Being a rather pale lady with a zombie like complexion and no idea on how to apply bronzer without looking like an umpa lumpa, blush is pretty much the only option I have at brightening up my face.
My love affair with blush has been going for a very long time now, with powder bushes being the only thing I ever used up until about 12 months ago. Whilst powder blushes do the job at hand my obsession and collection of cream blushes has done nothing but grown and lately I've been using nothing else!
All I want from a blush is a good, pigmented formula with a strong staying power. It needs to be easy to use, easy to blend and give a gorgeous flattering finish.
Cream blushers tick all these boxes for me. A couple f dabs with my fingertips across my cheeks is all it takes to create a glowing complexion. Here's a round up of my favourite ones.
Look Beauty Fresh Cheeks - This is what started me off with my cream blush obsession. One touch with a brush is all you need to get the perfect amount of colour. This semi-matt finish creates a gorgeous healthy glow.
Next up, the Bourjois Cream Blush. This formula is a cream to powder finish - on the cheeks you really can't tell it was a cream blush, but it has all the pigmentation and staying power of one.
The Balm How about them apples cream blush is one of my favourite samples from Birchbox. A multifunctional product which can be used on cheeks and lips and its great on both! This little pan really packs a punch with pigmentation. I'm soo gutted I'm nearly at the bottom of the pan! I'll have to purchase the full size palette when I finish this!
The Boots No 7 Pop and Glow sticks are great for on the go application. It's bullet shaped applicator means you just swipe it across your cheeks, blend and go! No contamination of the product either! Bonus!
And last, but by no means lease is the most recent addition to my collection - Stila Convertible Colours. These beauties give a gorgeous dewy finish to the skin and look as good on the cheeks as they do on the lips! Perfection.
I'm not the only one in love with cream blush, am I?
What should I buy next?
