour is unflattering on me and while it doesn't feel dry on, it sure does look it!
Bouncy blush does indeed feel bouncy - the texture is really light and it blends and layers easily - there it is on the left side!
It's not advertised as a multiple product and it doesn't make a good lip product, again it looks dry - I like the colour though so I might try it again with a coat of clear gloss on top!

  1. I wanna get my hands on one of those Body Shop blushes! They look so cute. Packaging is such a seller for me!

  2. I really liked the Body Shop lip and cheek dome, I don't like cream blushes but the texture of this blush is so good, unfortunately they ran out of the pink one so I decided to buy it later sometime.
