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.
