My first one ever was from Jane cosmetics, I dont remember the name of the shade. MY first MAC blush was gingerly, and I still use it.

My first frΓ₯n MAC was Buff. ItΒ΄s a quiet matte brown. Now I think itΒ΄s some for shading than to a blush. Just love Well-Dressed now.

I have got to check out this Margin blush, everyone’s raving about it! πŸ™‚

My first blush was an Avon brush in rose lustre or something like that. I didn’t own a blush for a long time, only got my first one maybe 5 years ago? Now I have plenty of blushes, including lots of Mac. (My first Mac blush was Gentle, although for me Petticoat MSF is more of a blush and I think I got that before Gentle.)

MAC Margin Blush as well. So great for all skin tones. Gives the face a youthful glow. I love it and use it almost everyday.

I believe it was MAC Style blush… It was too shimmery, so I changed it to Gingerly πŸ™‚ I honestly don’t need tons of blushes. I’d like to check out Margin though πŸ™‚

Haha, me too! I tried my first makeup around fourth grade, and of course it was all drugstore/stuff my mom gave me that she didn’t feel the need to keep anymore. She still gives me stuff she doesn’t want, lol!

My first and still favourite blush is the now discontinued MAC Cheekhue in Da Da Delight.

I’d asked the MAC artist for something that would give me a post-workout type glow/flush. She was dead-on. When I heard they were discontinuing it, I bought 4 tubes. Still working my way through it.

Nars Torrid and I still use it very frequently. I also own only four blushes, so I use all of my blushes on a regular basis.

The world’s palest CG blush. I figured because I was fair I should get the lightest one – but it was practically white.

My first MAC blush is unknown. I got it at Nordstrom’s around December 07, It was from the Antiquetise (However you spell it… haha) Collection. & It was exclusive from Nordstrom’s, It came with a lipglass (coral color and unknown name), and a little charm pigment in Shimmertime. Plus it’s in white packaging… I wish I knew the name πŸ™ The color is very dark frosty/shimmery coral dark color. It’s beautiful.

My first blush (that didn’t come from a drugstore) was Blushbaby by MAC. Such a fabulous, neutral and wearable colour!!

I first wore blush in high school & it was a gel blush by Bonne Bell (yuck, i know, but it was ’95 & BB was kinda cool then). Then in college I switched to powder blush & my first was Stila’s Brava. I wore that blush & that blush only for 5 years until they stopped selling it in-stores.

My very first blush was one by Faces Cosmetics that I still love!! My first MAC blush was Pinch O Peach.

I just got into make-up not too long ago, actually this year. I think being 18 is an appropriate age to start wearing make-up, heh. My first blush was from NARS called Luster. And my first MAC blush was I guess Tippy and Fun & Games.

EstΓ©e Lauder in Peche Nuances

Gah, it keeps surprising me how many times i mention that blush :p

Favourite blush? EstΓ©e Lauder
Everyday blush? EstΓ©e Lauder
Your first blush? …

The Body Shop Sparkle and Shimmer Powder Puff in Sunset Peach! It’s a shimmering pinky peach with orange tones that can be amplified when applied heavily/wet/heavily WHILE wet, lol! I got it on sale at Christmas, and I’m pretty sure it’s discontinued. I like to dust a bit on the apples of cheeks with some bronzer to contour this summer. πŸ˜€

My first was a covergirl blush trio, my first mac blush was melba which I heard is the oldest blush MAC has.

My first blush ever was probably some random Maybelline compact. My first real non-drugstore blush was Bare Escentuals Golden Gate. Then my first MAC blush was Sincere.

Haha, just some crap brush from Target. I used to always use the sponges until I started reading about it HERE, and decided to try a brush. I’ve never went back. lol Now I have a set from Sephora. It’s not the highest quality, but it still works wonderfully.

I am a CLOWN. I thought it said brush, not blush. Whoops. Well, anyway, I’m sure it was Covergirl, but I never started using blush until I bought some at Sephora in their brand. I don’t remember the shade though.

Smashbox Aperature… I love it but can’t find it anywhere anymore πŸ™ I got it from Ulta about a year ago

My first blushes were: Benefit’s Dallas (I still love the natural glow and color that it goves me) and NARS orgasm.

MAC gingerly, I had just come home from Thailand and had changed from NW20 to NW35 in foundation (yikes!) and this blush looks sooo nice on tanned skin =)

When I was younger, I started off with drugstore makeup. First blush I bought was cover girls blush in “rose silk.” It was pretty but I never wore it because I thought it smelled funny. First blush I actually wore often was milani’s “luminous.”

It was from Maybelline in a dark berry shade. I used it right up to pan. That took almost 3 years! My first MAC blush was Goddess from the Raquel Welch collection 2 years ago. It’s a beautiful matte coral peach shade. I use it sparingly since its so nice.

it was one that my bff got me in this huge set but my first mac blush was springsheen….loves it

My very first was some blush from a department store palette I got as a holiday gift.. It was in the 6th grade and I used to PACK it on like it was translucent powder.. EVERYWHERE! haha.. so embarassing =[.. I gave up on blush (after I saw a picture of myself looking like a clown) until freshman year of high school.. I bought Benefit Dallas, NARS Orgasm, and MAC Sunbasque simultaneously.. and they’re still some of my go-to blushes now.. =] BTW Christine I love these ‘trip down memory lane’ questions.. hehe =]

nars orgasm and macs sweet as cocoa. i use to think that blush wasn’t for me since i have pink undertones.

In high school it was a peachy-pink Cover Girl blush. After getting back into makeup as an adult, my first blush was MAC’s Peachtwist.

my first blush was wet and wild in naive, which i still really like. my first mac blush was buff. which i also really like.

Ah, this one I remember dearly… I stole it from my mom when I was 12 and wore it for the next 10 years – Clinique Rhubarb. Sadly, I think it’s discontinued now.

You guys all had awesome blushes. I started using “makeup” in the 3rd or 4th grade, and I was in Catholic school so I was forbidden to use anything but lip balm. Can you see where this is going? My first “lipstick” and “blush” was Avon’s Cherry lip balm. πŸ™‚ My first “nail polish” were those scented markers!

Dude, are you my long lost triplet (triplet bc i already have a real twin!) or sumthin? My first makeup was drugstore junk my mom gave me in third grade, and i first painted MY nails with markers! AND, I went to Catholic school too πŸ™‚ What I did to get by the ‘only-lip-balm-no-gloss’ rule was I used the tube of liquid Carmex as a gloss because it Was very glossy, but it was a balm formula. My fifth grade teacher walked up to me and asked “Is it lipgloss?” and I showed her the Carmex tube and she said “Okay” and walked away. I also put the Carmex solid lip balm pot lid on the Burt’s Bees Raspberry Lipgloss pot and took off the sticker to make my teachers think I was puttin on Carmex, and not gloss, haha! I was so sneaky πŸ˜‰

Don’t remember my first blush (at a dept store when I was 13 (80s), but it was pretty nice.

My first MAC blushes were Cubic and Prism. Long ago used up & b2m’d! The last sev yrs my HG’s have been Blushbaby & Mocha.

Mac’s fleur power. Really BRIGHT pink but if you blend it in enough it looks really cutee :]
i still use it Occasionally..

First non drugstore was Bobbi Brown in Sand Pink.
Ive since upgraded to Chanel Mocha for winter and NARS Orgasm for summer.
