Cream of the Crop!

Whilst tidying up my make-up, I looked over at my blush collection and realised that my powdered beauties were looking sad and unloved in the corner as I have been reaching for something creamier to sport on my cheeks. I dabble in different brands when it comes to cream blushers and have found that so many brands do great quality cream blushers however these are my top drugstore picks for when it comes to a dewier flush on the cheeks.
Stila Convertable Colour £16 - Peony - Stile Convertable Colours are marketed for lips and cheeks. They come in an array of colours, one for every preference and every skin tone! Peony is quite a neutral shade, a brown-pink I would say. I love this for when I am doing a more dramatic eye and don't want the rest of my make-up to compete yet want to keep it looking fresh and dewy. I imagine this colour would pull a little more pink on paler skins and would look amazing! As this shade is quite neutral I don't seem to reach for it much however I may have to purchase the orange shade Gladiola to get more Convertable Colour loving going on.

Topshop Cream Blush £6 - Head Over Heels - Topshop Cream Blushers are a cream-to-powder formula and are a little less dewy on the skin. The shade Head Over Heels is a stunning coral shade which is perfect for the summer, matched with a coral lip! Topshop Cream Blushers are great for first time cream blush users as they are super easy to blend due to their powdery texture.

Bourjois Cream Blush £7.99 - 03 Rose Tender - A new release for Bourjois are the Cream blushers which come in 4 shades, I have the shade 03 tender rose which is a soft dolly-pink. I would say it sits in between a powdery and cream finish as it is neither of the two. This is a great shade for pink lovers or for brightening up the face, great for the summer to add a little bit of a flirty colour to the cheeks.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush £6.99 - Soft Pink - Now this blush is marketed as a blush however I would say that this works brilliantly on the cheeks and on the lips. It is quite high shine so is definitely one for the dewy glow lovers. Soft pink is a bright, yet still soft pink! It can be sheered out to give a natural glow or layered to build up more intensity. This again is a great brightening shade as it really does give a natural flush to the skin.
