I do realize that I have been writing more about makeup than usual lately, and I hope my fellow skincare fanatics do not mind too much. I told you that after my car accident I have been looking and feeling pretty awful. My skin looks dehydrated, stressed, and I have been reaching for color more than usual. In fact, I am not a bright blush type of gal at all and I would rather wear bronzer over blush on any given day. However, as I mentioned in my last weekend post, I have been reaching for this cream blush from La Bella Figura in Just Jenna* almost every day because it is a very brightening color and it has added that healthy flush to my cheeks that I needed.

Just Jenna is described as an orchid pink, but as bright as it looks in the pot (and in the swatch on my arm), it actually turns into a more rosey pink color on the cheeks. I thought that this color would not suit me too well, but from the first time I applied it on my lips, I loved it. However, I did not wear it on my cheeks much and I instead used it on my lips very often. On lips it looks more bright and the color reminds me of the Ilia Beauty Lipstick in Around The World. It has a bit of a blue tone to it. It’s vibrant, but wearable.

Due to the natural oils and butters in it, the product solidifies, so warmth is necessary before the application in order to soften it. Once it is warm, the texture becomes easy to work with. I swirl my finger (I use my ring finger) to warm up the product (for as long as needed, maybe 10 sec), I pick some product, dab it on my cheeks, then I use a clean finger to blend. I find that it lasts very well on my cheeks, while it needs to be re-applied after drinking/eating on lips (possibly because it is a blush, not a lipstick). I do not typically have any issues with cream blushes fading on my skin, because my cheek area is not oily, and this blush is no exception.

Aside from the pretty color and the good wearing, I love the ingredients in this blush. It includes several great plant oils like Camellia, Sunflower, Barbary Fig, and Avocado, and no Coconut oil (can I get an amen!). I was also pleased to see Cupuaçu butter in this list, which is not well-known (yet, in my humble opinion), but it is a luxurious, beneficial ingredient for the skin. It is especially good for dry and damaged skin due to the high content of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and fatty acids and due to its water-retention capacity. Not sure which ingredients are responsible for the pleasant scent, but it also contains some fruit oils and flower extracts like Açai oil and Rooibos.

The only thing I did not love about this blush is actually the packaging. Very pretty looking, but I wish it was a bit more sturdy (even though it survived my clumsy hands…). However, I just read a few days ago that La Bella Figura is changing some of their packaging soon, so I am excited about that and plan to try more colors.

    Gorgeous colour on the lips and cheeks, you look so bright. I hope you get better soon!

    • Thank you love! I am doing much better :) I even drove two days ago! I thought I would have never had the courage to drive again… Thanks for reading! :)

  • I’m loving that colour, so brightening. It really suits your complexion! :)

    • Victoria and Karen

      It’s a lovely shade that can be as light or dark as you’d like if you layer it. Would suit most complexions too. :)

  • Victoria and Karen

    Thank you Lilly for your review and love of our creme blush in Just Jenna. It looks absolutely smashing on you and we like that you use it as lip color too. We appreciate you noting the distingusihing ingredients like cupuacu and marfura butter which we can’t get enough of on our skin because they are nourishing, non-greasy and completely beautiful in makeup formulations. You’ll be seeing more of those ingredients in future products from us. We made a very conscious decision not to add beeswax or coconut oil because although amazing ingredients and we love them, in makeup which we wear on our skin all day long and often reapply they can be a bit clogging and we want our skin to naturally detoxify even when wearing makeup. We’re happy to provide another option for those that have sensitive or congested skin or acne prone types that can’t use coconut oil or beeswax based makeup.

    You’re right that we’re repacking the entire LBF line and that includes the makeup! Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been burning the midnight oil on. Hope you try the new colors we have lined up for release in Spring. I think you’ll love Disco Queen Gloria, which will be added after so many beauties requested it after we sold out during the holidays. It will look stunning on you.

    Grazie Bella! xo-Victoria

  • Oh pretty! This is really flattering on you and I love the ingredients! Fig + avocado oil, rooibos…hello! Have a lovely weekend Lilly.

    • Thank you Lauren, have a lovely weekend as well :)

  • You should definitely wear more bright blushes! You look absolutely radiant.

  • Tina

    Yes I remember reading about that too! And he really had a good point and I think beauty lines should be open to receiving the good with the bad… the way they handled it really left me with no words..

  • Hi Lyd, thanks for sharing your feelings on the matter. Greenderm knows I love his work and respect him as a person. In light of my experiences with Green Companies I have decided to review any product, regardless of the company, as long as I feel that it could be helpful. In fact, I have not had good experiences with several of the companies that I feature the most. I have been lied to and disrespected as well (not by La Bella Figura btw), but I still feature their products if I think that I can make a helpful review, and I still buy from them if I enjoy the products. At the end of the day, what matters the most to me is that everyone who comes here finds products that work well for them, as I review the products and not the people who make them.

    I want Genuine Glow to be a place where everyone can dialogue about green beauty in a respectful way, so thank you for expressing your feelings in such a manner.

  • Victoria and Karen

    Thank you Tania! We hope you give it a try and look forward to launching more beautiful colors soon. :)

  • Victoria and Karen

    Hope you stay tuned Katherine as we release some beautiful summer colors later this Spring. Our makeup is very light and feels incredible when applied. In fact you almost forget you’re wearing makeup!

  • Oh no! I am sorry to hear that your skin did not agree with it. I have pretty finicky skin, so I know how that feels! Have you found any blushes that work well for you? If so, do you mind sharing? Thank you!

  • This is a gorgeous color! I’ve been lusting over the La Bella Figura More Than Makeup range for sure.

  • Nic Gustafsson

    Oh my goodness, completely missed this about you being in an accident! I hope you’re ok lovely and good for you that you got back to driving so quickly again. Take care of yourself! Xx

  • Dawn

    I’d have to agree about not supporting this brand. You look amazing but LBF has shown their true colors in this community and has been super disrespectful to a number of bloggers. I wouldn’t ever buy their stuff.

  • Miss Bb

    Hi Lilly, what lipstick are you wearing in this post? or is it the blush used as lipstick?
    Thanks!
    Bb

    • gigi

      I second this! It’s a beautiful color.
