This is an easy one, sort of (I have a lot of faves I feel bad about omitting but they are ones I’ve not used in months and months)
1. Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush
2. Becca Foxglove Luminous Blush
3. a toss-up between MAC Sweet Sentiment (LE) and Extra Dimension blush in Rosy Cheeks

YES! Jordana blushes are so underrated! So cheap and so gorgeous, and they have colors for basically everyone. You have good taste, Diane!

I’d really, really like to try Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blushes. I’ve been looking at them for so long (not in person, unfortunately) and can’t decide which color I’d like. Anyway, I only hear rave reviews about this blush.

They are lovely! They stay on forever, easy to blend and just melt into the skin. I started out by buying a couple of samples on his site, so if you don’t want to pay full price that’s a way to try out different colors.

Heehee, I think three would be generous for me! I wear Benefit’s PosieTint most days, but have recently been very much into the Milk Makeup Lip+Cheek Glow in the shade Halo. And they’re basically the same shade, natch. 😉

MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Enough, Clinique Powder Blush in Cupid, and NARS Orgasm. (I hate including that last one because it’s become so cliché, but I really do love how it looks on me.)

It’s a classic for a reason. I don’t think it is any more “cliche” than naming a Glossier Cloud Paint or any MAC blush. Sometimes you just like what you like regardless of how popular or redundant it is!

It’s the only makeup I’ve ever replaced (besides my go-to foundation & concealer).
Nothing else has quite the same combo of just the right color w/ just the right sheen for me.

It seems like the big size has a different texture than the regular size. To be clear, this isn’t the “Super Orgasm” version, which I know is different. This is just a larger size of the classic Orgasm. It seems grittier and doesn’t go on as well. Could it be a bad batch or did they change the formula recently?

Blush is my thing. I love my blushes. I cannot limit my list to 3. All of my blushes are in the same narrow family of cool medium to dark pink shades. Not one of them is available today for purchase (excepting Amazon, Ebay, special outlets, etc.). Not one of them is near to pan yet. All of them are HE and no two are from the same brand. I haven’t bought a blush in about 3 years. Been tempted though —

A sculpting/contouring color: MAC Sculp
A matte pink-purple-mauve: MAC Breath of Plum
A slightly shimmer bronzer: MAC Trace of Gold

It’d be so much easier to say three i’ve had, but would never wear, lol. Orgasm, Laguna, and Original Hula. The 3 onlies would have to be ones that go with my usual lip colors. 1. CP Aphrodisiac vs. Surratt
La Rose du Soir vs. way old Nyx taupe. 2. Cooler: NARS Dolce Vita vs Penthouse vs Chic. 3. can’t pick a ‘regular’ red, (maybe the 3CE one?) so Mood Exposure vs anything from NARS summer DI. Guess I either cannot count, or cannot comply!

TF Frantic Pink– which is more of a pale but bright coral. Perfect for summer.

Chanel Rouge Profonde– That red blush that works– goes with everything autumn and winter.

And I also keep the Nars Wanted II palette bear by because it has a range of varied shades. It’s for deeper complexions, but because my face eats blush it works on me. Most used shade is the dusty pink– Exposed.

The first two are super easy: Clinique Nude Pop and MAC At Dusk (LE). The third…I don’t know! I’ll say Clinique Berry Pop, just to have a cooler option, but it’s basically a random pick.

This is hard for me as well. Can I do high end top 3 and low end top 3?

Illamasqua Naked Rose (my fave for life, nothing else compares honestly)
Hourglass Mood Exposure
Becca Flowerchild

Lotte London Drake (Justin is a close second–no one talks about these blushes and I don’t know why???)
Jordana Tawny Beige
Essence Satin Love

I haven’t tried Lottie London blush, but I LOVE their bronzer (Tan Time). I always have a backup of that. It’s one of those brands that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves.

Tarte Exposed, Physicians Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose, and Urban Decay Bittersweet. I’d really love to cheat and add a fourth, Milani Rose Powder Blush in Coral Cove, but I could get by using Exposed in its place.

MJ Flesh and Fantasy, Clinique Rosy POP (it’s the perfect not so cool pink) and Charlotte Tilbury Love Glow. (And because I cannot possibly follow directions, I’d have to include Hourglass Diffused Heat and UD Rapture!??‍♀️)

1. Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Lightgasm – cheating, I know, but i LOVE IT to death – the shimmer bronzer with the shimmer blush layered on top.
2. Surrat Barbe à Papa – the most perfect glistening pink – It’s prolly an h/l, but I use it as a blush
3. NYX Ombre Mauve Me – total workhorse

This is easy as I have three that I use all the time.
Chanel Golden Sun best contour for my coloring. I have purchased this numerous times!! (lasts a long time too) I have another Chanel blush called Reflux but it doesn’t last as
Too Face heart Trio in Pink (the longest lasting blush ever!!!)
Milani Lumanoso (sp?)

Given that I can’t remember the last time I wore blush, I’ll have to choose ColourPop’s Super Shock Cheeks in Flexitarian and Stole the Show, and…a bronzer or contour…um…dunno which one, but *a* bronzer/contour.

Nars Orgasm, the only blush that I have panned and replaced. And from the Hourglass Unlocked Palette Nude glow and Mood flush, I have this palette on my travels all the time.

Frankly Scarlet is a real stunner, isn’t it? I nearly passed on it because it was so scary bright but it’s one I treasure and love to bring out every autumn. I should probably pull it out of “storage” and wear it more often but that Dior blush I mentioned has really pushed so many former favourites into semi-retirement!

I came up with Nars Madly, Charlotte Tilbury Sex on Fire and Dior Rosy Glow.
But then I remembered the liquid blushes I’ve been using so…

Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk, Giorgio Armani A-line Blush in pink and Flower Beauty Blush Bomb in pinched.

Outlaw was discontinued at one time but it’s been back for awhile. I just saw it at Sephora on Sunday. It was my very first NARS blush.

Hah, there are only two that I even wear regularly. elf Tickled Pink (my daily blush) and Tarte Paaarty… I guess if I were to pick a third to also have the option to wear, it would be Wet n Wild Pearlescent Pink.

1. Chanel Lip Blush in Orange Explosif
2. elf All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade
3. NARS Dolce Vita

Also, I love that at this point I can guess what Christine’s picks will be 🙂

1. Tom Ford Cheek Colour | 01 Love Lust (they discontinued and reformulated this shade ?)
2. MAC See Me Blush (LE)
3. Anastasia Amrezy Highlighter (LE)

Everything’s dc’ed or LE. ?
