Topshop Makeup | Blush





Topshop Blush £6 


Next in the Topshop Makeup Series, I want to go over the blushers. These are not my favourite thing in the Topshop makeup range, although I know plenty of people who would say they were. I just want to start with the packaging, I absolutely love it, like all other Topshop makeup items, it has the adorable black sketching, in this case, polka dots. The only thing I will say, is that after a while, the white background becomes a little more cream, and then there's no going back to that lovely white crisp casing, dangnabbit. 

The consistency of these is what makes them a little different from anything else I own, and certainly anything else I have seen on the High Street. They apply as a cream blush, but dry with a more powdery finish. I actually find powder blush easier to apply, as you just apply it with a brush, however, I do like to use these for a much more subtle finish. I think because it applies as a cream and dries to a powder, it gives a much more natural flush than a powder would. I also don't find it that difficult to apply. I just use my fingers, and dot it on my cheekbones or the apples of my cheeks (depending on which mood i'm in) and then blend it out as much as desired. The colours can look a little scary in the pan, but they are very easy to blend, and you can also build up the colour if you want something a little more opaque. They also have quite good lasting power, I wouldn't say it's amazing, but for £6 you can't really expect miracles (plus, you don't want to look like Aunt Sally for over 24 hours).

The colours I own are Head Over Heels (pictured on the left in all photos) and Flush (pictured on the right). Head over heels is my favourite (as you can see it has been used a fair bit...and looks pretty grubby). It's a gorgeous coral pink and I find that this suits my skin tone a little more than Flush, which is a lot more pink. 

What do you think of Topshop blush? Do you own any?

  9. I saw these in the store yesterday, that packaging is cute but I am not sure I would go for those colours as they do look super scary in the pan! Might be worth a try though as they are only £6!

  11. I have quite a few and I always get quite excited when they come out with new one. (quite sad I suppose) but Prime Time and Neon rose are my faves definitely. I actually apply them before foundation and just buff over them so I get that 'glowing from within' type thingybob that just looks so good! xx

  12. I love the packaging design and the texture even more! I'm so afraid that the products arent available in germany

  13. I look at the Topshop blushes whenever I'm in the shop but always last minute decide on not getting them. Head over heels looks so lovely though, I think I'll end up buying it when I see it next!

  14. Really gorgeous colours, I just would like more organic ones though :)

  15. I really want to try these but I suck with cream blush!! XO

  16. i really love flush, i think it is so pretty. I like topshop blushes but to be honest i kind of wish they would stay a bit creamy and look more dewy.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I own 2 of the Topshop Powder Blushers in "Pop" and "Powdered" and I'm bloody loving them! They are very reminiscent of the finish you get from Mac blushers (but a lot cheaper) I recommend them highly!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Those 2 colours are the only 2 Topshop blushers I own, and whilst I do like them, I very rarely reach for them when doing my make up. I've actually used Flush on my lips for a few nights out with a coat of gloss on top (it is quite a dry formula so you need something on top)! X

  26. i have neon rose and love it! I apply it with a flat foundation brush, I find it much easier to get an even colour and my fingers dont get all pink and grubby :)

  27. I'm not sure how cream blushes would sit on my skin as it gets oily.. I love the vibrancy of the colours though!

  33. I've never tried makeup from Topshop before (surprising because I am a major Topshop addict) but it seems like a good investment. I absolutely love the consistency of cream blushes, so I'll definitely check it out. (: The packaging is adorable!
    By the way - the brushes at Louella seem really nice! Will purchase something in the future as soon as my wallet becomes full again. (;

  59. wow I love the colour flush. I have heard do many people rave about top shop makeup and you always seem to talk about it and love it too, I'm really keen to try some next time I go into topshop, I really hope the Australian store have it as there is only currently one in the country :)I can also see why flush suits your skin tone more, its just so naturally and mid rgound between peach and pink xx

  60. The first thing I tried out of the Topshop makeup collection was a blusher, I loved it and ended up buying about 3 but I found that I got through them so quickly it was more cost effective to buy something bigger from Nars or MAC. Wish they'd make them in a bigger size so it'd last longer :( the colours you have are beautiful though x

  61. i do wanna try one of the blushers :) only problem is that i live in norway, and we don't have topshop here... both sweden and uk has it so it's quite sad how far behind we are, haha... but i'm going to london in only a few days, so i'll see if i can pick one up ;D

  62. Head over heals is my all-time favourite Topshop blusher, it's gorgeous & so cheep :-)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've never bought myself a cream blush because I never really knew how to properly put it on, but I guess using your fingers makes sense. Head Over Heels is such a cute blush color, a great summer shade that's for sure.

  79. Head Over Heels is really pretty. I'm also a big fan of corals, whether on cheeks, lips or nails. Will have to give this one a go. I do have a Topshop blush, but it was an'accidenta' purchase, as I was looking for a corally shade and picked up the wrong box! I ended up wth 'Powdered', which looks waaay too bright pink for me at first glance, but does, fortunately, look nice on, as long as I'm not too heavy handed with it.

  84. Always a little skeptical with cream blushes! The colours are lovely but the product itself looks a bit streaky on me, maybe I haven't blended it enough or something. I might try different ones! I agree with you though all Topshop packaging is the cutest! :)

  107. I used to use the Topshop blushes but wasn't that keen. They didn't sit very well on my skin. Kind of went a bit blotchy and I ended up resembling a three year old who got a bit adventurous with her mum's make up bag!

    I use the Sleek Blush by 3 palette now, in lace, which I saw on your vlog the other day!

  110. I have been looking for a great bright pink blush but all the ones I've tried haven't worked out. This Topshop one looks like it might be a good option considering it's creamy but dries powdery and you only need a little bit. Did the bright pink hue that's pictured come out nice or a bit too bright? I'm always nervous it looks too unnatural! I like the blushes you wear in a lot of your videos so what do you think your favorite is at the moment?

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'm really interested in trying out cream blushes but was a bit afraid of the consistency to really go out and give the a go. However, because of the interesting consistency of Topshop blushes, I think it'll be easier to work with them, especially as the colour does sheer out!
    Flushed looks like the perfect shade to start with! :D

    ReplyDelete
  116. I think they must have changed the colour of Flush as mine is a lot lighter pink than yours. Mystifying! Great post though :) x

    ReplyDelete
  117. I purchased one of these for myself and for my best friend for her birthday, she said it worked wonderfully on her but I just can't seem to make it look good on my skin! Whether I'm applying too much/too little? Its a shame because the colours are GORGEOUS!
