Hello All

I have been using boots natural collection cream blush (rosy glow) for yeas & now they have discontinued it. Fuming! Can anyone recommend a good cream blush that isn't hugely expensive. Thanks

They seem to have discontinued all of their cream blush shades

Max factor miracle creamy blush is brilliant and lasts well. it's about £6 ish in Boots and some good colours

Greenglassteacup Thu 28-Sep-17 13:42:45

Thank Monkey, I will have a look tomorrow. Keep the suggestions coming as I only have a pathetic squirt of my old blusha left!!

Collection Speedy Blush Stick - less than a fiver. Not a cream blush fan as skin too oily, but I got one in beauty box and was impressed.

Greenglassteacup Thu 28-Sep-17 13:48:17

Thanks. I have really dry skin so need a cream rather than a powder. I don't like anything shimmery though

I use Max Factor too, in soft pink I think, and I also use Benetint stain.

I've got Revlon 'Charmed Enchantment' solid cream blush in a little pot - it's fab and lasts for years! I think it was about £8.

Thank you flowers Lots for me to look for tomorrow

MUA (make up academy) in Superdrug do a blush stick duo, e.g. One side is dark pink the other pale pink, it's quite nice and is very pigmented.

oh no OP that is bad news they were absolutely the best cream blushers ever!!
i loved rosy glow and I think natural glow? why do they discontinue products that work well. they weren't sparkly, weren't matte just positively glowing and not what you expect at all from a cream blusher as they weren't too 'creamy' either. oh this is not good news as I cannot think of an alternative as good, sorry angry

Greenglassteacup Thu 28-Sep-17 17:56:37

I know!!!! Why would they discontinue this? It's been 'out of stock' for months & now they seem to have replaced it with some dry powders products which are no good for my skin at all. Infuriating

Another vote for max factor!

I also have collection speedy blush stick and pretty impressive for so cheap. I've recently discovered blush sticks and have a Clinique one that I love but is ££ so I use that in the morning and keep the collection one in my handbag for if I need a top up and it's great

I am making a list for when I go to Boots tomorrow!

Acornantics Thu 28-Sep-17 18:44:36

No7 do a nice stick one, soft rose colour and a bargain if you can get a 3 for 2 offer

Greenglassteacup Thu 28-Sep-17 18:54:54

The natural collection ones came in a tube & the texture was nice & thick - you only needed a tiny amount but the colour was great & it could be applied with fingertips & it blended beautifully sad

talkshowhost97 Thu 28-Sep-17 18:58:30

OMG I have used this for years and didn't know this. A tube lasts forever though and thankfully I got a new one only a couple of months ago. Why, Boots, why? It's the best (budget) cream blush ever. Subtle and natural over tinted moisturiser for those of us who don't really 'do' makeup. Shit!

Greenglassteacup Thu 28-Sep-17 20:13:53

I know!! I use mine over tinted moisturiser too. Boots are dick heads to do this.

jalopy Thu 28-Sep-17 20:58:30

Another vote for Max Factor. Soft pink is gorgeous.

Maudlinmaud Thu 28-Sep-17 21:02:12

I've never used this. I don't even peep at natural collection stuff, now I feel like I've missed out envy
Boots no 7 do a lovely cream blush in a chubby stick.

😊 thank you

greenglassteacup did you manage to find a replacement for the Natural Collection cream blush in rosy pink? It's my absolute favourite, hasn't realised they've stopped making it! I only have half a tube left.

Not sure what's going on with boots at the moment- they've axed a lot of really great. popular products (Time Delay Brightening Toner- was such a good cheap AHA!)
