The Max Factor stand in Boots is normally one I walk straight past - I think I may have bought a Max Factor mascara a fair few years back, but that's it. That was until I spotted the Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink on One Little Vice's blog recently and fell in love. It didn't take a long for a trip to Boots to happen, for my purse to part with £6.99 and for this cream blusher to be mine. It's definitely one you'd miss unless you were really hunting for it - these tiny pots were at the bottom of the stand, with two of the four shades hiding behind the others.
The Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush comes in quite plain, plastic packaging, but this is a blusher where the shade does all the talking. Soft Pink is just the most perfect colour for a natural flush to the cheeks; there's no glitter or shimmer, so it is completely matte. It gives my pale skin a subtle but beautiful glow, so it's a good product for your daytime makeup bag. I use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply and blend the Miracle Touch Creamy Blush on the apples of my cheeks up towards my hairline. Although the formula is creamy, it is also ever so slightly tacky, but the Stippling Brush makes easy work of it. The colour begins to fade after 6-7 hours, but will last a few hours longer before completely disappearing, which is really impressive considering it isn't a cream to powder formula.
It's safe to say the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink is a new favourite that I can see myself reaching for a lot over the Spring and Summer months... My beloved Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender has certainly been pushed out of the way for now!
Are you fan of cream blushers? Have you tried any of the shades from the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush range?
