shu uemura Creamy Dome Blusher in Fairy Pink - review and swatches

I've been having a good run with shu uemura recently. I've rediscovered two of their palettes, and have been using a blush from one of them almost everyday. Their new Creamy Dome Blusher in Fairy Pink is a pretty darn close match for the pink pressed powder I've been using, with a rather delicate peach tone than an overt PINK! GIRLS WEAR PINK! shade so I was keen to see how it translated as a cream. Also, how cute is the little white dome with its clear lid? It looks like a fairy observatory! 

Bottom is blush applied directly from dome...thingy, top swatch is worked in with fingers
On skin, it smooths in very well, no pilling over my tinted moisturiser, or streaks. It sets into a powder after a few minutes on skin, which is my preferred kind of cream make-up as I find it lasts longer and I'm less likely to streak it all over my forehead the next time I scratch my face. Like, I did this last week and only found out I had three coral finger prints dotted on my forehead when I got home and my boyfriend thought they were Doritos dust (which is somehow more understandable to him). Thanks, people in office! Def not 'a new young people trend' like claimed by me the next day!

Here I've applied directly to the apples of my cheeks, then blended in with fingertips, no need for a brush with this baby. I'll be chucking it into my handbag for when I have to get ready for the gym or touch-ups during the day as the formula means no cracking and covering my wallet with a layer of pink powder. You can twist the top to roll up more product (there's 8.5g in here).

It's part of shu uemura Celestial Garden Spring/Summer 2012 collection, and also comes in a orange/peach shade to that I'm dying to try. They both retail for A$48 at David Jones. I have a green polish and eyes palette from the same season, swatches to come soon!
