These creamy textured blusher sticks can be applied over cheeks lightly for a sheer wash of colour or with a bit more intensity for a bolder blush look.

The texture of the stick itself is very creamy. I love the fact the product can easily be applied straight from the tube and then blended out with your fingers. I've found this a lot easier than trying to use a brush, but a quick swipe with a buffing brush would also do the trick nicely.
If you're using one of the brighter shades like the pink pictured, start with a very gentle hand - the bolder shades in the collection come out pretty vivid and it can be easy to end up looking like coco the clown if you're not careful.
The paler shade I've got falls more into highlighter territory for me and is a complete dream to use. A quick dab across the cheekbones and a finger blend and you get a luminous look to the skin with minimal shimmer.
There are 8 shades in the range to choose from (technically there are four, but there is a matte and a shimmer version for each one) and each one costs £5. Talk about a bargain! I'll definitely be investing in a few more post-spending ban, but will probably stick to the lighter shades as I feel they're the best match for my skin tone.
You can find The One Blush Sticks online from Makeup Revolution and on Makeup Revolution counters in larger Superdrug stores.
