I love a cream blush. At work I would always choose to apply a cream blush over a powder one; it is so forgiving and incredibly flattering and not only do I incorporate it into most make-ups I do but also recommend it to pretty much anyone who asks.
There are times however when only a powder blush will do and in these cases I almost invariably find myself turning to my trusty Couleur Caramel Blush Powders (£18.50).
The blusher powder is miconised and so together with hydrating ingredients such as olive oil derived squalene and Shea butter, they feel great on the skin. They go on smoothly and even when built up, I haven’t experienced any caking.
The blushers currently available in four shades: Peach (#51), which is a matte peach; Fresh Pink (#52) – a light matte rose pink; Light Pink (#53) – a blue pink with a shimmer and Old Rose (#57) which is a matte rose tone. I have all four in my kit plus a number of discontinued shades too as you can see from my palette above.
The blushers a housed in small kraft envelopes and so if you are looking for a product with a beautiful compact you will be sorely disappointed. The very basic and ecologically sound packaging means they are ideal for a pro kit however – or for anyone who uses a magnetic palette. I personally wouldn’t rely on the packaging to keep the blush from cracking or damage so if you don’t have a palette, it may be worth investing.
