Cream blush is perfect for the summer months, it's sheer so it doesn't look like you are wearing loads of make-up and it's great for a natural look.


We also love cream blush so much is because it is so multi-purpose...

Obviously the best use is to give your cheeks a little extra glow when you are feeling washed out but you can also dab some on your lips as a lipgloss or on your eyelids for eyeshadow.

We've tried and test the best on the market and here are our five favourites. Check them out here:

The best thing about cream blush is that you don't need to spend a fortune to get great results, we love Boot's 17 range. Their Get Cheeky cream blush is just £2.99, it's really easy to blend for a fresh natural glow and comes in three different shades to suit your face.

Also in the bargain end of blush is Rimmel's Mousse Blush, £4.99 available at Boots or Superdrug nationwide

The air-light formula comes in two rather delicious sounding shades (we tried Peach Iced Tea - a peachy tone that is so on trend!) that promise to cool you down while they brighten you up. The water-based formula gives off a cooling sensation designed to keep your face refreshed and soft for at least eight hours.

For £1 more than the Rimmel blush we found Maybelline's Dream Mousse blush in Dolly pink for £5.99.

Dream Mousse Blush uses advanced technology to air-whip the mousse, it feels virtually weightless and glides on quickly and easily creating a unique, silky texture without fading or creasing.

If you like to spend a little more on your make-up then we recommend this Blushcreme, £14, from Mac

Mac are the masters when it comes to luxury and this blushcreme is no excuse, the luxuriously soft and creamy blush tenderly flushes the cheeks or brings them into full-blown rosy bloom. It blends really well and gives a vibrant, dewy fresh, slightly shiny look to the cheeks. We tried the Posey shade and thought it was perfect for summer days.

Also in the expensive end of the market is the sheer cream blusher, £14.50, from Benefit

The lightweight-blendable formula dries down to a perfect silky powder finish. Benefit's sheer cream blushers give cheeks a perky pinch of natural color, there are three shades in the collection but with names like Ooh... Hush! and Shhh! You might need to visit a Benefit counter to choose the right shade for you.

Next week look out for Tried and Tested - Neon nails!
