The texture is silky smooth and provides a creamy-powder finish that is extremely easy to apply and blend into the cheekbones; these blushers don't flake or provide a dusting that's hard to work with, just a hit of colour that works perfectly with your skin. I do love that these look beautiful, yet actually provide what I really want: a natural finish and an easy to apply formula. They work best when applied with a flat stippling brush, buffed into the skin gently to build up colour. You only need a little amount, thanks to the high level of pigment, which means you can also savour the floral pan design for as long as possible - it doesn't break down at the first sign of a brush, because it's so compactly pressed with product.
These are definitely my new favourite blushers, especially as you can easily re-apply and build up colour throughout the day. The pink shade is my current favourite, providing 'just stepped in from a cold walk' cheeks, but the peach and bronze shade will definitely be keeping me company when it's summertime. The pink-purple isn't my personal cup of tea and is probably best reserved for darker or my olive skintones, but it's still a beautiful shade that could easily be used on the eyes or mixed with lipbalm on the lips. At £16.50 these are a great payday treat and something to make you smile, when the onset of snow hits us in the next few days...!
