If I could only choose one blush, or even one cheek product, the first answer that pops into my head is “Tart Exposed”. Well, if in that horrible scenario I was to be left without brushes too that answer would probably be quickly changed to H&M Beauty’s Dusty Rose Cream Blush. It’s ticking all the boxes for me, and despite not being a cream blush kinda girl it’s one I’ve been reaching for a lot lately. In a lot of ways Dusty Rose is Exposed’s cheaper, creamier sister. It’s the kind of shade that gives you a hint of definition and a bit of life all in the same time. Since it’s a cream there’s a bit of glow – even if the formula does set down to a powder. It’s easy to blend in and you can also build up the colour as it can blend out a bit sheer and maybe you want a bit of a punch, or as much of a punch as a dusty pink shade can give.
As you can see Dusty Rose (left) and Tarte Exposed (right) are twins. I’d say that the H&M offering is a bit “brighter” than the Tarte, but blended out on the cheek they look identical. I love both of these for the ease of use, the cream just needs some fingers and tapping in while the Tarte is just a quick sweep of a blush brush from pretty cheeks. It’s the ultimate blush for a bright lip, or a natural paired down look. I just love these type of shades – and the H&M one? It’s awesome.
If you’re a cream blush lover, get this. If you love the look of exposed but not it’s price, get it. If you’re overwhelmed by the sheer selection of H&M beauty – get this one.
Have you got any H&M Beauty suggestions? I’d love to try out more from the brand, so let me know!
