Clinique Cheek Pop and Butter London Cheeky Cream Blush both give an extraordinary pop of colour and are easy-to-apply creams. While Daniel Sandler's Watercolour Fluid Blush is an award-winning make-up artist staple that stays put longer than any other I tried. For pure affordability and longevity, Bourjois Rose D'Or is a best-selling shade in their famous little round pot that's been around for 150 years.
