Continuing my makeup inventory, today’s post is on blushes! Check out my other mid-year makeup roundup!
Current blush inventory:
- 10 powder blushes +1 Smashbox palette I haven’t touched
- 1 cheek & lip stain
I think it’s safe to say that I won’t be needing blush any time soon. I won’t be purchasing any new blushes until I finish at least 5. I have a combo of matte and shimmery shades. Shimmery shades can be nice for the daytime during the summer, but I feel like they’re more for the night time. I think next time I buy blushes, I will get matte shades because you can use highlighter to add shimmer.
Bobbi Brown Blush in French Pink & Nectar – French Pink is the hot pink shade on the left. Both are beautiful shades.- great for summer time!
Burt’s Bees Blush in 1210 Shy Pink – I received this from Topbox Circle along with a bunch of other Burt’s Bees products and I’m so glad I did! I love this blush and it’s from the drugstore too!
Bella Pierre Mineral Blush in MB002 Autumn Glow – This was the first blush I bought that wasn’t from the drugstore…in fact, it may be time to declutter/dispose of it (I bought it when I was in university :/). It’s really pretty, but since it is more of a brown shade, I use it in the Fall/Winter. I don’t really like that it’s a loose powder, it takes up so much more space and it’s more messy than a regular, pressed blush.
Miniso Flawless Baked Blusher in 02 Rosy Pink in 02 Rosy Pink – You can’t get any better than this Miniso blush. It was $2.99 and it’s such a beautiful, shimmery pink.
Milani Baked Blush in 01 Dolce Pink – This is so pretty, it’s a gorgeous, shimmery pink.
Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush in 03 Pink Ingenue – Since this is in a ‘kit/palette,’ I tend to forget about it. It’s a beautiful pink though and I need to use it more often.
The Estée Edit The Barest Blush in 03 Purr Pink – this is a very bright pink and I need to use a very light hand with this. I few times I put way too much on and looked like a clown. I’ve had to dab my face with my sponge to add some of the residual foundation to dial it down.
Smashbox Blush Soft Lights Duo in Passion/Shimmer – I like that this is a 2-in-1 blush and highlighter. 2-in-1 is great for travelling and this is a very nice mauvy pink.
Smashbox L.A. Lights Palette in Culver City Coral – I haven’t touched this palette (I didn’t swatch it below), but I’m excited to use it. Once I finish a few blushes, I will take it out.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty & Concept -I love the Tarte blushes. This one that came in the Sephora birthday present is so pretty for a naturally blushed look. I haven’t used the shade Concept yet.
Bella Pierre Cheek and Lip Stain in Coral – I haven’t used this much because I don’t know if I love cream blushes that much. Sometimes cream products just make my face feel oily. Maybe I’ll use it as a lip stain and sheer it out with vaseline.
I think my favourites are Tarte, Burt’s Bees, Miniso and Milani. Surprisingly, the higher end ones swatched a bit patchy.
I really want to buy a NARS and a Physician’s Formula blush. If you read my post on Beauty Recommendations from Instagrammers, I was recommended a few different blushes to try.
What are your fave blushes?
