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.
  4. MAC Make You Mine — A Warm Copper with a Satin finish.
  5. Makeup Geek Love Affair — A Warm Pink with a Satin finish.
  6. Clinique Peach Pop (02) — A Warm Coral with a Satin finish.
  7. NARS Lovejoy — A Warm Plum with a Pearl finish.
  8. MAC Love Thing — A Warm Plum with a Luminous finish.
  9. Burberry Blossom — A Warm Coral with a Luminous finish.
  10. Tom Ford Beauty Love Lust — A Warm Coral with a Frost finish.

NARS An Abnormal Female Lip Pencil Coffret

NARS An Abnormal Female Lip Pencil Coffret ($65.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes three full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, and all three are shades that are part of the permanent range, so if you like one, you may find it better to just pick up the one you want. Of all the packaging in the collection, this is the most unique, and it is more unique relative to other special edition packaging I’ve seen from brands in general. The Velvet Matte Lip Pencil formula can be drying, and it doesn’t always have the pigmentation expected, which are its major downsides.
