Max Factor Creme Puff Blush review

Beautiful, baked blush colours that blend well and provide cheeks with a perfect pop of colour, you’re going to struggle to pick just one of the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes because each of the six shades is wearable and flattering.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush review Creme Puff Blush is perfect for creating both a subtle flush of colour and a more striking contoured finish thanks to its easy-to-build formula.

The multi-tonal pigments work with your skin tone and the range of six shades have been designed to offer something for every skin tone, from fair to dark.

These blushes are the perfect dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes which are designed in the same way, infused with colour and a hint of highlight to give skin a natural flush. But the big difference here is, of course, the price, the Max Factor offering is just £8.99 whilst the Hourglass design is £32 – it’s a big price difference when there’s not much variation in the actual product and you can buy three shades of the Max Factor blushes for the price of one Hourglass one and still have some change left over.

So what are the shades available in the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush?

Lavish Mauve (20): Pink with strong mauve veining

Lovely Pink (05): Peachy pink with golden sheen

Alluring Rose (25): Dark berry with peachy pink undertones

Gorgeous Berries (30): Pale pink with berry veining

Seductive Pink (15): Pink with rosy pink

Nude Mauve (10): Pale baby pink with nude tones

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush review

Unlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush exhibits depth and dimension thanks to multi-tonal pigments.

What makes Creme Puff Blush a versatile product is it can be used for contouring, highlighting, and adding colour to your cheeks, and can be applied wet and dry too. If used dry, coverage is sheer to medium. If used wet, coverage is medium to heavy. The blushes have a silky, thin, gliding texture and melt into a soft, natural shimmer finish.


Six shades to choose from, long-lasting, blendable colour, can be applied wet or dry

Multi-tonal pigment has in-built highlighter, so if you want a matte cheek colour this is not the product for you.

Bottom Line

These blushes are the perfect addition to any makeup collection; the finely milled and marbled finish is not only a beauty to look at, but also works incredibly well on the skin too. The Creme Puff blush is really easy to work with, a controllable formula allows you to build colour as desired and the ultra blendable product means there are no visible blush lines once you apply it. It gives you a soft focus, naturally pretty colour payoff that mimics an inner glow.
