Its the weekend finally, its gloomy outside. Im sitting here drinking a cup of tea and blogging. Today, I will be talking about blushes. I would be happy to share my blush collection. I don't have a lot, but I want to expand my blush collection.
There are different types of blushes, so consider the type of blush best suited for your skin; cream blushes works really well for people who have drier skin, as it can help keep skin hydrated. Powder blush is best suited for oily skin, as the powder sucks in the oil on your face.
You can definitely use different kinds of brushes, but I recommend using a round brush for powder blushes and use your fingers to apply cream blushes. I use a round brush to apply powder blushes because it applies softer and gives me a more professional look.
How to apply a blush: Blushes are meant to be applied on the apples of your cheeks, so smile and apply your blush on the circles of your cheeks. I would also apply a tiny amount of blush left on your brush all over the face,
So enough with the sermon, and here are my blush collection.
Top: MAC Dame, Well Dressed, Pink Swoon
Middle: MAC Instant Chic
Bottom: MAC Dainty, MAC Hipness
MAC Azalea Blossom
Maybeline Dream Mousse Blush
Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Blush
From L-R: MAC Dame, Well Dressed, Pink Swoon
Dame- Rosy pinkish color. I rarely use this, but if ever I use it I apply another lighter toned blush then put Dame on top.
Well Dressed- A baby doll pink with slight sheen to it.A total must have for every make-up junkie. I would definitely tell everyone to get their hands on this one because it is versatile. I use it every single day and top it of with another darker blush on top.
Pink Swoon- Pink with subtle lilac undertone to it. This is also one of my favourite blush. I had this fro over 6 months already. I always use this along side Well Dressed. Another must have for every girl who wants a pinkish toned blush.
From L-R: Instant Chic, Hipness, Dainty
Instant Chic- this blush is from Pret-a-Papier. I absolutely in love with this blush. This is my only peachy toned blush. I need to get my hands on Ripe Peach from the Spring Forecast collection. I need more peachy blushes. Any recommendations?
Hipness- From MAC to the Beach collection. Another pink blush. Im not totally in love with this blush. I would say that I like it because it is pink, that's about it.
Dainty- This is my only mineralized blush. I heard a lot of good reviews on this so I got it. Very satisfied because it is not like any other mineralized blush. Mineralized blushes are too shimmery for me, but Dainty is not. Love it.
Maybeline Dream Mousse Blush 01- This is another pink blush. I have probably 5 pink blushes. Shame on me. haha. I do not like this blush because it breaks me out. I love the color definitely, but it sucks to be me. I would frequently use this just because cream blushes and liquid blushes expires quickly compared to powder blushes.
Swatch of Maybeline Dream Mousse in 01
Prestige Skin Loving Blush- I forgot the name of this particular blush. Sorry. The name is not at the back anymore, it faded. This blush is really shimmery. Really love the gold veinings on it. I bought this because it look super pretty on the pan.
Swatch for Prestige Skin Loving Mineral Blush
This is the Azalea Blossom it is a blush ombre from the Spring Forecast collection. If you have this blush, you would know that the color fades out. I really like this one. I just swirl my brush just on top up until the middle portion to get a little lilac to it. I think Ripe Peach is better compared to this one. I really want to get Ripe Peach. I should hunt for it.
From L-R: Swirled on top, swirled on the middle, swirled on the bottom part of the blush
Swirled all around
I forgot to include the ever famous NARS Orgasm Blush- This is my first blush ever. I would assume everyone knows about it. Its a pinky peach blush with subtle glitter and a golden sheen to it. NARS said: NARS Orgasm makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer. The perennially pleasing, universally flattering shade is again and again a makeup artist and beauty editor favorite. I can;t say anything because this blush has been really a cult's favourite.
Next blushes to buy:
NARS Penny Lane(cream)
NARS Deep Throat
MAC Pinch O Peach
MUFE Liquid HD blush- I love to try their HD blush!
What would be your next blush purchase? Mine would definitely be NARS Penny Lane and MUFE Liquid HD Blush.
