It wasn’t until the past year or so I really began to like blush. I tend to reach for more nude, beige color blushes. I find when I wear those colors it almost acts like a second bronzer and warms up my face even more. But, before I learned this, I reached for more typical ‘pinky’ blush colors.
- NARS Blush. The shade ‘Orgasm’ is by far the most popular of NARS blushes. This is the shade I use, too. Although it looks like the pink I said I avoid, when put on it’s much softer and has a nice shimmer to it that accents my highlight. But, if over applied, it can look super pink.. This blush sells for $30, as NARS tends to be on the pricier side.
- NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush. This powder blush comes in some great shades. However, this blush isn’t as pigmented as the others mentioned in this post. But, for only $5, it may be worth it. I would recommend going crazy and buying two or three shades and then seeing which one you find yourself reaching for the most. Then, you can find a more pigmented, or higher quality blush in a similar shade that you know you’ll really like!
- MAC Powder Blush. I have this blush in the shade ‘pinch me’. One of the great things about MAC products are their pigmentation. Unfortunately for me, the ‘pinch me’ shade is far too pink for what I like. So I have to apply this blush lightly or I look like a rag doll. This blush is high quality and I’m sure with the right shade, its a winner! For $23, I think it’s a steal, too!
All three of these products come in other great colors! My favorite of the three is the MAC powder blush, because of its pigmentation and how much product you get. But as I mentioned before, I would recommend trying out the NYX blush first since it’s cheaper and you can get a few to find your favorite. I hope you found this post helpful and I would love to hear what you think of these products below!
