It was one of those days, when I had logged off of work and I just wanted to watch random videos on YT. I don’t subscribe to influencer channels but I stumbled upon Jaime Paige’s video on drugstore makeup and I was highly inspired by her to purchase a quo blush – the Featherweight Cream Blush. The closest Shopper’s, disappointingly, had only the red colored blush called “Dreamy 73” in stock. I was a bit apprehensive about how bright it was but decided to try it nonetheless.
Now, I’m one of those people who love trying new makeup as soon as I purchase it. So I did. And here are my thoughts:
- Let’s begin with my apprehensions about the color; they were warranted. The color is so bright that it can go from a lovely flush to clown makeup. But I persisted and made it work
- The color was a bit patchy on makeup free skin but blended out well on foundation. I would moisturize before using the product so that it doesn’t cling to dry patches
- For this formula, I wouldn’t use a brush. I used my fingers and that gave me more control. I guess you could try a sponge too
- This color (dreamy) would look stunning on tan to dark skin
- The packaging sucks! The tube oozes product if you don’t put back the cap immediately. The tube gets dirty and sticky because of this
- Price-wise, it’s not a high-end blush but it’s on the higher end of drugstore. At $14 each, it’s priced higher than essence (at around $5) and elf (at $8), but costs as much as Physicians Formula

Here’s the bottomline though: I now get the hype about the Glossier Cloud Paint. If this product is a true dupe for the cloud paint, then I get it. It looks stunning on the face; it looks like a flush emanating from within and has a bit of sheen. It’s not a glowy blush but it’s not matte either. I would probably pick up a lighter color like Angelic or Halo (lighter pinks).

My verdict: I Love it. I’ll be picking up a lighter color for winter.
