My Humble Blush Collection.

I'm not calling my collection humble because I'm complaining that I don't have enough makeup because let's be honest, I'll never be able to use up half of the blushes I currently own. But having seen my share of other people's blush collection posts, I'd say the size of mine falls neatly somewhere in the middle...not to say that it's not constantly expanding, though ;)


Here is my collection with a few honorable mentions:


MAC Powder Blushes
Top row (L to R): Salsarose (pro), Well Dressed, On a Mission (LE)
Bottom row: Peaches, Blunt, Blushbaby

L to R: Salsarose, Well Dressed, On a Mission, Peaches, Blunt, Blushbaby

Salsarose is perfect on the apples of the cheeks for a natural, flushed look.
Blunt is good for contouring on medium to darker skin tones.

Oversized MAC Blushes/MSFs
(All LE)
Clockwise from left: Cheeky Bronze MSF, Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre, Petticoat MSF, Marine Life Highlight Powder

L to R: Cheeky Bronze, Azalea Blossom, Marine Life, Petticoat

Cheeky Bronze reminds me a bit of Stereo Rose but I can't note the differences for sure because I don't own Stereo Rose. I believe Stereo Rose is more pink and coral.
Petticoat recently got temporarily retired so that some of my other blushes could have their cheek time, not because I don't absolutely love it :)

MAC Mineralize Blushes
(All LE)
Top row: Daft Pink, New Vibe, Hang Loose
Bottom row: Fad-dabulous, Light Over Dark

L to R: Daft Pink, New Vibe, Hang Loose, Fad-dabulous, Light Over Dark

New Vibe mixed looks a lot like Fad-dabulous but darker and redder.
Daft Pink is one of my all time favorite blushes.
Light Over Dark is ultra shimmery so those who are not a fan of shimmery blushes should steer clear.

Random High-End Blushes
Top row: MAC Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush (LE), Sephora Rose Rebelle, Bobbi Brown Brownie Shimmer Brick (LE), NARS Orgasm
Bottom row: Smashbox Smashing Tint Soft Lights (DC), Illamasqua Hussy Powder Blush, Korres #15 Natural

L to R: Optimistic Orange, Rose Rebelle, Brownie, Orgasm, Smashing Tint, Hussy, Natural

Optimistic Orange actually looks really natural and lovely when blended out.
Natural is the perfect neutral blush that won't compete with the rest of your makeup.

Random Drugstore Blushes and Minis
Top row: e.l.f. Candid Coral, NYC Plaza Pink Blushable Creme Stick, Stila Peony Convertible Color (mini)
Bottom row: Maybelline Pink Frosting Dream Mousse Blush, Stila Lillium Convertible Color (mini), Rimmel Spicy Nude 

L to R: Candid Coral, Plaza Pink, Peony, Pink Frosting, Lillium, Spicy Nude

Peony and Lillium are really nice cream blushes for oily skin because they stay on forever but they're still easily blendable.

A few blushes that I'm currently lusting after:
Beaute Fluoron Liqui-gel Stain 
NARS Taj Mahal
MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush
MAC Posey Blushcreme

  12. I loveeee your collection girl! I want all of these now ugh!! :) Wow you must love Blushbaby! :) I heard so many good things about it and it looks gorgeous on your swatch I guess I'll have to make it mine! I also really like Illamasqua's Hussy, very pretty. That's definitely going to my Sephora to buy list right now! My fave of all though is Peaches, I use it everyday :)

  14. @LaurenStephanie: Believe me, I know how you feel! Just take a bunch of pictures before you start using it so you can always remember how beautiful it once was, lol :)

    @Kirsty: I actually picked it up at a CCO so you might be able to find one there as well :)

    @FunnyFaceBeauty: I was lucky enough to be able to get Optimistic Orange from a recent blog sale after missing out on the collection when it was in-stores.

    @Lilladylife: That's what I hear! Hopefully I'll be able to get it soon :)

    @Alexa: It's a really pretty, natural, muted pink. Can't say it's my favorite, though, but it was my very first MAC blush and I used to use it all the time because it was the only one I had!

    @Ebru: It's a nice natural pink blush to have for medium skintones. I think it would look really pretty on you! It's not my absolute fave but it was my very first MAC blush and I used it every single day because it was the only blush I had, hence almost finishing it :) I love Peaches, too! So pretty!

  16. very nice collection. I love the look of Azalea Blossom, Marine life I am so jealous cause I couldn't get that one. :)

  17. Lovely collection! :) I agree about Daft Pink, I love it very much too. But Stereo Rose is nothing like Cheeky Bronze. :) It's a lot less shimmery and it's coraly pink. I love Cheeky Bronze too, but it doesn't beat Stereo Rose IMO. :)

  18. I'm a NW15 and I love Blushbaby too! I think it is one of those blushers that is slightly different on different skin tones, it gives me a lovely pinky/red natural flush.

    Awesome collection, beats mine hands down ;) I've found I am having to rotate mine already, so can understand why you retired Petticoat for a little while as you want to be able to enjoy all of your blushes.

  19. @Anitacska: I passed on Stereo Rose when I could've pre-ordered it but I kind of want it now. I guess it'll just have to be the one that got away!

    @Small Town Gal: Blushbaby sounds lovely on you! I think it's one of those blushes that looks good on most skin tones, too. I love those :)

  20. Lovely collection! Why only must NYC Plaza Pink be so peach on me? It seems so pink on you, I am really jealous now.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Whoa love all of them. This post convinced me I need peaches! :) Amazing collection

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is a seriously enviable collection! :D I love the look of Optimistic Orange. I have Hang Loose and Blushbaby and I love them :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Yarisse: It may be the lighting and the fact that my arm is a bit darker than my face because Plaza Pink actually looks more like a peachy pink on my cheeks :)

    @Andrea: You do! I think Peaches will look really pretty on your skin tone!

    @SilhouetteScreams: Optimistic Orange is one of my new faves...I'm really into bright blushes now which is kind of odd since we're now moving into Fall and Winter :/
