Top 5 Pink Blushers


Why 5? Because a girl just cannot have enough pink blush you see.

These are my favourite picks from my collection till date that are gorgeous in texture, application, finish and colour. As you can tell, I have a variety of undertones and hues of pink going on here but 'variety is the spice of life' as they (I always wonder who!) very rightly say and if you have such shades in your vanity that cover almost every spectrum of the pink colour family, you need not any more.

Must-have shades of pink:

- Dusky mauve, grown-up pink with brown undertones
- A delicate and foolproof, slap-on-whenever, true baby pink with beige undertones
- A bright but light, Kim Kardashian barbie pink for those high cheekbones and a 'glow from within'
- A trendy fuchsia pink with cool undertones for night outs and when you're feeling brave
- A reddish pink with warm undertones. This one's the only cream blush I have shockingly!









I love all of them equally but a special mention goes out to the Mii Uplifting Cheek Colour in Bloom. It literally melts into the skin and only disperses pure pigment with no trace of texture on the surface of the skin. The shade is of course a gorgeous winter tan colour and I just cannot get enough of it these days.

Tell me what your top pink blushes are so I have a reason to hoard more.

These all look gorgeous! I'm clueless about blusher as I don't use it, but I love the look of Topshop's 'Pinched' x
Sirens and Bells

@Katy - If you don't use Blusher, Illamasqua's Naked Rose would be a great one to start out with :)

Michelle said...

I love the look of Mii Uplifting Cheek Colour Bloom and Illamasqua Naked Rose - they seem like easy colours to wear. :) Sleek Santorini on the other hand looks a bit scary in the pan and swatch! xx

Sooo much love for Illamasqua's blush.

Topshop Blushes are great aren't they! Have you tried Butterscotch by them, it's a really great highlight shade!

@Cynthia - Thanks for the heads up doll. I need Benefit Dandelion and NYX Pinky in my life now :)

p.s. There's a LOT more in Topshop make-up section you'd want to pick up!

@Midnight Violets - I have indeed and it didn't flatter my tanned olive skin tone so well. Plus I was trying to use it as a blusher :(

@Michelle - I think I need to do a FOTD with Sleek Santorini or perhaps most of Sleek's louder blushers! It is gorgeous and wearable really.

loving the look of the mii blush! So tempted to get this but I'm trying not to feed my blush addiction, cue internal conflict :/

I've been searching for the perfect pink blush now, and after purchasing and returning Illamasquas Naked Rose i think im going to have to give it another shot, it's such a perfect subtle pink =) Defo going to be hitting up selfridges to repurchase, also Senna's cupcake is looking so appealing to me, the swatch shows a lovely subtle glow and well i think i'll be swatching that and who knows, i may be swayed towards purchasing.

I loved reading your blog and well hey im know your newest member =)

@Salwa-x - Senna's Cupcake is universally flattering and is a pink with a twist. The only problem with it is it's non availability in the UK. Needs ordering from their US website :(

Ahh thats a bummer =/ I have topshops pinched laying around, i find its too vibrant for my skin tone, especially as i have redness, it somewhat makes my skin looked rashed, oh well Naked Rose it is =)
