Top 6 Blushes

I'm back! Whew! It's been a week since I last made a post. I'm still adjusting to waking up early in the morning and going to work. I'm used to working at night. Anyway, I am stressed at work. Well, mostly because I had to learn a lot of new things and I had a lot of adjusting to do. After one week of work, a new colleague and I de-stressed last night by having early dinner at Fazoli's where I had my favorite pesto and then went to a bar for a couple of beers. There are 5 of us newbies. 2 girls, 1 guy, and 2 gays. I love gays! They're so much fun to be with. And one of them is even 6'1" tall and dresses like a girl. They're so funny. :P Anyway, I want to go back to regular blogging, which I hope I can do starting next week. :)

So anyway, I'd like to share with you guys what my Top 6 blushes are. They are my absolute favorites. I told myself I wouldn't play any favorites so I can use all the blushes but I can't help it. :P




My Top 6:
1. Chanel Irreelle Blush in In Love
2. NARS Taos
3. Chanel Joues Contraste in Tea Rose
4. NARS Deep Throat
5. MAC Mineralize Blush Grand Duo in Intenso
6. Benefit Coralista



Why these are my Top 6


1. Chanel Irreelle Blush in In Love

It imparts a really gorgeous warm coral pink colour on my cheeks that looks natural. It doesn't look fake and it works well with my skintone. A little goes a long way too. Doesn't take much to show on me. And it contours my face well too, without the need of using bronzer or contouring powder. This is absolutely my HG blush! :)

2. NARS Taos

If it is flushed cheeks I want, I go for this blush. It gives a really natural flush on my cheeks, the one that I usually get when I am beat or if I am flustered. Not to mention the fact that I only had to lightly dab my stippling brush on the pan and I'm good to go with both cheeks. A little goes a long way.

3. Chanel Joues Contraste in Tea Rose

This does the job for me if I want lightly rose/pink-colored cheeks. Though it is not as pigmented as I want it to be, I am cool with it because I use this for a really light dusting of color on my cheeks. The smell is the only thing that in a way turns me off.

4. NARS Deep Throat

The only peach-toned blush that works for me. Peaches usually look muddy on me, I dunno why. But this looks really pretty on my cheeks. It looks natural sans the shimmer. I use this on days I feel like being a minimalist on make up.

5. MAC Mineralize Blush Grand Duo in Intenso

A lovely medium berry shade with shimmer with a peach and gold-toned highlighter. I can't emphasize enough how gorgeous this one is! The veins are really pretty too. Like its name, Intenso, the colour payoff is really intense. I badly need a stippling brush on this one, otherwise, I'll end up looking like Raggedy Ann doll. Too bad it's LE.

6. Benefit Coralista

Though it's not my HG blush, it managed to hang by a thread on my Top 6. I am a bit disappointed with its staying power but how it looks on me is something I had to consider. I am sure there are blushes that will look better on me but it somehow manages to make me look sunkissed. The tropical fuity scent is an added bonus. In fact, I love the smell.


Look at the swatches!

So these are my Top picks among my blushes. I like the others but these 6 stand out from the rest. I hope everyone's having a great weekend so far! :)

  10. Mia, they're all pretty! :P I'm tamad to do FOTD's. Maybe COTD's for Cheek of the Day? Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, COTD's Pammy! Why not??

    Your top 2 blush does look scary. I still don't know what NARS blush to get. Im thinking, Desire, but your post convinced me that Taos may be a good buy,too. hay... the NARS dilemma..tsk tsk.

    And I'm happy that you're having fun with work. May be stressful at first, pero good company is truly destressing!
