5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

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?

Giorgio Armani #4 Antique Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #4 Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as an “antique gold.” It’s a muted yellow gold with bronze-brown tones, so it appears a little brighter than true antique gold but not extremely brassy either. Surprisingly, it reads differently to these gold eyeliners. This kind of color does an excellent job of bringing out the warmth in eyes, especially if you have green or hazel-hued peepers. The color coverage is fairly opaque in one pass, which is always nice.

This formula is supposed to be waterproof/water-resistant, long-wearing, soft, creamy, and intense. It is insanely soft; don’t keep it in a warm place, because it’s close to pushing the envelope by being too soft! The softness lends itself to great glide and application; it will slide across the lash line like hot butter on a skillet. There’s no tugging, dragging, or skipping with these formula! With all of that creaminess, I was afraid it was going to smudge and migrate all over the place, but in a completely impressive move, it sets after twenty seconds or so, and it stays put quite well. There’s minor but noticeable fading after eight hours of wear, so it’s not the most impressive eyeliner I own, but it holds its own.  I took a shower with this on, and water didn’t cause it to run or smudge.
