Estee Luder Pure Colour Cheek Rush

Blusher is my desert island must have and for the summer creams are my favourite but Estee Lauder have just launched Cheek Rush.
 This blush is a gel-based formula that although the colour looks vibrant on initial application it blends down to a transparent tint.

The packaging is an 8g plastic pump style tube. The colour of the outer packaging reflects the colour inside and unless you read the fine print on the gold lid you wouldn't really know it was Estee Lauder.
 The pump does dispense a nice amount of product with half a pump but I worry you would never know when you are about to run out until it stops pumping.
 It's hard to tell if there is a false bottom or if the product fills the tube but either way only a tiny amount of product is needed so you would get a lot of use out of this.

The gel inside is a smooth gel that is best applied with your fingertips.

 It blends in easily with no tacky feeling and dries instantly. The colour dries matte and gives a stain like finish.You need to work quite quickly and blend the edges well to make sure you don't get a line.
This picture shows how quickly the colour stains so work fast with your blending!
 Colour goes on with a translucent tint and is buildable however you will never be able to achieve a vibrant colour payoff with these, just a tint. The finish on the skin resembles a natural skin flush.
If you wear a lot of powder I would apply this under it as I found when used over powder it didn't seem to melt into the skin as easily.

This water like gel would work well under heat so would be a good choice to wear in hot climates, when on holiday or getting married in the sun.
 This would be fine on all skin types.

Comes in 4 shades and we had a play with X-Pose Rose and Hot Fuse.
Hot Fuse 
 I appplied Hot Fuse more to the apples of my cheeks to give a flushed tint. Colour is not as red as it looks in the tube and there is the most finest of a gold fleck which gives off a more radiant finish although as you can see it's pretty much invisible and does not look shimmery.

X-Pose Rose
Colours are quite similar once blended in but this has a slightly more vibrant rose tint. The gold fleck I noticed in Hot Fuse doesn't seem to be present in this colour.

Each colour is £24 each and available now from http://www.esteelauder.co.uk

  3. I did a quick swatch of this at a counter and thought it was a very light tint but I do like stronger blusher!

  4. I am always stumped about the stain blushes, do you put them under or over a foundation, does it just give you a base for say a powder blush after the foundation is applied. Please Sam or Nic give us an opinion of stain blushes.
