Topshop Cream Blush in Flush

After hearing so many lovely things about Topshops cream blushes I decided to pick one up. This is my first cream blush purchase as I tend to lean more towards powders. The Topshop blush I picked up was in the shade Flush. I have to say I quite like the packaging of Topshop's beauty products. It's simple but very cute and girly. This compact blush also comes with a little mirror so it's really handy for on the go. 

On first impressions in the store I was slightly intimidated by the bright pink shade. BUT the minute I swatched it I knew I had to have it. It softens to a really beautiful blushing pink shade once blended into the skin. It's easy to blend it out on to the cheeks to create a really natural and subtle finish. It's also nice and buildable so you have the option of how bright you'd like the blush to be as it's very pigmented. 

{I've blended out the top swatch more to show how this blush can be blended out to become more subtle - depending on the look you're going for}
The texture is of course creamy, but once applied to the skin the texture almost resembles powder. The packaging says to "Dot on cheeks and blend". I normally just swirl my finger around into the blush then apply to my cheeks and blend out. I also buff it out a little with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush.

Unfortunately this blush doesn't have the best staying power, bit of a shame, but for the price tag of £6 and as it's easy to take with you and apply whilst on the go, I can let it slip. I also find that the packaging gets dirty fairly quickly, but it's easy to clean with a wet wipe if this does bother you. Despite this the packaging is pretty sturdy and the little polka dots haven't rubbed away or faded.

Overall, I have to say I really love this shade I think it's very flattering and I love that it's a cream blush so overall I'm pretty happy with this purchase. 

Have you tried any of the Topshop blushes or any other Topshop beauty products?
