Max Factor miracle touch cream-y blush + FOTD

I have to stop doing obnoxiously long intros!! so let just go and see the pictures and talk in between..! :D

The only cream blushes i own!
for reference! :)
I've be DYING to get my hands on cream blush for quite sometime now.. and i really never considered Maxfactor.. cause i never really bought anything from them before(:P) and honestly, the pan is too small.
but as you can see.. i id go ahead and buy it eventually.. cause i couldn't bear to go through the winters without a cream blush! i was craving that glow that my dry skin in super-dry Hyderabad climate lacked completely!
A very pretty doll pink colour.. I lovee it.. this was my first buy from Maxfactor ever! (stole from Deb)
Bright red in the pan, this blush is the colour of my natural blush on my cheeks. :) (stole from Rads)

i love love love how this looks!
Okay so the blended version is brighter compared to my face cause it showed up brighter on my hand and I used more on my hand..
 I applied this using my fingers.. (i sanitized continuously, Rati!)

anyway lets see the good and bad of Maxfactor miracle touch creamy blush

The Good:
  • This brings out a glow to my otherwise de-hydrated/ dry skin. loving the winters more!:)
  • It is not too sticky.. (i haven't used any other cream blushes.. but i am guessing).
  • 4/5 shades to choose from.. (well.. every brand that makes cream blushes would have 4/5 shades.. i'm guessing again.. :)
The Bad:
  • Too small a pan.
  • Dont think i can use it during summers.
  • Vanishes from my face! doesn't last even 2/3 hours! like seriously?!
  • Rs 560. please give me a bigger pan.
  • Packaging. but how else are you going to do this. but then.. i did get used/touched pans and i had to return them in shoppers stop and health and glow! but thats another story..
  • Tests its products on animals. i hate this. i honestly dint know this when i was getting this.. but now that I do.. i dont think i would get any more from MaxFactor.
  • I mean, i am off Maybelline and L'oreal.. i am just new to MaxFactor.. Guys you are making awesome products! just stop doing it cruelly! you will find more loyalists! oh but while i was getting these.. i got more stuff from MaxFactor.. i will talk about it in my next post.. :)
I love these right now.. may be because i dint use other cream blushes.. i dont know.. but right now.. i am wearing this all the time!
