Make Up Monday - Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow #TheMakeUpShow


One of the products the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida were given to try at The Make Up Show was this really cool blush-but-better-than-blush product from Kevyn Aucoin, called The Creamy Glow.

Now, this confession may shock you, but before The Make Up Show, I didn't really know Kevyn Aucoin.

Please, breathe.  I'm a fan now.

Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow.

The color I was given to try is called Pravella, and it's a bright pink.  It's creamy, and I usually apply it with a synthetic blush brush or kabuki brush, although it is also easily applied with the fingers.

The brightness scared me a little, but it can be worn much softer.  This is one swipe of the product from my finger onto my forearm.

Can you see the glow?  It's not shimmery, it's not shiny.. it's a glow. I love it, and I think it makes my skin look amazing.  Here, I've blended the swipe out so you can see the glow a little better.  You can make the blush as light or dark as you like.

I've always had a problem with blush longevity.  I don't know if my skin just sucks it up, or if I'm afraid of putting enough on to stay.. but nothing I've ever tried stays on all day.  I don't really know how long this lasts.  But I've never seen another product do what it does, and that is worth a touch-up, if needed, in my book.

If you'd like more information on this product, this link (not affiliate) will take you to Kevyn Aucoin Beauty.  Their link to online sales takes you to Bergdorf Goodman, where this product sells for $26.

What do you think about a blush that glows?

My #NailArtForNubs post will go live at 9am Eastern today! Two, yes, TWO posts today!

    1. It looks scary bright in the pan, but it's really not. It's a great everyday blush. I find myself reaching for it, even though I have lots of other colors.

  3. Once you blended it it's a pretty shade of pink. I like how subtle it is because it looks natural and not over the top.

    1. I agree. I'm not one for bright dots of color, like a doll's cheek!

    1. Every once in a while, I get lucky! I love this and the Ellis Faas mascara I got to try from The Make Up Show so hard.

  6. I have a problem with making blush last only because I always rest my head in my hand and the oils from my hand rub it away!

    1. Me, too! I wonder if the Hourglass Ambient Light products do something similar, or if it's a totally different effect.
