Back in March, the lovely and beautiful Melanie from I am not a beauty guru tagged me to do the Addicted To Blush Tag! This tag has been floating around the beauty community lately so I was super excited to be tagged to join the fun!
1. What colour blush suits you the most?
I really love the wind-burned, frost-bitten type of look on myself and to achieve that, I go with a red-pink. I typically will achieve this look with the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Pink Escape which comes off very natural but still quite strong.
I have never tried a loose blush but I tend to love a cream blush. Though I am oily and it doesn’t always last on me, I find it looks so much more natural and feels better on my skin. I will top it with a powder blush for double the lasting power.
3. Favourite shimmery blush?
I gotta go with the Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink. With my acne scarring and large pores, I stay away from shimmer but it’s just a gorgeous shade and an awesome formula.
It’s so hard to pick a matte blush shade that is my number one but I think I am going to go with the Too Faced How Deep Is Your Love? I love the formula of these blushes and they are one of the few matte blushes I own.
I have to go with the Josie Maran blush I mentioned earlier. I love the natural but noticeable flush of this blush.
6. Favourite drugstore blush?
I have to say my favourite and most used blush is Physicians Formula Nude Wear in Rose. It is definitely a light pink shade that I don’t typically go to but something about it looks so subtle and goes with everything.
Though I haven’t dabbled too much into the high end world of blush, I do love the Too Faced Love Flush blushes. They last hours, I love the company, the packaging is the most adorable thing ever, and of course, they have great pigment. What’s not to love?
8. Favourite bright blush?
If I am going bright, I am going for something bold so I would go with one of the two bright shades in my BH Cosmetics blush palette. One is a cool toned pink and one is a super bright orange.
Though this isn’t exactly a blush product, I am disappointed in the two blushes from the BH Cosmetics Contour and Blush palette in Light. First off, they are the exact same shade so it is useless to have both in the palette but they are also so pigmented and intense, it would be hard not to look like a clown. I bought this for the highlight/contour shades though so I am not entirely disappointed.
Totally 100% going with Too Faced again. I can’t deal with how adorable their stuff is and heart shaped things are totally my thing.
11. What’s on your blush wish list?
I have definitely not tried enough high end blushes so I am going to have to go with some of the Urban Decay Afterglow blushes or the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecting blush. I have some serious heart-eyes for these two.
12. Number 1 holy grail blush?
I am not sure I could pick one blush or even one brand that is my holy grail because I love different blushes for different reasons. Every company I have mentioned here is fantastic and bonus, they are all cruelty-free!
