Max Factor is not a brand I have a lot of experience with. The product I'm reviewing today is actually my first makeup product from them. I'm fairly certain that Max Factor and Covergirl are owned by the same company (I think I heard that from Fleur de Force) and considering Max Factor is quite a bit more expensive, I never really gave them much of a look. Though their Miracle Touch Creamy Blush is a product unique to their line and one that has been raved about by many a beauty blogger. I don't believe it's available in Australia yet (I've never encountered it in store and it's not on their website) so when I saw it in Sasa, I snatched it up.
I have the shade Soft Pink which is a medium pink shade with warm rose-y tones. I find this to be a very wearable, natural looking pink that brightens the face and gives it a youthful looking flush. It also looks lovely on the lips!
The texture of this cream blush is really nice. It's creamy and emollient without being too slippy or thin. The finish stays creamy, it ain't one of those cream-to-powder formulas. It isn't overly dewy on the skin though, it has more of a satin, semi matte finish to the skin which I think helps it not melt immediately off of the face. It still gives a natural, skin-like glow. However, it still isn't the longest lasting of blushes. Typically on my combination skin, I find that cream blushes only last for around four hours and this one is no exception. It does have one of the better lasting powers though. The pigmentation is also really good and doesn't require too much building. It blends easily into the skin and I like applying it with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush though fingers are also good. It does have a bit of a lipstick-y smell to it which makes me think it probably has similar ingredients to a lipstick. Regardless, it still works very well as both a blush and a lipstick, only slightly clinging to dry patches on the lips. This is though, probably one of the best cream blush formulas I've tried as it's has the best of almost all the factors.
The blush is packaged in a really tiny circular pan with a screw top lid. I like that there isn't any unnecessary bulk to the packaging but what does annoy me is that the amount of product inside isn't listed! The size could be incredibly deceiving, or it could contain just as small as an amount that it looks.
