When the cream blush craze started, I didn't really get it. I didn't understand how they could be any better than normal powder blushes?! Silly, silly Rachael. Cream blushes are the shizz! I first branched into them with a lovely coral Topshop blush, and have slowly developed an addiction.
My latest favourite cream blush is from No7, I picked it up during the Boots 3-for-2 offer, and there was also a £5 No7 voucher..winner winner.
Apart from skincare, i've never really tried anything from the No7 range. On a recent Boots browse *one of many*, I just thought i'd have a little snoop at the latest release and as soon as I saw these Pop and Glow Cream Blush Stick I knew I had to have one! I swatched the shade Pink Blossom on the back of my hand and was fell in love instantly.
Pink Blossom is a gorgeous pink shade, which leaves my cheeks looking naturally flushed. It is perfect for Spring and i've worn it almost everyday since buying it.
When you first apply it, it looks kinda neon pink scary, but once blended in it's just gorgeous.
The formula is obviously cream but once applied to the skin it goes to a powder, which helps to set the blusher for hours. It is so easy to apply and blend, I tend to dab some on the apples of my cheeks, then blend it in using the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. I love that even though it is a powder formula once applied to the cheeks, it still leaves my cheeks looking glowing and fresh.
I also swatched the highlighter which was amazing, i'll definitely be picking this up soon. It was a gorgeous subtle pink, nude with a shimmer. It is the perfect highlight for Summer.
