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