Topshop Cream Blush in 'Flush' Review

”topshop
Unfortunately my local Topshop has a hugely limited stock of the makeup (they only sell about three shades of nail polish) so on a recent trip to Westfield it was my mission to get my hands on one of these much raved about cream blushes. Neon Rose and Head Over Heels seem to be a popular choice for many people but after swatching them both I found them too orange for my skin tone and settled for Flush which has more pink undertones to it. 
Encased in a white spotty plastic pot it feels light and is a perfect size to pop in your makeup bag, the added mirror is also a lovely touch I find smaller mirrors can always be handy especially for applying mascara or just to have in your bag for emergencies! 
This is only the second cream blush I've ever tried. I have attempted the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush many times, but really don't get along with the consistency of it and find the shape of the pot quite difficult to work with, but this Topshop blush certainly comes leaps and bounds ahead of Maybelline.
It feels smooth and creamy to touch and just using your fingers to apply gives a gorgeous natural finish. The longevity of it is not amazing, this might just be on my skin but I wouldn't say it was long lasting or anything like that. For everyday wear I love this blush; the colour compliments my skin well and I actually look forward to applying it everyday! One of the best things about cream blushes is that you can also use them to apply on your lips so £6 for a 2in1 product isn't too bad! I'm pleasantly surprised that a fashion retailer has managed to come out with such a good makeup line and I'm really impressed so far, hopefully there will be more to come.
