Addicted to Blush Tag
I haven't been tagged by anyone to do this, but I saw Ling from the Cosmetic Critic blog do it and it's been a long time since I've done a post about my blush collection in general! It's definitely grown in recent months, and this tag asks some interesting questions. Let's get on with it!
What Colour of Blush Suits you the Most?
I wear any colour of blush that I feel like- if I had to pick one, though, I'd say red blush suits me the most. I asked my roommate, though, and she said anything orange.
Some cream blushes
I don't fuck with loose blush. At all. Or loose cosmetics other than face powder. And I wear cream and gel and mousse- anything non-powder- blush exclusively in the spring and summer, and powder blush exclusively in the fall and winter.
Favourite Shimmery Blush?
I don't have that many- almost all of my blushes are matte- but I wear essence's silky touch blush in Autumn Peach enough to make up for my lack of shimmery blushes. It's a peach- a colour I don't normally wear- with a gorgeous golden sheen that I can't get enough of.
Favourite Matte Blush?
Illamasqua's Excite. It's a bold light orangey red, it's soooo soft and smooth but pigmented as all hell. One light tap of a stippling brush and you're done.
Favourite Cream Blush?
Mmmm I'm cheating here and using a gel blush- the Josie Maran Watercolour Cheek Gelees. They're sheer, which I normally wouldn't like, but they're soooo blendable and gorgeous and natural and look literally like watercolour on the cheeks.
Favourite Drugstore Blush?
I don't wear it as often as I used to, but I used to love the HELL out of my Joe Fresh Colour Adjust Blush in Coral. It's so bright!
Favourite High End Blush?
Maybe my Clinique Cheek Pop in Pansy Pop, because it's unique in my collection. I love purple! The formula on this is nice, but the pigmentation is a little lacking for me- it's very buildable, though, so I guess it doesn't matter. Basically, I pick Pansy Pop because I don't wanna answer with Illamasqua's Excite for, like, every question...
Favourite Bright Blush?
Aaaaand that goes to Illamasqua Excite again. So! Bright!
Biggest Blush Disappointment?
Ugh, NARS Orgasm. I don't like it. There's glitter in it and I just do not like it at all- I'll take essence's Autumn Peach over it any day of the year.
Best Blush Packaging?
I love my Milani Rose Powder blushes. The gold-coloured plastic and the intricate powder petals really do it for me.
What's on Your Blush Wish List?
The Hourglass Ambient Blushes! I want them alll...
Number 1 Holy Grail Blush?
The first one I ever got. I finished my old one- and for someone with a collection like mine to actually repurchase a blush is a big deal. It's the Body Shop All in One Cheek Colour in Bubblegum.
Well, that's the tag! I don't know who's done this tag already- but I'd love to see Chelle from Makeup Your Mind and Julie from Swatch and Review do this!
