ABAD Day 15: Topshop Cream Blush in Crushed Berry//"每日一胭脂"系列 第15天: Topshop Crushed Berry胭脂膏

When I first got Topshop cream blush in "Flush", I immediately googled swatches of the entire range online and decided that I should try "Crushed Berry" given it's a lilac/purple shade (That said, I can't miss any purple/lilac/lavender hues released in blushes! XD). However a closer look online I discovered "Crushed Berry" is "discontinued"? Thanks to Elaine who got me this from Singapore where this shade is still available!

試過Topshop "Flush" 胭脂膏後, 我在Google找尋其餘的顏色時, 發現有紫色系的 "Crushed Berry"啊 (不能錯過任何粉紫色系的顏色XD). 細心看看發現Topshop的網已經沒有了 "Crushed Berry", 幸好Elaine在星加坡給我找到了!

It looks scary and dark in the pan but came out ever so nice...see swatch pics below.

看似很深色, 但出來的效果很nice呢...看看下面的試色圖.

See that "just-in-from-the-snow" glow?! You can't buy it but you can fake it with Topshop "Crushed Berry", haha.

又是那 "剛在雪地進入室內" 面上粉紅的氣息, 現在不用渡假都可以擁有的好面色, 哈哈.

Intensity: Highly pigmented, blends less well than the same blush in "Flush"
Finish: Matte
Price: ~$10-11 USD
Lasting power: 6 hours (longer than the same blush in "Flush")
Repurchase: Probably don't need to
Overall thoughts: Another unique shade to add to the stash. Although this blends less well than its counterpart "Flush" but it lasted longer, possibly due to the fact that this color is darker than "Flush".

上色度: 很高, 但沒有 "Flush"那麼容易推勻
效果: 啞光
價錢: ~$10-11 USD
持久度: 比同款不同色的 "Flush"持久, 6小時
回購: 不用了
總評: 又是一個很獨特的顏色, 值得一試. 雖然它比同款的不同色的 "Flush"較難推開, 但可能是較深色的緣故, Crushed Berry 比較持久.

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 4 x 30 = 120 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's, Vonvon's, PopBlush's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 4人 x 30
= 會介紹總共 120 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Vonvon, PopBlush 的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!


  1. ah! that "just in from the snow" look is pretty! :) i agree, Elaine is super nice! <3

  2. I thought this would be far too dark but it looks gorgeous on you :)

  3. I like that just-in-from-the-snow look! :) That's the thing with cream blushes, they often look dark in the pan, but once blended, turn out rather well. Ok, may be not all. ;)

    Btw, I don't know if you can still get them, MAC has a collection of 6 creme blushes, called Cremeblend Blushes that was released in March. If you have the chance to check it out, and is still available, do take a look.

  4. ahhh... i just want to let u know that i read ur blog everytime u update it!! but id unno why i cant leave u comments when im using my computer at home!! (im using work computer right now haha)
    but i love ur blush posts!! :) i love blush~ its my favorite makeup item :D

  5. Topshop in Malaysia have makeups too! I can't wait to check these blushes! =)

  6. The blush gave you a somewhat natural looking flush like you just ran a mile or so. Very pretty!

  7. pretty~! it doesn't look too dark, which is what i would worry about at first impressions. looks good on u =] <3

  8. Another "I look scary in the pan but use me and you'll love me" blushes :D This would probably be one that I'd be scared to even test in the store!

    I don't have any more long holiday breaks only a single days off here and there before school official ends at the end of june :] I can't wait!

  9. That's a pretty purplish blush! I can definitely tell you love cream blushes... hehe~

    I give you credit to swatch products at the department stores and then take pictures! I can't seem to do it because of embarrassment... hehe~ :X

  10. At first when I saw the pic of the blush I thought it might've been too deep of a color but seeing it on your face proved differently. It looks lovely =D


LOVE to hear what you think <3 I'll try my best to respond to every comment!
