Cream Blushes for Spring

Hello and a hearty good afternoon to you! Today I'm going to be talking about a few cream blushes that I am looking forward to wearing again in Spring. There aren't any new products in this post, these are tried and tested blushes that I know I love. 

The first is this Revlon one which looks 50 shades of cray in the pot but it's the nicest coral colour when its on the cheeks. It's a definite spring colour and paired with a coral lip it creates a really fresh faced look that makes you just want to stand in direct sunlight and look glowy and dewy and happy. I need to calm down. It's quite hard in texture in that you have to work it a bit to loosen it up enough to get any on your brush or your finger but once it warms up it's fine. I've actually got myself excited to wear it.

Topshop Cream Blush in Head Over Heels
Another coral colour but this time it's from Topshop and it looks much less frightening in the pot but creates a very similar colour to the Revlon Photoready cream blush. Its more of a true coral while the Revlon one is slightly more orange. In terms of the texture it is very creamy as in 'I've accidentally stuck my finger straight through it on numerous occasions' creamy. However I think I prefer this because it means it's easier to blend in and I'm less likely to move my foundation around trying to make it look natural.

Moving on to my wild card of the bunch. At around £4 this is easily the cheapest of the three blushers I've featured in this post which is always a plus. It's also the only pink I've featured. I do have other pink cream blushes but this is my favourite because its so pretty and fresh looking and the most 'spring' like. The texture is somewhere between the two other blushes. It's not as creamy as Topshop's Head Over Heels but it also doesn't take as much work as Revlon's Coral Reef. This is the only product I have from the Accessorize makeup line (which can be found in Superdrug) but I'm really pleased with it.

Quick mention of Rimmel's Stay Blushed in Sunkissed Cherry and No.7's Pop & Glow Cream Blush in Rose Blossom because I think I'll be getting a lot of use of out those as well in the coming months. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading! Lots of love, Annie xxx
