If only the word “whip” didn’t have so many … other … connotations!
Redpoint Airbrush Effects Blushwhips are really excellent little products. As per the name, they have a lovely whipped texture that is somewhere between mousse and pudding. (Once again, note to self: do not write blog posts while hungry.)
They come in two shades: Vida, which is a cool pink, and Glow, which is a very warm reddish-pink. Both are gorgeous. On my cool-toned skin I prefer Vida, especially since I don’t have any other cream or gel blush that’s the same shade. Glow is also very nice but since I’m fair-skinned it’s easy to go overboard. Both shades apply smoothly, blend gorgeously, and have excellent staying power (well, OK, that’s true of most cream and gel products, but it’s worth saying again).
My only complaint, and this will not be news to regular readers, is that there is WAY TOO MUCH PACKAGING. The well that holds the product is housed inside a ginormous three-foot-thick plastic cylinder. (OK, I exaggerate just a little.) The end result is that the jars are unnecessarily heavy, take up too much space in my storage system, and are completely impractical for travel. So — Product: Yay! Packaging: Boo.
Swatch! Vida is on the left, Glow on the right. (Man, these are crappy swatches. They look gorgeous on cheeks but the swatches keep coming out terribly; that’s probably the fourth or fifth time I tried to swatch them.)
Redpoint Airbrush Effects Blushwhip, via DermStore: $14 each.
Price/Value Ratio (high-end: poor/fair/good/excellent): At this sale price, Good.
Purchase again? Yes.
