The MUA cream blushers are something I've been wanting to try for weeks, if not months. Last week I finally found the shade I wanted, after it being constantly out of stock. This particular shade is called Bittersweet and it cost me £2. MUA is always such a bargain!
Bittersweet is only my second foray into cream blushers, my first being the Revlon Photoready blusher in the shade Flushed - featured here. I've worn this MUA blusher a couple of times now and I must say I really like it. I wouldn't go as far as love, but it's more than decent, especially for the price.
The consistency of this blusher is quite slippery and it feels very thin. I apply it with my fingers and I think this is probably the best way as it makes it much easier to control how much product you're using. It's not highly pigmented, but it's also not too sheer. I like that it's easily buildable, blendable and the colour is beautiful. It's quite natural and gives the cheeks a healthy glow.

No weird smell.
Easy to apply.
Only 4 shades.
Packaging is just OK.
Slightly slippy - but doesn't affect application.
A few bad points this time, but I still enjoy the product and would recommend it as it's cheap and works well.
Have you tried this cream blusher before? I really want to try the Elf cream blushers, I think they look amazing, what do you think?
