My thoughts on Apicia blush creme
I received this in one of my Glossyboxes and was really looking forward in trying it out.
I have really dry skin and always prefer my products to be in cream or liquid form instead of powder, since powders makes my skin even drier.
The color is just my type of color, it is rosy red and just the perfect color for my skin type. But now comes the but part.
The blush is filled with sparkling fine glitter which really is a big no no for me. The glitter spreads all over my face and the weirdest part is that I can only see the glitter in artificial light. When I look in daylight I doesn’t see the sparkling at all.
The blush is scented, and it is not a very nice smell at all. I really don’t have a word for it but just not fresh explains at least something.
The packaging is nice, it comes in a tube that is completely filled with product and it is easy to get a good amount of product out without overdoing it.
I follow the Korean skincare routine, which simply means that I layer my skincare products in 10-12 steps. This blush doesn’t work at all with my skincare routine. It becomes really patchy and looks awful on my skin.
When I apply Apicia blush creme without any products underneath it behaves like expected. Still is some weird shit going on with it. When I start blending it in, it looks really nice and I see the color fine on my skin, then it seems to fade just as quick, and I am left with just a tiny bit of color and I really don’t know what to think. Is it only behaving like this on my skin or is it weird on everybody?
So, I decided to go for other ways of using it. on my eyelids. Hmmm nope no way, the color looks really weird even as a base and patchiness is still an issue.
The only place I used it is on my lips and that is the only way I could ever imagine me using it ever again. Though I would expect it to be tossed in the “not touching ever again” bag
I can truly say that is the second most worst blush I have ever tried….. so far.. and the price, well just let me say that you don’t get what you pay for.
