Topshop Morning Dew Blush

I have always felt a little skeptical buying make-up from clothing shops (i.e Topshop, Accessorize) as I felt that the quality I wanted just wouldn't be there, but after trying Topshop's nail varnishes and being thoughroughly impressed I thought I would give something else from their range a go.

I originally wanted one of their Blush Sticks which I thought would be similar to Benefit's Fine One One (which is my absolute favourite blush) but when I checked out the shades they had I felt they were much too bright for my skin tone so I browsed the shelves and picked up this creme blush in Morning Dew.

Firstly, before I get to the product I just want to say how much I love the packaging. I love the simple black design of the box on the outside and inside its encased in a cute white pot. It makes it so easy to grab from my make up bag!

Inside is a handy little mirror, perfect for on the go.

Morning Dew is a subtle pink  lightweight cream blush which turns to powder. It melts into my skin which makes it easy to build up the amount of glow I want. The only thing I don't like about it is that I can't apply it directly to my face like I can with the Fine One One blush stick so I have to use my fingers or one of my real technique brushes. Hopefully Topshop will release some more shades in their blush sticks so I can buy one of those.

The colour payoff is really good and even though to me it looks a little daunting in the pot the shade is really lovely (I always worry about looking like a clown!)

Do you own any make-up from the Topshop range? What do you think to it?


  1. I feel the same as you about buying makeup in a clothes store. I have two of their lipsticks and they are alright. This is a really lovely colour though xx

  2. I never ever remember that they even do makeup on the rare occasion that I am in a branch! The packaging is really cute, great colour payoff too x

  3. TopShop doesn't joke around with their make up and I love that! Their lipsticks are some of my favorite and I need to try out their blushes! This one is really pretty and I love the name :) I love your reviews and how you keep them short and sweet - makes it a lot easier for me to get the jist of how you felt about the product! :)

  4. I've only tried Topshop nail polish and I wasn't impressed, but this looks like it could be really good. It seems I have to broaden my Topshop makeup horizons!

  5. Ooo I really need a new blush! I'm not sure about this colour on me but definitely going to check out Topshops range... I like the sound of their blush sticks, off to Topshop I go ;)
