FAVOURITES TRILOGY PART 3: BLUSHES



So, this is my final post in my favourites trilogy which was all about highlighters, bronzers and blushes. Blushes are one of my favourite make up products. The truth is like every good make up addict I can't stop buying them. I'm always drawn to the pretty pink and the stunning peachy tones. 

Mac Pink Swoon US$21/AUD$41 - Like many others before me, I love this colour. As it's a sheer tone, it's perfect for that little pinch of colour on the cheeks. It's one of my favourite pinks and it gives you that beautiful snow kissed cheek. It's glow-y and natural. Just perfect.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Doll Face US$26- Similar to Pink Swoon, this is the perfect baby pink for your cheeks which gives you those snow kissed cheeks, like you've just come off the ski slopes of Aspen or in my case Mt Buller. I also have oily/combination skin so the 12 hour blushes last all day on the face, who can complain with that? These aren't readily available in Australia, which is a complete bummer - so I go through Sephora and use My Us forwarding address to get them to me. Goes to show what a girl will do for a brilliant blush!

The Balm Instain Swiss Dot US$22/AUD $26.95 - This was a new find. I couldn't believe it was a cheek stain, but in a powder format. Plus, on top of all of that the colour is marvellously opaque.  This is the perfect coral colour and it's a great pick me up for those days when you're feeling meh. I can't recommend this product enough. It lasts on the skin all day and because it's a powder you have more control of the application vs. a liquid. Win!

Stila Convertible Colour Cerbera US$25/AUD$40- Amazing peachy tone. The moment I tried this at Mecca Cosmetica, I knew it was love. It blends beautifully, stays on well and gives a lovely dewiness to the skin. I also love this colour on the lips, a perfect nude/peach.

Clinique Cheek Pop/Blush Pop Ginger Pop US$21/AUS $40 - I've already raved about how wonderful this product is in my Spring Favourites. So I won't go on any more, because I won't be able to stop. It's amazing. Go buy it!

Hourglass Lighting Blush Dim Infusions US$35/AUD$50 - Once again another blush I've raved about in a separate post. The swatch doesn't do it any justice and no words can explain how amazing it is. It leaves your skin glowing - a perfect mixture between a blush and a highlighter. Love love love.
