Butterfly

Coloured Raine Butterfly Cream Blush ($16.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented where a little went a very, very long way. The texture was overly soft–it felt like it had already melted in the sun, but it felt that way even upon opening after being in 70-degree temperatures overnight. (It’s not even sizzling here, as it IS winter at the time of testing!)

I would not recommend using fingertips as they displaced product readily, picked up a ridiculous amount of product when one needed the most minute amount of product to get high coverage with the formula. It dried down in about ten seconds to a mostly matte finish. When I used a fluffy, synthetic brush, I was able to apply and diffuse the product without much effort, but it played better with less matte/less dry skin. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$16.00 -

The formula didn't have a lot of claims, only that it is supposed to be a "silky cream" texture that "helps moisturize the skin" with "the right amount of color." The texture was incredibly creamy; it felt like it was half-melted from the sun, because any pressure caused the product to displace quite a bit.

I'd highly recommend using a fluffy, synthetic brush and a feathery hand to pick up product, which was enough pressure to pick up more than enough product as they were intensely pigmented.

Worth noting: after the initial release of four shades, the brand released two additional shades in a smaller format, and they were significantly less creamy, thick, and had a thinner, lightly emollient texture that took longer to dry down and were not quite as pigmented (but still quite pigmented overall--I just didn't have to use the gentlest touch to grab product like the original shades).

Despite being one of the creamiest formulas I've come across in the cream blush realm, it had a full dry down to a more "natural" matte finish--not totally flat but not dewy at all. The blushes applied fairly well to bare skin and on top of foundation, but I found fingertips were more prone to lifting up base products with this formula.

They wore around eight hours on me before fading visibly.

Because I do still have my old UD Bittersweet Afterglow blush, and because you had it as a possible dupe, I compared both arm and face swatches and then realized that they are dupes. Not super close, because Bittersweet isn’t quite as bright and is a warmer tone of purple, but I love Butterfly for summer just for the brightness factor!

Oh wow the colour looks really good on your skin. I initially got attracted to the purple, then looking on the swatch & now on your cheek, I really like it. Thanks for sharing your thought on this product! I want this now!
