MAC Gingerly… It’s a pretty medium peach, a little brown. I got this in August when I re-entered the makeup game and basically went to MAC and got my whole makeup routine there. I basically let the St choose everything and this blush was her everyday pick for me… I have to agree. It’s a nice subtle flush of colour when I don’t want to look like I’m wearing blush. Plus I can be really heavy handed, but this is near impossible to overdo. Love it!

Haha! πŸ˜€ If you think it, it will be! πŸ˜› Some photos of me taken in the dark show my eyes glowing! I can only liken it to the fact they are very similar to cats eyes and sensitive to light, but I think you glow like a light! Your hugs reach everyone like the sun’s rays!! πŸ™‚ <3 *Huuuuuggggggssss!*

Dior Diorblush in Redissimo. It’s a beautiful coral red with the odd bit of sparkle and a slightly luminous finish. It’s quite intense for pale skin but applied with a light hand and/or a brush that doesn’t pick up too much product it looks gorgeous! I’m sure it would look lovely on darker skintones, maybe more so than on me. πŸ˜€

Lucky you, Christine! I must admit that I’m not find of Angelique at all! But the other.. Yes, please! πŸ˜€ The last blush I wore was Charlotte Tilbury Love Glow. I am absolutely in love with how effortless it is to achieve a beautiful flush! I have nothing negative to say about it! πŸ˜› I am quite impressed! πŸ™‚

In the past week I’ve also used theBalm InStain in Argyle, theBalm Stainiac in Beauty Queen, Nars Multiple in Orgasm, Benefit Coralista, & Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink. Some were layered.

L’Oreal Paris Visible Lift Blush (can’t recall color). I love these cream to powder blushes. Quick and easy .. swipe on with fingers and go ..


Not counting lipstick/liner, I wear Bobbi Brown’s powder blush… and the shade is actually called “Blush”. It’s a great, rich pink and surprisingly wearable for pale skin!

An embarrassingly *old* L’OrΓ©al True Match blush in Sculpted Rose. I don’t recall when I bought it, but it was when they were still in the clear square case… I’ve been wearing it all week.

Jordana Color Tint Blush Stick in “Apple Cheeks.” It seems counter-intuitive, but as I get paler in the winter, the better this super vivid shade looks. It blends out to a really natural-looking flush.

I love these so much that I bought the whole line and like to mix them sometimes, too.

YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush in #4 Orange Fougueux w/ TheBalm Cindy Loumanizer (on NC15 skin tone)

I adore YSL’s Kiss & Blush! They look so good on both the lips and cheeks and blend out beautifully. I paired this blush with the YSL Couture Palette in #3 Afrique for an orangey-bronze eye w/ a dark brown shadow smudged into the lashline (Kevyn Aucoin Coffee Bean).

I always start with Benefit’s HOOLA and then use Nars’ Orgasm for the “pop of color” on the apple of my cheek. I sometimes use Laguna instead of Hoola, but the concept is the same. That’s my typical go-to for blush.

theBalm’s InStain blush in Pinstripe. I’ve been wearing it quite a bit lately. I like it better on my complexion in the winter than I do on my tanned complexion in the summer!
