Cream blush was always one of those products that seemed simple in theory, problematic in real life. I’m talking about smudging and streaks, and never being able to figure out the right amount. But last week, when it was just too damn hot to put on any sort of powder, I unearthed a forgotten compact of Sue Devitt Cream Blush (in the oh so transporting Vanuatu). Instead of my fingers, I lightly swiped my regular blush brush across the compact and feathered the color onto my cheeks. It looked natural and, dare I say, dewy. Who knew it was so easy?
