What color and finish of blush are you still looking for?

A soft, plummy-brown with a satin finish–like Marc Jacobs Flesh & Fantasy but pinker and a little more shimmery. I think the closest to my idea would be Lethal’s Ornamental, which I do love!

I love the finish of MAC’s Mineralize blushes and still kick myself for not buying Subtle Breeze (a gorgeous cool pink). I purchased Early Morning (released in the same collection) because it reviewed so well here but it’s so NOT a good colour for me but the texture and finish are both divine and I can’t help thinking that its “collection sister” would have been perfection for me. The closest I’ve come is MAC’s Sweet Sentiment (Limited Edition, of course, so no chance to get a backup) and along with Dior’s Rosy Glow Awakening Blush, it’s the blush I’m most likely to finish up in my lifetime

A blush similar to Nars Madly which was a soft brown with some orange and peach simmer in the satin group, or MAC Sincere which was a coral-beige sheertone blush. Both sadly d/c.

Oh what a question.
As I have very fair skin, I struggle with blush pigmentation. I know I know, just use a lighter hand but I don’t like to have to approach my blushes with trepidation. I like to go to ham on them!

So I am still looking for the perfect, cruelty free, buildable very pale nude with soft shimmer & longevity in preferably a liquid/cream form.
Did I mention it also needs to be available to the UK without massive shipping costs?

It’s out there. I know it is.

I too am not buying, I have everything I need, but all my blushes are matte, which allows for versatility. If I want a glowier look, I can add highlighter. This way my drawer isn’t crowded with too much ‘stuff’ as George Carlin put it.

Hmm. I would love to have a creamy, rosy brown shade, like Salt New York’s “Cocoa,” with better longevity and a slightly less dewy finish. (My skin gets glowy enough on its own!) Oooh, and/or a cream version of PMG’s Fleurtatious.

Hmm, other than either putting a Pro Pan Blush duo together at a freestanding MAC store with Blushbaby and another shade on my WL, or taking advantage of Ulta’s 50% off when their MAC blushes offer comes up sometime during their 21 Days Of Beauty… except that I truly DREAD their horrible shipping packaging!
Besides that, I’m not needing any more than what I have. As it is, I know that I’ll never get to use up everything I have.

I have been using an Ulta single eyeshadow as a blush the color is Beauty Junkie. I love it. It’s a little shimmery, taupe/mauve duochrome shifting color. I positively love it, but it’s small and I go through many of them. While only $8.00 I wish I could find a similar BIG blush and call it a day for a while. I do hunt, boy do I hunt, in stores and here at Temptalia. Nope can’t find anything close. You asked….I long winded answered 🤍 Happy Labor Day all 🤍 Autumn 🤍

Satin finish, glowy with depth and color that shows up on tanned skin. I’ve been trying out different combos of cream and powder blush and bronzer. Patrick Ta’s She’s That Girl, coverFx Sunkissed Bronze, Fenty cream Rose Latte, Makeup Geek Summer Fling, these are shades I’ve been layering and buffing in for a burnished bronze, pink, peach look. : )
