Blush favorites

Based on countless product testing, here are some blushes I think would suit morena skin tones well. This is just part one, because there are so many. Part two, coming very soon!

Anyway, you might want to check these out:

1. L'Oreal Blush Delice in Pink Grapefruit
- A pink powder blush with light shimmer. One of my HG blushes and one of my favorites in the Blush Delice line. In general, I don't like using the brushes that come with L'oreal's Blush Delice because it's scratchy and it tends to streak, so I just use my regular blush brush.

2. MAC Dollymix
- A MAC blush bestseller, this shade practically suits all skin tones. It looks kind of scary in the pan, but when you put it on, it looks really good on your skin. MAC blushes are really pigmented so go easy on the application.

3. NARS Orgasm
- One of my most used blushes. Ever.

4. Body Shop Blush in Golden Pink
- This blush esembles NARS Orgasm and MAC Springsheen but it's definitely more affordable.

5. Awake Stardom Pure Blush in Burnished Honey
- I stumbled onto this while I was checking out their eyeshadow palettes. At first the color didn't seem striking enough for me to try it, but the saleslady at the counter told me to check it out so okay, I did. I'm all for checking new stuff out anyway. I'm glad I did, because like so many other blushes, the color transforms on your cheeks. Pick this up if you're going for a neutral shade.

6. L'Oreal Blush in Fresh Papaya
- Another favorite Blush Delice product, this blush is an apricot shade with light shimmer. Love love love. Gives the most natural sheen which is really perfect especially if you have a nice golden tan or if you've just come back from the beach.

7. NARS Cactus Flower
- like MAC Dollymix, it looks scary in the pan, but when you put it on, it fades onto your skin very nicely. It's a cream blush so it's perfect especially if you have dry skin. Use your fingers to blend it in.

8. Shu Uemura P Orange 58 D
- My favorite among the Shu Uemura blushes. It looks dark-orangey in the pan but gives you just the right pop of color when you apply it on your cheeks.

Hi Liz! I love the subtle shimmer too. I hope they don't discontinue the Blush Delice line. I heard they're already phasing out Pink Grapefruit but I'm not sure. =(

i can't wait for beach season to come up. :)

I have L'Oreal Fresh Papaya and I love L'oreal's Blush Delice Line. I also love Ever Bilena Blushers since they have a browner undertone.

I just recently discovered Paul and Joe Blush in Morrocan Orange. I'm practically attached to it. It's perfect for tisays and morenas too!

Hi Bambi! I heard about Ever Bilena's blushers too. And that Paul and Joe Moroccan Orange sounds super interesting! I'll try them out soon! =D
