Laura Geller Air Whipped Blush

Hi everyone! In today's Non-Stop November post... a blush review! I love trying out new blushes... there are so many colors and textures out there, and this Air Whipped Blush from Laura Geller is really unique. The price is $26 at QVC.com or Ulta.com. The first unusual thing you'll notice is the packaging... instead of flipping open a compact, you twist off this golden dome...

After removing a second cap that you're supposed to replace after use, you see the texture of the product. The shade I have is Whisper Petal... a very soft pink. It's kind of cool to the touch, and has a very moist, mousse-like feel. It really seems like it should be something edible. I don't think I've tried any blushes that feel just like this, but if you've ever tried Maybelline Dream Mousse blushes (which I love) they have a texture that's a bit more dry. This product has significantly more moisture in it.

The product is described as lightweight, buildable, and oil-free. I just apply it to my face with my fingers- and also applied it to my hand in the pic below, so you could get a clear look of how the color comes off without any other face products interfering. It's a soft pink- that seems even softer on my face... almost too soft. I'm pretty sure there are other shades available with more punch. Also, this shade doesn't contain shimmer or glitter.

Here's my overall thought on this... once I get over the thrill of the cooling sensation that this product provides, I'm left with a blush on my cheeks that doesn't offer much color, and even after you blend it in, it continues to have a bit of a moist feel. It just doesn't seem right to me. I've tried plenty of cream blushes that have been able to continue feeling like skin once they're applied. Maybelline Dream Mousse- with it's dryer consistency- blends in even more easily and just has a more even feel on the skin. This isn't a bad product, and some people (maybe those with dry skin?) might enjoy it. For me, I just don't think it's worth the $26 price tag. Still a big fan of the baked products in Laura Geller's line!

  3. I absolutely love the Maybelline Dream Mousse blush! I'm glad that it is comparable, if not better, than the pricier brands. Also, my husband and I are addicted to x-factor, I swear he stops breathing every time Drew sings! He's in love.

  6. I have one of the Maybelline Dream Mousse blushes. I really do like how it's really easy to apply and the finish is really smooth to the touch.

  10. I have one of LG's mousse blushes; mine is a lot darker than the one you have. I got it in a set from QVC that was a TSV a while back. I really like it...it goes on nicely and for me (and the darker shade) stays on very nicely. I apply it onto my hand with a foundation brush and then apply to the apples of my cheeks. I didn't know about the Maybelline version. I think I'll have to stop into Walgreens to check it out this weekend. Thanks for the review! I'm liking your daily postings!

  13. Just wondering if you have heard of http://www.birchbox.com/? I've heard good things. I am afraid to try it because I already spend too much on beauty products to be introduced to more every month. :)
