I know the majority of my makeup collection and looks are all focused around the eyes. Eyeshadows, Liners, and Mascaras galore!
So I've decided to show you my small, but growing collection of blushes!
Blush is a wonderful product, after blanking out all of your imperfections with foundation and concealer, blush brings little bit of color and life back into your face.
|Too Faced Leopard Love Complexion Perfection Palette|
This was one of the FIRST products I ever purchased blush/bronzer wise. I couldn't get over how cute it was! While it's not available anymore (on Sephora.com or TooFaced.com) I believe all of these products are sold separately in full size. It includes a mini of Peach Leopard Bronzer, which is unfortunately too dark/orange for me (duh), Candy Leopard Blush, which is a gorgeous candy pink shimmery blush, and Pink Leopard Highlighter. Pink Leopard may be a great highlight on darker skin tones, but due to how fair I am, you can almost see the brownish specks on my cheeks, not cute! Overall only the Candy Leopard shade really works for me, which is why I haven't really used this palette much at all!
|Tarte Off The Cuff Blush Palette|
I got this gorgeous palette this year for Christmas, and I am IN LOVE with it. It includes one bronzer in the shade Park Avenue Princess, and four blushes in the shades Crave, Dazzled, Darling, and Dollface. I haven't even touched the bronzer, since I don't use it, but I've used and loved all of the blush shades. Darling is one of my favorites to wear with any eye/lip look.
|Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush in Smooth Talker|
THIS, is what I use for 'contouring'. Yes. This. I am just THAT fair-skinned. These shades mix together perfectly to create a darker, but still warm and pink-toned shade that is just a perfect contour color for me without being too brown, too orange, or too harsh. I've gone through an ENTIRE one of these, and I'm on my second one. It's very similar, but I believe less shimmery than Benefit's Sugarbomb boxed blush. Can't beat the drugstore price tag either!
|Victoria's Secret Cheek Love Powder Blush|
Found this little gem last year at their semi-annual sale. It's a beautiful baby pink color, without being too harsh or ashy looking. It's mostly matte, but has a slight hint of shimmer in certain light. Not enough to give a highlighting effect though. This is one of my go-to blushes, but unfortunately it's been discontinued! =[
|Too Faced Sweetheart Blush in Candy Glow|
When I saw Too Faced preview these last spring/winter, I had to have it. Just for the packaging alone. This is the original shade Candy Glow, but I believe there have been two new shades added to the Sweetheart line recently! While a bit sheer, this blush is just gorgeous. All three shades mix together for a perfectly pink flush on my skin. It's got shimmer in it, so it can double as a highlighting blush on darker skin tones as well. Over anything, I just love seeing this cute little box sitting on my makeup desk.
|NARS Deep Throat Blush|
It wouldn't be a blush blog without NARS. Of the few I've tried, Deep Throat is my favorite shade. (Can you tell? My package is literally in two pieces) It's a beautiful peachy pink blush with amazing shimmer in it. Looks so pretty on my skin, and compliments any look I wear.
|NARS Orgasm Blush|
Andddd it wouldn't be a REAL blush blog without NARS Orgasm blush. This is just a mini guy I got as a Sephora perk. I'm honestly glad I didn't give into the hype and buy a full size, because despite this being like the #1 blush, it doesn't suit me that well. It's slightly darker, and slightly more peach than Deep Throat, and along with the strong gold shimmer, it can be just a little too intense on my extremely porcelain skin. However, I'm happy to have a mini size of it, just to say I own it!
And that's IT for my blushes that I currently own! I'm definitely becoming more and more interested in the fun world of blushes, and can't wait to add some more to my collection. What are some of your favorite blushes that you own? What are some you're just dying to try?
