So when I saw that a new-ish skincare and makeup line launched a liquid blush called “cloud paint” my attention was piqued.
I love cream blush. And whenever I post about it I receive a lot of comments from women saying either that they don’t know how to use it, when to apply it, or they’ve never tried it at all. I wear cream blush every single day that I’m doing my super low key beauty routine, which you can read about here.
I’ve seen a lot of hype about Glossier products already, and I finally bit the bullet to try some myself. Initially, I was quite pleased at the price points. And the shipping was fast. I purchased Cloud Paint in Dusk and Boy Brow in Blond.
Boy brow left much to be desired. I don’t have a lot of eyebrows to start with, but using this product alone did next to nothing for my eyebrows. I proceeded to fill them in and then use Boy Brow to hold them in place a bit and that worked well. This product may work better if you already have enough eyebrows, and simply want to add a touch more thickness and structure.
I really liked Cloud Paint. I expected it to be a bit more of a mousse form for some reason, but it’s like a serum consistency. It blended in really nicely and the result was a really natural looking flush. I apply liquid or cream blush after I’ve applied both my foundation and powder. You can try a few different ways, but this is how I find I get the most impact. On a casual day, with this kind of makeup routine, I’d skip the foundation and powder altogether and simply apply the blush to the apples of my cheeks.
I took a selfie on the day I was wearing this blush for some unimportant reason and I have to say that whenever I scroll passed it in my phone, I really think the blush is quite flattering and natural looking!
Have you tried anything from Glossier? I’d love to hear about some of your favorites in the comments!
