Makeup Academy (MUA) Blush Perfection Cream Blusher Bitter Sweet-Review, Photos, Swatch

It's a weather friendly cream blush that can be worn everyday. Or is it? Cream blushers can be a real challenge to work with, specially in the not so friendly summers of our country.

The Makeup Academy aka MUA cream blushers have been raved about a lot on the internet for quite some time now. I didn't think I'd like it much but still placed an order. I don't have problems with cream blush, as I've already tried the Maybelline dream mousse blush and it is undoubtedly amazing. The MUA Bitter Sweet seemed like a close dupe to one of the Maybelline shades except that it does not have shimmer in it.

The one in Bitter Sweet is a candy pink, which pretty much suits every skin tone. It's quite pigmented and a little bit of product produces good color. I apply it with my fingers. The formulation is light and that's what I like about it. It doesn't feel like heavy cream and does not melt off the cheeks. It's great for everyday wear and a subtle pink glow. It didn't cause any allergic reaction (like patches or skin darkening) so that's a plus, as I have oily skin that reacts very quickly. It has a subtle fragrance which goes away on application. The packaging is OK, but one thing that annoys me is that they appear so big on screens and are the size of a biscuit in real. Oh well, I still like it.

The MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blusher comes in 4 shades and each container consists of 3.2 grams of the product.

Rating: 4/5
