My go to Blush for Spring

Hi guys, I hope you are really well! With Spring just around the corner I thought I would share with you the blusher that I will be using pretty much every day throughout Spring and have been using every day for the past couple of weeks. The blush I am talking about is the Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick in the shade Rosy Blush. I will just say, I think this particular one has been discontinued but the chubby sticks look very similar.

So as the name says this is a cream blusher and I have only really started using cream blushers in the past year or so as I always thought they would make my skin look greasy and oily but I was so wrong! This blush sit so nicely on my foundation and under powder, it gives me a really healthy glow which is perfect for any time of year but I definitely feel its a good look for Spring. Before using this blusher my usual blush, bronzer and highlighters were powder products and I noticed that my skin was getting a few dry patches which is why I decided to switch up my powder blush for this one and it has definitely helped with it being a cream product.

As I mentioned before I apply this after my foundation and then set everything in place with my usual powder and it just makes my cheeks pop with colour and gives them a nice rosy glow. It also lasts all day so there is no need to re-apply! I have a feeling that this product is going to last me a long, long time as a little goes a long way, a few dabs of this and you are good to go! It literally takes 3 seconds which is a bonus if, like me, you are always in a rush on a morning!

I am wearing this blush in the above picture and I just love it! It is so pigmented and such a shame that Clinique discontinued it. However, the Clinique Chubby Sticks look pretty similar and I am sure that Boots and Superdrug will have much more affordable cream blushers that do exactly the same thing!

Let me know in the comments what you think of cream blushers and if you haven’t tried them them I recommend giving them a go! I hope you enjoyed this post!

See you soon!

Stila Blush!

Hey guys, so as promised in my last post I am back to normal and this post is beauty related! It is so over due as I meant to write about this blush aaages ago! The blush I am talking about is the Stila Convertible Colour Dual Lip & Cheek Cream Blush in the shade Sweet Pea. This is the first cream blush I’ve ever tried. I picked this up as I was chatting to Jess from The Beauty Sanctuary about it, it also happened to be on sale at the time so before I knew it I had purchased it and a few days later it was part of my collection… oops! However, I am totally not sorry that I bought it as it is beautiful!

The packaging alone is super pretty as you can see. It’s in a nice compact case with a mirror so super easy to apply when you are out. I like to apply this straight after my foundation. I apply it with my finger and just pat the product onto my cheeks very lightly until I am happy with how it looks then go over with powder to set in place. You do have to be quite light handed otherwise you’ll end up with a sort of clown look going on. This is definitely the perfect blush if you like a natural, glowy look. It’s perfect for everyday as it lasts but would also be a good one for date night and any natural look.

I can’t remember how much I paid for this but I know it was on sale, I don’t think I paid more than £10.00 for it. They are currently £16.00 on the Stila website and Boots which isn’t too bad for a two in one product as this as can also be used on your lips too!
