Cheek to cheek

Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder, Liz Earle blusher in Nude c/o, Topshop Cream Blusher in Neon Rose (similar), Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake

Now the summer has decided to make an appearance albeit a little hit and miss, I thought i'd share a few of my favourite cheek products that have been in rotation over the last few months.

My all time favourite bronzer that I come back to time and time again is the Bourjois offering. It's such a staple product in my make up bag. I love the fact it's fairly matte and doesn't turn me into a glitterball. It's great value for money and lasts for ages as you don't need too much. Be careful when you apply as it can look a little 'muddy' if you're too heavy handed.

I was kindly given the matte Liz Earle blush and fell in love from the first swipe. Again it's best to use quite lightly as it's very pigminted. It has amazing staying power and looks gorgeous when you have a bit of a tan. Alternatively it's great to use when you're feeling pale and need a pick-me-up. 

I picked up the Topshop cream blush on a whim as i'd been reading too many blogs and regretted the colour choice when I got home. I'm a bronzer girl through and through! It was a moment of madness and remained untouched until the weather started to heat up. Now I love it for a night out. It's not quite as scary as it looks in the pot! It's a great product to build up depending on what sort of mood you're in. It doesn't go streaky and glides on effortlessly.

Finally the cream Maybelline blush was something I picked up whilst I was in New York back in April. I was immediately drawn to the colour as I thought it'd be great for a subtle everyday look. I was completely right and love it when I want to look glowing but also that I haven't tried too hard! I wish i'd picked up more of the range.

What's your favourite cheek product at the moment? Have you tried any of my picks?


  1. This has made me want to buy American make-up. I love Neon Rose but I'm super pale so bronzer sadly doesn't work for me! x

  2. The Liz Earle cheek colour is pretty. xx


  3. I've been wanting to try some bourgeois products. Have you tried the foundations?

  4. The Liz Earle looks gorgeous! <3
