Make Up: Topshop Cream Blush in Prime Time.

Topshop has very quickly become one of my favourite make up brands. The packaging is super cute, the quality is wonderful, the prices are amazingly affordable and the core collection is always evolving ensuring each seasons hottest colours are incorporated. I almost said trendy there. Oh how I hate the word trendy, it's like the word moist, it makes me cringe!

Topshop Prime Time cream blush. (£6)

As soon as I spied this blush in the shade Prime Time on the Topshop make up stand I knew it had to be mine. I used to have Neon Rose in my collection but I had to part with it in a blog sale because I couldn't quite make the intense coral colour work for me. The formula however was one of my absolute favourites so I was excited to find a shade that would suit my complexion a little more.

Prime Time is described on the website as simply a pink shade but it reality it is so much more than that. It is a beautifully pigmented intense, almost hot pink shade that blends super easily into the skin so you can apply lightly for a sheer wash of colour, or use a slightly heavier hand for a more statement look. I can see this working for so many different skin tones depending on the brush used to apply, so if you're very fair like I am, you don't have to fear the china doll look; a stipple brush & a light hand gives a super pretty light flush. The cream to powder formulation means that it will also work for so many different skin types too.

At only £6 each, these blushes are so incredibly affordable, and quality wise, I would easily put these on par with some of the more expensive cream blushes I have tried. I'll definitely be popping back to have a look at the other shades available! I also still can't get over the super cute packaging, it looks so lovely sat on my dressing table!

    1. It's super intense in the pan, the best colours always are! Easy to sheer out though which is the main thing! xo

  6. I am a massive Topshop make-up hoarder especially for the blushes and lipsticks. I have this blush,but not had it on yet as its in the pile to be photographed at the moment. I've also got three others - powdered is one of my favourites, it's not a cream blush though.

  7. This is an absolutely gorgeous colour! Definitely on my list of Topshop purchases (along with the highlighter, bit slow on the uptake of that one!)
    On a side note, I know exactly what you mean about 'moist', it's a vile word! Just thinking of it makes me shudder! xx

  8. At the moment I only have the Head Over Heels shade which I loooove but was going to look for a pinkier one and this may just be it!
    On a different note, I used to hate the word 'lush' but now I don't mind it! Agree with 'trendy' though haha cringe x

  13. This looks so, so pretty! Hot pinks usually make me look like I've been on the brandy, though haha :) Topshop 'Nutmeg' blush is my absolute favourite - it works with EVERY look. I've also applied it to a few friends and it seems to suit every complexion. Wonderful product!

  14. This looks REALLY similar in the pan to their cream blush in Pinch that I bought a couple of months ago! http://sophias-style.blogspot.co.uk/2011/12/topshop-make-up-reviews-inc-swatches.html How odd! This looks lovely on you though, suits your English rose complexion :-)

  15. That shade is so nice! I havn't tried any of the topshop makeup range as I live in Australia now, I keep meaning to place a sneaky online order but I'm going to Melbourne next month where the only Topshop in Australia is (imagine that!) so I'll definitely be bagging some goodies! Hope they have the cosmetics, I'm sure they will!
