This is what I have been wearing on my cheeks for the last few weeks, and I thought I should share it with you guys because I bought this about a year ago and it just sat in my drawer until I realised that it can be worn on the cheeks, and not just the lips. This was limited edition, but I don't think this Movie Star Red shade sold very well, because there are numerous sellers on ebay that are selling this for around $15, and I bought this on strawberrynet for a similar price. That's another good thing about knowing how to use these dark cream cheek products - they're pretty scary to look at, so they don't sell very well and you can often find them on sale.
I have never been a big fan of cream cheek products, because I find that they don't last very well, but this has changed my opinion of cheek products, and I am very tempted to buy any of the three dark cream cheek shades by Illamasqua. This cream product gives the cheeks a lovely flush, and it lasts all day on the cheeks.

If you love a bold cheek colour, which I do - especially in cooler weather, I would recommend trying red cream cheek products. Before using this as a blush, I just bypassed dark blushes like this and never even bothered swatching them because they looked so intimidating... but now they are my newest blush obsession!
I even made a video demonstrating how I apply this! So watch the video if you want to see what it looks like on the cheeks.
