Top 5 Blushes | YSL, Topshop and ELF

I never used to be one for blush, but recently they have become my obsession. Now, with summer supposedly just around the corner, cream blushes have found there way out of storage and into my makeup bag. 

So, today I wanted to share with you my top 5 blushes of the moment. So, in not particular order, I give you my favourite blushes of the moment. 

Top 5 Blushes

5. ELF Studio Blush – Pink Passion

At only £3.50, this matte, bright pink blush is a favourite of mine. It's decently pigments, the packaging is nice and it blends really nicely. It can fade a little though out the day, but I don't mind considering the price. A total must have for me!

4. Topshop Cream Blush – Head Over Heels

This is the only orange toned blush I've found that I can wear. Usually they look awful on my but with the pink tone also in this blush these look great! It's great for summer and the cream to powder formula makes it long wearing.  It easy to apply and super blendable, so a great all round winner for me. Read my full review here!

3. YSL Blush Variation - Shade 2

I fell in love with this the moment I got it. Not only is it super luxurious but it's a great colour and formulation. I love the colour, and it leaves the most amazing finish to the cheeks. There is  a little hint of shimmer in there but it doesn't make you look like Edward Cullen, but rather leaves a nice luminous finish to the cheeks.
2. Topshop Cream Blush – Neon Rose

I've already said I love the formulation of these cream blushes, so that gives this one big tick right away. The colour of this gives it another huge tick as well. The beautiful yet subtle pink colour works with almost any makeup look and works great on my skin tone. Read my full review here and here!
Topshop Cream Blush – Flush

Yes, this is the third Topshop blush in my favourites but I love them just that much. This colour is my favourite of them all. The bright pink can be blended to a more subtle look or built up to make the cheeks pop! It's just the right tone of pink for my skin tone.  Read my full review here and here!


  1. I am really glad to see the elf one!! I love elf too and this shade is really gorgeous! I also have candid coral and glow (from their essentials collection). I would LOVE to try topshop makeup but they're not available in Puerto Rico :( Enjoy all these gorgeous shades!! XOXOX

    1. candid coral is from their studio collection, and glow is from their essentials collection :)

    2. It sucks you can get the topshop makeup there! It's really great. Maybe you can arrange a swap or something :) x I have a couple of ELF blushes from the essentials collection. I like them but the packaging sucks. From what I've seen thought, the packaging has been changed so I may give some other shades a go :) x

  2. ELF blushes are so good but they've gone slightly up in price. Still worth it though. xx

    1. Oh, it's gorgeous! I'm not normally one for the peachy, coraly coloured blushes but this on is never far from my makeup bag x
