A Weekend Post: Drugstore Recommendations #3 Blushers


As I haven't done a drugstore recommendations post in a long time, I thought I would share some more of my faves with you, and this is on my new found favourite makeup items... Blusher. I can't help it, they're just so pretty and I have become totally obsessed. So I thought I would share some of my favourites from the drugstore.

1. First up is one that I haven't seen any posts or reviews on but I think they're amazing for the price etc. it's the Fashionista Blushers which can be bought singularly or put in a palette with your favourite shades. I think these are incredible blushers, at the minute they're £2 and the palettes are only £2.50 (4) or £3.00 (6). They're so pigmented and easy to blend and there's around 9 shades I believe, they're just incredible.

2. Next is a cream to powder formula, the Bourjois Cream Blushers are really easy to apply and blend, so they're perfect for anyone who hasn't used a cream blush before. There are 4 shades of these and they're part of the permanent collection but hopefully Bourjois will bring out some more shades either as limited edition or permanent collection. 

3. Something newly released this Spring is the Seventeen Cheek Stamp Blush (£4.99)Seventeen have been bringing out some amazing new products and are becoming very popular. They just work. This is something I haven't tried before and it's a powder blush that is in the bottom and when you close the stamp, the sponge applicator picks up the product. This stuff can leave you looking like a clown if you don't use a light hand with it. I actually take the blush off the sponge using a brush and then lightly dust it onto my cheeks to avoid that round dot of blusher right on the apples of the cheeks... You know what I mean...right? 

4. This wouldn't be a drugstore blusher post without the Maxfactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush, which is one of my favourite ever blushers. It's different to the Bourjois Cream Blushers because it's not a cream to powder finish, and I think that's why I prefer the Maxfactor offering. It just looks nice, easy to apply, either with brush or fingers, and gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks - Cream blushers really help to add a natural sheen to the skin leaving it looking radiant.

5. Onto my more recent additions to my blush collection but highly rate them already, and starting with the most amazingly priced brand ever. The MUA Perfection Cream Blushers (£2.00) and the MUA Powder Blushers (£1.00), that's right, £1.00 and £2.00 blushes, which are really good quality too. MUA is a brilliant brand and has some brilliant products, all for brilliant prices... Brilliant. Seriously though, these blushers are really pretty, very pigmented and are just stunning shades. 

6. Onto the other new additions to my blusher drawer is the No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush Sticks (£9.95), I saw (what a surprise) Kate from Ghost Parties rave about these things and I just had to give them a go as the No7 vouchers are flying around now with £3 off No7 makeup and £5 off their skincare and with 3 for 2 on pretty much everything, it's a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Anyway, I apply these directly to my cheeks and blend them in with my finger and they leave such a beautiful glow with a pop of colour (good name choice) and paired with the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter (thanks again Kate) it's just my go to cheek combo right now.

So that's it for my drugstore recommendations blusher edition. I will try and keep up with some more drugstore recommendation posts for you and keep your eyes out for some Top Picks too.
