Today I thought I would talk to you about my current love affair with cream blushers.
Right now there are so many options to choose from. Once restricted to bulky pots, thanks to those more forward thinking makeup brands, this is no longer the case. Variety can be found in the form of sticks, crayons and squeezy tubes as well, making them a convenient choice for travel. Finally there is an answer to the annoyance of smashing you favourite powder blush in the bottom of your bag.
Here are a few of my current faves;
Makeup Revolution The One Blush Stick in Matte Rush – £5
This stuff is just awsome, it’s super pigmented and blends out beautifully. I just dot my cheeks with it straight from the tube, blend and I’m done.
A little bit really does go a long way. Whilst at home I like to use a stippling blush to blend, it works just as well though If you prefer to use your fingers. This and the convenient packaging makes this a brilliant choice for travel makeup.
MUA Luxe whipped velvet blush in Ritzy – £3
It’s also a bit of a steal, considering you get 4g of product for £3. This one comes in five different shades. Chichi a lovely Coral coloured blush is another shade that may find it’s way to me soon. Maybe??? We’ll see if I can resist.
E.L.F HD Blush in Showstopper –
This one i was a bit unsure about including, mainly due to the shut down of the UK branch of E.L.F. However I decided to go ahead as not all my readers are UK based. With a little bit of searching I have found this on EBay for £5.48 including postage for those UK readers.
I felt this one really was worth a mention, mainly as the shade is so unique. I’ll admit it looks really rather scary in the bottle, and does tend to over dispense which is annoying mainly as it’s wasteful. This is way too much product from one pump, and would leave you looking like violet from Charlie & the Chocolate factory if you used it all. Hmm Halloween idea maybe?
A teeny tiny amount of this is needed, as this is by far the most pigmented blush I have ever come across. I would suggest not using your fingers to blend out either as it will stain, as you can see I got in a right mess with it.
I love the unique berry tones flush it gives so this is one worth having a play with till you get it right. A little trick I found that works well, is to apply this before your foundation or BB cream. You will then be left with a lovely flush of colour peeping through, as I have done below. I loved this against my fair skin with a purple toned lip.
F.Y.I this is what it was like applied after foundation, not really my thing.
Have you tried any of these cream blushers? Do you have any recommendations of other cream blushers worth a try?
Bye for now, Katy 🙂
