My first ever introduction to a really good cream blusher was from Bobbi Brown, which came in a kind of stumpy little stick and the formula was beautiful. For some reason they were altered, with both the packaging and formula changing, which was a real loss. The Burt’s Bees All Aglow Lip and Cheek Stick are the closest I’ve come to those beautiful blushers, and I would say everyone needs at least one of these in their kit.
The Burt’s Bees All Aglow Lip and Cheek Stick are generously sized stick blushers with a hydrating core, meaning you get a good payoff of colour alongside a light layer of balm, that gives the blusher the most beautiful dewy finish that is amazing flattering without looking greasy. This also means that the blusher provides a wash of really easy-to-blend colour, so this is a great option for those who struggle to blend out more traditionally denser cream blushers, but also if you want a very low-key make-up look as these are really, really easy to use.
I apply by swiping a generous circle on each cheek, which I then blend out, either with my fingers or a brush. I haven’t actually tried these on my lips, but the formula is light and sheer, so they are the perfect holiday product – you could get away with this, a tinted moisturiser, and a lash and brow mascara for your entire holiday make-up look if you’re eager to pack light!
The three shades I have are (from top to bottom) Suez Sands – a muted pink great for a touch of colour, Peach Pond – this looks bright in the swatch, but it’s actually very light and perfect with a bit of a tan and finally Blush Bay, a slightly brighter pink that gives a pop of colour without being too in-your-face. I found myself using Suez Sands the most whilst on holiday, but since I got back I’ve reached more for Peach Pond. There are three other shades in the collection, so there’s something for everyone. These are absolutely beautiful and I’m a total fan.
