Review & Swatchfest: Mary Kay Blush in Strawberry Cream

If you read my review of Mary Kay's Mineral Eye Color, you will know that I had a somewhat rocky relationship with their shadows in my childhood. Well, for every recital I pranced on stage with awful blue eyeshadow, I had loud pink spots on my cheeks to match. Needless to say, my relationship with Mary Kay's blush was equally as tumultuous. So, when given the opportunity to try their Mineral Cheek Color I took it as a means of therapy to get over my childhood trauma. I have to say, I'm so glad I did. Not only is this my new favorite blush to wear, but to look at too. It's. That. Pretty.

Speaking of looks, Strawberry Cream is a medium berry pink shade with gold shimmer that just won't stop. Think NARS Orgasm's berry counterpart. The texture is really smooth and not chalky in the least. The swatch below was done with one swipe - no layering. It's not powdery, so it's easy to get a subtle application, but it's also pigmented, and thus very buildable. On me, the wear time is average (lasting a full day of working, commuting, etc.), but I don't typically have a problem with my blush melting away after a few hours. If all of the other blushes in the line are like this, I might have to try them all because they are fab. But I have to say, if you try one, it should be Strawberry Cream.

You can snag this beauty either from your Mary Kay rep, or their website for $10 (.18 oz.). This is a good deal considering the quality and shade rival brands that double this price, without doubling the quantity.
