Product Review: Shiseido Color Stick

I have been searching for more cream blushes to add to my collection after I had so much luck with my last one. So I was very excited when I came across the Shiseido Makeup Color Stick ($32) at Sephora last weekend.

My eye was initially drawn to the bright fuschia streamlined container, and as usual, I selected the brightest shade of pink to try on first. Typically this would make me look like a clown and I would begrudgingly resign to testing a more reasonable shade next. (What can I say, I'm like a moth to a flame with bright pink!). But not this time! The bright Rosy Flush shade imitated a perfect natural blush on my skin. Furthermore, it went on as smooth as butter and blended effortlessly.

The best part of all is that when I get home from work now and look in the mirror, it looks like I just applied the Color Stick moments before rather than nine hours earlier. I realize the price is steep for a blush, but the fact that it lasts all day is worth the cost for me. And since the color is highly pigmented, a little goes a long way, so I plan to have a long-term relationship with this item.

bailaoragaditana - having a really good blending brush helps!I love this colour. I saw a video demostration using a colour very similar to this and at first I thought it would be way too bright, but it looked so pretty on!The price is a little steep for blush though :S

Matenselo -I use Benefit's Benetint. It's pretty light, and since it's liquid, not creme, it blends really easily. I like creme blush, but I like the liquid one most of all... ^.^

I've never had a good relationship with cream products generally... I dunno, I just don't seem to get the hang of them. :-(

Gorgeous! I love cream blushes. They're so good when you have dry skin.

I bought my first cream blush just this week actually. It's okay but not exactly what I'm looking for. I have a question though, and any advice is appreciated. I don't wear foundation but I do wear concealer on each cheek because of some red marks left behind from acne. Powder blush just clings to the concealer even if it's dried, so that's what made me think a cream blush would work better. I tried dusting with powder before applying the blush, but it still "sticks" better to the areas with concealer. My questions is - how do you girls recommend applying blush on top of concealer? I'm sure I'm not the only one out here with the clinging-problem (I ended up with two darker blotches of blush on each cheek!) Would a cream blush work best - maybe patted on top of the concealer?
