My Favourite Five Blushers

Blusher follows close behind lipstick as one of my all time makeup weaknesses, I could spend hours swatching every shade of pink and peach under the sun until I find the right one for me but I always seem to come back to the same five over and over again. I personally tend to stick to pink blushers, with the occasional peachy tone thrown in for good measure. I just think a pink blusher is an absolute staple and with the right shade can provide that light flush to the cheeks that your makeup needs. I've chosen fives shades from my collection that I think everyone should try at some point in their life.





Too Faced Sweetheart Blush | Peach Beach: First things first can we just appreciate how adorable this packaging is? Too Faced always seem to pull it out of the bag with their colours and designs! Though you can't really tell from the photographs, this blush has three shimmery shades, ranging from a peach, through to a pink and then a champagne gold. When swirled together and applied to the cheeks they give the most beautiful radiant glow to the skin, like you've just got back from a week holiday to Spain. I especially love this blusher when I'm fake tanned, It makes me feel like I'm glowing from within.



MAC Powder Blush | Fleur Power: This is the newest addition to my MAC blushers, a really delicate pink, perfect in my opinion for those with fairer skin. MAC blushers are incredibly pigmented, so I like to start off light with this and then build it up as I see fit. This will definitely be seeing it's fair share of use throughout Winter and Spring to give the cheeks that rosy appearance you'd get from being out in the cold. Really really pretty.

MAC Sheertone Blush | Peaches: Another extremely pigmented blush from MAC despite being a sheertone blush. This is probably the most peachy shade I own and like the Too Faced blush, I especially love this when my skin is slightly more tanned as I personally don't think this works when I'm paler. I've never had any issues with the longevity of my MAC blushers either, once they're on I find they're there to stay. Both of these MAC blushers are matte.




NARS | Deepthroat: Having always admired NARS's Orgasm from afar I was slightly disappointed when visiting Space NK that I really didn't like it when swatched. For me it was just far too glittery and similar to the next blush I'm going to talk about. The wonderful girl that worked there then pointed me in the direction of Deepthroat. It's a light pink shade with an ever so slight shimmer and gives such a natural looking pop of colour to the cheek. This can be quite sheer which helps to keep it all looking very natural but can easily be built up to create a more dramatic look. (I also adore NARS packaging, anything matte gets my approval.)

Sleek | Rose Gold: This is the aforementioned shade that I would compare to NARS's Orgasm. This blusher is intense, very shimmery and at times slightly chunky but with a light hand looks gorgeous on the cheeks. It gives such a glow that it almost acts like a blush and highlight in one and you really can't go wrong for the price of these.

  5. I absolute love NARS packaging too! It's so simple and chic. I have a dupe for the NARS Orgasm blush too from e.l.f., so I've never had any desire to get that one either. That Deepthroat (omg I hate these names haha) shade looks amazing though! Beautiful pictures!

    1. Orgasm was just too intense for me, the one from Sleek though intense, is a much better price point haha! Thank you for reading :)
