Here is another rave about Kjaer Weis’s Cream Blush in the shade: Happy. In my previous review on the shade: Embrace here, all my thoughts are still applicable so I will not inundate you with repetitiveness. So, let’s just look at all the pictures and get the happy feels!
PRODUCT: Blush in Happy. Made in Italy. Net wt. 0.12 oz./ 3.5g. $56/$32 (refill only)
PACKAGING: Shiny, good-weight-in-my-hands goodness from basically, heaven.
SHADE: As described on their site: “Everyone who’s seen this pink just smiles, so we had to name it Happy. Gorgeous on all skin colors, exceptional on darker complexions.” This is the stand out blush I was speaking to in my other post. This is type of color I am drawn to! Look at it! Doesn’t it look happy?! Perfect shade for everyday, every look. It even looks gorgeous on the lips!
INITIAL SWATCH: It looks bright in the pan and for some, scary bright. But it can be worn sheerly or layered for that intensity. If it was acceptable to apply blush all day and end up looking like a happy clown, I’d do it! The top swatch is obviously lighter and blended so this is what it would most likely look like on your cheeks or lips. The bottom is a heavier swatch to show the opaqueness of the shade and how bright it can get. This level of application would be so stunning in the summer on the ..lips (you almost thought I’d say cheeks, huh?)
APPLICATION: Six words: Kerry Gold Butter on warm toast.
EFFICACY: Again, like with ALL cream blushes, the lasting power is a bit less compared to powder blushes.KW does not make any claims about how long this product will last, but she does claim exuberant, creamy, velvety, and a natural finish. I say she hit all the nails on the head with these descriptors.
IS IT WORTH SHARING OVER COFEE?: Short answer: Yes. Long answer: One of the best cream blushes I have ever tried. I’ve tried many and this one just feels good on the skin all day. It is moisturizing and my face actually feels refreshed at the end of the day. That’s a big claim because many things dry my skin out, even “cream” products. Definitely one of the shades to have in this collection if you are a lover of bright, bold colors! How much I love this blush can be measured by the fact that I carry this with me in my bag, I don’t even carry anything more than my wallet, lip balm, and eye drops. If I met up with a friend for coffee who wasn’t wearing blush (and I believe we ALL need some level of blush- it’s just so pretty and fun!), I’d probably reach across the table and dab-dab-blend-blend this cream blush on their face for them! Run, don’t walk, to procure this blush!
