This review is long overdue and focuses mainly on a Topshop Cream Blush (£7.00) in the shade Morning Dew. Topshop Make Up never fails to impress me and I am still yet to find a person who doesn't find their products amazing quality for such an alarmingly, affordable price. Admittedly, I picked this product up on a whim and was sucked in to the sale when I saw it was paired with a bold lippy and a neon green cosmetics case. I needed neither case nor bright, vibrant, if ever-so-slightly unwearable lipstick but I was in the midst of a shopping addiction and this was no exception. I was hesitant to use this blush at first when I discovered it was cream. Cream blushers have never really been my forte as I find them difficult to apply, hard to blend and just end up looking slightly clown-ish. This resulted in the petite, polka-dot, packaged product being stored right at the back of the draw, behind all my powdered blushers.
Eventually, I plucked up the courage and after scouring website after website, blog after blog, I discovered there was one neighbouring item that will come as the answer to my prayers. The Real Techniques Stippling Brush. (Don't worry, this hasn't turned into a review on a brush but do watch this space because I will be posting a full review on all my cosmetic brushes very soon!) The Stippling Brush applies and blends cream products like no other and once using this with the blusher I fell in love. For good. This has now quickly become one of my most used blushers all the way through March and still consistently in April. I don't know if it's the amazing pigmentation that does it for me or the beautiful coral, pink hue or the really fine specks of gold that look non existent in the pan but create a subtle sun-kissed glow once applied. Not to mention the long lasting power that ensures that even after a good six to eight hours, I will still have a pretty flush of colour on my cheeks. Don't worry, I know the shade looks scary in the pan but with its cream to powder formula, the blush appears subtle but pretty after application. After this product has impressed me so much, I can pretty much promise now that once my spending ban is over, I will be purchasing one in every shade, just to complete the collection.
All in all, an amazing product that has completely changed my opinions on Cream Blushers for good.
