The Blusher Edit

The Blusher Edit
I've got a selection of my favourite blushers for you all today. As you can see, I'm extra adventurous  when it comes to blushers and have a huge variety of shades in baby doll pink, peach, baby doll pink and um, peach. Jokes aside, the lack of variety wasn't intentional I've obviously just found the right shades to suit my skin tone.

I feel that with all the current focus on contouring and highlighting, blusher has been put to the bottom of the pile a little bit. If I'm applying a full face of make up I never miss out the blusher stage, I love having a rosy glow! Let's get crackin' with my favourites:

MAC Pink Swoon Powder Blush- I've hit the pan...I think this is a good indication of my love for this blusher. When I first purchased this I was a little worried at how bright it was but it blends so well. I do prefer subtle blusher but it's easily buildable if you are a fan of a more intense look.

Clinque Cheek Pop in Plum- Such a luxurious blusher. I love how pigmented it is, it's almost a cream to powder consistency. I love the floral design and packaging too, so pretty! Clinque have got it spot on with these launches and I think it will remain as one of my favourite blushers for a long time to come.

Kiko Creamy Stick Blush 04 Hot Pink- I'm a powder girl through and through when it comes to blusher but I got this little beauty in a Glossybox and was really impressed with it. I don't normally get on with cream blushers as I can't stand them moving your already applied make up around your cheeks. I didn't have that problem with this product and the colour is beautiful.

MAC Peachykeen Powder Blush- Another beautiful shimmer blush. I love applying this for a night out as the shimmer adds a little bit of glamour. I find that it looks beautiful with highlighter as the shimmers compliment each other. This colour is more intense than the others but I prefer this for a night time look.

Sleek Shimmer Blush Rose Gold- I purchased this one on the back of the blogger hype. I'm normally dubious about hyped products but I knew I was going to love this one. What is not to love about Rose Gold and shimmer?! Sleek have got the amount of shimmer just right so my cheeks aren't looking like glitter balls and it gives such a beautiful glow. If I'm honest, it's pretty much a dupe for MAC Peachykeen and there is next to no difference in the quality either.

Do you own any of these blushers? What are your favourite blushers? Let me know in the comments below!

    1. I was really surprised with it! It's a 'velvet' consistency so I got on better with it compared to normal cream blushers xxx

  6. I sadly don't own any of these blushers but I absolutely adore my Max Factor crème puff blush. It's the most beautiful soft pink colouring and looks incredible.

    Lovely post.
