Hello ladies, after taking your advice several times already im after more in my quest to have the perfect style and beauty life! Can you recommend a natural (English rose, pinched cheek) blusher for me? I am pale with dark hair. Thanks all!

I think cream blushers are good for a natural look. I like the Bourjois Aqua one. Not totally sure of the exact name. It comes in a little pump and is easily blendable, buildable and has no shimmer so looks more natural.

I recommend the creme puff blushers from max factor. Come and join MrsGloss&TheGoss over on FB as we are discussing this issue right now!

Cheap and still good - Sleek.

I second the vote for Sleek. I think they're excellent quality and look and feel a lot more expensive than they are.

The Clinique chubby sticks are good for this - I've got a lovely pink one, can't remember the shade. Try a few.

Liz Earle Healthy Glow cream blush. It is as it says. Several shades, i have it in Nude. Not cheap, mind, £16.50.

Following this thread. I've never heard of Sleek so just looked it up. Do they have them in larger Boots? I've never seen them in our small branch and can't work out which shade to order online. Is there a 'rosy' one, does anyone know?
I looked at Estée Lauder and got a shock at the price - £27. I didn't mind paying £30 for the Double Wear foundation, but couldn't justify so much for a blusher!

I've just bought this:

It's pink but neutral and looks natural on.

I've previously seen sleek in independent shops and also in Superdrug stores. I have the rose gold shade and also a hot pink shade (can't remember the name). I think they both suit me quite well (I have dark skin).

They used to make trio packs and there was one which had peachy shades and looked really pretty. They are very strongly pigmented and its best to use them sparingly.

How do you apply the cream ones? I take it it's not with a powder blush? I put loose face powder on then powder blush on top of that. Would the cream blush need to go before the loose powder?

Never used it before but am interested!

Cream blush is best blended straight into liquid foundation with either a brush or fingertips. I usually avoid powdering the cheek area as the blush has a nice glowy look that I like.

As far as I'm aware cream products should never be applied onto powder. I suppose you could lightly powder on top of the cream blush but you'd lose the glowy effect.

Thanks - not sure my nose and t-zone would cope with no powder on them though plus my bronzer is powder too and I look dead without it grin

You can still powder your t-zone - just avoid the area where you've applied the cream blush.

I use cream blusher and have oily skin so I use a small brush to powder my t-zone and anywhere I've used concealer.

ProbablyMe Thu 28-Jan-16 18:23:21

Sleek here too. My local Tesco recently started stocking them. Mine looks very bright pink but is natural on. Think it's called flush? I am pretty pale skinned.

MissAlabamaWhitman Thu 28-Jan-16 21:29:28

Dior rosy glow.
Not cheap but absolutely beautiful, lasts ages and adjusts to your skin tone

GingerLDN Thu 28-Jan-16 22:55:51

Benefit Rockateur is a lovely blusher. Benefit are great for blushers.

Didiusfalco Thu 28-Jan-16 23:00:03

ive got similar colouring to you and i like bourjois aqua blush, as a pp mentioned it is easy to blend and non-shimmery. Reasonably priced too.

sohackedoff Thu 28-Jan-16 23:44:46

Every time I wear benefit benetint and with some Clarins primer underneath I get asked if I've just come back of holiday. Seems to give that nice healthy relaxed glow apparently ...

PurpleDaisies Thu 28-Jan-16 23:49:43

Another vote for Dior rosy glow. Stays on all day, looks incredibly natural (magic considering it looks fluoro pink in the box) and definitely worth the money.

Walkingonsunshine00 Thu 28-Jan-16 23:53:07

Seventeen powder blush in China pink

PitPatKitKat Fri 29-Jan-16 05:19:32

Another one for Benetint.

I like Rimmel Cream blush. It lasts and the colour pop of pink looks natural on my skin.

I've been ditching all of my expensive brands in recent months and find myself using cheaper prices products more and more!

CannotEatApples Fri 29-Jan-16 09:13:25

Another vote for Rosy Glow by Dior. I'm very fair and only need a tiny bit but it does give me a natural glow that lasts hours. I've had it a few months now, use it almost every day, and have hardly dented the pallet. The colour is a bit shocking though but don't let that put you off.
