Just a quick little post today, I’m not due to post again until tomorrow but whilst taking photos for next weeks posts I realised a common theme throughout a lot of my recent purchases – so much blush!
In the past I really struggled with blush – I have pale skin and my cheeks tend to be pretty rosy naturally, which I absolutely despise. So growing up I tended to avoid blush, and I would just layer on my foundation extra thick to try and hide the redness. Over time I have learnt to embrace it and have learned to love blush! I just thought I would share with you the blushers I have been loving recently.
Benefit Sugarbomb is a long time love of mine, but over the last few months I have picked up quite a few different blushes. I recently posted about my first Sleek purchase – where I picked up their blushers in the shades Rose Gold and Suede (pictured below), both of which are completely gorgeous and ridiculously good value for money (check out my original post for more info).
L-R: Sleek Rose Gold & Sleek Suede.
I jumped on the band wagon with the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush, I picked up the shade 10 Nude Mauve back in April. Initially I did really love it, but it has a tendency to emphasise my redness so I haven’t been reaching for it as much recently.
Now onto my most recent finds, MAC Harmony – the perfect contour shade for pale skinned English Roses like me. I am currently obsessed with this blush, it is such an easy to wear shade and is really long lasting (full post here). This week I managed to pick up the Make Up Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in the shade Golden Sugar. I am yet to try this out properly but I just can’t emphasise enough how stunning these shades are. For £6 the range of shades and pigmentation is insane. I had to have this palette as I thought it would be the perfect mix of colours for summer time.
Next on my Blush wish list is Benefit’s Coralista! What are your HG Blushers? Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments below.
