Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush, MAC Sweet Sentiment Mineralize Blush and either UD Rapture, Becca Camellia Luminous Blush or MAC Rosy Cheeks Extra Dimension Blush (any of those 3 would be my 3rd choice).

Paris Skies almost makes the list but it’s just a hairrrr too shimmery for me. But such a perfect shade! My answers are: Clinique Ballerina Pop, Sydney Grace’s Always & Forever, and Fenty’s Cheeks Out cream blush in Bikini Martini. I’m not a big highlighter person so blush always wins out, lol.

If it had less, and silver shimmer, it’d be perfection….I think? Or maybe Arctic Moon as the shimmer? So much gold comes through. Gold contrasts more with my baseline skintone, so it comes forward and the base color recedes. I still love it, but it’s not as expected.

Clinique Black Honey Cheek Pop, Nude Pop, and Fenty’s Petal Poppin. But I might trade practicality for love and switch Nude Pop for Fenty’s Daquari Dip at the last minute.

Mac fairly precious, laura gellar butter cream, sydney grace paris skis, nars blissful,
Sydney grace pink lemonaid, mac dilly dolly.
I have several more but those are my go to’s for sure…..😄😁😆

1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed, for a nude-on-me, goes-with-almost-anything option.

2. Menagerie Cosmetics Arthurine Blush Palette for more colorful and pigmented choices.

3. ABH Glow Kit in Moonchild for highlighter options.

*Honorable mentions — NARS Hot Tryst Palette, Estee Lauder Limited Edition Rebellious Rose Blush, SG Paris Skies, and KVD Everlasting Blush in Rosebud.

Jouer Adore Blush Bouqet duo (I mix the two shades, so I’m counting it as one)
Urban Decay Rapture blush
Becca Berlin Girl Glow highlighter

Laura Geller Diamond Dust baked highlighter, Melt Nevermore blushlight, Blackbird Cosmetics Blueberry Pookie blush.

Although Urban Decay Rapture and Sin are close up there. I’m still shocked they did away with the Afterglow formula so fast!

Okay, so I literally HAVE to look up that Blueberry Pookie blush as that was my dearest kitty’s name: Pookie!
(Actually, she ties with Scunci. Both are gone now. I miss them so much!)

Unfortunately she shut down her shop a few years back 🙁 Which is really sad because her blushes were my favorites, and now I’m on my last pot of both BP and Kitten Kiss – which is my favorite “natural flush” blush.

PMG – Fleurtatious
ND – Blush and Bronze from the Tan Bronze and Glow palette
ND – Super Glow Nude from the Bronze Cheek Face Glow palette

I wear this trio constantly.

1.) ABH Amrezy highlighter
2.) Nars holiday palette from a few years ago, because it has wearable shades for all year. Or the Hourglass quad from holiday 2019?
3.) If I could get the perfect dupe for UD Jawbone…that!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty (still working through the Sephora birthday gift mini lol!), Ulta Face Highlighting Color Stick in Pixie Dust, and Laura Geller Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla

Besame Crimson Cheek Rouge, Clinique Pansy Cheek Pop, and ColourPop Blush Stix in Under Pressure. Just for variety! Funny how hard this was for me to determine, even though I skip blush most days. 🙂

OH!! I didn’t think of contour as being a cheek product, but if it is, then I’d swap out the ColourPop blush for the Milani Silky Matte Bronzer in 02, Sun Kissed. Can’t go without a contour! I wear that every single day. 🙂
