There have been lots of comments about my blusher in the Empties video that I posted last week: it’s the Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink from Max Factor. Rather more pinkish than I would ever usually go, but I was filming one of my Beauty Recommended videos and this was one of the shades to experiment with.
I think that it gives a real lift to the skin, don’t you think? Good for tired days when bronzer just looks a bit flat and drab. Excuse the moody face in my photo – as usual, I forgot to take a proper picture and this is a still that I grabbed from the video. You’d think someone had kidnapped my hamster…
I swept Seductive Pink on to the apples of my cheeks using the Zoeva Luxe Face Definer Brush – just the tip of it, and very lightly, because it’s not really a blush brush, I just couldn’t find my Bobbi Brown one.
I find the Creme Puff blushers so easy to use – very natural and glowing. Each blush has a few slightly different shades swirled in, so you don’t just get one flat colour, it’s a wash of beautiful tones. I’ve reviewed the Creme Puff blushers before here, but as a quick reference, if you love the Hourglass powders then you’ll get on very well with Creme Puff. And they’re a fraction of the price.
You can find Creme Puff Blushers at Boots here – they’re £8.99 each. If you catch them on a 3-for-2 then my all-time favourite is Nude Mauve and I have a new crush on Alluring Rose, too.
