Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Blossoming Review
I used to only wear mineral powder products, but since discovering cream-based products, I've barely tried anything else. Cream blushes are probably the item I love most - it gives more control and precision in application than a powder, and also has a gorgeous, dewy, fresh finish that you just cannot achieve with a powder blush.
It's no secret that I love Kjaer Weis, and they certainly are one of the most luxurious - and the best - organic make-up brands available. Their range of cream blushes come in a variety of flattering shades. From the very lightest to the more vibrant, deeply pigmented shades, all are very wearable and suit most complexions. The Kjaer Weis Blossoming Cream Blush is described as “...a rosy tone that will give you a healthy, glowing, fresh-faced look.”
On my skin tone, Blossoming is a peach-pink with rosy undertones. It gives me a healthy, natural fresh flush of colour, and it is probably one of my favourite shades. It works with any other colours on my eyes or lips, be it neutral or bold, and works especially well with just a nude, winged eye and pink lip. I also love to press this into the lips (with a touch of lip balm over the top) to effortlessly pull my whole look together. I also love to wear Kjaer Weis Blossoming with the Dazzling Bronzer (perfect for lightly contouring), as the colours play off so well together and it keeps my look fresh and natural.
Kjaer Weis always excels in the packaging department. The heavy mirrored metal compacts are eco-luxe at its' finest, and each compact is refillable, the empty pans recyclable. These are always an absolute treat to use. The design of the compact also makes these easy to use if you've got limited space or are on-the-go, as you don't need to hold/find somewhere to put the lid whilst you apply the product. The back of the lid is also mirrored, so you can use it for touch-ups!
If you don't want to splurge on the compact, or already own a magnetic palette, you can simply purchase the refills and create your own palette. A popular option is the Z-Palette, which comes in a range of colours and sizes, and you can also purchase empty pans if you want to add lipsticks etc to your palette. For me, I prefer the compacts. They fit nicely in my make-up bag, look stunning and feel gorgeous (and simple) to use.
Application, Finish & Wear
The Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Blossoming gives the most beautiful dewy finish to the skin, that just gives a healthy glow as you move. The colour lasts all day and does not fade. If I want that extra glow, I'll add the Radiance Highlighter or rms beauty Living Luminiser.
I simply tap the blush into my skin with my fingertips, and then lightly blend. This gives the most natural look for me, and I can build up the colour as I want and also control placement, without disturbing the product underneath.
Blossoming is a firm favourite, and I'll most definitely be replacing it once I hit the pan! If I only had one blush, this would be it.
