Like many, I was happy to slap tinted moisturizer/foundation/BB cream onto my face, blending it in with my fingers and calling it a day. Enter: cushion bases. Easy to use and conveniently portable, cushion applicators ensured the right amount of product, applied perfectly each time. Pores? Goodbye. Shine? Sayonara. Redness? Auf Wiedersehen. Hello, dewy glow forever.
The next logical step? Cushion blushers. Not only are these Peripera Ah Much Real My Blushers cute as hell, they get the job done and come in unique colors that Western blushes are yet to fully embrace.
Happy Coral, the orange blush dreams are made of; Pleased Pink, a sheer pink that doubles as a radiant highlighter; and Lovely Lavender, the ethereal lilac blush of dreams. Not dull or powdery, these blush formulas are luminous and slightly sheer, allowing natural skin to peek through.
Simply squeeze the container, and dab a little bit of product onto your cheeks, blending directly with the cushion. If you’re fancy, you can still use a brush or beauty blender to blend to perfection. Alternatively, use your fingers. Who’s judging?
For all you ride-or-die powder fans (full disclosure: this includes me), these blushes can add that ‘glow from within’ look that can be amped up with with a swirl of your favourite powder blush. This liquid/powder combo also prolongs your blush’s staying power, so your cheeks stay flushed from day to night (not only when you’ve done something embarrassing). Not bad for a little tube of blush.
