But now I'm back and I feel like sharing my all time favorite blushes.
I don't actually own that much blush. I'm quite content with what I have. I keep all my cheek stuff in this bonus makeup bag:
Anyway out of my collection here my 5 faves... sorry that my picture quality isn't great :(
Nars Taj Mahal | Nars Orgasm
MAC Gingerly | MAC Style | Nyx Copper
Nyx Copper | Nars Taj Mahal | Nars Orgasm | MAC Gingerly | MAC Style
Nyx Copper : Is basically a shimmery copper blush. I love it because it is a blush, highlight and bronzer all in one package. It warms up your skin and adds a shimmery glow, just make sure you use a lighter hand. I swatched it here.
Nars Taj Mahal: A gorgeous shimmery vibrant golden orange color. It is so pigmented you only need to touch your brush. If you have tan skin this is an absolute must have. I did a whole post obsessing over this blush here.
Nars Orgasm: I had to include this infamous blush in my top five because it's just that easy go to peachy pink blush that compliments the rest of your makeup without a thought. Orgasm has that golden shimmer laced through it too which I love. It is definitely suited to lighter skin tones because in the summer it hardly shows on my skin.
MAC Gingerly: I would describe this matte sheertone blush as a warm bronze reddish brown color (Don't be thrown off but it is the color of red clay). It's the Kim Kardashian blush! I picked it up in this haul. It's great because it is universally flattering for all skin tones. A lady at the MAC counter told me that it's a makeup artist's go to blush.
MAC Style: I think this was the first blush I ever bought. I've since repurchased and hit pan ... again. Its a shimmery peach color, similar to Orgasm but brighter and peachier. It's just another easy go to blush that you don't have to think about.
So if you hadn't noticed I like shimmery peachy/orange blushes. I just can't be bothered with highlighting most days. And I don't have huge cheeks so I can get away with it :D
