Hey girlies. For the past couple of weeks I’ve found myself reaching for Topshop’s ‘Flush’ cream blush as part of my everyday make-up routine. I always seem to go through fazes of blush-lovin’ – I’ll use something constantly for a week or two, then find something else in my stash which takes my fancy and start using that instead. As I’ve been enjoying ‘Flush’ so much (especially with a bit of ‘Pearl’ cream colour base sweeped over the top) I decided that I needed another Topshop cream blush in my make-up collection. I went shopping on Tuesday to buy my boyfriends birthday presents, which gave me the perfect opportunity to make a quick pit-stop in Topshop and pick up another blush. I ended up choosing ‘Head over Heels’ which is a gorgeous peachy pink toned blush.
The packaging is compact and sturdy, with the typically Topshop simple, scruffy polka-dot design on the top. With the packaging being white you’d imagine it would get dirty really easily, but surprisingly my black NARS packaging ends up looking a lot more dirty! It includes a generous size mirror which is perfect for on-the-go touch-ups throughout the day. The formulation of Topshop’s cream blushes are completely different to MAC and the NYX blushes I’ve tried. In the pan they a cream consistency and glide onto the skin in exactly the same way, yet dry to a matte and slightly powdery finish. Although it dries matte, as a cream it blends into the skin beautifully and seamlessly and still leaves a healthy, glowing complexion behind. They can be applied simply with fingertips or with a brush (my personal favourite being Sigma’s F55 – I find duo fibre brushes work perfectly with cream blushes.)
Topshop cream blushes are without a doubt my favourite ‘drugstore’/highstreet blushes out there. I can’t even single out anything about them I don’tlike about them. They have a lovely selection of shades, the packaging is cute and compact and they only cost £6 (whereas a MAC cremeblend blush will set you back a whopping £17.50!)
