Do you have to be simultaneously sipping tea out of a dainty teacup while wearing Topshop’s $12 Cream Blush in Afternoon Tea to fully appreciate the nuances of either product?
No, you do not.
It does, however, help. 🙂
And it also helps to appreciate a great deal.
(Incidentally, if you decide to brew a pot of Earl Grey, I’ll take mine with cream and two lumps of sugar, please.)
I almost can’t believe this pretty pink cream-to-powder blush is only $12. It’s a total unsung hero in my book. On my unpredictably combination oily, and sometimes dry, cheeks, I swear it looks exactly like the $38 Le Blush Creme blushes by Chanel, and it lasts just as long. I get from eight to nine hours if I do a minor touchup around hour six.
Afternoon Tea starts with a subtle sheen, which gracefully transitions to a sheer matte neutral pink. The finish is natural to the extreme, and that’s why I love it. It looks neither heavy-handed, nor overdone. It creates a sweet, soft flush compatible with a multitude of different makeup looks, from super casual mascara and gloss, to full-on party looks with glitter, falsies and the whole nine yards. Great for girls (and guys) of all ages and skin types, and hello! — you seriously cannot beat that $12 price.
The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.
To attend this Afternoon Tea, stop by your local Nordstrom or Topshop store (or check it out online).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Have a terrific Tuesday, you. 🙂
