So Underrated: Lancôme Color Design Blush.

I am the newest member of the cream blush — specifically of Lancôme Color Design Blush — bandwagon.  I have this in Prêt a Plum, and I am dying to get my hands on more colours from this line.

It was actually an unforeseen gem from some blushes I received from a fellow blogger (you know who you are!).  Before I tried it, I had no intentions of ever buying cream blushes fearing that they will:

  1. be sticky,
  2. be difficult to blend, and
  3. melt off my face.

Luckily for me, Lancôme Color Design Blush is none of the above.

Swatches of Prêt a Plum

Lancôme really hit the nail on the head on the cream blush texture.  The blush is a deliciously smooth cream-to-powder formula that is idiot-proof.  It has a very slight dewy finish, so it looks like your skin, only blushing. 😉  It has great staying power when worn on its own, but my favourite way to wear it is layered under a complementing powder blush.  Even on my oily skin, the colour on my cheeks lasts all day.  Can you imagine?  A blush that lasts through the greasies and sweat, and does not rub off on my iPhone?  Pretty impressive, no?

I decided to Google reviews of this product and it only returned a handful of results.  I’m really surprised that this doesn’t get more love from beauty blogs, because it is the best cheek product I have come across.  I have no complaints about this blush.  Oh, actually I do have one: I don’t own all the colours.  Love this.  Rating: A+.

A message from Scherbatsky

I guess Scherbatsky wants to make her presence known on the blogosphere since she just jumped on my keyboard and typed this message for you:

  • lovely color! I am not a fan of cream blushes because of my oily skin, but after reading your review, i cannot wait to try it. just have to find out if its available here in Philippines. 🙂


    • Ooh let me know if you do find and try it. 🙂 I’m really impressed with this.

  • gio

    Thanks for the review. I love cream blushes and this shade is beautiful. Can’t wait to try it!

    • Oooh what are your other favourite cream blushes? I want to try more! 🙂

  • Joy

    Yay! So glad you loved it! It is a beautiful blush and I agree – totally underrated! Love the new kitty!!! so adorable!

    • Thanks for the new obsession (I guess). 😛

  • Translation:
    The training program proceeds better than expected. I have taught them to feed me, to clean up after me, but these are basic human tricks that any cat can master. I’ve gotten internet access, and can use this to coordinate my world domination tour.

    I just have to learn how to type properly…

    • LMAO! Best comment ever. 😀

  • I totally love this blush. But I don’t seem to find the Pret a Plum or Petticoat Pink anywhere online. The US Lancome site says the blush is a last call item, are they discontinuing it? Thanks for any help

    • Hey Carolina! Actually I’m not so sure. The Canadian Lancome site still has them, so perhaps they are phasing it out where you are? Still that would NOT be good at all. 🙁
