ahhh, blush: my beloved 🙂

Skin tone/coloring: fair, neutral-to-cool

Favorite limited edition blush: Clinique’s Ballerina Pink Cheek Pop, Etude House’s Blossom Cheek in Blossom Breeze. Those might be the only LEs I have.

Blush I wish would be re-released: Clinique’s Ballerina Pink Cheek Pop as a single available in the western market. I love that color and dread finishing it in the Cool Down palette.

Last blush I panned/finished: Etude House’s Lovely Cookie Blusher in Strawberry Choux. Working on another one now!

Hello 🙂 I find that maybe Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Peroxide or Mac Glow Play Blush in Cheeky Devil might be dupes for Clinique’s Ballerina Pink? You probably tried every possible dupe but just maybe it’ll help 🙂 <3

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
What’s your favorite limited edition blush? MAC Sweet Sentiment Mineralize Blush
What blush do you wish would be re-released? MAC Subtle Breeze Mineralize Blush, which I was just talking about here the other day (it’s why I got Sweet Sentiment – they seem to be rather close; I would be darned happy if they’d re-release Sweet Sentiment as well)
What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? MAC Desert Rose. It’s the ONLY blush I’ve hit pan on and finished (well, almost finished – there was a bit left in the pan when I B2M’d it)

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium, yellow undertones, MAC NC 23ish, hazel eyes, brown and blond hair

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? MAC Sweet Vision Magic Dust powder or MAC Seduced At Sea. I love the effervescent color of the Sweet Vision, the powder design/imprint and that it came in such a generous amount. As far as Seduced At Sea, there was something so very special to me about that whole Alluring Aquatic collection so it might just be sentimental but love it nonetheless.

What blush do you wish would be re-released? MAC Cubic, Prism, Tenderling or Buff blushes. Maybe in the Mineralized Skin Finish version.

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? MAC Cubic, Prism and Tenderling. I have plenty of dupes so this is entirely sentimental.

Cubic and Tenderling are faves of mine too. I still have plenty of Tenderling left but shame they canned it. Such a versatile color.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? NARS Fetishized

What blush do you wish would be re-released? Sephora Colorful Blush in Tranquil (my contour shade), NARS Fetishized, NARS Freesoul, NARS Almeria, MAC Oh My, Passion!, MAC Pink Cult, MAC Spring Flock, Urban Decay Afterglow Blushes, Too Faced Love Flush Blushes, Wet n Wild ColorIcon Blush in Rose Champagne.

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? Probably a jar of bareMinerals Rose Radiance a few years ago. LOL I finished my last backup of e.l.f. Studio Blush in Gotta Glow (DC) a few months ago, but I feel like that’s cheating, as despite it’s name it was a light gold highlighter. I’ve almost finished up a Sephora Colorful Blush in Tranquil (DC), but again, kind of cheating because I use it as contour.

Sephora Tranquil was pretty much just renamed & rebranded to Colorful Contour in Second Chance. The formula seems a bit creamier, but it could just be because my Tranquil is so old, and a wee bit more pigmented, but the overall shade is all but identical, and at least worth looking into.

Just reminded me that I forgot about MAC Oh My, Passion and Nars Fetishised! My brain has been on half speed all day today, it needs a reboot, LOL 🤭

Whew – I feel so much better seeing your long list, Rachel. I thought I was sort of breaking the rules (insofar as there are rules here) by listing 2 blushes. I probably would/could have/should have added 1 or 2 more….

If I say CP Aphrodisiac is nearly done, and they d/c’d it, I guess it would qualify as grossly LE. I would definitely get another one, were they to re-release it.

Light skin,red hair

My favorite LE blush is MAC Instant Chic. Perfect pink/coral
Blush I’d like re-released, MAC Instant Chic
I don’t remember hitting pan, I have too many.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes).

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? MAC Spring Flock and Nars Adrenaline.

What blush do you wish would be re-released? UD Rapture Afterglow Blush!

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? I’ve hit pan on my beloved UD Rapture Afterglow Blush…😭

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/brown eyes, warm brown hair.

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? I don’t think I have one!

What blush do you wish would be re-released? Not re-released, really, but I do wish Flower Beauty would expand their range of the Blush Bombs.

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? I’m SO close to hitting pan on my Glossier Cloud Paint in Beam.

Your skin tone/coloring:light, MAC NC 20

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? I love a blush from the MAC Villains collection called Darkly My Dear. Beautiful plum shade.

What blush do you wish would be re-released? MAC Cubic. Wish I picked it up when I had the chance and I can never fund it on Poshmark. Also MAC Strada or NARS Douceur

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? NARS Orgasm. I’ve had it for years and I still have so much product left!

Coloring: pale, cool olive

Only blush I’ve hit pan on in the last 20 years is Benefit Bella Bamba. I’ve tried soooo many dupes, but none can compare. Why oh why was it discontinued???

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones and low-contrast eyes/hair.

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? “Hush” from the UD Gwen Stefani blush palette–so glowy!

What blush do you wish would be re-released? I’d really like to try the original Warm Soul from MAC. A lot of people seem extremely attached to it. 🙂

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? I don’t think I’ve ever hit pan or finished a blush!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

What’s your favorite limited edition blush? I don’t really have a favourite limited edition blush, but if I did it would be Cover FX in Soft Peach – which is impossible to get here in Melbourne.

What blush do you wish would be re-released? EA’s Sweet Peach

What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? EA’s Sweet Peach!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands. My everyday base products are Fenty-Amber Match Stick as cheek contour and Pro Filt’r concealer and Soft Matte foundation in 110.
What’s your favorite limited edition blush? ColourPop Super Shock Thnks fr th Mmrs, from the Call It Whatever collection. Thnks fr th Mmrs was the only item from the collection that I had a chance to get, but I still love that they did an entire collection themed around rock/alternative music! Now if only they’d do a collection with a similar rock theme but using cool shades instead of warm…
What blush do you wish would be re-released? NARS Satellite of Love highlighting blush.
What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? None whatsoever.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, cool neutral
What’s your favorite limited edition blush? Mac Sea Me, Hear Me
What blush do you wish would be re-released? Mac Prism and Cubic
What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? Diorskin Nude Paradise Duo in pink. The bronzer side is pretty much done, but the pink side is so hard pressed and pigmented that it looks like I’m not even using it! But I am! I really am!!

Now that I haven’t been able to tan for a while (coronavirus) my skin is light/medium neutral. I really don’t recall any LE blush that I thought was so impressive that I MUST have it over all the others. I do pan/use up blushes (and powders, bronzers and contours) fairly regularly. i think I’ve gone through 5 blushes in the last 12 months. Most recently was Kosas in Papaya 1972.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-light medium neutral
What’s your favorite limited edition blush?: Flower blush in peach primrose (limited in Australia for some reason?)
What blush do you wish would be re-released? Ciate to-glow blushes (No longer sold in MECCA Australia)
What was the last blush you hit pan on (or finished)? Clinique blushing blush powder blush in Aglow
