If you’ve been searching for colorful, dewy cream blushes for the Spring/Summer, consider Sonia Kashuk’s new A Kiss on the Cheek palette. When I laid eyes on that bright orange shade I knew I had to have it. I purchased mine off of Target.com but it’s also available in Target stores.
What they say:
The gel-like blends will awaken your complexion with a dewy, luminous finish and add sticky-free shine to your lips; giving you a fast, easy approach to summer beauty. Infused with BerryFlux Vita to increase Hyaluronic acid content and moisturize skin, these creamy yet sheer shades add a natural flush and help to preserve skin’s elasticity. This must-have palette includes four long-lasting pink, coral and berry shades to keep your face and lips looking and feeling vibrant all season long. $14.99
The blushes come in a slim and smooth, matte black plastic compact with a sizable mirror.
The texture of these cream blushes is a lot stiffer in the pan than I expected but they apply easily with a stippling brush or fingers. With fingers, I’ve found that it’s easier to grab some color if I swirl my finger on the product’s surface to warm up the cream and make it more spreadable.
All of the shades have great pigmentation and a dewy finish. You can blend the blushes out for a sheer wash of color or layer them to achieve the color you see in the pan.
Although the company suggests using the palette on the lips, too, I wouldn’t recommend it; I don’t think the creams are moisturizing enough as lip products.
All four shades in the palette are shimmer-free and fragrance-free.
