Do you like to have glowing cheeks? Then blush should be a must in your vanity. And if it comes from a widely popular brand like Maybelline New York, you cannot help but love it. Nowadays, every other makeup brand is hiking prices like crazy, but Maybelline has not done anything like this yet, thankfully. Instead, it always offers fantastic products at affordable prices. Today, I will review the Maybelline New York Cheeky Glow Blush (Creamy Cinnamon), which is one of such amazing blushes launched by the brand. But, first, let’s see how it worked on me.

Maybelline New York Cheeky Glow Blush is packaged in a round plastic pot, which is very tiny and easily fits the palm. It is a white-colored pot with a transparent flip-top lid, and you can quickly identify the shade of the blush from outside. There is a peel-off sticker at the back of the pot, which allows you to sneak peek into the list of ingredients used in the product. The packaging is compact, cute, and travel-friendly. However, it is not very sturdy. So, you must handle it carefully.
However, there is no brush included in the packaging, and I don’t have any issue with that as the included brushes are always useless. The mirror is also missing, so you need to carry a mirror with you for touch-ups.
Look And Feel
Maybelline New York Cheeky Glow Blush is a baked blush, proved by its raised dome shape. It is a finely-milled product with a very smooth texture that is relatively effortlessly blended. In addition, the product has a silky texture for providing uniform coverage. It also has shimmers in it, which are not at all chunky. Instead, they give a subtle satin finish.

My Take On Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush (Creamy Cinnamon)
The shade from the Maybelline New York Cheeky Glow Blush range, which I’m reviewing in this post, is named ‘Creamy Cinnamon’. It is a dermatologically-tested, non-comedogenic product from Blush Studio by Maybelline. The shade is a very pretty peachy-brown shade with sheer pigmentation in it. It is a universal shade that suits almost all skin tones beautifully. I have a dusky complexion, and this one works well on me as it looks completely natural.
Though the blush looks brown in the pan, it translates into peach on the cheeks with hints of brown in it. In my opinion, it is apt for beginners and the pros, who like to have the faintest hints of color on their cheeks. It is a decently pigmented product that adds a mild flush to the cheeks with a beautiful satin-like sheen. Typically, 2-3 swipes of it are enough for my dusky complexion. However, a single swipe may also be visible on your cheeks if you have a fair complexion.
This blush’s texture and pigmentation make it a clear winner for me, and I don’t have any issue in this department. Though it is a light and muted color, it is quickly buildable. Hence, you can never go overboard with this one, which is a plus.
The blush gives a matte finish, perfect for daytime application. As said earlier, it also contains fine shimmers, which add a nice subtle glow to my cheeks. This particular shade of blush is great for every day as it looks completely natural. The staying power of the product is decent considering its low price tag. It usually lasts for around 2-3 hours. A primer underneath can extend the wear-time even more.

Concentrate the color on the apples of your cheeks and blend well. Then, apply the blush along your cheekbones for instant contours.
