First Impression on the Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes and FOTD ft Laura Mercier Caviar Stick

Hi Everyone!

I spotted the new Max Factor Creme Puff blushes the other day in Boots and just had to try them. I had only seen few pictures of them but no reviews when I bought them. As soon as I came home I found few reviews and some people were saying these were a dupe for the Hourglass ambient light blushes! Well I do have the Hourglass blush palette and now I have three of the Max Factor Creme Puff blushes. 

First off, I like the packaging, it is not to big and it is very sturdy. 

The product itself is amazing, I wouldn't necessarily say it is exact dupe for the hourglass blushes, however this is probably the closest drugstore formula you can get. 
The creme puff blushes are so smooth and feel like silk. The blend effortless into the skin and leave a beautiful glow. First time wearing the nude shade it lasted all day. Sometimes blushes wear off on my cheeks but it lasted a long time.

The shades are amazing. I love love the nude shade called Nude Mauve and I think it is my favorite. Seductive Pink is beautiful and the Gorgeous Berries is kinda like a pinker version of Nars Dolce Vita.

I am wearing the Nude Mauve blush and here are the rest of the products I used for my face. 

For my base I used the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Fluid Touch Foundation, I am very curious about this foundation. (a new drugstore product) I have only used it few times and I really like it. I own the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation and so far the Maybelline is soo similar to it. I really should to a comparison because I honestly can't see much difference. The Maybelline foundation has a medium coverage and leaves a silk/velvet finish on the skin. I did end up blotting my foundation an hour after I applied it because I didn't set it when I applied it first. 

I used my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer under my eyes and around my nose and chin. 
I added a bit of warmth with the Too Faced Milk Chocolate bronzer and did a light contouring with it as well. 

The blush is the Max Factor Creme Puff lush in Nude Mauve, like I wrote about earlier :)

Eyeshadow is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Burnished Bronze and I just apply it straight on my eyelid and then blend it out with my fingers. I used MAC Vanilla Pigment for my inner corner and I have really been obsessed with it recently. I actually used a tiny bit of my Urban Decay Naked Basic 2 palette to blend the crease out and the lightest shade on my brow bone. 

I have been lining my eyes quite heavily recently and I used Makeup Revolution Double Flick eyeliner on my top lash line and then the Too Faced eyeliner on my waterline.
My brow pencil is from Soap and Glory and my current favorite mascara is the YSL Volume Effect Faux Waterproof Mascara.  

Again as always... I forgot to take a picture of my lipstick but it is the Revlon matte balm in Elusive.

Well I am loving this look because it is so easy and Hello three day old hair! It's my new thing to curl it and then it just lasts ages and I love it!

Hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what you think? And if you have tried the new blushes what do you think? Do you maybe fancy trying them? :D
