I have to admit, I’m not normally one for cream blush, but I couldn’t refuse Glossier’s newest makeup launch a few months ago. I don’t know if it was the cute paint tubes or the dreamy name, but Glossier Cloudpaints made me hand over the cash the minute they were launched. There are four shades in the Cloudpaint collection, but I shunned the two pinkier ones (Puff and Haze), that I know don’t really suit my skin tone, for the neutral (Dusk) and peachy (Beam) options.
They are a gel-cream formula that are incredibly lightweight, and don’t feel sticky in anyway and are very simple to apply with just your fingertips. I like to put a small amount on the back of my hand and then, using my fingers tap in the product to the cheek area. They are fairly sheer, so it is easy not to overdo it, but at the same time they are also very buildable, so you can choose your desired intensity. They blend beautifully and give that flushed-from-within glow that looks natural and seamless.
I love both the shades that I bought, Dusk is a nude pinky brown, so quite a neutral color, but one that goes with everything and gives slight bronzer vibes. My favorite of the two though is Beam, a beautiful peach that really lifts my complexion especially when I am feeling tired and adds that much needed pop of color!
For me, this is Glossier’s best launch to date and I would love to see more shades launched in the future and maybe a bronzer or highlighter in this formula as I think it would be stunning!
