When I first saw the three makeup products that Kjaer Weis launched a little over a week ago, I thought that the cream blush in the shade Embrace* would have not easily found a place in my makeup routine. Described as a nude-pink with a blue tone to it, I did not expect it to work well on my Mediterranean complexion because it looked like a pale pink. Instead, it turned out to be my favorite one, and I have been reaching for it on a daily basis.

The consistency of Embrace appears to be slightly creamier than my other Kjaer Weis cream blushes, so it is very easy to work with. I just swirl my ring finger in the product, and then proceed with the application. The pigmentation is great, so a few dots on each cheek, carefully blended, provide more than enough color. This is why, even though the color is a nude-pink and looks quite pale in the pot, it actually looks very vibrant on the skin. Being very creamy, this blush blends seamlessly and gives a beautiful flush of baby pink color that makes my skin look healthy and luminous. No dewy, greasy, overly-sheen finish. It is very similar to the finish of the Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation (I am wearing the shade Illusion), which is a satin, luminous finish. I am also extremely pleased with the wearing time of this blush, as it tends to stay on my cheeks all day (up to 8 hours), without slipping around.

As I wrote above, Embrace is a pinky-nude color with a blue undertone, and surprisingly, it is very flattering even on my light/medium, yellow skin. I either apply a tiny amount for a subtle nude color, or I build it up to a more intense baby pink, (like in the first photo).  It works great when used in combination with the Kjaer Weis Highlighter Radiance that I showed you last week, because the the two shades compliment each other beautifully, creating the perfect glowing, pink flush. I also love to dab a little Embrace on my lips, (after applying a non-greasy lip moisturizer) to get a very soft, pink color on my lips, (as I am wearing it in this photo).

If you do not own any Kjaer Weis Cream Blushes yet, you should definitely try them. The colors are gorgeous, the formula is brilliant, the finish is universally flattering, and the packaging is the most glamorous I have seen. You cannot go wrong with the shades: Embrace, for a pretty pink flush; Desired Glow, for a sun-kissed, honey bronze glow; or Abundance, which doubles as a contour product.

This cream blush is currently available here.

    This blush is stunning! Really fresh and flattering shade! Looking at the package I would not think that it looked so beautiful and radiant on the face!


  • Simply lovely!

  • I was cautious to try this on my warmer skin tone as it seemed to be more suited for pale, cool complexions. But on you it looks gorgeous. It exudes a youthful innonence and feminity which is so adorable. Thanks for sharing!

  • This looks gorgeous, I wonder whether it’d show up on my skin though…

    find me on 9outoften.com

  • I am loving all the Kjaer Weis posts, I think I’m going to get a sample of this and the luminizer–both products seem amazing! Might have to try some of their eyeshadow too…

  • Chloe

    omg! thank you so much for sharing! i have very ghostly neutral skin (the East Asian in me) and a lot of natural cream blushes are so dark it’s too intense for me. ilia’s tenderly is a must have for me, and now i’d like to give embrace a try.

    I love reading your posts. I am always amazing at how many people that have olive/yellow skin tones are not aware of whether or they have blue vs yellow undertones. To my educated eye you are so obviously cool or blue based in your coloring that for me it’s a big “of course” this pink/blue based beauty ally would look amazing on your skin! I’ve been assisting people with understanding their skin tones for over 30 years and the fact that olive skinned folks are so often put into a warm category never ceases to amaze me. Not to mention all the walking tragedies of “bronzer” on said coloring! There is little more critical to making enhancing color choices of any sort than understanding your skin-tones…. from blush to the sheets you are lying on………. it makes all the difference.

  • Oh my gaaaahd, you are a vision! I love this blush on you! It’s been a while since I’ve worn a baby pink blush, but I do appreciate its brightening abilities even on my tanned skin. :)

  • Boho Rush

    The colour actually looks delicious that it makes me want to eat it! It works really well with your skin tone xx

    I love kjaer weis blushes and was waiting for natural brands to come out with more nude shades. This looks lovely on you, but I wish it would be a bit of a warmer/peachier nude…. Maybe it’ll be launched next though?!

  • Oh my god, this is gorgeous. Embrace looks freakin’ amazing on you, Lilly!

  • Alyssa Nett

    have you ever tried RMS demure, or ilia’s tenderly? I’m curious as to how they would compare to this color. It looks beautiful but i didn’t have as much luck with staying power with KW. Is there a trick to help it last longer?

  • OH WOW. I love the your FACE. LOL creepy. But you know I do ;) Also, the texture of the cream blush looks delightful. I would definitely not be able to wear that shade as gorgeously as you do, so I’ll just appreciate it on you :) LOL!
