A place to share my two loves: beauty and food.

My favourite cream blushes

Although my obsession with the Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush is definitely not over (read why here) I have been opting for my cream blushes more and more now the weather has started to change. Does anyone else find that once the tan has faded and the sun rays become rather pathetic then their skin begins to look rather lacklustre? I have been reaching for these two all summer but recently even more so as I want to keep the dewiness in my skin. And yes I am aware that the two are very similar.

Topshop Cream Blush in Head over Heels £7

The formula of this is incredibly soft and buttery. It melts into your skin leaving a gorgeous natural flush. I have repurchased this light pink numerous times and it is the perfect size to keep in your makeup bag. Plus the mirror makes it incredibly useful! 

Revlon Photoready in Coral Reef £7.99

Although this does look a little scary in the pan, it actually applies quite sheer and blends out easily into a natural healthy glow that is a little more coral than the Topshop offering. The formula is slightly different too as it isn't quite as soft, although this does mean it lasts a very long time. I have been using this on an off for a year now and I have hardly made a dent (the pictures above prove this point). I all think this has better longevity than the Topshop Blush even though I tend to reach for the latter more! 

Box is Oliver Bonas, see here, in case anyone is wondering! I got mine in the sale so keep your eyes peeled as it could go back in.
