Review: Topshop Head Over Heels Blush

It's kind of funny how I came across this blusher. After watching Styled to Rock for a few weeks, I noticed how pretty Heidi's orange-peach blusher was. After a good while of wondering what blusher she wore, I finally had the good sense to tweet her and ask her what brand it was. She very kindly replied to tell me that it was from Topshop so I had a look and discovered Head Over Heels.

Ok, so first things first, the packaging. I love the Topshop packaging. It's very cute, with little black polkadots on white. It seems fairly sturdy and has a little mirror on the inside which is always handy.

On first opening, the blusher is a bright coral, almost orange in tone. On application, it's a very similar tone on my skin, although it becomes more sheer as I blend it in so it's not quite as bright. The pigmentation is great though and it's easy to build up to a brighter shade.

The consistency is creamy. It blends really smoothly on my skin and dries to a natural matte, unlike the more dewy cream blushes I've tried in the past. I prefer the more matte appearance of this blush as it doesn't slide around my face and it looks a lot more natural.

In terms of longevity, the blush is ok. It's not fantastic but it does last a good few hours before fading evenly. At least it doesn't smudge or run, just gradually fades away. 

This blusher retails at £6 which, for me, is incredible! I usually wear Benefit and MAC blushers which are £20+ so this is a revelation. I've also got a Topshop lipstick that I love so it looks like Topshop make up really is a gem!
