The cream blusher stick collection launched as part of the Hourglass Vanish collection, and again, I really rate the Hourglass Vanish Stick Foundation, so I had high hopes for the Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick.
“A creamy blush stick that delivers weightless, buildable color for a skin-perfecting finish. This silky cream-to-powder formula blends seamlessly into skin for a natural pop of color, while blurring the look of pores for a flawless finish. With a unique triangular tip and a blend of emollients and antioxidants, it allows for precise, effortless, and smooth application.”
The Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick is a solid cream blusher stick, inside gold chrome packaging. Just like the foundation, the blush stick has a twist-up mechanism, and is designed to be applied directly onto the cheeks, and then blended out with fingertips or brush/sponge.
The Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick is available in six different shades;
- Adore – Vibrant Berry
- Devoted – Dusty Rose
- Loyal – Rosewood
- Revel – Warm Scarlet
- Sacred – Coral Peach
- Wonder – Soft Peach
All of the shades of the Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick are gorgeous, but this particular shade is Wonder, and it’s a soft peach like Hourglass describes. It’s quite a pale peach, so I can’t imagine it working for skintones that are much deeper than mine, but it’s stunning.
I really love the formula too. It’s not too emollient, and it’s not drying either, so it’s easy to blend, but once it’s blended, it fully sets which isn’t always the case with cream blushes.
I can’t think of another cream blush with a formula that’s similar, but I absolutely love the formula, and the shade, and I have reviews of the other shades to share with you very soon.
