Blushing Beauties | My Blusher Collection

Monday, 26 August 2013





Hi Dolls! Blusher is something which I use on a daily basis, as I'm so pale I really do think that I need it to put some colour into my cheeks and make me look less dead. I thought I would share with you all my blusher collection and give a little overview of each. As far as beauty bloggers make up collections go, I think my blusher collection is actually quite small as I only own 5 which I use all the time. 

Firstly I'll start with the Benefit Boxed Blushers. I love Benefit's Boxed Blushers, the packaging is so cute on each of them and there is such a lovely range of colours but I'm only lucky enough to own two. My first ever blusher purchase was 'Thrrrob' by Benefit. It's a light pink colour which gives the smallest pink flush to your cheeks. This was perfect for me while I was in school as it was not too obvious and my school had a strict 'no makeup' policy until you were in sixth form. I also bought 'Hervana' with a Boots voucher I received one Christmas and this has got to be one of my all time favourite blushers. It has a mixture of different colours running through from a more bronze pink through to a creamy colour which when mixed together give you the perfect warm pink flush. I love this blusher and it's one of my most used. 

I also own two MAC blushers. The first one I bought was 'Springsheen' which is a coral colour blush with a lot of shimmer. Some of you may not like this as it does have a very glowy finish but I think it looks great if your going for a dewy summery look, which is what I use it for. I also use it on nights out with a green gold smokey eye. I also own 'Pink Swoon' which I won in a giveaway. I chose pink swoon as, although it looks quite bright in the pan, it gives you a lovely sheer pink flush which looks great with any make up look. 

And lastly, I also own this Mii blush in the shade 'Kissed 01'. I'm not sure where you can buy this shade as I received it as a present from my Mum and I have no idea where she got it from. They do have a website and I think that this blusher retails for around £16, which I think is quite pricey when you look at the size of it. However, this blush is super pigmented so a little really does go a long way. Its quite bright so I'd recommend only using a little anyway or you will be walking around like a clown, and let's face it, that look has never been in.

  1. I own Thrrrob too! I love it but it a little too light for my skin :-( but I still use it on days where I only want a bit of colour! Yet to try a MAC blush though do you think they're worth the price tag over brands like bourjoir ect?

    1. I definitely agree with you about Thrrrob, It is very light as you can see in the swatches but its great for those days when you don't want too much colour and your going for a subtle look! I haven't tried that many drugstore blushers because when I buy a mac or benefit blusher they last me for like 2 years so I never really feel the need to replace them. The price tag is the reason I only own 2, they are very good quality and very pigmented but I do think they are a little expensive. The only reason I'm happy to pay the price is for the quality and the colour range available, MAC have so many colours all suited to different skin types which i think drugstore make up is missing, but they are expensive so I don't buy a lot of them and they last me for years! Hope this helps! xx

    1. I just love the packaging! Hervana is a great blush for all skin tones as I use it when I'm very pale but it also suits me when I've had a dark spray tan :) xx

  6. I have Springsheen and love it - it's great as a combo product (works as highlighter + blush in one).

    Gorgeous post!
