I love the Glossier Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Colors, but I realised I’d never actually gotten round to writing about the shades I own here on the blog, so that definitely needed rectifying.
Everyone knows all about the Glossier Cloud Paints, as they’ve been around since 2017, but Glossier have had some really great 30% sales in the last twelve months (apart from a disappointing 20% off for Black Friday), so I used the opportunity to pick up some more shades.
“Just sheer enough upon initial application to make it easy to work with and layer without going overboard—simply dab it on cheeks and tap into skin for a natural, flushed-from-within glow.“
The Glossier Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Colors are little white plastic tubes, with screw caps containing 10ml / 0.33 fl.oz of product inside, and they’re $18 / £15 each, with eight different shades to choose from.
Glossier’s Cloud Paints are one of their bestselling products, which inspired their summer launch; the Solar Paints (reviewed right here), and the Cloud Paints have even won awards, they’re that popular.
The Glossier Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color is said to feature a formula of special blurring pigments, designed to give a soft-focus effect, without accentuating texture or pores.
Offering a lightweight gel-cream formula, which has a pillowy, bouncy feel that blends seamlessly and leaves cheeks dewy, not streaky or chalky.
This shade of the Glossier Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color is Dusk, which Glossier describe as being a ‘brownish nude’, but in truth, it’s more of a peachy brown, with a little warmth, and it’s just so pretty, and complements absolutely any makeup look.
Usually, when a brand claims a product has “blurring” pigments and claims of a soft focus finish, I have to eye roll, as they very rarely, if ever, deliver on that claim, but look at the swatches above. Look how blurred and smooth the skin of my hand looks in the “blended” swatch?!
I’ve never found a cream blusher which blurs the skin like that, and it’s such a flattering effect once blended. They look gorgeous applied on bare skin on no-makeup makeup days, or over the top of your makeup.
It blends out so seamlessly, and is nicely buildable, so you can decide how vibrant you want your blush to look. It’s a bold claim, but I’ve found it impossible to make the Glossier Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color to ever look bad, and I kinda want to own every single shade, as I love them so much.
