I am a woman. A woman on a mission. Well, a woman on two missions.
I keep trying to tell Tabs that since both El Hub and I tend to all of his household cleaning and cooking needs, technically, it’s like we’re his “two maids,” but he’s not having that.
As you know, in the feline fashion world, one minute you’re in…and the next minute you’re staring at pics of a fluffy blue-eyed kitten hanging from a Chanel bag.
Appearances are everything.
So now he wants me to hire more “help.”
Aaaaaand these are the days of my life…
My second mission is more exciting. Why? Because it involves helping you discover one of the most universally flattering pink cream blushes I’ve come across this year.
Oh, and my favorite thing about it? It costs a lot less than two personal kitty maids! Topshop’s $12 Blush in Flush is everything I like in a pink cream blush — natural-looking, long-lasting and universally flattering.
Like Earth, this peachy pink blush also inhabits the “Goldilocks Zone,” where the color temperature is juuust right, nicely between cool and warm, so it should look great on a wide range of skin tones, and it has the faintest whisker kiss of sheen. It’s easy to sheer out for a dainty flush or build up for a bright spotlight of color, making it an option for pale beauties and darker damsels.
And you know how some blushes slip away in the early afternoon or cling to every little flake (Ugh! — the dreaded patchwork cheeks)? Not a problem for Flush.
It has a knack for clinging to different skin types, so the color on my apples stays solid and true all day long. There aren’t many blushes out there able to handle the combination oily/dry skin on my cheeks, and fewer still as pretty as Flush.
But why stop there? It’s also easy to blend, flexible (works on bare skin, and on top of foundation and/or powder), and looks cute in its packaging, like something I would have doodled in the margins of my history notebook, right next to the lines of loopy script that read, “Mr. and Mrs. Jordan Knight” and “New Kids 4-ever.”
If you’ve been looking for a flattering pink blush with all the right stuff, you might want to get your fluffy kitten paws on Flush.
