The All Natural Face Cream Blushes

I've been using The All Natural Face's cream blushes for the last few months, so I figured it was about time I came back and shared my thoughts on them.  These have been getting a good bit of hype in the green beauty community recently and I think it's well deserved.

The formula is lovely.  The blushes are very creamy and not at all greasy or waxy.  Pigmentation varies a little across shades, but they're all decently pigmented and blend easily, so you're never left with splotches of uneven color.  I find it easiest to apply them with just my fingers, which gives you a lot of control over how fast you build up the color, but you can certainly use a brush too.  On their own, the blushes start to fade after five or six hours, but you can extend their wear by setting them with a powder blush or translucent powder.  


I'm a big fan of the packaging too.  The blushes come in small black compacts, complete with a mirror, that are perfect for toting around with you.  I'll admit my first inclination is still to reach for a powder product over a cream, but there's no denying that cream blushes can be better for achieving a natural, dewy, fresh look.  I especially enjoyed using them in the winter, when my skin was drier, but they're working well in the warmer weather too.  

There's a large color selection of both matte and shimmery shades so there should be one to suit anyone's taste.  You can also use these on your lips, though I don't find myself doing so very often.  I haven't used Barbie, which I bought for my mom, but of the other three, I think only Peachy Rose works as a lip color.  Tequila Sunrise and Peach Goddess are both shimmer blushes and they end up looking very frosty on the lips.

My one consistent complaint with The All Natural Face is that it's hard to choose colors based on the company's website.  In this case, there are photos of the powdered blushes, but some of the colors change quite significantly when added to the cream base.  Peach Goddess, for instance, which in powder form looks like a peachy highlight shade, is a pigmented bronzey-peach in the cream.  Even so, I am happy with what I ended up with.  The blushes are super affordable and they perform well.  If you're in the market for cream blushes, these are definitely worth checking out!

There are also a good number of swatches circulating by now to give you a better idea of the colors.  I'd recommend checking out the ones done by Mary of Pure Makeup and Nicole of EcoChicBeautyDiva.  Brianna of iluvjesse444 also has a video showing a bunch of the colors.

  2. I LOVE those colours!! The ingredients are very nice too! I'm going to try this out someday. How is the finish? Is it very moisturising or leans slightly dry?

    1. You definitely should! The finish is pretty moisturizing, not at all dry or cream-to-powder like some cream blushes. I usually like to set them with a translucent powder to take down some of the creaminess, but it's not something you need to do by any means.

  3. These look absolutely amazing. There aren't many healthy cream blushers that would look like any other brand on the market, but these are definitely unique.
