Although by and large I feel you can find high-end equivalent products, I have never quite found a cream blush I love for less. My grail cream blushes are the Stila Convertible Color blushes, which cost $18 but manage to wear like iron on my normal-to-oily skin. The texture of most drugstore blushes, I feel, are just too slippery to even show up on my skin. Could Jordana have a solution to my conundrum?
Jordana has six new Color Tint Blush sticks, blendable creamy cheek colors that twist up and don’t require the use of a brush.
The main ingredients include Hydrogenated Coconut Oil and Kaolin, also known as clay, which helps with oil absorption concerns.
Size-wise these easily fit into the palm of your hands. So cute!
The pigmentation on these blush sticks is impressive, and I find they blend easily on top of your foundation without mucking things up. You can use them alone but for long-lasting wear layer them with a complimentary powder brush. When worn alone I find the blush fades though the day, but on the bright side it’s not a hassle to carry these around and re-apply.
My favorite of the six is the red Apple Cheeks – was this created with my apple cheek tutorial in mind? No one can ever go wrong with a bright blush – they’re easy to tone down and lend the most natural flush, I’ve found.
Thinking back on other budget cream blushes, Jordana’s remind me of e.l.f.’s Shimmer Sticks, but with a little more pigmentation, less shimmer, and more color variety.
Overall these are pretty cream blushes that give your skin a good glow, but don’t expect them to last all day. For $2.99, however, they are a great deal and the perfect portable size for blush touch ups.
You can find Jordana products online.
