I tend to prefer powder blushes over cream ones but after seeing my sister wear Topshop Cream Blush in Neon Rose I really liked how it looked and ordered it when they had free shipping online. Upon receiving Neon Rose I discovered that it is was a slightly more orange version of Tarte Tipsy yet it looks identical on my cheeks. Neon Rose looks very scary in the pan but as you can see it looks very natural and brightening when on.
Topshop Cream Blushes dry to a powder finish and you can easily apply them either before or after you powder your face. My prefered method for applying cream blush is the Real Techniques Buffing Brush but I have admittedly used my fingers before too :) This blush does however fade very quickly so I do have to touch it up. Luckily Topshop's packaging is very sleek and light so it's easy to carry it around.
Even in Canada where Topshop makeup is drastically over priced this is much cheaper than Tarte's blush. Topshop also offer a 10% student discount, which is handy if you are a student or can bring a student with you (luckily my sister is a student).
