i've been on the hunt for a great blush for spring. i love that "just worked out" flush but i've always had trouble finding just the right shade of pink that would make me look fabulous, not scary clown-like.
check out my goodies:
i've never worn a peach/apricot color on my skin mainly because i never thought about wearing a warm color like that before. i've always stuck to pinky colors like orgasm (NARS) or a light coral (like bobbi brown's cabo coral pot rouge). although i'm a complete makeup whore, i have trouble matching colors to my skin tone however, i wanted to try something different. after a few recommendations (and great reviews on makeup alley), i picked up the NARS luster blush at sephora. it's not as shimmery as orgasm but it's a light, pretty apricot - perfect for the office. when you first swipe it on, you can hardly notice it so it's a good layering blush. i find that it doesn't give much oomph on it's own but dusted over a cream blush like cabo coral and now, my new stila peony, it looks amazing; as if i just finished exercising. winning.
earlier this week, i picked up the stila convertible cream blush in peony. the packaging is adorable and light and the color is a dusty rose that is creamy so you have to warm it up with fingers in order to blend properly. i have asian medium-toned skin and this color against my skin was the perfect shade of pink; nearly the exact color of my cheeks turn when i get flushed. my intent was to try this with my NARS orgasm blush, but i was in the car waiting for hubs and had my Luster blush handy so i dusted some of that on top of this color and to my surprise, it was a gorgeous shade. so gorgeous that i almost had sex with my reflection and couldn't stop looking at myself.
what's your favorite blush?
