Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Blush in "330 Rosy Plum": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Happy Monday everyone! Today I have an exciting new product from Make Up For Ever to introduce to y'all- the HD High Definition Cream Blush. Available in 16 beautiful shades ranging from natural to bright, this new line of cream blushes promises to deliver the most natural looking flush that blends perfectly and feels weightless on the skin. I received the shade "#330", a natural dusty rosy plum. To read more, click......

The HD Cream Blushes ($31 for 2.8g) comes in a sleek and shiny black compact with a mirror. The cream blush pan is securely attached to the compact by a strong magnet so it is easily depottable if you wish to store the blush in a makeup palette instead.
The cream blush has a very light, smooth, and creamy texture. And as promised, it feels very weightless when worn on the cheeks. "#330" is a very natural warm dusty rose with plum undertones. I quite like how natural it looks on the cheeks but the product is definitely buildable.
Compared to Stila Convertible Colors, these are much lighter and aren't as tacky. After the application the cream blush almost turns into a powder, which is very good for oily skinned gals like me.

The only thing lacking with this blush for me is the wear. I worn mine over CC cream and under a setting powder and I noticed that the color dramatically faded after four or so hours. It could be that I didn't wear a lot of the product to begin with but it may also be caused by the oiliness of my skin. Regardless I would have appreciated a better lasting power.
In conclusion, I like this cream blush, it applies like a dream and the rosy color is right up my alley. However, do take note of the shorter wear time, for lasting color you may have to touch up during the day.
