Topshop Cream Blush in Flush

I've been looking for a new blush for ages. All I've been using lately is my beloved Benefit's Posietint, but I wanted something more compact (like a palette). After a few reviews I've seen in the past, I decided to check out Topshop's make-up range. I must admit, although I'm an avid lover of Topshop, I hadn't tried any of their make-up, so I was really intrigued to see what all the fuss was about and if it lived up to my expectations. I chose their cream blush, in Flush...

At first glance, I thought the case was really cute. I love the polkadot rounded palette it's in, along with the mirror below the lid so you can apply it wherever you are. I always use two fingers to apply it on my cheeks, and found it was easy to blend. It did dry quite quickly though, so only use a small amount at first then build it up. I've ended up looking like a clown before, because it dried up quick.

Flush is a lovely pinky colour, not too bright and not too dark. It was the right shade for me to add a bit more colour to my face. I didn't want to use it too much as I wanted it for a more subtle daytime look.

I found that, after it dried quickly, it also dried out my skin a little bit. I have to make sure my skin is very moisturised before application, which feels like more trouble than it's worth. It does add plenty of colour, but doesn't last all day. You would have to reapply it throughout the day, which is disappointing. I'm not one to constantly redo my make-up all day. Once it's on, I like it to stay on! I'm in two minds whether to continue using it. Maybe cream-based make-up isn't right for me and I should go back to either liquid or powder.

Have you used any of Topshop's makeup range? What do you think?

Oh, a bit annoying you had to re-apply, I hate that! Currently looking for a new cream blush! I have a few products from the topshop make-up range and get on with it quite well :) Amazing blog by the way, following definitely! xoxo
