You saw most of my favourites and I promised a separate post on blushes. Here it is! I’m just going through them quickly, since I must have talked a lot about MOST of them last year… These are my most used blushes, new or old, so I hope you enjoy!
First, let’s start with something warm.
There’s a bright coral in Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral. It makes me look so bright and happy, this is my absolute favourite. There’s a coral from Dior, a trio from Lancome and another trio from Estee Lauder. Lancome Blush Subtil palette is more balanced, with 2 blushes (a lighter and a darker one) and very pretty subtle highlighter. Review will come some time in the future. The EL one is a little dark, and I usually avoid the stripe on the left, but with a light hand and fluffy brush, everything’s good.
Moving on to something cool? Yes please…
Not all are peachy or coral-y. Roses, pinks and reds are gorgeous too! My favourite pink is NARS Deep Throat though I loath the packaging. Chanel Tumulte has surprisingly stolen my heart and Bobbi Brown Pale Pink is yet another pot rouge. What’s with me and these pot rouge eh? Weird. Then, the dark and mysterious Chanel Rouge. It has to make an appearance. It’s so deep and rich but looks so good on the skin.
If you’re not feeling warm or cool, then maybe something neutral is up your alley? They’re so easy to wear, go with anything and everything so in my opinion, every girl should have at least a neutral blush.
MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush gives just a tint of warmth on my cheeks. The Lunasol cream blush is similar but lighter and with a whiter base. Rouge Bunny Rouge in Starina is the perfect nude blush which is like skin but peachier. Dior Rose Brazilia looks all sorts of pink and coral, but you know what? Swirl the brush on the whole thing and it’s really neutral! When I have no idea what to wear, I’d pick this. I’m sorry it’s a limited edition though. If only I knew, I’d get a back up!
There were a few others I used throughout the year, but these were the ones I reached for. I never thought I had that many blushes, but erm yeah… oops! What are some of your favourite blushes?
