Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Love is the Drug

January 19, 2014

I trust you had a restful weekend… my lil bub was flu-ing away, and I myself just felt incredibly lethargic for no reason.  So all I did all Sunday was stay home and take pictures of my pretty things in preparation for this week’s blog posts!  Be warned!  

Looking through all the Spring collection this year, I can’t seem to find anything to get me super amped up.  Light pastel eyeshadows just don’t feel very me au current.  But sweet, coral pink-ish cheeks, that’s something I can do for sure!  I was this close to purchasing Dior’s Corail Bagatail blush from the Trianon Collection, when I decided to check my existing stash first.  And what do you know, tucked in my drawers waiting for its season, was this lovely Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in Love Is The Drug.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Love is the Drug

When it comes to blusher, I’m always seeking to re-create that shimmering, youthful flush of excitement you get when you’re in love – my clients and I call it the “love glow”.

— Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury’s blushers are designed with a 2-step “Swish & Pop” ritual – first you swish your brush around the outer ring of color and sweep that along your cheek bone; then dip the brush head in the center color and dab on the apples of your cheeks for a pop of color.  Sounds a little bit complicated, but it’s really easy, and it instantly gives the cheeks greater dimension and glow.

There are 6 variations of these Cheek to Chic blushers, and mine is called Love is The Drug.  It consists of a lighter coral-ish pink, and a brighter peach pink.  Both are incredibly pigmented, and has a satin finish.  The texture is incredibly soft and finely milled.  It also wore well on me, lasting through 8-10 hours with minimal fading.

This Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blush retails at GBP30 (approximately SGD60) for 8gm of product.  It is available internationally via Selfridges.com.  I do wish there is greater variety of colors, but for a first collection, I am genuinely pleased with the quality!  This Love is the Drug is surely going to be one of my more often reached-for blush this season!
