There are so many blushes out on the market, how does one choose? There are three on the market right now that I just love. So let’s get things started.
1) NYX BAKED BLUSH IN PINK FETISH – I am a big fan of these bakes blushes. The powder is nice and smooth, and unlike some dome blushes it does not form a crust if not used for a few days. The blush’s formula is filled with a load of pigments in order to provide a glow and highlight to the face. What’s great about this blush is it can be used wet or dry, depending on what kind of mood you are in. The baked blush retails for $6.99. It may be purchased at ULTA and most drugstores.
2) CLINIQUE CHEEK POP IN ROSY POP – Normally I do not shop Clinique’s line of blushes when I am in the market for a blush. Not that there is something wrong with the blush itself, I just tend to lean towards other lines of cosmetics. But when I was browsing in Sephora, I came across this beautiful colored blush by Clinique. The colors are not too strong and not too light. It is easy to blend and lasts awhile. And even though it is a powder, the consistency is creamy and silky. The blush retails for $21.00, and may be purchased at Sephora, Macy’s and Nordtrom’s.
3) URBAN DECAY AFTERGLOW BLUSH IN FETISH – I am a big Urban Decay fan. I have never been disappointed in the quality of their cosmetics, and this is no different. The blush’s formula is fine, powdery and very blendable. And as promised, it lasts for at least 8 hours. The color Fetish is perfect for my medium toned skin. It is easy to blend, adds a subtle flush to my skin and does not comes across as being ‘cakey’. The Afterglow blush retails for $26.00 and may be purchased at Sephora, ULTA and www.urbandecay.com.
Those are the blushes I am wearing now and recommend all of them for summertime wear. All of them are blendable, pigmented and easy to wear. All of the blushes come in other colors in addition to the ones mentioned, which will compliment any skin tone.
