I think Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed ($12.99) is the best cream blush I've tried so far. 

Released as part of Revlon's Summer 2012 Collection, Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed has a silky, blendable texture that makes application a cinch, no matter your makeup skill level. 

Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed stands out because of its uncommonly lightweight texture. It has a cream-to-powder formula that sets to a matte finish, and it blends with your skin so well that I couldn't detect any product when I placed my index finger directly on my cheek immediately after application.

I'm a sucker for hot pink blush, so I fell in love with the shade of Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed immediately. Although it looks quite bold in the pot, Flushed applies sheer so you can layer to get the intensity you want. I used about two layers to get this youthful and radiant look.

Though it's primarily pink, I definitely see hints of fuchsia in Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed. I swatched it alongside Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak ($24) for a comparison:

Though they're both hot pink blushes, there's no dupe here! The purple tones of Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed are easier to detect next to Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Tweak, while for its part Tweak shows that it is a more of a reddish, strawberry pink.

I'm so excited about this blush, you guys. I love the soft matte finish and I am so happy with the flattering hot pink shade. There is no doubt that the amazing texture and beautiful, sheer color are going to make Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed a mainstay in my makeup bag.

    1. I really really like this blush and hope you do too if you end up getting it! The other two colors look pretty as well. I looked around for sales because it's a little pricey, but the best I found was that it is buy one get one 50% off at Walgreen's. Hope you had a good Fourth and Happy Saturday!
