I can’t believe how good Freck Cheekslime blush is.
I’m gonna be honest, I judged this blush by its name. Cheekslime just sounds icky to me for some reason! But, I am happy to report this formula is nowhere close to being icky. In fact, I really enjoy and love Freck Beauty Cheek Slime. It has a unique texture that is like a liquid-gel-cream hybrid and is super pigmented. The tiny little bottle (that looks reminiscent of a food dye bottle) features just shy of 1 fl oz of product, but it packs a punch.
Quick Rating Rundown
:Freck Beauty Cheekslime
Promises vs. Performance: Freck is right, this is the best blush job.
Freck Beauty Cheek Slime gives any skin tone “a multidimensional wash of color.” It has a buildable and blendable formula. But, Freck does note it dries down fast for an all day longevity. Because of this, Freck recommends applying one side at a time. This unique liquid blush (or is it a gel blush?) is infused with liquid plant collagen to nourish skin.
Is it just me or is the name ‘Cheekslime‘ a bit off-putting? However, the name fits the texture perfectly. Cheekslime is a really unique slimy, liquid-gel-cream hybrid. It’s super blendable and applies easily to cheeks. A little bit does go a long way, so I recommend squeezing the tiniest drop onto the back of your hand, warming it up with your fingers, and then picking it up with a brush. I like to apply by using stamping and buffing motions to work the product into my skin. It gives a beautiful natural, lit-from-within glow to my cheeks.
Even better, this blush has amazing longevity. After a full day of wear (8+ hours), my cheeks still look vivid. The blush does not wear patchy and does not accentuate any imperfections, such as pores, fine lines, or texture. I’ve got to say, this little bottle is quite the contender.
How It Compares: Freck Cheekslime holds its own among other cream and liquid blush formulas.
Cheekslime’s unique liquid-gel-cream hybrid formula is a good one. A little bit goes a long way with the pigment and it’s truly long wearing. It has a smooth application that isn’t patchy and doesn’t lift the base products below. I love that it doesn’t settle into pores, fine lines, or cling to texture regardless of how long I wear. And I easily get 8+ hours of wear with this makeup product which I love.
But, is it as good as my coveted Dew Blush from Saie Beauty? Dew Blush has half the amount of product (0.4oz versus 0.8oz) but there are a few more benefits in my opinion. First, its chubby doe foot applicator makes it easy to place the blush exactly where you want it and helps control the amount of product used. Second, I think it is more lightweight and buildable. The pigment is easier to diffuse or build for your perfect cheek look. If we’re talking a true cream blush, Rose Inc Blush Divine is absolutely stunning and can be used on both cheeks and lips for a versatile, monochromatic makeup look.
Other Formulas I Love
Intimidated by liquid and cream blush? I get it, because I once was too. I encourage you to try it as liquid and cream formulas are more user-friendly and longer wearing than powder formulas. But, if you’re not quite ready to dive into the world of liquid and cream blush, NARS makes an awesome powder blush that comes in over 26 versatile shades with a variety of finishes.
