Lancome is such an iconic luxury beauty brand. Created over 80 years ago in 1935 it has continuously innovated and adapted its products over the years to meet women’s real needs.

In 2015 Lancome was the first Western beauty brand to create a cushion foundation. It’s latest cushion foundation is the Teint Idole Ultra Cushion.

Since then Lancome has also developed another innovative product, the Cushion Blush Subtil.

I was lucky enough to receive one of these recently released Lancome Cushion Blush Subtils in the shade Sparkling Framboise to trial.

This blush comes in a minimalistic glossy black plastic case with the Lancome signature rose on the lid.

The inside of the lid conveniently contains a mirror enabling easy application of this blush when out and about and on the go.

The sponge applicator is stored in this compartment opposite the mirror. You then flip open the base of this section to reveal the cushion blush itself. The cushion blush is quite small but it packs a powerful vibrant effect.

You can vary the intensity of the blush by the amount of pressure you apply to the cushion with the sponge.
For a sheer tint of colour you just tap the cushion gently with the sponge. A little of this fluid blush goes a long way.

For a more intense colour you apply a medium amount of pressure to the cushion to release a bit more of the fluid blush.

You can use either the sponge applicator provided with the blush or your fingers to apply.

I found this blush to result in a lovely fresh dewy and youthful looking finish. 

It’s an impressive, innovative and fun product to use.   

The Lancome Cushion Blush Subtil retails for $60. It comes in seven rosy or orange variations. 

It is available at all Lancome counters nationally in David Jones and Myer stores and other selected retailers. It is also available for purchase online via the website.
