Currently Obsessing Over; Blushes

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Hello ladies, I hope you're doing great.
It would actually be way more correct if I named today's post always obsessing over blushes, but let's stick with the theme here. As you can probably tell, I'm going to talk about my all time favourite make-up products; blushes.
My love towards blushes is as strong as it can be, and I'm not even ashamed to admit, I sometimes just stare at them. Even though I know I have enough to last me, and a couple of other people, a lifetime, I'll probably never stop buying them. I actually just bought a new one yesterday. If there was a blusher-addicts anonymous I would probably be the spiritual leader of it, but hopefully some of you would join me. 




















When I was writing down my February favourites, I noticed that I want to include way too many blushes. So instead I'm going to share a ''few'' of my current favourites with you right now.
Side note; I'm not going to mention how long-lasting they are, because all of the blushes last all day on my skin....










Catrice Defining blush in Pinkerbell (070): This was my first blush from Catrice and I don't know why it took me so long to get one, since a lot of girls seem to love their blushes and I can see why; they're soft, smooth, pigmented and afordable. Pinkerbell is a very vibrant, matte fuchsia pink shade that's nicely pigmented and easy to blend. It looks amazing on pale skin, but I'm sure it'll look great with a tan as well. I also really like the packaging as well, it's compact, sturdy and small, so it's great for carrying around. 











Catrice LE Une, Deux, Trois Defining duo blush in Meet Nudy (C05): This one and the next one were a part of limited collection which is probably not available any more, so I'm sorry for that, but I've been wearing them quite often recently, so I wanted to include them anyway.
This one is a little bit less pigmented than Pinkerbell, which is probably due to it's more natural and subtle colour, but you can easily build it up, so for me this really isn't a big deal. Even though you can use both shades separately, I normally just mix them both together. I like to pair this one with bold lipstick, or if I'm going for that ''no make-up'' make-up look. 











Catrice LE Une, Deux, Trois Defining duo blush in Meet Cherry (C01): The texture and pigmentation of this one is the same as with Pinkerbell. I picked it up because at first glance it reminded me of Illamasqua's Morale, but it's not as purple as that one as it has more pink and red undertones. I like to wear each shade on its own, or again, mixed together as I did on the swatch. 













Physicians Formula Happy buster in Natural: I was so excited when I got this as a part of my Secret Santa present, as it was on my WL for ages. If I'm honest, I would probably buy it just because of the packaging (let's take a minute and stare at it together), but luckily that's not the only good thing about it.  For me, the shade of this one is absolutely stunning and those tiny shimmers just make your face look radiant and glowy. The only downside is the pigmentation, which is not the best, but again, buildable. 












Illamasqua Powder blusher in Hussy: In my opinion Illamasqua is the queen of the blushes. Even though I currently own only three, I can assure I won't be stopping here. Yes, they are pricey, but they are seriously worth every penny. The colour pay off, the texture, the longevity, the colour selection, the packaging,.. Everything is pure perfection. And Hussy is no exception. 
I'm not going to lie, when I first got this one in the mail, I freaked out a little bit, because I thought that it was going to be way too bright for me, but it actually looks gorgeous on. Yes, you do have to be careful and not apply too much, but that only means that it will last you so much longer. 
If you like pink blushes, this one is a must buy for you. 












INGRID Cosmetics Satin touch Mineral blush in 1: I won't be talking much about this one, since I just reviewed it here. All in all, I was positively surprised by this one and I'm loving it. 













Rimmel Lasting finish Soft colour blush in Pink Rose (020): I found this one when I was cleaning out my make-up storage a few weeks back. I completely forgot about it but I'm definitely glad that it's back on my radar. The packaging is so small, that it'll fit into the tiniest of make-up bags and the shade would probably suit every skin tone. The shade is similar to the Ingrid one, but more peachy. It also has slight shimmers, which I like because I really think it makes your face look healthy and flushed. 

These are my current favourite, go-to blushes. Knowing me, I'll eventually end up writing a part two, maybe even three of this post. Especially now that I'm dying over Hourglass Ambient blushes... 

I hope you like reading this post, I sure did love making it. Since I always love reading your comments and suggestion, I'm curious to know;  What's your current go-to blush? Are there any blushes a blusher addict like me needs in her stash?

S.

  1. Jaz sem ravno včeraj razmišljala o tem, koliko blushev imam in številka je res visoka, ampak jih obožujem isto kot ti. Sem že pisala o svojih petih naj blushih, zdaj pa razmišljam še, da bi napisala post o kolekciji.
    So mi pa čisto vsi blushi po vrsti všeč. Pinkerbell imam je je trenutno eden mojih naj blushev. Blushe iz Une, Deux, Trois sem imela dolgo nagledane, ampak sem se na koncu odločila, da jih preskočim, sem potem raje naročila ene par Sleek blushev. Mi je pa Hussy izjemno všeč in razmišljam, da bi kupila duo blush Hussy&Lover, ker sta mi oba zelo lepa.
