Let's get cheeky! (Our Top Blushes)

Who doesn't love a good blush on their cheeks? Yes to some glow anytime. And in this blog post we share our favourites. 

NARS - Taj Mahal

My first blush purchase was because of my obsession with Nur (love her! and if you don't know who she is, follow her on YouTube now! Nurberxo). She raved about Nar's blush in Taj Mahal years ago and I HAD to have it! And yes it was a win! This is a very pigmented blush so a little definitely goes a long way. I know the colour looks very vibrant but when applied with a LIGHT hand this is a stunning shade. This is definitely my all time favourite blush. 

Make Up For Ever (HD Blush) - Indian Rosewood #420

This shade is beautiful, especially for olive and tanned complexions. ho However it could work for any skin tone - as long as you applied it lightly as it's quite pigmented. If you're not into creamier blushes then you might want to pass on this one but this colour is very natural looking and blends in perfectly with your makeup.

BECCA (Mineral Blush) - Flowerchild

Flowerchild is a beautiful pinky peach blush with hints of gold shimmer and works well with those of us who have golden undertones to our skin. This blush really is universal in that it suits light to deeper skin tones. If you especially love that natural looking makeup look then this blush is perfect for you. This is very pigmented so a little does go a long way. 

Laura Mercier (Second Skin Cheek Color) - Spiced Cider

This is another beautiful peachy shade that has a bit of gold flecks in it, but if you aren't into a lot of shimmer then this might be a great blush for you! Spiced Cider is gorgeous for Fall and is workable for every skin tone, and looks especially flattering on those who have golden undertones.

Hourglass (Ambient Lighting Blush) - Luminous Flush

Okay let's just take a minute to stare at this stunning blush... It really is a gorgeous shade and in all honesty, all of the blushes in the Ambient Lighting collection are stunners. This shade in particular is very flattering and a perfect pop of light pink. It's a gorgeous champagne pink shade and blends flawlessly. The lighter blushes can also work as stunning highlighters too!

Tarte (Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush) - Achiote 

This colour is gorgeous! It's the perfect nudey pink shade and is consistently out of stock on Sephora (so you know it's a winner!). Tarte blushes are very silky and blend perfectly as well (yay for being a cruelty free brand as well). The staying power in my opinion was a bit less than 12 hours but the colour made up for that. 

NARS - Orgasm

You knew this had to be in here. Orgasm blush is such a cult favourite and still remains to be a blush favourite of mine (but only after Taj Mahal). This is a beautiful pink shade with shimmer and is loved by many Beauty lovers out there. 

Sigma Beauty - Cor-De-Rosa Aura Powder

This colour is stunning! And I feel like this picture just doesn't do the colour justice. It definitely has peach and golden undertones to it and offers the most beautiful flushed appearance to your cheeks. This blush is perfect for everyday and the price is also great! This is a bestseller on Sigma's website as well so you know we aren't raving about this blush alone.
