Oh Stop it! You’re making me blush!

Here is the third part of my makeup series: Cheekies!

If you haven’t seen my other parts, here are the links: Part 1, Part 2

Okay, so I’m a bit of a blush fiend.  I seriously have way too much and here’s a confession:  I have never completely finished a blush before!  There’s just so much product that I get sick of it before I finish it.

Here are all my blushes (theBalm’s downboy not pictured):

Nars “Orgasm” (Sample Size)- A cult favorite.  It’s gorgeous, but I tend to like matte colors more.  Although it’s glittery in the pan, it doesn’t make your cheeks glittery but instead leaves a healthy glow.  I definitely see why people think of this as a “holy grail” product, but I don’t know if I would buy the full-size as the sample size is quite generous and will probably last me 2 years.

E.L.F. “Fuchsia Fusion”– My favorite drugstore blush!  It’s super pigmented and adds a beautiful pop of color and for $3.00, you can’t go wrong (or rather you won’t regret it!)

Benefit “Sugarbomb”-This is more of a highlighter/blush combination.  It’s quite shimmery and not that pigmented but is still very pretty.  If you’re going for a healthy, peachy, and glowy cheek look, this one is for you!

Chanel “Rose Ecrin”– My everyday blush.  It’s a muted color that is buildable, but will never look like too much!  It’s silky texture blends into my skin so easily and effortlessly and looks so natural that I can’t help but absolutely adore it!

theBalm “Cabana Boy“-A super pigmented purplish blush (but you can blend it out). Not powdery and can be buildable (if you really want to).  It has a touch of shimmer in it and good when you want your cheeks to be very noticeable.

theBalm “Frat Boy“- About the same formula as Cabana Boy but a peachy/corally color.  It’s pigmentation is good, it hits the sweet spot between being a tad too sheer and a tad too bold.

theBalm “Down Boy”(Not pictured)- Again, the same formula but more of a plummy shade.  My favorite out the three, but I left it in Boston with my boyfriend so I probably won’t see it til March or so (:().

So that is all my blush and as always, thank you for reading!  For my enemies out there, yes, blush is my kryptonite!

 

What is your favorite blush?
