Summer Blushes


Today I'm sharing with you all some of my favorite blushes that I'm enjoying so far this summer :) I had a difficult time picking, so I picked 9 (I could easily add a few more!)

Sun is shining and birds are chirping! Can you tell I love summer? :)

  10. Thanks for this! Do you think Bella Bamba and Stereo Rose are similar enough to just have one or the other?

    ReplyDelete
  11. That tarte one looks amazing! I'm loving NARS Cactus Flower cream blush lately and I like Torrid for summer too (:

    I love all the blushes you chose! They're all PERFECT for summer! I've been loving Benefit Sugarbomb and Milani Luminoso lately, but some of the other blushes I anticipate reaching for a lot in the Summer are Stereo Rose, Tipsy, Illamasqua Hussy, and Bella Bamba!

    ReplyDelete
  13. you have quite a collection!!!! My new blush addiction is peach blushes, I don't have go-to summer blushes because I'm a newbie. I wish I can have such a collection one day. heehee

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yay that's exciting! My one HG of all is definitely Illamasqua Lover. I mention it all the time :) It's just a gorgeous true peach blush. I also definitely recommend Tarte's Amazonian clay blushes, they are super long-lasting and are formulated without parabens and some other chemicals. Benefit Bella Bamba is also on HG status for me :)

  15. lol *hands you a Kleenex* Wow love your faves! I think Turks and Caicos was a limited edition right? :/ Stila Gladiola is gorgeous, I think I need to check it out in person oh and NARS Cactus Flower too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yay! :) Don't you just love the light pink glow it gives?? I find myself reaching for it quite a bit this summer, it's perfect! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thank you! Ooooh I forgot Taj Mahal, I love it but haven't actually been wearing it too much lately...I should though :) Exhibit A is gorgeous too, I think it may as well be my next NARS blush purchase :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gorgeous color! Wish we had Sleek in the states...I would probably be one of their best customers hehe

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's a gorgeous color, definitely very suitable for summer ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I did too, I was just doing a little clean up in my storage area and came across these sticks :) Oh sorry it only lasts few hours on you :/ Have you tried layering a powder blush over it? I get a better lasting power when it's layered...They were so cheap I can't even really complain they don't last long lol

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks love! Oh yes I do! :) Definitely recommend them both! I can't wait to get another one of these Tarte blushes, they are AMAZING! My absolute favorite blush out of these ones is Illamasqua Lover :) It's everything I want in a blush...perfect pigmentation, gorgeous peach color, lasts forever (not crazy about the price tag but oh well lol)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Your welcome, glad you liked it :) I love the Barry M blush, it has great pigmentation and the color is just too pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's a truly gorgeous product :) Stereo Rose is equally gorgeous, but pinker :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's pretty but I felt like I was looking too shiny wearing it :/ Glad it works for you, gorgeous color!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Me too me too! :) I don't think I can ever have enough blushes!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks girlie! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your very welcome! They look somewhat similar in swatches, but once applied on face they look really different. I think Stereo Rose gives more sheen than actual color on complexion. Bella Bamba definitely shows up better, the shimmery light pink is more noticeable and I think it makes me glow more than Stereo Rose.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It is, I love it! :) Everyone seems to be talking about Cactus Flower, hmmm why don't I have this color?? :) I will check it out asap, Torrid is lovely for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yay! Luminoso looks amazing, I think I'm just going to have to get it! Milani has been an amazing drugstore brand lately! I should check out Sugarbomb, I love me some Benefit blushes :) I knew Bella Bamba would be one of your summer favorites too :))

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh yeah, it's more than an addiction if there is such thing! :) Ok that's it, you're the third person to mention Cactus Flower, I think I will just have to buy it! :D And you're the second to mention Turks and Caicos, I need to scour all the sites I can to find that beaut! I should also check out Smashbox Radiance, I don't think I've heard of it before but I trust your taste so I am sure it's amazing! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. and this is just my favorite summer ones :) It's so exciting that you're just starting out with your collection, yay! :) Believe me, with time you will get there :) It took me a long time to build my collection and I'm sure that goes for many ladies out there. Peach blushes are definitely my favorites as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. These something about blush collections that are so cheerful! Im definitely a peachy blush person, but Ive been contemplating corals lately. I've been intrigued by Tipsy, and torrid, time and time again! Thanks for the great pics, and on an unrelated note, Muffin is adorable! I love the bellbottom look he has going on with his fur peeking out of his shirt =P

    ReplyDelete
  33. I totally agree! How can one not be happy looking at beautiful colors like peach, pink, coral?? :) Both are amazing blushes, actually if I were forced pick between the two I don't think I could! Your welcome, glad you liked them! Thanks for Muffin compliments, he's such a furball, he sports the bellbottom look quite a bit! :D

    i want to try the barry m blusher but i'm kind of hesitating whether i should because it sort of looks just a tad bit scary and chalky??? is it anyway chalky at all? pls reply.

  41. Merhaba Dilek, evet aslinda bende epeydir bahsettigin turde bi post yapmayi dusunuyordum ama zaman olmadi...en kisa zamanda yapacam bu postu. Aslinda su siralar duzenleme asamasindayim, eski yontemim surekli genisleyen makyaj koleksiyonumu kaldirmiyor artik :))

  42. Thank you! I love these two Benefit blushes and totally recommend them :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you, it took me a long time to collect all these blushes believe me! I love each and every one of them :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. In the pan it does look a bit scary as it's a bright color but once applied it's just gorgeous. It all depends on what kind of brush you use to apply these type of bright blushes. I always use a stippling brush as the bristles aren't dense. So it only picks up just the right amount of product and creates a flawless and not overly done look. I don't think it's chalky at all..

  45. It seems to be a hit on this post, it's gorgeous :)

    aww thanks for the quick reply. you totally manage to convince me to try it out. will certainly pick it up in my next shopping trip. thanks again my only problem is i don't have a stippling brush. do you think an angled brush would be alright to put this on?

  48. where did you buy barry m apricot? Do they sell barry m in the US ...I haven't seen it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I bought mine from asos.com, they don't always have Barry M blushes (because I'm looking to buy other colors so I check all the time!) but I got lucky one day! Keep checking and you may find it :) No they don't sell Barry M in the US.

  50. You picked some lovely blushes!!! ;)
    Love how intense Torrid and Barry M Apricot look! ;)
