What Are My Favorite Blushes?

by - Tuesday, August 21, 2018

I have a sizable collection of blushes. Even though I love wearing all of them on a daily basis, there are only a few that have garnered my favor and become my favorite blushes.

Milani Baked Blush
The Milani Baked Blushes have three main qualities that make them my favorite: they are affordable at $8 per piece, they are available in a wide variety of colors (the Baked Blushes currently come in 11 colors), and they are multi-functional: they act as a blush, have shimmery highlighter marbled into the blush, and act as a sculptor as well. I have four of the Baked Blushes: Berry Amore, my most used shade which is a deep, slightly berry-toned pink with golden highlight running through it, Luminoso, the famed Baked Blush which is said to be a dupe for NARS Orgasm as it's got that same peachy pink color, Bella Bellini, which is a rose gold peach, and Dolce Pink, which is a bright pink.

Milani Rose Blush 
The Rose Blush from Milani isn't as famous as its Baked Blush sister, but the quality is still pretty good. At $9 per piece, it is slightly more expensive than the Baked Blush, but unlike the Baked Blush, the Rose Blushes are matte and have no glitter running through them save for one. I have three of the Rose Blushes: Romantic Rose, my most used shade which is a neutral dusty rose (and is also rumored to be a dupe for Tarte's Exposed blush), Tea Rose, which is a subtle but neutral bright pink, and Blossomtime Rose, which is only available on the Milani website and Target and is a peachy pink with gold glitter.

Ulta Mad for Mauve Blush Palette
I don't like buying face palettes often because I feel like those are for makeup artists, but the Ults Mad for Mauve Blush Palette is an exception. The palette comes with six blushes, of which three are shimmery and three are matte. The palette also is quite compact, which I like and does not come with a mirror. The six shades in the Mad for Mauve Blush Palette are Primrose, a neutral shimmery bright pink, Seashell, a pale, almost beige looking pink, Blossom, a pale neutral pink, Raspberry, a matte slightly deep rose pink, Tulip, a pale beige-toned pink, and Pink Punch, a deep raspberry pink

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush 
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes are very expensive at $38 per piece, but they are quite beautiful. The outer packaging is a reflective dark metal and on the inside, it comes with a mirror. The blush itself is very beautiful, as it's marbled with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. I have the shade Mood Exposure, which seems to be a very popular shade as it's a beautiful neutral plum.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush 
The Amazonian Clay Blushes are matte in finish, and Tarte recently changed the packaging so the blushes can be removed and placed in a Z-palette if you so wished. I have the shade Exposed which is a beautiful nude pink.

Laura Geller Blush n Brighten
The Blush n' Brighten works the same way as the Milani Baked Blushes. They are meant to add a flush of color to the face, and the blushes have highlighter marbled into the product as well. I have the shade Pink Buttercream which is a neutral, albeit bright pink.
