Top 10 of 2012: Blushes & Highlighters

Top 10 of 2012: Blushes & Highlighters

Asking me to choose my favorite highlighter, by the way, is akin to making me choose favorites between (fur) children (if I had more than one). There were some seriously ga-ga-glowing highlighters launched this year, too! On the blush front, there were some great shades and formulas I tried and tested, but it was easier to narrow those down.

What was your favorite blush/highlighter from 2012?

5 Beautiful Coral-Orange Blushes

This post is a follow-up to last week’s on coral-pink blushes.  These are all warmer, with more orange/peach than pink.

  1. Tarte Blissful — vibrant coral-orange
  2. Tom Ford Lovelust — shimmering peachy coral
  3. Le Metier de Beaute Echo — rich coral-orange with a golden shimmer-sheen and a hint of underlying pink
  4. Chanel Tweed Brun Rose — medium-dark coral-orange
  5. Make Up For Ever #153 — coral-orange with golden shimmer/sheen

Tom Ford Lovelust Cheek Color

The formula is supposed to deliver buildable color, whether you want a soft glow to a dramatic look. It’s supposed to have “the comfort of a cream” with “outstanding lumiosity” and “velvety transparency.” This powder is insanely soft; it feels like velvet against the skin–so finely milled that it really does have a creaminess to it, even though it is most definitely a powder product. The shimmer is fine, not too much, and most of it translates into a sheen rather than a shimmer. My favorite part about the formula was that this blush would wear for ten hours without fading on me. It may be one of the longest-wearing blushes I’ve tried to date.
