Top 10 of 2011: Blushes & Highlighters

Top 10 of 2011: Blushes & Highlighters

It’s so hard for me to pick favorites, but these are ten products that really caught my eye this year for adding color and/or glow to cheeks. Since these are products for 2011, I did exclude any spring 2012 products that may have been reviewed this year, as they’re technically for next – so these feature products new for 2011 and permanent products I discovered this year! :)

  1. Guerlain Parure de Nuit
  2. Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous
  3. Guerlain Blush G Serie Noire
  4. Benefit Watt’s Up
  5. Tarte Exposed
  6. Guerlain Terra Inca
  7. Tarina Tarantino Feather
  8. NYX Menage a Trois
  9. NARS Oasis
  10. Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees

What was your favorite blush/highlighter that you discovered this year?

Tarina Tarantino Feather Dollskin Cheek Blush

The powder is very soft and finely-milled, so when you touch your brush to it, you can pick up quite a bit of color in a single go. This means it is a little powdery, though, so you may want to use a light hand when picking up color. Luckily, though the blush is fairly true-to-pan with good color payoff, it blends out easily because of the overall softness of the powder. It has more of a shimmer-sheen finish, so it doesn’t look frosty or disco ball-like on the cheeks. I had a good experience while wearing it, because it lasted eight hours without migrating or looking faded.
