Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef and Pinched Swatches

Last summer Revlon added some cream blushes to their PhotoReady line.  I bought Pinched and Coral Reef since I love coral blushes (especially for spring and summer).  They also make a hot pink color called Flushed which I am considering buying...

They are packaged in a clear pot with a black lid that has a sticker label with the name of the color.

Revlon says:
  • Creamy blush provides buildable, beautiful flush of color
  • Lightweight formula with silky soft feel on skin
  • Blends evenly over cheeks for smooth application
  • Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to provide cheeks with a beautiful glow
(Yeah, I gouged Pinched with my fingernail!)

Coral Reef is a bright orange-y coral with no shimmer.
Pinched is a light peach with gold shimmer.

They have sort of a silicone-like feel to them and dry down to a powdery finish, so they don't really feel or apply like a traditional cream blush.  They look bright in the pot, but you can apply them sheerly and build up the color as desired.  Wear time on these is very good.

Pinched is quite a light color and works well as a highlighter as well as a subtle blush.

I think this is a really beautiful formula and they give a very pretty flush to the cheeks.
