I don't get cream blushers

 Benefit - fine one one* 
Bourjois - Cream Blush 03 
Topshop - Louise Gray Cream blush Duo



I thought i'd show you guys my cream blushers. I picked up these three up in a short space of time. I don't really like cream blushers so these three basically sit in my drawer unused!

I just can't seem to apply cream blushers - I literally look like i've walked into something when I apply these to my cheeks.

I've tried watching videos etc and still can't seem to master it. If you have any tips or if you have a problem with cream blushers I would love to know!

Benefit's fine one one really attracted me- the packaging is nice and I love the idea of the different shades and a highlighter. I also like the idea that you can swipe it on easily.

I wanted the Bourjois blush so bad! Everyone was raving about it so I had to have it!

The topshop blush duo was in the sale for like £3 so I picked it up and I love the orange and pink shades.

Using a stippling brush in a circular motion works really nice. With fine 11, just swipe in an upwards diagonal on the top half of your cheek and tap the different shades into each other to blend. I hope that helps :)

If not why not go to a counter and ask a MUA to show you an application technique?

I really struggle with them too. It's a shame because so many people go on about them and look lovely with them on :(.

I love cream blush! I don't like the Bourjois one though I will admit, the cream to powder formula thing just didn't do it for me. The No7 Natural Cream Blush is actually really nice, and so easy to use. It practically melts into your skin (in a good way) and it's so easy to blend in, you might want to check them out if you struggle with them! :)

I love cream blush!

Always think it looks a lot more natural than powders. I find it easiest to use my fingers to warm up the blush then apply and blend.

I also use lipstick as a cream blush quite often!
