So as of late I've been rocking out the cream blushes. I don't get it either, because it's summertime and cream stuff just slides off my face. Yea, having combo skin is not a good look sometimes. So anyway, one of the colors I've been using is By Terry Apple Glow. I reviewed Ginger Glaze (#3) and as much as I adore Ginger Glaze, I'm all about the pinks for the moment.
Formula and texture: Yours truly is a bit of a picky chick in terms of how something feels on my hand, or more in between my fingers (yea, that's what she said too). It's like a whipped, almost a mousse like feel. I'm all about how awesome it feels. The finish is satin-matte, but it doesn't look like a blob of ugly flat color on your cheeks, it gives a very subtle fresh flush look. You know that look on your face when you're a little too excited *wink*. It's a nice warm mid tone pink with some red in it? Maybe a better description is a natural strawberry pink. Uhm, it's not a loud color that you'd look like a clown. Trust me. Ok, so you would think that this stuff since it's a cream, that it wouldn't last long on your face. . . which brings me to . . .
Longevity: So I rocked it out in the 90 degree heat, with tinted moisturizer with no foundation primer. I really wanted to see how this stuff measures up in the heat, because if it lasts well in the heat on my skin, then yea...it's a keeper. So I wore it and I was sweating outside. You know that heat where you can't even breathe from the humidity? I felt like I was going to collapse. Anyway, so how long did this stuff last? 7 hours and it was some fading. I didn't think it was too bad at all, given my skintype and heat. Plus had I worn foundation primer, it would have lasted easily another 4 hours, assuming it's still hot outside.
Size and packaging: 3 grams or 0.1 oz. Pretty straight forward packaging: gold, screw top packaging.
Scent: it's definitely scented with By Terrys signature rose and it has a slight baby powder scent mixed in. I feel like the scent isn't as strong the more you open the lid, or maybe I'm just used to the fragrance.
Onto the photosssss !!
