Last week I posted my Christmas party makeup look in collaboration with Topshop, and as part of that makeup look I used Topshop’s recently launched Metallic Cream Blush in ‘Aorta’. I have been *really* loving this blush lately, so if you’d like a more in-depth review and swatches – read on!
I am a huge fan of the Topshop Beauty range, in particular their cheeks, lips and nails products (.. as well as their eyes and face products, haha!). Having tried out only one other cream blush from the Topshop range (‘Head Over Heels’, a coral shade, perfect for the summer!) and been very impressed with it, I could not wait to get my hands on a more winter appropriate shade.
Keeping with the latest ‘metallic’ trend, Topshop have recently added some ‘metallic’ items to their beauty range – mainly cream blushes and lipsticks. I was instantly drawn to the darker of the two new cream blushes, ‘Aorta’, a metallic (obvs) burgundy-berry shade. Although this might sound like a pretty daring colour to apply to your face, I can assure you that it looks very subtle and beautiful once blended into the skin! Take a look at the swatches below. (You can take a look at what it looks like on my face here).
I find the easiest way to apply Topshop’s cream blush is using my fingers rather than a blush – I do this by simply dotting some blush onto my cheeks then blending it outwards on the apples of my cheeks. One thing I really love about this cream blush is that due to its metallic properties, it also doubles up as a highlight on top of the cheeks! It has also got great lasting power and lasts pretty much all day.
As with all other Topshop Beauty products, the cream blush is housed in really pretty and sturdy packaging. It also comes with a mirror, making it ideal for travelling with or for touch ups on the go!
I would highly recommend trying this one out!
