I have rounded up my holy grail blushes, I sorted through my many blushers and thought ‘which ones would I re purchase if I lost or used up’ and these are the blushes!

Blusher isn’t a complete staple in my everyday makeup routine like bronzer is but I do wear it most days and when I do I use the same ones over and over.

Swatch order Top-Bottom

Mac Mineralize Blush Just a Wisp

This is a Pale Pink blusher it reminds me of a Barbie shade! This is my favourite blush ever. It’s very light and a little goes along way so you need the tiniest bit on your brush.

Benefit Dandelion

This is more of a matte blush with some speckles of shimmer, lovely shade for pale skin and blends very easily. Benefit describes this as a Ballerina Pink which is perfect to describe the shade.

The Balm Hot Mama

This is a classic coral shade. This is the blush shade I reach for the most I find shimmery coral shades so flattering on my skin tone. My friend Rebecka bought me this for my last birthday and sent it to me from Sweden! The balm is now being sold in super drug.

Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush 82 Reflex

The balm hot mama is a good dupe for this blusher as they are very similar as you can see from the swatches, I love Chanel makeup and this blush has such good colour pay off and looks so nice with its golden shimmer undertones.

Korres Blush Zea Mays 47 Orange Brown

I bought this blush in a set with a mascara from a Pharmacy in Santorini, very random purchase but I had to get something Korres when in Santorini. This is an Orange toned blush and I really like it! I probably like it more because it reminds me of Santorini!

Mac Mineralized Blush Warm Soul

I don’t have any other blushes this type of colour it is a golden tan shade with a hint of beige/orange. I can only get away with this shade when I have a tan as it is darker than most of my other blushers.

Sleek Blush By 3 Lace

I only use the middle shade in this palette which is the bottom swatch on the above photo. This is my most pigmented blush so you only need the tiniest bit and need to make sure it is all blended. Lovely coral shade which golden shimmer. I wish this shade was sold seperarly instead of in the trio.

 

Thanks for reading.

With Love Helena xxxx

  1. OOOOOO the Benefit Dandelion blush looks so pretty! I actually don’t have that one and haven’t tried it yet either. It looks so pretty, I might go do that now after seeing your swatch. 🙂
