Two Cream Blushes Worth Getting!

Hi ladies,

These are two winners in my opinion. Definitely!
Who doesn't like a good cream blush that will lift your spirit? Surely you do!

Don't panic these two will cover all your needs and preferences. If you don't like one I'm sure you will like the other.

Mac Something Special
It's super creamy and it gives you a dewy look.
Ideal for a candlelight night, for a long night out or even for day wear (for me).
It's a bit on the pink side.
It's part of the permanent collection now.
It's about £15ish?

Gosh Peachy Rush
It's a cream to powder formula and it's matte.
It takes a bit more effort to blend on the cheeks because of the formula but the result is worth it.
It's super peachy.
You can get it in Superdrug and they have a 3 for 2 offer at the moment. This one is about £7.

They look similar in the pan but they are a bit different when swatched.

Had swatches in different lights.

What do you think?
Do we have two winners?
I think so.

    @Amy: The Gosh one is &quot;kind&quot; of similar to the TopShop ones in texture but it takes a tiny bit more effort. The Mac ones are super soft and easy to play with.<br /><br />@Parisa: It&#39;s easy. I prefer to use my fingers to pick up the product and to blend. I find that the brushes pick up to much. Test them on your arm first to see the intensity. They are super easy to blend and get right. Try them. X

    I was gonna purchase Something Speccial but went to the illamasqua counter instead.. Love Dixie and Rude cream blushes.. I&#39;ve got swatches in my blog if you&#39;d like to see what they look like.. They&#39;re very pigmented and have great staying power for cream blushes..

    @Vivianna: Thanks :). Glad you liked it. X<br /><br />@Cloie Elizabeth: Which one is your favourite? Any recommendations? X<br /><br />@Justine (Productrater): It&#39;s good but it needs a bit more patience. X<br /><br />@The Peach: You should..I find them better than powder ones. X<br /><br />@GABY: too! I love the formulation. X<br /><br />@Delyteful Speaks: I wanted Rude for soooo long! It&#39;s in my never ending wish list. I just need to get down to Selfridges to get it. I&#39;ll have a look. X
