5 Must-Have Shimmery Blushes

This was a tough one, because I wanted to have diversity in color, and preferably, diversity in brand, too.  ‘Cause let me tell you, there were 239847234 corals I’d love to have included, too.

  1. Le Metier de Beaute Echo — coral-orange with a golden shimmer-sheen; lovely texture and wear
  2. NARS Taj Mahal — golden shimmered orange; lots of great warmth, plenty of pigment
  3. Benefit Bella Bamba — medium-dark pink with a subtle shimmer-sheen; very wearable, buildable
  4. theBalm Cabana Boy — shimmered plum; simple, wearable, beautiful on
  5. Tom Ford Wicked — subtly blue-based medium-dark pink with a shimmer-sheen; long-wearing and super soft

  2. Inglot #330 — matte pastel peach-orange
  3. Chanel Emerveille — shimmery peach beige
  4. MAC Orb — neutral peach beige
  5. Inglot #328 — matte yellowed peach

5 Intriguing Green-Teal Eyeshadows

Finding a perfectly teal eyeshadow is difficult, because teal is a mix of blue and green and inevitably leans one way or the other.  Who knew that Make Up For Ever would have so many fun ones?
