Glow up in a swipe with beauty Uk Sweet Cheeks Cream blush stick in vanilla ice - Review


Not very long  time ago , I received this super cute and chubby blush stick in my mail, which I was like okay , Mehhh , not excited to use and stuff like that , just because it was a cream based product and I am not much of a fan of cream products (Thanks to this sweltering heat ). This goes as the reason behind this delayed review BUT trust me this is worth the read if you are on the outlook of a highlighter that gives that perfect highlighted 100 watt glow to your skin and makes it look really healthy. I have started using this ,rather exploiting this blush stick ( which works as a highlighter in this particular shade) because I wear it every where , literally every where , some times to the kitchen as well ( How about that ?) and it gives that super beautiful glow that I absolutely love. 

OK , enough with the raving ,lets head over to the review and get to know this little chubby guy and how to use it and fall in love with it .

It is easy to apply and can be blended either with a brush or your fingertips allowing you complete control over the intensity of your desired finish.

 TIP! Use the highlighting shade no.6 in Vanilla Ice to complete your contoured look.



My Experience:

Beauty UK Creme Blush Stick- Vanilla Ice

The Beauty UK Cream Blush sticks come in 6 different shades that includes some beautiful berry to pinks peaches and a champagne ,which I own luckily. These Blushers come in a short chubby stick with a twist up mechanism. The color of the packaging is same as the product which makes it easy to spot in your stash .The packaging is pretty sturdy and definitely travel friendly because it has survived travel bag ,which is a total disaster to be honest.
The shade I have is Vanilla Ice ,which is a super gorgeous champagne. The formula is creamy and glides on easily over the cheekbones ,no tugging what so ever. Since its cream formula , many of you might not like the oiliness or tackiness that it gives after the application ,but its really not bothersome for me as it melts into the skin after a while and doesn't feel tacky at all , the oiliness, however, remains.
About the application, I like to directly apply it on the high points of my cheeks and bridge of nose from the stick and then blend it out with my fingers. One thing should be kept in mind that the color is super light and doesn't show up much on the skin ( you will see in the swatch below) , so you might get disappointed that it isn't showing up and is a useless thing ( Just like what happened to me ) ,so I kept layering it over and over again and then gave up. BUT here is the catch , apply it on your cheek bones as much as you like ( You can not simply go over board with this) , just tap with your fingers to lightly blend it and step back from the mirror , move your face slowly , and here is that glow ! yes you can actually see the highlighter but when the light hits your face glows up like a light bulb (no exaggeration !).  I haven't used any brush or sponge to blend it out because fingers do the right job for me. May be with the darker colors that actually work as the blush, using a sponge will be a better idea.

The color is really subtle champagne, with no visible or chunky glitter. The Shea butter formula makes it super smooth and it melts right away after application. It doesn't settle into pores or fine lines hence it doesn't accentuate them which is a total plus for me. It gives a really nice Glow from within kind of look that looks absolutely amazing. However if you are that in-your-face kind of highlighter person, you can just layer it up with your favorite powder highlighter and get that intense glow, because it provides such a nice base to them.

The staying power is a good 5-6 hours if left undisturbed  and you just don't wipe it off with sweat. If you top it off with powder highlighter the wear time increases considerably. The oiliness might be a little turn off for oily skin beauties, but still they can use it with setting with powder or may be in winters to have a fresher look. 
All in all, I am in love with this chubby little thing. It has made my life super easy  and super Glowy. Totally recommended to you guys.
