My Top 6 | Blushers

My next top 6 makeup products post is on my favourite blushers. I usually go for a pink blusher as I find it compliments my skin the best, but depending on what overall look I am going for decides which shade I will pick. See my last two Top 6 posts for lipstick HERE and lip gloss HERE!



Swatches from first photo | Swatches from second photo
Left to right:
Collection 2000 Blush in 04 Trouble: this is a rosy pink blush with shimmer in it. It's a very easy shade to wear but because there is shimmer in it, I don't apply a lot of it otherwise my cheeks look very shiny. These blushers have a nice formula and pigmentation and blend very easily.

Collection 2000 Blush in 02 Bashful: this blusher is more of a coral colour with no shimmer in it. Again it's easy to blend and has a lovely colour pay off on the cheeks.

Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks in Pink Cloud: a very soft light pink that gives a lovely flush of colour to the cheeks. The product is quite build-able so if you want a more intense colour you can achieve this. It's also a great everyday blusher as it has a natural finish (everyday makeup).

Makeup Academy (M.U.A) Blusher in Shade 2: this is a lovely pink blush that again can be worn as an everyday blusher as it gives a pretty flushed finish. It has little bits of shimmer in but not too much to make your cheeks shiny. The colour is also build-able and has good staying power, especially for the fact it only costs £1!

George at Asda Shimmer Me! Shimmering Powder in 2 Cherub: this product offers quite a lot of colours in one. The pink section can be used as a shimmer blusher and the white on its own as a highlight. In the swatch I mixed all 5 colour strips together to give a pretty shimmery rosy pink.With products like this you can mix different sections of the product to make different colours. I only use a little bit of this because there is a lot of shimmer in it. I find this product great for the Summer.

No7 Poppy King Blossoming Lip and Cheek Duo: this is a very pigmented rosy pink colour that can be used as a cream blush or a lip stain. It's a lovely product to place on the apples of the cheeks and have another powder blush on top to blend it in. Again it's great for Summer as it doesn't give you a caked powder look.

What are your favourite blushers?

    1. Maybe try out some of the MUA or natural collection ones :)? They're cheap so if you don't like one it's not wasting loads of money xxx

  5. The Asda/ George one looks gorgeous, almost like a budget version of the Shimmer Brick by Bobbi Brown. Do you know if you can buy them online? I really want one <3 x

    1. I couldn't find it on the Asda website :( But I bought mine from an Asda living store and I'm sure any Asda that sells makeup will have their line stocked in too! xx

  9. Great review! A blusher is the one thing I'm lacking, I have Benefit High Beam which is called a highlighter and works in the exact opposite, but it's pretty good!
