Today I thought I'd share with you my current 5 favourite blushes. I'm gonna start by being honest here and saying I don't have that many blushes (less than 10 I'm sure) as I tend to only buy colours that are pretty different from eachother!
From L-R: Nars Deep Throat, Nars Sin, MAC Coygirl, Laura Mercier Lush Nectarine, MAC Light Year Msf
Nars Deep Throat - Dodgy name aside, I would probably say this is my all time favourite blush. It's a beautiful warm, light shade of pinky peach with a light shimmer running through that brightens up your face without looking overly shimmery. Although Orgasm is the cult Nars product, I actually much prefer this one, and would definitely repurchase it again and again!
Nars Sin - This is a blush that looks so scary in the pan but once it's applied it is the most perfect plummy colour that looks particularly amazing in the winter. Like Deep Throat, this does have a slight shimmer running through it, but nothing that looks too glitterball on the cheeks. As with all Nars blushes this is super pigmented so if you're fair like me, I'd recommend a light hand.
MAC Coygirl - I have spoken about this before in my MAC favourites so I won't say too much other than this is a lovely matte plummy pink colour and it gives you that perfect flushed look without being overdone. It's such an underrated blush because it is definitely my favourite MAC one I've tried (and I've tried quite a few!)
Laura Mercier Lush Nectarine - I have a confession to make, peachy shades don't often suit me at all. However, thankfully this one has a lot of pink undertones I can just about pull it off. I think this is a shade that would suit a lot of skintones and I would definitely look into more Laura Mercier blushes as they have some lovely shades on offer and this is really pigmented.
MAC Light Year MSF (Limited Edition) - Sorry to be annoying and include a limited edition product but I really do love this msf for a simple sculpting look for the cheeks, especially when I'm wearing an eyeshadow look or a bright lip. It is quite shimmery (being a msf) so I'd avoid highlighter with this one but it is great for days where my skin is looking a little dull as it works great at perking the skin up. If you can find this anyone, I'd highly recommend.
Just as a note, I have to say of all the brands of blush I've tried Nars are definitely my favourite formulations as they are all so pigmented, easy to apply and last longer on me than any other brand :)
Have you tried any of these blushers? What are your favourites?
