My New Favourite Thing: Cream Blushes

Hey Lovelies,

I’ve lost count the times that I’ve said that I don’t ‘get’ cream blushes, I didn’t understand how they worked, how to apply and generally thought they weren’t for me. Well I used to think like this, not anymore as I am now completely hooked on cream blushers. I’ve been having a bit of a make up change up lately, I’ve seen myself turning towards a new dewy look at the moment and am always in the mood for trying new things. I was having a look through my un-loved make up and came across my three cream blushes from Topshop. I bought them last summer, used them a couple of times, didn’t get on very well with them and admitted defeat. I had a brainwave though that maybe using my Real Techniques Stippling Brush with them may work and well that was sometime last week and I’ve not looked back.

Swatches: Top to Bottom: Neon Rose, Flush, Head Over Heels 

The RT stippling brush working amazingly well with the cream blushes, it picks the colour up and with a gentle dabbing motion the blush is applied effortlessly to my cheeks providing a flush of colour that compliments the more dewy look I’ve been rocking lately. I have three different Topshop Cream Blushers which are Flush ( a barbie/coral pink) Neon Rose ( a bright coral) and Head Over Heels ( a peachy pink) Head over Heels is of course my favourite, you all know how much I love my peach blushers and it completely goes with the usual tanned look that I like to sport. I find that these blushes work really well on the skin, they apply easily, though take a little at the time it’s easier to add more not take away less and they last for a few hours, but add a natural flush to the cheek. I’m so glad that I’ve finally found a brush to apply my cream blushes but now I’m finding myself craving more, especially one that’s more dewy as the Topshop blushes go from cream to powder. So if anyone has any recommendations for a cream blush in a peachy shade please let me know!!

I am loving cream blushes at the moment and think my RT stippling brush is easily one of the best brushes I’ve ever used 🙂 Do you love cream blushes?

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday 🙂
