Summer Must Have: Blushes!

Bright Blush

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope your weekend went well. 🙂

My ‘Summer Must Have’ series continues with a current obsession: blush!

Let’s dive right in.

Bobbi Brown Blush in Pretty Coral 31

Although I’m not sure why the word coral appears in the name of this blush-even the MUA was confused- this is such a nice pink color that goes perfectly over bronzer.  Looks very natural on the skin and can be used as an everyday/work blush.

Burberry  Beauty Light Glow Earthy Blush No. 07

A versatile product that can be used as a blush or contour shade.  This taupe shade has an incredible smooth and  buttery consistency and  although there is no shimmer, it has a subtle ‘glowy’ look and is one of the products I reach for when I want the ‘no blush’ blush look.

Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Water Resistant  Blush in Los Cabos

A generous sample that I received in my May Birchbox, this is what coral looks like to me. I can’t attest to the water resistant claim but I can say it is long-lasting and nicely pigmented. Blending is easy, I think this would look great on multiple skin tones and if this shade doesn’t scream summer, I don’t know what will.

YSL Creme de Blush No. 4 Audacious Orange 

Despite the bright orange color, once blended in, this leaves behind a nice flushed look. Only very little is needed because it’s highly pigmented, it’s easy to work with and holds up in the summer heat. You can’t beat that.

*Note: As I write this, I just noticed that this isn’t readily available anymore but if you can find, I highly recommend it.  A great and inexpensive alternative is the Colour Pop Super Shock Cheek blushes and my favorite shade is Trickery.  You can read my review here.

  1. I have been wanting a cargo blush !!! They look amazing 😊 my fave at the moment is macs new romance blush 🙂

    • Oh Cos, I did so much research before purchasing this one. It’s definitely a high end item but so worth it. If you’re ever at a counter where they sell this, check it out. I know you have selective reactive skin (my terminology for it, lol) and I wouldn’t want you to purchase if you can’t exchange it just in case it doesn’t work for you.
