Most of us consider changing some of our makeup products when the seasons change, either because you discover they need replacing, they don’t seem to suit you in the same way now or you just fancy a change.

If you’re like me and are kind of dreading not having that natural sun glowing flush in your cheeks any more, you might be looking for a new autumn blush that will give you that healthy glow appearance and this cute pot of cream blush from elf, Heart Breaker, might be just what you’re after!

What elf Say

“This amazing blush offers the best of both worlds. It smooths on as a cream for great texture and then transforms into a velvety soft powder finish for long lasting rich colour that’s never greasy. 

The lightweight, refreshing oil-free formula looks natural and radiates a beautiful glow perfect for all skin types. The soft powder finish can be layered for desire intensity and dimension.”

First Impressions

I love the pot design. Just like I love the Conditioning Lip Balms, as they’re packaged in the same way. The blush is 15g and when you pop the little protective cap off the top, the blush looks super velvety beneath and I was excited to try it.

I use my fingers to apply the blush to my cheeks. Just a quick dab and you can feel how soft the cream is, like velvet and how easy it will be to apply. With just a couple of dabs you can then brush around the cheek area. You really don’t need a great deal of this to get the look as above, so first impressions are great.

What Do I Think?

I’ve been using this blush for a few weeks now and feel it has a number of great qualities…

  1. Highly Pigmented This is a such a great benefit to this product. With just a few dabs you get enough product on your fingers to cover a good area, making the 15g last so much longer.
  2. Layering Ability I love how easily this product can be layered, so you can add and add until you have the desired intensity. So for a day look you can be far more subtle and add extra blush over the top for an evening look, without it feeling clumpy.
  3. Soft & Silky Feel I love how this cream blush doesn’t feel wet or sticky in any way. The fact that it applies like velvet and then settles on the skin so you wouldn’t know it was there, is a massive plus. It’s like a second skin!

From someone who’s been using the same blush for a while now, which I have to admit I do still really love, this I think will become a firm favourite now too.

I am also super impressed, as always, with the price point of this blush. Considering my current favourite is £8.50 for 4g and Heart Breaker from elf is an amazing £6.50 for 15g, I can see how my makeup collection will become filled more and more with elf products. They’re such great value for money, whilst being top quality at the same time. The ultimate combination. Wouldn’t you agree?

Have you tried Heart Breaker or any of the other five cream blushes in the range?

    I use bronzer a lot too, but guess I should stop now that the sun isn’t naturally hitting my face in the places I apply! Blush all the way for me now! x
