Clarins Multi Blush in 02 Candy


I've always been a little scared if trying cream blushes in the past due to my oily-combination skin. I didn't want it to just melt off or leave patches on my face. This cream blusher is absolutely gorgeous however, and I'm definitely a cream blush convert- well maybe a Clarins cream blush convert anyway!

The blusher contains Clarins's famous Light-Optimising Complex, which captures the light and makes the complexion luminous. It also contains rose, mimosa, jojoba and sunflower floral waxes, all of which combine to protect the skin against dehydration. Finally, this amazing little blusher contains a Vitamin E derivative which protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals. So, as well as knowing that this blusher is being kind to my skin, the effects of these ingredients mean that the blusher stays put and does not cling to the drier areas of my cheek- a problem that I've had with blushers in the past. It is also long lasting; I apply it at 8am and by 6pm it's still in tact, looking just as nice!

The shade I've got is 02 Candy, but it also comes in three other shades, which can be found here. Candy is a really natural, warm shade that blends into my face so effortlessly. I have quite pale skin and it adds a a nice healthy touch of colour that looks like it's my normal complexion- but better! It can be built up easily the more colour you want but as a base this is absolutely stunning. I use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush (which comes in the Core Collection) to apply it and the two work really well together. It definitely needs a firm brush (like a more rounded foundation brush) to apply it with as the colour does not transfer well onto a soft brush.

I would highly recommend this cream blush to anyone that is looking for a natural-looking, low-maintenance but very effective blusher.

What do you think?
