I have recently done one of those popular "3 things about me" posts and I remember one of the questions which asked, what are 3 beauty products you won't leave the house without? My answer unfortunately didn't include blush but I do love my blushes! I actually wear them everyday for a little hint of color. Below you will see my favorite ones that I use quite often, my favorite blush of all time is Peachykeen by MAC, I just can't get enough of it! :)
is a coral/pink colored blush, which I think would look great with any complexion. It has a slight sheen to it but it's nothing over the top, it's definitely an everyday type of blush. Gives off a perfect glow, can be worn by itself or over foundation/powder. Comes with it's own little brush too! Added bonus: It smells divine!
is my favorite blush for years now. As you can see I have many other blushes but for some reason there is something about this peach color that makes me keep going back to it! Shows up perfectly when worn over bronzer, looks great on tanned skin. I love to wear this during summer, especially! It has a bit of gold shimmer to it.
is a blush I picked up randomly at a drugstore which then I grew to love. It's a fairly light baby peach color and is matte. Pairs beautifully with smokey eyes and nude lips. Has a little pop up mirror and it's own brush which is perfect when you want to take it along (that way you don't need to carry a mirror + a brush! :))
is the newest blush in my collection but I love it regardless! It's a shimmery peach colored pressed blush and very versatile, you can use it as part of a natural or dramatic look. Doesn't have as much shimmer as Orgasm which was a bit too much for me. Perfect for a fresh and flushed look! In my case doesn't show up too well over bronzer, so I do multiple sweeps.
is a very pigmented barbie/candy pink colored blush. Definitely the most pigmented blush I own. You really need to dip your brush a little in this blush and you will have the perfect color on your cheeks. I go easy on everything else when I use it because it can be too much otherwise, unless you're going for that kind of look.
is a mosaic blush with all sorts of colors that I purchased a long time ago, they don't even make them anymore. But that doesn't mean I won't show it love! Comes off more peachy than pink, has medium shimmer and shows up perfect over bronzer.
Price: $14.50 (maybe? Currently they have blush trios at VS if you're interested)
was purchased years ago and is lasting me forever! It's a very very pigmented cotton candy/baby pink blush and also doubles up as an eye-shadow and looks great both ways! I love to sweep this on my cheeks, looks gorgeous with smokey eyes or any dark eye make-up and pink lips. I need a (permanent) dupe for this immediately!
Price: I have no idea and not that it matters since it was part of a collection back then.
is a natural (as in without many chemicals including parabens) cheek stain that provides that just-pinched color on cheeks. Color is a sheer baby pink with just a bit of shimmer. It's the only cheek stain I own so it has a special place in my heart. I love that it looks so natural when applied. However applying can be a bit tricky since you literally only have 30 seconds to smear it the way you want, after that it will "stain" your cheek and stay that way. Unfortunately this is another discontinued product I own but I'm sure I will find a good replacement for it when the time comes.
Price: Was $28-30.
is a rosey pink creme blush which goes on pretty sheer. Bright on pan but looks pretty natural on cheeks (of course you can adjust depending on the look) after applying. Better applied with a stippling brush than fingers. In fact it's pretty difficult to apply with fingers because it just stays in one spot. Does last all day, perfect for a dewy pink glow!
Do you have any blush suggestions for me that I'm totally missing out on? What is your go-to blush?
