essence Ready For Boarding lip & cheek creme

Hey everyone!

I hope you are all doing well. I am surely, I finished my junior year today and and am now officially on my six weeks of summer break! My certificate was a very good one, so I treated myself to some bits and pieces in my favorite stores after school (you can see a photo on my instagram).

I picked up this cream blusher from essence's Ready for Boarding LE, a limited edition full of travel- or respectively airplane-friendly products. This blush is actually my first splunge into the wide ozean of cream blushes and so far I would say I might really get into this texture!

The color I got is 02 Beauty on Tour, a bright coral pink which is really pretty for summer!

It was not only me that was sweating today...
The blush is really nicely pigmented, but blends out quite sheer which makes it a perfect everyday cheek color that you don't have to worry about.

As the name already suggests, this creme is a 2-in-1 product.
For cheeks, I like to stipple a tiny amount on to my cheeks and then blend it out with a clean finger. Don't pack on too much at first, you can still add more. I also love the combo of this blush with a peachy powder blush on top. Healthy glow, be mine!
For lips, I suggest slapping on a lipbalm before smoothing the creme on to your lips as it tends to emphasize dry patches when used on your bare pout. Makes a gorgeous subtle hint of coral!

Lightly blended
Overall, I really love this blush and I find it does a great job regarding the little price I paid for it. I will definitely take this on vacation with me since it is such a handy product and I think I will get great use out of it this summer.

essence cosmetics can be found at most german drugstores and at Ulta. The lip & cheek creme retails for €2.45 and will be available in June/July.

What's your favorite cream blush?
