I think I wear Benefit Sugarbomb a lot more than other blushes, but I don’t think I would call it my go-to blush. I think I’m just lazy because theres a brush included and I don’t have to fetch for my blush brush XD

Other than that, I think I reach for Diorblush in 733 English Rose the most. Its the only blush that I have that has a little bit of a dent in it. I love it, its so flattering on my skin!

i guess i’d say mine is nars deep throat. it’s not all bright and bold so i can pretty much just put it on when i don’t wanna wear too much on my face.

Rock & Republic Bedroom. Looove this color on me! I wish I’d have bought a backup of this when R&R Cosmetics was on HauteLook… the pan is so huge, though, that I’ll probably never finish it!

Mac Peachykeen and Benefit Coralista are the 2 that get worn the most despite my growing blush collection.

Lately i’ve been reaching for Illamasqua’s Katie blusher alot, but my usual go-to blushes are between Mac Peaches and Covergirl Plush plum. Haha, those are all vastly different colors but I love ’em all!

nars deepthroat. Personally, it’s what I would have thought Orgasm would be like. You can just slap it on and it goes with anything. It’s pigmented but not overly pigmented that you have to take the time to be extra careful you don’t apply too much. Love it…

MAC Gentle – although it tends to go a little ‘brown’ looking on me (I seem to have that trouble with pinks quite a bit – fresco rose paint pot does the same thing). Can anypone suggest why? Or suggest a more ‘pink’ pink? (NW15 skin).

Thanks 🙂

I’m NW15 also and I love NARS penny lane cream blush. shouldn’t show up brown on you at all. also, if you can get your hands on MAC Hipness blush, I love it for the summer

I’d say MAC Warm Soul and MAC Desert Rose but Nars Orgasm also has its place on my top blushes.

MAC Peaches and MAC Fun & Games, which is basically the same peach color, Fun & Games has a tiny little sparkle to it in the pan which you don’t notice when you apply it to the cheek!

only only and only margin and all thanks to christine for that …
got sooo many compliments everytime i wear

Aveda Uruku Cheek/Lip Creme in Guava or Solara. It’s discontinued but a little goes a VERY long way. It would take me years to go through a tube of it! 🙂

MAC Fleur Power, even though I’m searching for NARS orgasm. Too bad it’s not available at where I live!


I guess it’s my first comment here but I really love your blog.

My absolute favorite (the one that’s good for every ocasion and made me leave all the others) is Guerlain Divinora rose pluie d’or. Not pink nor peach, with a golden glow that seems to come from within and looks like you’re not even wearing any blush. In a word: perfect.

Hello Sandra,
I am really interested in this product. Can you tell me your skin tone? I am NW20.

MAC Brit wit, or Azalia blossom(from the color forecast collection)

Although I’m now loving the staying power of MUFE Aqua cream in Fresh Pink.

MAC so sweet so easy cremeblend blush. i find i dont have to use so much cos its a cream product, so i use it when im hurrying 🙂

I’ve been considering about purchasing “CUBIC” for the longest time.
I usually like layer my blushes with other bluses and contour my cheeks with “MAC HARMONY BLUSH” and I’m about NW 25-30 and I was wondering if it’d work on my skintone?

It may work but it’s quite light. I am NW20 and it is looks very natural on me – like I don’t wear any blush.

MUFE Microfinish Creme Blush “Quickie”. It is my most used blush right now. It makes my skin look soft and pretty and it lasts all day in the heat with no touch ups needed.

Lately it’s been MAC Marine Life… it goes with everything and gives my face that instant healthy sunkissed glow!

NARS Dolce Vita for pinkish looks, and NARS Gina for more golden/bronze looks. Although, since I bought Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Seduce (raspberry pink), I’ve been wearing it non-stop.

in order: mac melba, dior rose diamond or amber diamond shimmer star, laura mercier cream lipstick in Audrey as a blush.

For the longest time I just kind of cycled through my many blushes, just so that none of them felt left out. 😛

Then, Instant Chic entered my life. It looks perfect on me! Subtle enough for everyday, but buildable. I actually got a back-up. 🙂

at the moment: Nars Gina, for reference…I have dolce vita, gilda and zen (another good neutral)

MAC Bi-Tone Mineralize Blush. ‘Wasn’t planning on this becoming my go-to, but it gives me such a rosy, natural glow, I’ve wound up keeping it with me at all times. I get compliments on how healthy and great I look every time I wear it.

Lancome’s Blush Subtil in Rose Fresque whenever, and in summer NARS striptease though it needs to be paired with bronzer to look perfect

Mac’s Instant Chic is my all-time favorite, I wish I had purchased a backup 🙁 My go-to blush that I use everyday is Benefit’s Sugarbomb. It gives me a healthy looking glow.

Mine is Peachykeen by MAC and now also Taj Mahal by Nars. Love that blush. i have been using that one almost every day the last 2 mo and it will be my holy grail blush over the summer and into fall.

Peachykeen is the blush I put on when I am in a hurry or just don’t know which one to choose – then it’s often the winner.

No Tarte love?! I use Tarte’s Eco-Cheek stain every day because it doesn’t break me out and I’m not allergic to anything in it. Total love. I’ve never worn blush consistently before now.

MAC INSTANT CHIC and NARS GINA !!!!!!( will die without these babies…. jk…but nah… i’m not kidding)

MAC The perfect cheek 😉 hit the pan months ago and its running out!!! ;-( next would be pretty baby 🙂

NARS Penny Lane. I absolutely LOVE it soo much its my perfect color and i get so many compliments when i wear it 🙂

MAC Instant Chic. I don’t need to be afraid of using a heavy hand with this at all since it’s a sheertone and the color gives you a nice glow and isn’t anything crazy.

It used to be Mac Cheek..but as I’ve gotten tanner and tanner..it’s come to be Mac Dainty or Warm Soul. (:

MAC Mineralized Blush in Gleeful.I apply it on my cheekbones.I don’t wear my blushes on the apple of my cheeks unless it’s a creme.

I can’t possibly live without my Illamasqua cream blushers: Promise, Rude and Dixie. I am NC15/20ish and love them all. Thinking of buying Seduce too… I pair them with a touch of Terracotta Light in blonde.
