This or That: Makeup Forever HD Blush Vs. Sonia Kashuk Creme Blush

It's baaack! This or That, one of my most-liked series is back by popular demand. Every week or so I'll compare 2 similar beauty products, with one usually being high end and one being drugstore. Up first are two cream blushes, Makeup Forever HD Blush in Coral and Sonia Kashuk Creme Blush in Rosey. Let's check out the info on each:



Makeup Forever HD Blush in Coral
  • $26
  • 15 shades
  • $9.79
  • 3 shades
  • I originally shared it here in my latest haul.

Makeup: Garnier BB Cream, Lancome mascara, blushes (see below), L'Oreal Glossy Balm
I'm wearing MUFE on one cheek and SK on the other,
Arm swatches of blushes
Paper swatches of blushes

-All pics taken in natural light

This or That?
  • As you can tell from the swatches above, these are so similar in color and look indistinguishable on my cheeks.
  • I loved the creamy texture of both of these blushes, which felt similar.
  • The ingredients are similar, but there is nothing extraordinarily different. If you are really into that, click the links to see the ingredients for each.
  • I found the MUFE blush to come across a little more pigmented on camera, but they look the same in person.
  • After thoroughly testing each in a variety of ways, I've found the wear time to be around the same for each.
    • If you are looking for a variety of shades of cream blushes, you'll want the MUFE.
    • If you are looking for an inexpensive, pigmented cream blush, with the same quality as the MUFE, choose the Sonia Kashuk.

  1. ok this is such a great idea for a blog series! look forward to them. i'd go with the SK just because its more affordable and i can never get a good enough routine going for an expensive kind!

  35. I love the pigment of the Makeup Forever pod. So pretty!

  36. Great post, I have two cream blushes that I need to use more often.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I recently tried a sample of the MUFE cream blush and loved it, granted, I've never tried the SK one so I cannot compare. I'll have to make a mental note to pick one up at some point as I liked the MUFE formula so much, it's awesome to know that the SK version is so similar. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Will give that Sonia Kashuk a try!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ooo, I love looking at all the pretty blushes, but I'm never sure which one is right for me! Thanks for the insight into these products, I'll have to take a look! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I do love posts like this, it's like your teaching people how to beat the system ;) Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've never used a cream blush before, is it difficult to apply? I'm sure you have a video tutorial somewhere, I'll have to look. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Both look great on you! Fab review, Elle. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  43. I live and die for Sonia Kashuk blushes, and especially coral ones!! And I love a cheap creme blush:)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh I have cream blushes from nyx, I might have to try the sonia kashuk one it's a really pretty shade. I think the MUFE one is a little pricey for me but I'm glad to hear that the sonia kashuk one is comparable.
