Review- Three Custom Color Specialists Creme to Powder Blush

This luxurious formulation is appropriate for all skin types and can be applied with the fingers or a sponge. With the color wheel as our guide, we designed this broad range of shades to compliment all skin tones. $22.50

I've always loved a cream to powder blush formula. While some powder formulas can look dry and cakey, and some cream formulas don't have much staying power, cream-to-powder blushes are the best of both worlds. They give you that rich, dewy look of a traditional cream formula, but last much longer. Three Custom Color Specialists have mastered the ultimate cream-to-powder blush. It blends easily and the creamy formula dries into a long wearing powder with a great natural finish. I tried it in Burgundy (not pictured), which was much too dark for my skin tone, but I loved the texture and formula. I would recommend that shade to someone of a darker hue, but with 12 shades to choose from I have no doubt you can find your perfect fit!

Trish says: I like playing with colors. And sometimes I have to mix and blend a bit to get what I really want. So, when I tried this blush in Brown, I was a bit perplexed, yet excited about the challenge. First, I tried wearing it alone to see how it looked naturally on my skin. I'm no stranger to dark blushes, but this brown, as brown as it was, looked like I left an odd-color streak on my cheeks. So, I did only what I knew next - blend it. And I mean, really blend it with another blush to add contour and depth and dimension to my cheeks. I'm happy to report, that brown doesn't look so bad anymore! If you like playing with colors and adding some contour and shape to your cheeks, I feel that these customized blushes can provide so many unique and creative ways to formulate a specialized look. Not only is it fun, but you can discover so many new ways to make ordinary colors pop! Even brown. And I agree, as Malikah mentioned above - the creamy blush does dry softly to create a nice powdery finish and feels ultra smooth to wear! So to all, happy blending and contouring- although you may want to leave brown to the experts, ahem, just to stay on safe color side!

Melissa says:
I have added this to my color palette! I'm a powder type girl and was a bit scared to try this only because I tend to stick to what I know. I tried Plum and absolutely loved it. It was a great color for my skin tone and think it's a nice Fall color. I really liked the way it went on and it stayed for awhile. Since it's a bit creamy, I like how it could play with it to get the right color and amount on my skin. Sometimes I go for that strong plum color and then I just put a touch on! Either way, I really liked this product and added it to my make up bag. Overall, I was really impressed with the products from Three Custom Color Specialists. Their lip gloss was great and I really do like the blush! Now, if I could only learn to blend and contour more like the other ladies, I'd be set!
