Makeup and perfume are my two obsessions. I talk almost exclusively about perfumes in this blog but there is less of makeup talk. Perhaps, I should talk more about makeup. Last year when I moved continents, I gave away/sold almost 1/3rd of my makeup. Now I am left with a manageable stash. My makeup buying has reduced a lot. In the past 6 months, I have only bought about £50 worth makeup, mostly essentials. It makes me want to use the stuff I already have and love.
I've been meaning to do makeup inventory posts (inspired by Liz). Look forward to some photo heavy posts in future.
Here goes my blush collection. Be warned, you may see a lot of peachy shades!
|Ben Nye Cream Blush in Dusty Pink|
Becca Beach Tint in Grapefruit
Ben Nye Cream Blush is super pigmented like all other Ben Nye things. Just a dab on each cheek will do and being creamy it spreads well to give a powdery finish.
Becca Beach Tint is sheerer and ideal for a subtle, barely there flushed look.
|NARS Multiple in Angelika|
Angelika is a bright pink with gold bits in it. It is a great shade when used light handedly. I don't quite like the texture of this. It feels a bit waxy and I prefer creamy.
|Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol|
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks in Nectar and Pink
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are my favourite cheek products ever! Nectar is a great peachy/coral shade and love it. Pink is more of a highlight shade for my skin tone.
iNuovi and Natio are both almost the same shade of peach but iNuovi has more shimmer and Natio is more of a sheen. L'Oreal Rosewood shows up on my skintone and makes me look like I am wearing blush but in a good way.
|MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Springsheen|
Sleek blush in Rose Gold
I love this MAC blush, very natural looking on me and quite glowy. Sleek Rose Gold is my poor girl's substitute for NARS Orgasm. I like this and have no plans of buying Orgasm anytime soon.
|Clinique Quick Blush In-A-Rush-Blush|
L'Oreal Blush Minerals Soft Peach
Clinique Quick blush is actually great for handbag and it doesn't spill. The colour is again a peachy shade. I am not too fond of the L'Oreal one but I do use it because it is a safe shade.
|Sassy Mineral Blushes|
Love these blushes. They are have really fine shimmer and nicely pigmented. Celebrity is my most worn one.
|Benefit Thrrrob and Coralista|
|L.A. Minerals Flushed and Pink Du Jour|
These are my newest addition. I think they are okay. Flushed is a bit chalky but Pink Du Jour is soft and powdery. Both have nice pigment.
