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.
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?
