Back to a beauty review, I do miss these. This Scream & Pout Rose Quartz Blusher Cream and Colour (£10) arrived in my post one day out of the blue. I mean no correspondence, nothing, I have no idea how this company got my address and it has me feeling a little paranoid if I am honest. But, I am definitely grateful that they sent me a blush and not hate mail so I thought I would do a quick review on this anyway. I am in Iceland right now so this post was written and scheduled ahead of time *snaps for Kiran*. I don't have wifi in Iceland so this post is most likely going to get about 10 views. If you haven't already: follow me on Bloglovin' so you won't miss a post, you don't get pestered at all, but my recent posts will appear in your feed. It's a fantastic way to collate all the blogs you like. 

Onto the review, I am not a fan of cream products because I have combination to oily skin. The packaging is nice, the compact is very small. There is no mirror in the compact and although it is nice packaging I don't think it looks like it is worth £10. I think the blushes in Primark and other affordable high street brands have a similar appearance and they cost a tenth of the price most of the time. When I say it is small it is about the same size as if you were to join the tip of your thumb and your index finger together to make a circle you will understand how big the whole blush is.

I like the logo and the name of the company which is not a brand I have heard or received anything from before. I don't know their backstory or if they are completely new. I am only basing this on the product I received. The blush is a cream to powder formula, the shade Rose Quartz is a pale peachy pink. It is matte and has a soft cushiony feel. The colour looks suited to people with paler skin than me, in the pan it doesn't look as bright as it swatches. 

Below, you can see the swatch of Rose Quartz and although it looks quite muted and neutral in the pan, which is exactly what I like in a blush, it is a lot brighter and pinker on my skin. It isn't very pigmented and I found it difficult to blend and appear natural on my skin.. I have to say I do think I am slightly biased because the colour is just completely wrong for my skin tone and preferences. This would look lovely on someone with fair to light skin, like a sweet natural wintry flush but it is just a little cool for my undertone. I think you can definitely make this blush work and it would be a good product to include in your routine if you wanted to layer your products for longevity. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this particular blush as it just isn't worth the £10 price tag. If you  like the colour and you like cream to powder formulas then this might be a good product for you.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you are all having an amazing week, if you want to stay up to date with my blog, follow me on Bloglovin', if you want to see what I am getting up to in Iceland follow me on Instagram and on SnapChat (both alittlekiran) and I will post something whenever I have wifi. My next post is scheduled for Friday and will be my December Goals. Quick disclaimer this product was sent to me, I did not purchase it with my own money but as I have literally no correspondence with this brand I cannot say that it was sent to me for a review, for all I know it was actually meant for someone else, but in the spirit of full disclosure that's the sitch. Take care. 

Do you prefer cream or powder blushes?




  1. How did you use to apply this blusher, Kiran? I always use stippling brush for cream blushers as I swear it's the best way for application. I will agree that this shade is suited for fair/light skin tone. I don't think my medium skin tone will look great with it either.

    1. I tried using a duo fibre brush, a beauty sponge, a stippling brush and a buffing brush. I found I got the best colour pay off with my fingers but it was tougher to blend. The best way I think for this one, at least for me, is to pat it on with fingers and then blend out with a duo-fibre brush. Thank you for reading Shireen x

  2. I think the colour is stunning! I've never found a great brush for applying cream blushes so would love to hear what you use! xx

    1. Duo-fibre brushes work best for me I think, but I am not a fan of cream blush as a whole haha, thank you for reading. Can't wait to read your posts and catch up xxx

  3. Hi Kiran! I hope you're well and having a fun time in Iceland. Thank you for sharing your review of this product. I hadn't heard of this particular brand, but thank you bringing them to my attention. I know what you mean, it's so important to find a true match with make-up, and products that are well-suited to Asian skin tones.

    Love Saba xx
