Cream blushers – love them or hate them? Clearly looking at the above picture you are naturally led to believe I’m a fan, however cream blushers are my most unused beauty product. They sit perfectly at the back of my drawers, unassuming whilst gathering dust. So why do I own so many? Good question. You see the thought of a cream blush is rather appealing, a soft focused peachy pink blush that gives a natural finish when applied with either a brush or your fingers. Sounds good right? Unfortunately the reality can be quite different with these little pots delivering a messy application that at times can disturb or move your makeup underneath.
That being said, I keep getting lured in. The colours are gorgeous and applied to the back of my hand, application feels easy. Yet the reality results in me skipping over these cream blush offerings in favour of their powder counterparts. In a bid to streamline my stash more about that coming in Friday’s video! I put all my cream blushers into a pile to decide what could stay and what needs to go. Top picture – the collection that was. Second picture – what remains.
So what made the cut to live on within the keep pile? Firstly my two MAC cream blushers in Virgin Isle and Something Special. These are two nostalgia keeps but who knows, I might revive them in the Summer! I’ve got Stila’s Convertible Colour in Lillium which is just beautiful and also their Aqua Glow Water Colour Blush in Water Lily which is a formula I still haven’t managed to work out yet but know one day I’ll crack it. Finally there is my Laura Mercier Bonne Mine in Coral Glow which I will be keeping forever as it was used on my friends Wedding day by all the bridal party.
Are you a fan of cream blush? Do you buy them and use them or let them gather dust like I’ve tended to do!
