Top 10: Luminous Blushes (Warm-Toned Edition)

If you’ve followed my favorites, you’ll know that I favor more shimmery blush, and specifically, luminous blush. The kind of shimmer that doesn’t read frosted or metallic but more of glowing sheen. Here are some of my favorites of the moment!

  1. Chanel Golden Sun (280) — A Warm Brown with a Luminous finish.
  2. Laura Geller Ballerina — A Warm Copper with a Luminous finish.
  3. Chanel Malice (71) — A Warm Coral with a Luminous finish.

Burberry Optic White (000) Wet & Dry Glow Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, metallic white with neutral undertones. Applied dry, it was semi-opaque, and applied damp, it was more opaque, though not fully opaque. The texture has an almost dry feel to the touch, but it is very smooth and blendable.

Burberry Gold Copper & Dusky Mauve Eye Colour Creams

Burberry Eye Colour Cream ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a new cream eyeshadow formula that is available in eight shades. The formula is supposed to be “creamy, blendable” in texture with a “long-lasting” and “crease-free” wear. Burberry says it can be used to “deliver an effortless wash of luminising colour.” The texture is lightly spongy, though the two shades I tried had a firmer consistency with less spring compared to other formulas I’ve tried. They’re very blendable with semi-opaque coverage that’s easily taken down to more of a wash of color or layered for more opaque coverage, but they’re more medium buildable than a true wash of color. They lasted for six to eight hours on me before creasing.

5 Yellow-Orange Eyeshadows for Summer

It used to be hard to find a more yellow-based orange (most of the orange-hued eyeshadows would have a strong red base), but now, there is more variety than other. I think that yellow-toned oranges can sometimes be easier to wear if you’re new to orange eyeshadow! Here are some of my current favorites:

  1. Burberry Shell — a shimmery, golden orange
  2. ColourPop Sunnies — a pop of yellowed orange with a satin finish
  3. Makeup Geek Chickadee — a yellowed, medium orange with a matte finish
  4. OCC Mimosa — a shimmering tangerine
  5. Milani Bella Mandarin — a muted, yellowed orange
