Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush - Soft Candy

I found out about the MaxFactor creamy blush from Deb's review, so a big Thank You, Deb!  She got a paler/pink blush, but I am darker skinned, and the other colours in this range just would not show up on my skin.  I decided to go with "Soft Candy" - or the Tomato Blush as I call it :D

As the name suggest, this is a cream blush, comes in a small round plastic container (a larg coin size).  Fairly simple packaging - twist open plastic top, use clean fingers or brush to apply.

The colour looks a scary red in the pan, but is much tamed down on the skin with a little blending.  I do feel, though, that this colour would look better on darker-skinned girls; lighter skins would need a more careful (very less) application, at least.  Just my opinion, which of course is very prone to being wrong since I don't even know how to apply a blush properly :D

Swatches:

Could have blended it better but the camera didn't pick up the colour.
If I had to find faults with this:  The packaging is not very sturdy.  I have not broken or damaged it in anyway, but it seems pretty easy to do so.  Max Factor also does not mention any ingredient list anywhere.

Cost:  Rs. 565

  4. Oh and Deb had mentioned that these can be used as lipbalms...I never tried..I don't think I want to waste this on lip balm work..anyway my lips are too pigmented for anything to show up.

  28. I have seen your pic..in that lazy bum smokey eye makeup post..and if you do have marks..they sure are not seen in the pics. And ya, no way I can use any blush without a foundation or some sort of a covering over my face :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. see you cannt see the marks coz of my foundation - seriouisly if there is one thing I would say that you HAVE to get from MAC its the foundation ... it makes me actually believe I have flawless skin (I swear to god I dont) :(

  32. Studio Tech is the best for marks n all... but can be cakey if not applied right - it was reviewd on imbb n what i was using .... Studio Fix fluid is better for daily use, has spf 15 in it :P and the coverage is more of the buildable type :D works just fine on my marks as well :D my marks got so so bad a while ago my aunt thought i had an infection or something :( :( :(

    surpanaka - why you hate me ??? blush is radsooos not mine ... i dont have sexy sexy tomato blush ... :(

  47. i just want to lay my hands on this, i am so loving seeing this blush on your blog, i come to see it every now and then :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hahahaa..where do you stay..if you don't mind my asking you..because someone had said it's discontinued..it is very much available everywhere in Bangalore.

    ReplyDelete
  49. i stay in pune, and at this place, nothing is available, even lakme trio blush bhi nahi........

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ohh..but try asking for this at the MF counter..because this is a very old product and they don't really advertise it naa. Lakme Earth Blush tho was a hard-to-find item just about everywhere..:)

    ReplyDelete
  51. i am back, hey one more question, is your skin oily, and whats ur skin tone, i wanna be doubly sure before i buy this, :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Rentu..my skin is oily-combination - not really oily-shiny kinds though I am acne prone. Skin tone - :D really am not sure but I am pretty much darker skinned..dont know who to compare with but average South Indian skin colour..The blush does give a shine to the face when on applying because it is glossy and I settle it with powder which kind of makes it look normal. Like a very light dusting over it...hope I made some sense :D :D am really not good with makeup :D

    ReplyDelete
  53. hey thanks, me all set for it :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. If you find a tester check it..I couldn't find testers here for this..so just went with Deb's review..:)
