I purchased two items from the new(ish) Flower by Drew Barrymore line (available available exclusively at Walmart, online and in some stores). Earlier today, I reviewed the Color Play Creme Eyeshadow in Time Willow Tell, which I did not like – but you win some and you lose some, and this Win Some Rouge Some Creme Blush is a definite hit! (Okay that was terrible of me.)
Again, I’m not a fan of Flower’s packaging; the white plastic looks cheap and tacky to me, and I really wish they had printed the shade names on the actual packaging rather than on just the peel-off labels.
Most – or perhaps all – of the other cream/creme blushes I own are true creams, but this Flower blush is a cream-to-powder formula. The texture is sort of silky and powdery, but also creamy, if that makes any sense – and it definitely dries down to a powder finish. It is incredibly pigmented (the heavier swatch below is just one swipe!) but also extremely blendable, so it’s easy to apply anything from the sheerest layer on up.
I chose the shade Elegant Azalea, which is a bright coral-pink with a matte finish; no shimmer or sparkle at all (my swatch photo came out oddly and it sort of looks like there is shimmer; there definitely is not any).
Overall, I love this blush. It’s a great color and a great texture. I love that it’s so blendable and so easy to apply a sheer layer, yet also so easy to build up more intense color. I would absolutely recommend this product, and I’m considering picking up more shades!
