Make Up Collection: Blushes

I already showed you all of my lip products in a few separate posts, here, here and here. This time we’ll move up the face and it’s time for blushes. Here are the ones I have, I will indicate which ones are my favorites as we go along.

***Warning*** This post is picture heavy. I’m only posting pictures of the opened products, so you can see the different colors. To also show you what the cases look like would turn this into a 5 week series of blushes, which I find a bit too much. To give you an idea of most of the packaging: see the picture below.

General overview of all my blushes

Benefit box powders in Coralista, Dandelion & Sugarbomb

Benefit box powders in Georgio & Bella Bamba

I love love LOVE Benefit box powders. These are some of my favorite blushes. They last you a life time and the colors are amazing. From very subtle peach to in your face pink: you can go a long way with these. They are pricy though, hence I bought a few of these on Ebay. No clue whether they are genuine, most likely they are not, but they work: they are pigmented and go on as smoothly as the ones I bought at a Benefit counter, so I’m not complaining.

NYX powder blush in Angel and Taupe (top row)

NYX cream blush in Boho Chic, Tea rose and Rose Petal

Favorites: Taupe (for contouring) & Boho Chic.

Sephora blush in Romantic Rose Rose Rebelle (top)

Sephora blush in Meringue Jalouse & Framboise Attraction (middle)

Sephora blush in Abricot Plaisir & Coral Frisson (bottom)

Favorites: Abricot Plaisir & Framboise Attraction. The top two are very nice as well as they are fully matte and go on very natural.

Sleek blush in Coral & Scandalous (top row)

Sleek blush in Pan-Tao & Pomegranate (bottom row)

Sleek blushes are also amazing. They go on smoothly, aren’t that expensive, but are pigmented like there is no tomorrow. These should all be handled with care when you are as fair-skinned as me, especially the bright red one! Apparently the bright red Scandalous is a dupe for a NARS blush in Exhibit A. Two of these are limited edition (Scandalous & Pan-Tao) so they might be hard to find.

MAC powder blush in Margin (frost) & Shisheido RD 103 (top)

NARS Sex Appeal & Orgasm (bottom)

Again, two of my favorite blushes in this lot: MAC Margin & NARS Orgasm. Two very nice go to blushes. The MAC one warms up my face nicely and give it a good glow. And what can I say about Orgasm? Well, I think that this blush should be in every make up lover’s stash (or NARS Deep Throat, Sleek Rose Gold or any other dupe that is out there). This color is amazing.

NYC Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder in Pink Cheek Glow & Catrice Tickled Pink (LE – Expect the Unexpected) (top)

Eyeko blush in My Coral Crush & Beauty UK blusher/ bronzer in BE 2074/3 (bottom)

The Body Shop Cheek Blush Shade in Golden Coral & Bourjois Blush in Rose D’Or & Rose Coup de Foudre (left, top to bottom)

The Body Shop Cheek Bloom Shade in Dune Pink & Desert Rose (right, top to bottom)

Benefit Lip & Cheek Stain Bene Tint & 2True Cheek ‘n’ Lip Tint in Blush Pink

ELF (Eyes Lips Face) All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade, Persimmon & Golden Peach (f.l.t.r.)

These can be used not only as blush, but also as a highlight. That’s what I use Persimmon for mostly. The other two are very nice to just take with you on the go or when you are staying somewhere for the night. At only 1 euro a piece I think these are worth having.

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in Berry, Peach & Apricot

The replacements for the popular Dream Mousse blushes. Super pigmented and hard to work with, but they go on very smoothly. You do need a very very light hand with these.

ELF (Eyes Lips Face) Studio Line Blush in Mellow Mauve and Berry Merry

Two of my favorite blushes! I especially love Berry Merry.

ELF (Eyes Lips Face) Mineral Blush in Bliss

Q: Well, I have told you about my favorite blushes. Now I’m curious: what are yours?

      NARS orgasm en quasi alle NYX blushes staan ook op mijn wishlist, jammer dat je die in België niet kan krijgen!
      Waar heb jij je NYX producten gekocht, als ik vragen mag?

      1. indiequeen84 says:

        Ik heb ze een aantal jaar geleden gekocht bij Boozyshop en een aantal dingen heb ik uit Amerika meegebracht van de zomer. In NL mag inmiddels geen NYX meer verkocht worden via internet omdat het inmiddels hier in de Douglas in Amsterdam ligt.

      Aw jaloers! Stereo Rose staat nog op mijn verlanglijstje 🙂
