You'd never know it, but I used to hate blush. I refused to wear it, and would look rather pale with my foundation and occasional use of bronzer and that's only if I was feeling it that day. Looking back, I cringe and weep a little for the rather uninformed girl I used to be. A few years later, a lot of makeup videos and lusting after some rather expensive products and I have myself a fairly respectable collection of blushes.
Cream blush is something I've latched onto with both hands and revolutionised the way I apply makeup. I thought I'd share a selection of my favourites that leave me with a peachy flushed smile every time.
First up, a product that I don't think I've stopped gushing about since I purchased it last month is Bourjois' Cream Blush in Healthy Glow, £7.99. It's slightly more orange than it's sister Nude Velvet, but leaves the cheeks with a real pearly finish that I just can't beat for everyday wear. If you're interested in what I have to say about the entire range I've written up an entire post about the Cream Blush launch.
Another product that makes my heart beat that little bit faster is Stila's Convertible Colour in Gerbera, £16.00. I find myself reaching for this time and time again as it's ideal for carrying around due to it's multipurpose use and large mirror. The colour reminds me of Illamasqua's Androgen Pigment but in a handier compact.
Last, but by no means least, is a little gem that was recommended to me by my mother. Seeing this beautiful colour on her cheeks prompted me to invest in Accessorise Cream Blush in Rose, £4.00. Not only is this a hugely affordable item, but has opened up my eyes to the makeup range by Accessorise in general. Highly pigmented and with massive staying power, I can't praise it enough. At the price, it's definitely worth the investment.
Do you have any peach blushes that you can't live without?
