When it comes to Topshop make up, I think they’ve got it pretty much sorted on all fronts. When brands take their name in to another venture it usually leaves me quite apprehensive (think celebrities and perfume) at what to expect but Topshop pretty much nailed it. They have a great variety of products and colours, the packaging is super cute and quirky and the products are fantastic with a budget friendly price point. I picked my favourite blushers (both cream and powder) for the Spring/Summer months from the range available. They all retail at £7.00 each which I think is pretty darn reasonable. Don’t you?
The cream blushers from Topshop are divine. They provide a lightweight cream to powder finish which literally melts in to the skin to leave behind a luminous, radiant finish which is ideal for Spring/Summer. The colours are utterly fabulous – they’re incredibly pigmented and blend like an absolute dream. These are perfect for a nice dewy finish to your make up. I like to use my fingers to dot the cream on to my cheek before I blend out with my Real Techniques stippling brush. The pop of colour that these add to your face is amazing. Both Let Her Go and Flush are really wearable shades and definitely my favourites of the cream blush bunch. The packaging of these Topshop cream blushers is so cute too – they come in a white circular compact (complete with mirror) with large polka dots on the lid.
I adore powder blushers, they’re definitely my favourite even though I do like to branch out to the creams during the warmer months. The colours can be quite limited with Topshop as they tend to just cover brighter pinks, corals and reds where as the powders have some slightly paler colour offerings and some mauve like shades too. The powder blushers contain light perfecting pigments to achieve a natural radiant glow. These little beauties are packed with pigmentation and they are incredibly vibrant so use a light hand guys. Do It Again is definitely a paler shade than I would usually go for but it adds the most gorgeous yet subtle colour to my cheeks with a slight shimmery highlight. The lasting power of both the cream and the powder blushers are pretty darn impressive – they lasted all day for me in a heavily air conditioned and humid office. The powder blushers come in a similar circular white compact (again complete with mirror) to the cream blush but with a speckled black pattern across the lid. This makes it easier to spot the difference between cream/powder when you reach in to your make up kit. It doesn’t help with the colour though so you’ll have to turn to the back for that.
