Simply the best 

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. Blusher is one of those items which you use daily. But when it starts to break up and crumble into the distance and you are forced to buy another. It’s almost like a chore? No-one enjoys buying blusher. It’s like, will they still sell this shade? Do I have to spend £15 on blusher? Can’t I just use a pink eyeshadow instead? 

But blusher actually completes your look, and if applied correctly can also be used for contouring. So take blusher for granted no more people. 

On one of my silly splurges (they seem to happen only too often), I purchased Charlotte Tilburys cheek to chic blusher in ‘love is the drug’. Now, at £30 a pop you may have thought I’ve lost my marbles. But, it’s soooooo pretty – the packaging alone convinced me to buy it. 

Here are three simple reasons why you need this blusher in your life right now: 

1. Longevity 

At first I hated the hell out of this product, and I really thought I had wasted my money. I was even tempted to write the most rubbish, sarcastic review of it. But I soon realised, you have to know how to apply it. It’s very very VERY concentrated and pigmented, and this means if you get a little brush happy with your blusher brush. You will look like a clown. (Maybe not as bad as the ones that have been hiding in bushes with knives, but nevertheless quite clownified). The trick is to apply sparingly and dust excess blusher off of the brush before applying to your cheeks. The upside of this is that it lasts months upon months. I have had mine 4 months already, and it’s still like new. Brilliant! 

2. Don’t judge a book by its cover 

Well I definetly judged this blusher by its cover, and boyyyy was I right to do so. It looks so stunning, it comes with a lovely compact mirror – great for touch ups. A real compliment to your dressing table. I feel like a real life princess using this blusher 💅🏻 

3. Multi purpose 

Believe it or not this blusher is multi purpose. Firstly, it has two shades of blusher – which can be used for contouring. Secondly it is so pigmented that it can also be used as an eyeshadow (both shades). You can even add it to Vaseline on your lips for a rosy glow. The compact mirror is also (as mentioned above) handy to keep in your bag for hourly touch ups (maybe not hourly I’m not that vain am I??) 

So, considering it’s nearly… erm well hump day. Why not treat yourself?

    Your entire into paragraph is SO utterly relate-able; “will they still sell this shade…..should I spend $x…..Can’t I just use pink eyeshadow” I literally LOLed because I’ve thought those same things to myself SO MANY TIMES. But like you said it does complete and look and is 100% necessary. That one in particular I’m surprised it comes out so bright, but those ones are honestly the best ones bc like you said they last FOREVER ha. Does it come off as matte?
