Is this blush really worth the hype?

Like many, I had been seeing ads and reviews for the new cream blush weeks before the product was released. Personally I love every Fenty Beauty product that I have tried, even though it’s not always my go-to brand for every cosmetic product. Being an incredibly pale person, some of Fenty’s colours are obviously not catered to me, but rather catered to those with deeper tones or even just a mild tan. I personally love the fact that they are focusing on tones that have been ignored in the makeup industry’s past and Fenty makes many products that look AMAZING on everyone. So even though I love the brand, I’m also not someone who buys every single product they put out.
I decided to purchase the Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Rose Latte, Arguably one of their darker looking colours when you go online. I wanted a more neutral toned blush as I was getting tired of always wearing pink and coral tones on my cheeks. Rose Latte is described as a “soft bronzed nude” which was exactly what I was looking for. Upon opening the blush I did get a little nervous as the product in the pan looks incredibly dark, but after I swatched it I felt more reassured. This cream product is incredibly easy to apply and blend in. It starts off subtle and can be build up for a more dramatic look. For myself I leave the blush in a more subtle for a natural look but this blush would be amazing on a full glam look. If you’re nervous about being too heavy handed with your blush this is an awesome blush to try. The product blends effortlessly into the skin preventing you from looking like you’ve got clown cheeks. This is also a great blush if you’re wanting to experiment with colours you’re not experienced with or unsure of how they will look, this product gives you the ability for both subtle and dramatic application with a natural finish.
Cream blushes are always my go-to in the spring and summer months because they tend to cope better with the heat and give the skin a more dewey finish rather than powders; which I tend to use more in the fall and winter months. If you’re in the market for a cream blush and you’re considering the Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush, I say go for it! I am very satisfied in my purchase and based on how much product you need to use to apply to the face, it will likely last you quite a while.
So there you have it, Have you tried this product? Or a different colour? Let me know your experience in the comments and if there are any other products you would recommend, I’m always looking for new products to try.
