I Heart Blush!

What can i say? I absolutely adore blush! It's one make-up product i must have with me. I have quite a few blushes, however these three are my favourites.

1. Illamasqua Cream Blusher - Rude
2. MAC Powder Blush - Well Dressed
3.NARS Cream Blush - Penny Lane

1. This blush is a true orangey coral with no shimmer, just pure pigment. And speaking of pigment... this blush is by far the most pigmented cream blush in the world. The smallest dab is enough for both cheeks. It also gives you that dewy glow without adding any glitter or shimmer (i prefer matte finishes). Plus it doesn't fade through out the day at all and it's the prettiest colour on the lips.

2. This is the first blush I have ever purchased, and it's still a fave. That's gotta say something, right? This blush is a cool toned pink with a little bit of  shimmer, nothing too drastic. It gives the most natural flush to the face. Perfect for school and work. 

3. If you haven't noticed yet, i love cream blush. I would use a cream blush over powder any day. This blush is a nude rose peach colour, with a tad bit of glitter. This cream blush is the opposite of the Illamasqua one. It goes on with the smoothness of a cream, but dries to the finish of a powder blush. But formulation wise, NARS fails. It does not last all say and applies kind of patchy looking. Since it gives such a warm glow to the skin I can forgot all that stuff.

1. $24                     2. $20                   3. $29

These swatches do not give these blushes any justice.
They are so much prettier in person.
