If there's one time of year I love more than Christmas - yes I'm dropping that bomb in April - it's spring. It's the season of my birthday and the time of the year everything starts to come to life again. It also seems to be the time of year that I experiment and change up my makeup the most. Though it usually means one thing - trying out a lot of random stuff on my cheeks.
I'm not the palest person in the world, but I come pretty damn close. I definitely need a bit of a (ok a lot) of blusher or bronzer on occasion to perk my face up. In the Spring I tend to go for more cream formulas, although I wouldn't say no to a bit of bronzer, or the lovely Soap & Glory Glow All Out powder. The latter gives such a subtle pinky glow to the cheeks, and is generally an illuminating wonder.
My newest cream blusher purchase is that of the No7 Pop & Glow in Mango Sorbet, which is from first impressions the loveliest peachy colour I've ever tried. It applies quite pigmented, but once it's blended out it gives a natural glow to the cheeks. It's like a more pigmented-less-shimmery version of the Revlon Photoready Cream Blusher in Pinched. I do like the Revlon offering, but I'll by bypassing it for the No7 beauty.
Clarins are still one of my favourite brands to swoon over. I'm still very much in love with their Multi Blush Cream Blush in Candy - which seems to be the pinkest cream blusher I like at the moment. I have a coral/orange thing, try and stop me! It's cream to powder formula is dreamy, and it also means it lasts quite a while on the cheeks too.
The blusher that sits in the middle of pink and coral is the Bourjous Cream Blush in 01 - do we remember when these came out last year? I've been hoarding it all winter just for Spring. It's a brilliant nude shade, it's not too pink, not too orangey, so I'd say it's generally an all around winner. (Though I'm currently having an affair with the No7 Pop & Glow, but don't tell it that....)
