I love using HOOLA by Benefit as a neutral sculpting blush. Nice, matte, and the perfect texture. After that I like Nars Orgasm or Benefit Coralista (or Throbb) as my “pop” shade.

I prefer the edgy sculpted effect a N*de blush llike Tarte exposed gives. I want to try my hands at Nars Douceur blush. In fact I’m looking for the perfect browny pink peach blush which is neither too pink nor too peach just neutral. Any recommendations?

Like my lipsticks, it depends on the season. This winter I mostly wore a muted reddish brown (Sleek’s Fenberry), or NARS Taos, which a lot of people consider a summer colour but I find it gives a very nice winter flush. At other times, I wore a more muted nude colour like Sleek’s Suede or the bronzy NARS Lovejoy.

This spring, I’ve been wearing pinky corals (NARS Torrid and Sleek Coral) or peach (Sleek Life’s a Peach).

(And yes, these are my two favourite brands of blushes!)

Oops – meant to reply in the main section. Divya, I was going to suggest Sleek’s Suede for you if you can get it. It depends on your skin tone though. Mine is NC40-42 and Suede is very subtle on me. If you like shimmer then a great pinky-brown is Sleek’s Sunrise.

Pink-peach or coral, preferably cream blush, since I can’t always be bothered to try and find a brush for powders.

I love to apply peachy blushes in summers, and my favourite is the balm frat boy blush, Artdeco blush no. 39, Rimmel mono blush in santa rose.

I love this one too…great on fair coolish toned skin like mine applied with a light hand. You might also like Tarte True Love and Bobbi Brown Apricot. They’re in that same family.

MAC Desert Rose is my Holy Grail blush. It is such a perfect darker pink. It never looks bad and is natural enough to wear even if I’m not doing full makeup (just concealer and powder). I cannot express how much I love it.

I love to apply pinks and coral colors on my cheeks…coral is the color which is very popular in fashion industry but unfortunatley I dont have much coral blushes in my little stash….I only have mac sheerone blush in peaches and its just love

I really love coral, peachy blushes, but I just cannot figure out a way to make them look right on my NW15 skin tone. So, instead I reach for light pinky blushes like NARS Sex Fantasy or nudes like Benefit Rockateur.

I feel the same way about my skin tone, and I’ve been sticking to pinkish shades lately. But I’ve found Nars Orgasm is a good coral that I can pull off (well I guess that’s the appeal of Orgasm is that most people can pull it off, haha).

I think it would have to be pink. Even though I’m NW15, I find that even a vibrant pink blush (like MAC “Deep Pink”), if applied carefully and sparingly with a good fan brush, gives me a natural-looking youthful “flush.”
I also wear reds and plms, applied in the same manner.

Cool light to medium pinks are best for me. I have rosacea and red broken veins so I have to avoid anything that makes me look flushed or red in the face. Already have enough of that!

pinks like mac well-dressed, ysl blush radiance #4, and tom ford wicked. I have very pale nc/nw05 skin, if that shade even existed, and dark hair.

Berry/plum or bronze. NARS Sin and Lovejoy are my go-to’s. My skin is light olive with a kind of rosy flush to it, so the ever popular corals and peachy pinks just kind of sit on top of my skin and look like they don’t belong there.

The color I blush naturally is very pink, so I usually go for pink (e.g. Tarte Exposed, Dior Rosy Glow, Tarte Dollface, Burberry Cameo), it just looks natural on me.

I don’t own many blushes, but I have a few that are in the same coral-y with shimmer family: Bella Bamba, Tarte Glisten, and I can’t remember the shade of Urban Decay cream blush, but yeah.

I’ve mainly worn Rockateur lately, or the shade in the Tarte Be Matte-nificent palette, when I’ve worn blush. I tend to go super subtle on blush, I mainly wear foundation to cover up redness in that area, so I’m hyper critical about adding it back with another product.
