Rituel de Fille Cream Blush Review
I really loved the first Rituel de Fille Inner Glow Cream Blush I got as a gift in early December. I hadn’t used a cream blush in a while but using powders + the winter chill, for my skin, it just felt too drying.
I was obsessed with moody plum shades and Rituel de Fille’s “Lovesick” was a perfect winter cheek with pigment that easily lasted through snowy walks and freezing winds. Dab a little on the cheeks, paired with a shimmering eyeshadow, and some chapstick for the lips, and that was my daily winter routine for quite a long time!
Then I was asked last month about how I was liking the blush and I realized it had become my favorite and I wanted more…
It was difficult to choose which shades I wanted. Outside of the official swatches there was little reviewed about them. Usually I don’t feel compelled to review any new makeup because there’s usually already 50 other blogs with swatches and thoughts and nice photos. Rituel de Fille didn’t seem to have as much of a presence unfortunately. So I decided I’d try my best at putting a review together for anyone that may be interested in these cream blushes. It’s my first swing at a video review so bare with me.

Rituel de Fille Inner Glow Cream Blush
Simple natural ingredients and cruelty-free
Every shade is cheek, eye and lip safe
Captivating sleek packaging
Takes a few practice runs to master application
What I like about Rituel de Fille’s cream blush is how bare-bones they are with ingredients. There’s nothing extra. No fillers and no synthetic dyes or fragrance. It’s free from paraben, sulfate, phthalate, and cruelty. And even on my very acne-prone skin it hasn’t caused a single pimple. Not even questionably. Some cream blushes make me think, “Oh, is this pimple from the blush? I dunno, I dunno.” But Rituel de Fille hasn’t given me a single skin woe to question.
Chanel ILLUSION D’OMBRE in Vision
Purchased two of Chanel’s cream eyeshadows a few weekends ago after Karme convinced me they were the bees knees. I originally just went for the shade mirage. A neutral shimmery beige. However when I saw the gold shade of vision with its stunning chunks of sparkle I got it as well. I had been looking for a gold cream shadow to replace the Dolly Wink version I tossed months ago.
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre
Sparkles like a star (photo doesn’t do it justice)
Easy to apply
Easy to remove
No creasing when used with an eyeshadow base
Application brush is really stiff
Some sparkles left after initial face washing
The application brush is a lot stiffer than I thought it would be. It’s ok for applying the color as a liner but I haven’t quite found a good use for it. Also there is some dreaded “leftover” sparkle after washing away the eyeshadow at first but a quick second splashing can remove that. I haven’t been stuck with glitter all over my face for days like I have been with other cream glittery shadows. If I accidentally touch too low under my eye when applying I can simply wet a tissue and wipe it away easily.
The mirage color is even easier to apply and remove and both of these are great for low-maintenance makeup days. Really glad I got these. :)
