MUA Ritzy Luxe Whipped Velvet Blush Review & Swatch

Cream blushes may not be everybody's cup of tea for oily to combination skinned beauties worry it may melt if their skin and dry beauties worry it may cause dry patches. I have combination to oily skin and I would always stay away from cream blushes. If I would use them it would be very on a rare occasion . My first cream blush was from Maybelline dream touch blush in peach and I was blown off by the beautiful stain it left on my cheeks but with time the cream blush would look cakey and melt away if not topped off with powder blush or translucent powder. But things changed after I used a cream blush from another brand. Its all about your skin type.

After which I used a cream blush from Makeup Revolution which was more on the matte side than the maybelline which was sheer and shiny on my cheeks. I fell in love with the Makeup Revolution cream blush and that is when I started purchasing cream blushes and now I have quite a few of them.
Today I am going to review a gorgeous cream blush which is between a powder and cream- so velvety  from MUA Luxe range!

One Word:

Packaging of MUA Ritzy Luxe Whipped Velvet Blush:

The cream blush comes in a small round black plastic pan with a screw cap. The screw cap is a see through with the name of the range and brand written in black. The packaging is sturdy and even though the blush slipped from my hands once it did not break. Overall the packaging is travel friendly and sturdy plus the see through portion on the cap makes it easier to locate the shade from the blush stash.


Its super soft and velvetty in nature, the name ' Whipped velvet' does complete just to this. It feels like soft whipped cream when touched. The texture is between powder and cream and hence it is best to use a stippling brush or your fingers to bend this your cheeks.


Highly pigmented, a little goes a long way. One must be careful when it comes to application. To much of the product might end making you look funny.



Staying Power:

Stays for a good 4 hours without primer underneath.

Shade/ Colour:

Even though the color looks bright pink in the small pan it is a lovely flush pink when applied to the apples of my cheeks.

My experience with MUA Ritzy Luxe Whipped Velvet Blush :

I was absolutely in love with the texture of these cream blush! This cream blush is uber cute and awesome when it comes to staying power and pigmentation. As I have oily skin I was scared of using it for outings which lasted more than 6 to 7 hours in the sun. But I was surprised that this cream blush blend into y skin like velvet and gave my cheeks the natural-looking flush, This blush from the' MUA Luxe Velvet Range' is a must try for it can blend into the skin better than a powder.  Also it is way to easier to use than you may think it is, but it can also improve your makeup game. I was sold to their light weight formula which was soft and felt like velvet on my cheeks. I can go on and on about this cream blush. But I do wish I had chosen a lighter shade as this cream blush is way too pigmented and I am worried I can never finish this  off even if I used it on a daily basis my entire life!

I apply the MUA Luxe cream blush after I have applied my foundation. As the the blush is highly pigmented I use my fingers to pick up a little amount and use tapping motions to blend it into my skin. The cream blush blends like a dream. I start from the apple of my cheeks and blend it back towards my hairline. One must be careful with the blush as too much of the product will leave you with clown cheeks! As I am worried I don't end up with clown cheeks I start with little bit of product and layer it up to my desired intensity.

YES! But given the quantity I have received it is going to last forever and ever. Hence I would definitely try other shades like chichi which is a coral from this range.
