The Max Factor creme puff blushes have proven quite popular amongst many of my fellow Irish bloggers. Personally, I never really look at the Max Factor stand, I don't know why but I always think of their products as boring and over priced and their pan stick gives me horrific flashbacks to my early make up days - orange face, white neck anybody? Not cute. But that recently changed with the release of the creme puff blushes, with their uncanny similarity to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blushes and the Milani baked blushes, both of which I've been dying to try.
Many have said the creme puff blushes are a great dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blushes, and considering the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blushes are 30€+ and the Max Factor creme puff blush is 11.49€ I needed no convincing to go out and buy.
Firstly, I like the packaging. It's unlike Max Factors typical straight up black packaging. It's lightweight, compact and the splash of gold adds an element of luxury to an otherwise low scale drugstore product.
I went for the shade 'Seductive Pink' which is a lovely natural pink shade swirled together with a more subtle orangey/brown which compliments my pale skin beautifully. The combination of the pink with the shimmery undertones gives a nice highlight to my cheekbone as well as giving it a lovely natural flush of color.
Baked blushes differ from regular blushes as they give more pigment and I definitely think this is true when comparing this creme puff blush to my other 'normal' blushes. The lightest tip of your brush against the blush gives a real natural effect which is completely buildable depending on your personal taste and whether you're wearing this as part of a day time or night time look. It blends quite easily which is great because I'm not great at applying blush and some times I need to blend blend blend.
Overall, I really like this Max Factor creme puff blush and it's been my go to blush for the last couple of weeks. It's natural looking, heavily pigmented and the marble effect makes it look way pricier than it actually is.
If you're looking for a nice blush that adds a little highlight as well as a pop of colour, then I definitely recommend you try out one of the Max Factor creme puff blushes.
I just wish you luck when it comes to picking out a shade as they're all really pretty.

I bought one of these but I'm still on the fence if I like it or not. I used my beauty blender one day to apply it and I did like it that particular day lol x

I always seem to skip past the Max Factor stand too. I'll have to make a visit to them to grab myself a couple shades to try.
