5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

Peach can be a really wearable color that can look natural on any skin tone.  Cooler complexions will find that peach-hued blushes can help mitigate any natural redness on the cheeks without emphasizing it like a pink blush might.  Warmer complexions are easily freshened up with a pop of peach on the cheeks.  Reader Sirinthorn wanted to see what my five picks would be for peach blushes, and here they are:

  1. Chanel Espiegle– peach-orange with a satiny sheen
  2. MAC Peaches — classic peach with subtle brown undertones
  3. Make Up For Ever #14 — soft peach
  4. NARS Sex Appeal – pale peach
  5. MAC Melba — dirty peach-brown with a matte finish

What’s your favorite peach blush?

    I don’t understand the image used for MAC Peaches. Are all the swatches of the same same product?

    I love peach blushes!! I have MAC Peaches, which I love, but I find that it doesn’t show up on me in the summer, when I’m darker. I might have to check out Melba. Thanks for the roundup Christine!

    I use mac peaches almost non-stop but lately I’ve liked the cheap ones from essence called it-girl and when I need glitter, elf’s peachy keen.

  7. Espiegle looks SOOOO beautiful! I actually don’t really have any blushes this color!

    Thanks so much for this! New to the world of blushes and have been looking for a peach one hoping to help with some redness ya described. Hard to tell online what’s a true peach or not.

    I have been looking for a wearable blush for my extremely fair skin for quite some time. Nars Sex Appeal seems promising… I think I’ll give it a try. :)

    My alltime favorite is MAC Gingerly, it looks amazing on my skintone. But Melba is awesome too.
