My Favourite Blushers


Left to Right: Stila Blusher in 'Self-Adjusting Coral', I ♡ Makeup Triple Baked Blusher in 'Blushing Hearts', Mac Mineralize Blush in 'Gleeful', Clinique Cheek Pop in 'Peach Pop 02'


Stila Custom Colour Blush in 'Self-Adjusting Coral




Purchased a while ago in a Feel Unique haul is the Stila custom colour blush in 'Self Adjusting Coral'. This blusher is extremely pigmented so you need a really light hand when applying it. I would say there is quite a bit of fallout with this blusher and it is very loose so do beware! With a small hint of gold shimmer I loved applying this blush in the summer time as it was weightless and even gave me a hint of "glow". This blush is supposedly one that reacts and customizes to the wearers skin tone therefore making it the blusher for your skin, and you no longer have to "guess or wear the wrong colour blush). The one negative thing I would say about this blush is that on every single website photo, it is a lot more pink than the photos suggest. Many of the photos make it look a lot more orange-based, but I did not find this the case when I opened it!

 Makeup Triple Baked Blusher Blushing Hearts in 'Bursting With Love'



Mostly well known for it's incredible likeliness to the Too Faced's "Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush',
is the very affordable I ♡ Makeup blush. This blusher has three gorgeous pink shades including a lavender, baby pink and a dark bright pink. I tend to mix the three blushers together as it creates this gorgeous light pink tone. Although it doesn't swatch well and may not look too pigmented, for £5 I absolutely loved this product for a long time. The one nice thing about a blush that isn't too intense, is that it is more buildable and appears more natural on the cheeks! If you're looking for an affordable blusher that also looks hella cute in photos, I've found it for you!

Mac Mineralize Blush in 'Gleeful' 



As talked about in my Mac Haul post a while ago, I've been obsessed with this blush. Now that Autumn is descending on us, evident by Instagram's flurry of #Autumn - I have moved away from my pink based blushers to this gorgeous plum blusher. This blusher has a hint of brick read breaking through it which makes it perfect for the colder season. Pairing this with berry lips is a must and although my photo above may make it look very sparkly and shiny, when applies to your face, it's hardly noticeable. When I was in the store (it was an outlet as well (so PROUD)), I was incredible nervous picking it up. Due to the dark colour I was hesitant and never thought it would suit me, but after all, when most of us blush, it tends to be red not pink! Writing this post just makes me want to forever swatch and gawk at it.

Clinique Cheek Pop in 'Peach Pop 02' 




I picked up this Clinique blush at the same time as my Stila blush - I was going on a bit of a blusher rampage blatantly. Although it may not look as pretty as it did before, this is only a sign of my underlying love and attention to it. I hated to make a dent in the beautiful flower but it's just too wonderful! I would say that out of all the lighter peach toned blushers that I own and this one suits my skin tone the most. It applies so beautifully without being patchy, which can be easily done with a blusher. The blush gives off a little shimmer without making you look like a disco ball and swatches as nicely on my hand as it does sit on my cheeks.

So there's a list of my favourite blushers from various brands and price ranges! I'd love to hear what your favourite blushers are and if you too love the same ones as I do!

  2. I really really love the I <3 Make Up blush! I have all of them too and the lavender one is definitely my favorite!
    I also have the Stila one but that one I'm not a fan of, as you say is super pigmented so I'm always scared to use it!

    Great blog!

    1. The clinique ones are as beautiful as they are raved about but they are that little bit on the pricier side for the small size! xx
