Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef

When I first saw Revlon's Coral Reef cream blush, I was attracted to the color but thought it was too dark for my complexion.  However, during a recent 40% off sale on Revlon products at Ulta, I decided it was time to give it a try.  I'm glad I did, it's lovely!
Applied lightly
Don't let the vibrancy of the color in the pan fool you into thinking it looks garish on, as Coral Reef can be a soft wash of color or you can built it up to a darker stain.  The finish is a smooth cream to powder and I had no issues with it settling into my pores or looking patchy. 
Two layers of Coral Reef
Coral Reef, one of three cream blush colors created by Revlon's artistic director Gucci Westman for the 2012 Spring collection, was inspired by the glowing skin of a beach beauty.  I actually broke it out on the first fall like day Mobile has experienced this year, one of those gorgeous low humidity, cool and sunny days that make you happy to be alive:-)
You are getting a hefty .44 oz for the almost $13 Coral Reef costs (I paid $7.94 with the discount).   There are two other Photoready cream blush colors available - the bold hot pink Flushed and the soft apricot Pinched - which I'll probably pick up when another good sale roles around. 


  1. They need to release more colors!! This product could very well compete with the stila cream blushes!

    1. I agree! Maybe we'll see some more limited edition colors this spring.

  2. Very pretty! And good to know it doesn't apply clownish! :)
