I have a make-up review for you today!
I am slowly becoming a fan of Topshop’s make-up range and currently pick up something new to try out when I pop in there. So far, I have been impressed and this blusher is no exception.
I bought this blusher at a very purse-friendly £6 in the shade Prime Time and like all Topshop make-up products, it comes in very pretty and simple packaging.
I love cream blushers. I prefer the application and finish to powder blushers and I also love the fact that you can apply and blend them with your fingertips which is great if, like me, you feel like you are short on time most mornings! Topshop have even added a mirror to this blusher to help with application on the go.
Now I know what you are probably thinking about the colour and yes it is a very vibrant hot pink! However, one of the reasons I love this product is that it is so great for gradually building up colour so you can choose to have a light pink flush to your cheeks right up to a bright Barbie pink look.
Here it is swatched on the back of my hand so hopefully you can see the difference in the colour you can achieve.
I have been wearing a light wash of this across my cheeks and have found it really suits my skin tone. It is very well pigmented so a little goes a very long way and lasts throughout the day.
The formula of this is lovely too. Described as a ‘cream powder’, this blusher is soft and creamy in the pan and also upon application but it dries with a smooth, powder-like finish so you kind of get the best of both worlds depending if you are a cream or powder blusher fan.
I have noticed a few gorgeous coral and orangey shades in this range and after trying this hot pink, I am keen to try some more…any other Topshop make-up recommendations whilst I am there?!
