The All Natural Face Bubblegum Cream Blush: Review, Swatches and Comparison

The All Natural Face now has cream blush versions of all 27 of their powder blushes, and I recently bought 4 to try out:  Bubblegum, Peachy Rose, Everyday is a Good Day, and Really Red.  Today I've got Bubblegum for you.
Bubblegum is medium pink that really does capture the tone of pink bubblegum.  I wanted to compare the cream version to the powder version of Bubblegum to see how similar they are.  The cream version packs more of a color punch, although you can control the amount of color quite easily.  The powder is more sheer and has sparkle, and I found it more difficult to build up color.

The finish of the cream blush is more dewy, although nothing that veers into greasiness.  The texture is actually quite lovely and natural looking.  It spreads nicely and I had no issues with patchiness or settling into pores.  The powder version is more matte, and surprisingly, I liked the finish of the cream better.
Bubblegum powder blush
What really got interesting is when I layered the powder over the cream, as there is a very slight blue tint that was evident at certain angles, plus the color was punched up some more.

To apply, I've been using my fingers to lightly dot along my cheek bone and then blending with a stipling bush.  The all natural formula is organic jojoba oil, organic argan oil, candelilia wax, mica, titanium dioxide, boron nitride, and oxides.  It's hot here in Mobile now, and some of the oils collected the rim of the container during shipping.  It didn't seem to affect the blush, but something to be aware of if you live in a hot climate.  The cream blushes are lip safe as well, although I find them a bit dry for that purpose.  I'm wearing Bubblegum on my cheeks and lips below.
Here you can see how Bubblegum is a bit rough looking alone on my lips, although it looks much better with a bit of gloss on top.

The cream blushes are very reasonably priced at $5.75, and they are on sale for $4 through May 31st.  The All Natural Face is also offering free shipping for the Memorial Day weekend, ending at midnight May 27th (I have no affiliation with The All Natural Face, just want to let you know about available deals). 

I'm impressed with both the color and wear of Bubblegum, and look forward to seeing how the others perform!  Tempted to pick up some others during the sale, but we shall see.

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.


  1. That's a really pretty color! It really complements your skin and coloring! I've just recently started trying cream blushes. The only one I've liked so far is a Mally Beauty blush that has a cream/powder duo. It's easy to blend and lasts all day.

    1. Thank you! I haven't tried much from Mally yet, just an eye liner. I'll keep an eye out for the blush.

  2. How interesting they made a cream version of all their blushes! I have pretty oily skin so I generally stick to powder but cream blushes usually provides a more natural finish

    1. My skin is very oily, but these don't seem to add to it! I'm surprised, as that was a concern.
