Cream blushers

I think this may be the answer to me looking better quickly (after a long journey for example) but not carrying too much stuff around with me.

Any recommendations ? I have no7 but the colour is actually not great on me and they didnt have many options.

NARS Multiple stick.

Bobbi Brown make nice ones that blend easily and give a nice fresh glow. Good range of shades too

Used2bthin Thu 13-Mar-14 20:08:41

Ooh thank you, I will google them. We don't have stockists for either anywhere locally to try them but I may be able to work out colours and order online

Bourjois now do a cream one which is meant to adjust to your skintone. I don't know if that really happens but on me it's white a light rosy pink. Seems to last quite well too.

MUA from superdrug do good ones too.

Both quite cheap.

Revlon do nice cream blush. Go for the brighter colours, they're very sheer when applied. Stila and Bobbi Brown are lovely too.

TripTrapTripTrapOverTheBridge Thu 13-Mar-14 20:23:35

Bobbi Brown is fab.

Barbara Daly isn't bad either.

Or try a tint ie Benefit posietint or benetint

Clarins every time. They have just relaunched and I use them as blusher and a subtle eyeshadow. Sounds weird but it works.

Used2bthin Thu 13-Mar-14 20:41:26

Lots of suggestions thank you! I will have a look at the bourgeois one, can also look at revlon and Mua but don't have stila here either (I live in a touristy city but shopping is unbeleiveably rubbish here)

I used to have benetint but it was a bit red toned , I will look again at posie tint though. Is Barbara daly tescos?

We have Clarins counters so I can have a look at the too. Thanks all!

I really like the diddy Max Factor pots (I think. Miracle Touch)
The pink i have is lovely, and really makes my face look a awake.

Will look at max factor thanks, I think I had discounted them as I seem not to be able to wear their colours very often.

I have abit of a fetish for cream blush and I would also recommend the max factor one for a newbe. You can then play about with it without spending a fortune. They are often on deals at boots or superdrug. There are some great tutorials on youtube for tips on application.

i have had many comments on my cream blusher its mua £1 can't do better than that!

knitknack Sat 15-Mar-14 07:37:03

I have loads of cream clusters including bobbi brown and illumasqua etc but the one I'm reaching for the most at the moment is the new rimmel tube! £2.99! There's a lovely natural pink flush or an equally nice coral. Apply with a real techniques face brush - it's brilliant smile

knitknack Sat 15-Mar-14 07:37:37

Blushers... I have no clusters (how very dare you autocorrect)

VarsityQueen Sat 15-Mar-14 08:26:51

I like the Liz Earle cream blush, I've got the Nude shade

Housewife2010 Sat 15-Mar-14 12:30:23

I like Bobbi Brown Por Rouge in Pretty Powerful. I would not have chosen the colour - it came in a palette, but it's very wearable & I would rebuy.

Used2bthin Sat 15-Mar-14 12:30:27

Thank you everyone, had to go to the bank today and couldn't resist the Clarins counter on the way back, got a cream blusher in peach which is a nice spring like shade but I still would like a brighter pink one for when I feel the need for less natural a look!

Mua sounds excellent value for money I will try that when I next get to superdrug and may try a Rimmel too (and then try not to buy any more for a bit !) I am forever buying red lipsticks and rarely actually wear them so am going to try and be a bit more sensible with blushers...

Another Boujoir fan here

Dandelion powder bourjois

Millyblods Sat 15-Mar-14 14:26:38

Is it Boujois or Benefit Noddy grin

noddyholder Sat 15-Mar-14 14:51:27

grin sorry! Benefit and powder not cream so ignore me

HollaAtMeBaby Sat 15-Mar-14 16:36:46

Anyone tried the Clinique Blushwear stick? I am quietly coveting this at present...

Used2bthin Sun 16-Mar-14 09:27:39

I haven't but I want that Clinique one too now, great reviews!
