Favourite Spring Blushers

So we had a rocky Winter here in London, just like every damn year. It just could not decide if its coming to an end or beginning all over again.

But finally we see a stable climate and the days seem slightly brighter and longer. That of course means the bright and summery blushers get to see daylight from the bottom of the train case.

I have recently discovered two unusual ones, which have quickly become favourites and seem promising enough to take me through the whole of summer without complaining.

First is the Jemma Kidd Rosy Glow. It looks very much like Benetint at first glance however is not very similar you use it.

First of all, it comes in a retro roller ball applicator, which makes is much easier to apply the product on to the cheeks, after which you can either blend it with fingers or a synthetic brush. If you are applying it on someone else, dispense some amount on the back of your hand and then pick up the product with a brush.

It's a very deep berry shade with a rosy scent to it, inclining a a tiny bit towards a plummy undertone. 

It transfers so beautifully on to the skin and the application glides on like a dream. It's foolproof and requires absolutely no blending at all, regardless of whether you use fingers or a brush. It's much more thinner than other similar products in the market which is its USP in my opinion, which allows it to blend seamlessly. 

It lasts for about 6 hours after which it starts fading but still not so much that it would require a touch up.

It's become a quick staple in my everyday make-up as its not only convenient to apply but looks so natural and has a slight dewy finish to it which makes the skin glow. 

Oh and it looks great on the lips for a quick pop of colour!

Worth every penny that go into buying this baby for £20!

The second favourite is from Make Up Store and is called Lush

If you have used Make Up Store Blushers before, you would know they are of superior quality and blend in to the skin so well that all you can see is the colour pigment and absolutely no texture at all. 

This particular one is very pigmented and you need a very light hand with it unless you are going for a 70's look. The shade of this is what I am in love it. It's a pastel milky peach with no undertone of pink or brown, its simply peach and that's about it. 

It looks so doll like on the skin but still manages to make skin look fresh and bright. 

If you like warm blushers and want to try out something different, this will definitely help you transition from Winter to Spring. 

Make Up Store Blushers can be bought online for £14 or they also have a store in Whitecity Westfield.

Great post! I really need a new blush as well! I wanted NARS deep throat, but I really like the look of the Make Up Store one, not too sure on the first, I think I'd be a bit cautious applying it, I think I'm more of a powder girl.

PS I love your blog!
