Maxfactor Creme Puff Blush.. My Thoughts

Hey there,

Like many beauty bloggers, the Hourglass Ambient Light Blushers are a dream looking product for me. They have gorgeous packaging and the marble effect on the top of the blush makes me swoon a little. However the £28 price tag has always put me off taking the plunge.

Then recently, Maxfactor brought out a range of blushes, which within a few days of them being released were announced as dupes of their famous hourglass counterparts. Of course I was going to buy some of the blushes and Boots were doing a 3 for 2 offer so I picked up three.

Left to Right Lovely Pink, Nude Mauve, Seductive Pink

These blushers are an interesting concept. They aren't strongly pigmented on the hand or skin but as you can see they have some colour to them, which is good because it gives your skin a little colour which is what blush are for.

But the thing that makes these different to any other blush that I have (bar one) is that there is something about them that give the skin an inner warmth to them. The only other blush that has had that ability has been MAC Warm Soul and that has been a favourite for a good year now so it's nice that it has some friends to sit with.

I think it is definitely safe to say that I'm a fan of these Maxfactor blushes and I now want Lavish Mauve from the range AND I also really want an Hourglass Ambient Light Blush to compare. Any suggestions of the best Hourglass shade?

Have you tried these blushers? What do you think of them?

Lots of Love,



  1. I have the shade Seductive Pink from this range and I think it is really pretty. I think I will get a lot of wear out during spring/summer. x

  2. They look so pretty! The Hourglass ones have been on my wishlist for the longest time but I think I'll try these first!

  3. I’m obsessed with these blushers, I had been lusting after the Hourglass blushers for ages so these have been a welcomed dupe :)
