Blushing Beauty

Hello Lovelies,
Just a quick peak at my rather small yet perfectly formed blush collection. 3 to be precise.

Now I love blusher for that quick and healthy flush of colour. It really helps to perk up a dull complexion. I don't really wear bronzer as I have a very pale skin and find it hard to pull off. So these three beauties serve as a lovely middle ground between crazy e/s and uber bright lipstick for every day wear.

I'm looking for some new blush colours too (maybe a brighter hot pink :P), so if there are any you'd recommend. don't hesitate to leave a comment :)

MAC Blushcreme-Ladyblush        MAC Powder Blush-Well Dressed
MaxFactor Creamy Blush -Soft Murano

MAC Blushcreme Ladyblush - This is a lovely warm coral colour, that would flatter most skin tones, it matches mine perfectly and looks 'barely there' whilst still adding a hint of colour. The creamy texture is wonderful over liquid and cream foundation, really easy to blend with a brush or fingers and it stays put all day.
MAC Powder Blush Well Dressed - I'm sure you have all heard of this particular colour from MAC. It is a lovely light baby pink with Silver fleck in it. It is shimmery without being over the top and is really compliments a dark smokey eye. Also buildable.

Max Factor Soft Murano - This is a fairly recent addition to my blush family and I am rather glad I bought it. It is a deep burgundy red, great for adding a little extra colour for photos and a little more drama for a night out. Yet again the colour pay off is great and it lasts for ages on the skin. Although the packaging is rather small, a little goes a long way so it is certainly worth it.

Finally, some swatches...

Much Love 


  1. I love Blushcremes, I bought Lilicent & Brit Wit recently. By the looks of your Ladyblush swatch, I might have to give that a go when I'm next at MAC!

  2. They're great aren't they.
    Mines the old formula, but they've carried the colour through into the new Cremeblend blush line :)

  3. the maxfactor blush looks amazing, may have to get that!

  4. It is rather good!!
    The colour is gorgeous, its not often you get cream blush in drugstore brands.

  5. Yeh, but I prefer Blushcremes - Cremeblends feel a little drier to me? & I think the colour of Ladyblush has changed slightly in the new formula!

  6. Ohhh nooo really?
    I haven't had a chance to try them out yet. Disappointing, maybe it's just yours? They're supposed to be a better formula, that was the whole point lol. Deaary me. I'm glad i got Ladyblush in the old formula then.

    Let me know if you have any luck with other colours.
