Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy Glow 'Euphoria'

This was a real itty bitty haul. I was totally sold on this product by Wayne Goss' review. Before this, my only experience with cream blushes had been the ones from NYX.

Sadly, I really haven't used it much; hence why it's in the Project 15 Pan

Since then though, I've been putting it to work.

For application I like to use small duo fibre brushes like the e.l.f Small Stipple Brush or the M.A.C 130.

The formula settles down to a kindda powder finish; I say kindda because the glow definitely remains even after you powder over it. 'Euphoria' can be worn alone as a soft rosy flush of colour on the skin or as a base for a similar or complementary powder shade.

Don't forget that cream products have a shorter shelf life than powder ones. So please don't leave ignore them.

What blushes have you been loving lately?

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
