Hello my lovelies,
My next installment of my Top 3 Series is: Blushers. I love blusher, there is nothing better than sweeping your cheeks with a bit of powder to create a rosy cheek look. There aren’t many times that I apply make up and not wear blush. I think it adds colour to your face but by no means looking fake. I own an awful lot of blushes so it was pretty hard to choose just 3 that I couldn’t live without.
The Balm – Fratboy see here
First off The Balm’s packaging is so cute. It’s very different to a lot of brands it has a retro feel to it that I just love. It’s quirky and different. It also has a decent sized mirror in it which I think is a massive plus with any product. This is pretty much a matte blusher, with a hint of glitter but I really don’t think this transfers onto the skin. It just aids the blusher to catch the light.
The colour I would describe as a baby pink shade. I wouldn’t say its a bright in your face shade that you wouldn’t be able to pull off on a day to day basis. You would notice this on the cheeks, but is very easy to blend depending on what look you are going for. The blusher is extremely pigmented and little truly does go a long way!
The only down to side to this really is that it’s made out of cardboard so it may be prone to breaking especially if it is in your handbag, but saying that mine is going strong and I have had this for well over a year now.
Milani – Powder Blush in 05 Coral Cove see here
I know Milani as a brand is pretty tricky to get hold of in the UK and I brought this at IMATs a few years ago but the brand is pretty impressive. If you can get your hands on this I would really recommend trying something out from the brand. The packaging is simple, yet elegant. The indentation of the blush itself is pretty impressive, I believe it is a rose it makes the blush that little bit more special.
The blush gives itself away by the name ‘Coral Cove’ I don’t have too many coral shades in my collection but I don’t think I need to because I am so impressed with this one. This is more of a summer shade and I don’t wear it during the colder months but as soon as the sun is shining this is applied straight away. Again this is a matte blusher which gives a coral swipe to the cheeks and makes them pop. This especially looks amazing with a tan!
Bourjois – 54, Rose Frisson see here
First off, how cute is this!? Small yet very cute! The packaging is pretty sturdy and it comes with a mirror, what more could you want! This is a beautiful rose pink shade which has a slight hint of glitter which catches the light beautifully to give you that extra glow on your cheeks.
This is a very soft shade which I wear on a daily basis as it just works on my skin to give that subtle bit of colour that I am lacking within my cheeks. This blush would be perfect for anyone wanting to delve into the world of blush with something that is not overpowering. This is a shade that I wear near enough wear on a daily basis because it is so easy to use and you can never go overboard with the product, but if you do it really does blend like a dream!
Let me know if you have tried any of these blushes that I have mentioned and what you think of them!
