Maybelline Dream Touch BlushSo I was doing my makeup on Sunday and really couldn't be arsed with anything time-consuming so stuck with an old reliable foundation, mascara, blush and vaseline on my lips. Fancy? Well not really. But I was only heading to the park with my pooches so going to the effort of applying any makeup at all was pretty impressive by my ridiculously lazy standards
Which got me thinking that if I'm going for a very (pretend) natural look then a cream blush seems more apt than a powder as it tends to look more, well, natural...
The only problem I have with cream and liquid blushes is that they have a propensity to make my pores look massive! I'd say on a scale of 1-10 (1 being pin-prick-sized and 10 being crater-sized) my pores are a perfectly acceptable 3. Unless I'm wearing certain blushes in which case they're a definite 17. Hey it's my scale, they can so be a 17!
This is precisely why it took months of wondering about the Dream Touch blushes before I actually splurged my hard-earned cash on one. It turned out to be a great buy because these are creamy, smooth, pigmented and a breeze to blend. And, you guessed it! The cream seems to float in a nice layer right over my skin so my pores don't look all gross and obvious
There are only 4 shades available which kinda sucks but I've found that the apricot and berry ones suit me just fine, they are buildable if you happen to want a more intense colour but a teensy dab blended with a simple makeup look is so natural you'd swear you weren't wearing blush at all
