If you had to wear only one blush forever, what would it be?

Marc Jacobs Flesh & Fantasy (discontinued) is one I’ve worn a lot and find flatters my coloring and a slew of looks, from bold to more subtle.

I was sad to have missed out on the MJ Flesh & Fantasy.
Right now I would have to say Patrick Ta’s She So LA.
Ask me again in six months and there’s a good chance it will be different.

Becca’s Wisteria from the limited edition Blushed With Light palette. I love every shade in the palette but Wisteria looks so flattering on my skin tone and looks great with almost any look I put together.

Not a blush but the Milani XL bronzer in the 01 shade is the same color as my right cheek so when I apply it on my left cheek, everything is even and brighter. It is more a mauve than a bronze color on me.

Can someone let me know where this place is that allows only 1 palette, 1 lipstick, 1 blush, etc. so that when travel opens up again, I can assiduously AVOID it???

One blush. Either Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush or MAC Sweet Sentiment (if having only this as my blush means they’ll re-promote it, that might be worth the deprivation of “only one blush”!).

MAC Breath of Plum, and I just now desperately checked if it’s discontinued. 😅 This weekend I sadly discovered they discontinue the Sculpting and Shaping powders and I couldn’t even get my Sculpt and Emphasize backups.

Tarte Paaarty looks natural on my skin and I can make it work with pretty much any look, so I’d go for that one if I had to. I love blush so have many options, but Paaarty is always what I reach for when I’m in a hurry and don’t want to play around with serious color matching.

Admittedly, I don’t own a ton of blush, but my favorite hands down is Saemmul Naked Peach. I even tolerate the fact it is scented. I’m extremely fair with cool, but not overly pink undertone and it suits me perfectly. I actually bought a backup, which I almost never do.

Probably Besame’s Raspberry powder blush (now d/c). Their crimson rouge is awfully nice, too, but the raspberry powder shade is just so versatile for any time of year and any outfit/occasion.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso. I seem to keep buying rose gold blushes but I always come back to this one, hit the pan in at least 7 of these during the last 10 years!
