MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…

Red(ish) Blushers Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

So here is what I’ve picked:

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)

I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect.  Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)

This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it

Since today we are talking about the new blushes for Spring 2014, it’s a perfect time to review  the brand new Clarins Multi-Blush Cream Blushes.

These are available in four shades and I have two to show you -  02 Candy and 03 Grenadine (The other two shades are 01 Peach and 04 Rosewood).

They come in a signature Clarins packaging and look sleek and chic. Here is a close up of the shades.

The formula of these blushes, as promised, is light and  applies smoothly. As for the texture, it is not very creamy, definitely not oily or greasy, but I wouldn’t call  it cream-to-powder, I’d say they have a velvety finish, so girls with normal and oily skin should like them ( the blushes), too.

Multi-Blush are pretty fool-proof, as you get a very subtle hint of colour, so it’s hard to apply too much. Even if you

Favourite Plum Blush Combination for Winter

Regular readers know that I love my blushes… And I would like to show you my favourite blush combination that I have been wearing non-stop recently.  I adore my Amaryllis, but sometimes I just want something different.

Favourite Blush Combination Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Artdeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and LipsThis is when my berry/plummy/mauve blushes get some love. I am a fan of such shades for AW, as they look nice with my light skin and dark eyes and hair, they instantly brighten up the complexion and look nice with cool toned pinks and plums that I often wear on my lips.

I really like ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips in 17 Creamy Mauve (review), it is such a gorgeous shade but

Remember my post about ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips? 

I did pick up one shade – 17 Creamy Mauve. They all were pretty actually but the mauve one was right up my street.

It comes in a beautiful and chic black compact with the packaging which  matches the shade of the blush.

The product  has a  sheer and dewy finish, and is easy to blend into the skin, and you get a beautiful and natural effect.  It gives a subtle wash of colour which can be build up for a more intense effect.

I like this modern kind of texture, since I am not exactly the biggest fan of cream-to-powder blushers on my dry skin. However, this may not be the best formula for oily skin. You can

When a beauty product gets a cult status and make-up artist & beauty lovers rave about it – it’s a sign that one has to get that product, too.

You all know by now that I love my cream/liquid/stain/gel blushers ( is my latest wish list) and I don’t even remember when was the last time I’ve bought a powder blush. About two years ago, I think (It was Sleek, LE)?! But I just had to get Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush ($26 from Sephora)

It was very easy to choose a shade, as I knew straight away that I wanted Blushing Bride, which is described as plummy rose.

I love the fact that the packaging is the same shade, as the blush itself, very useful, especially when you have a lot of blushes from the same line.

And here is a close up of my beauty. As you can see it’s a pretty plummy shade with golden shimmer. Luckily, the shimmer is delicate and you don’t get it all over the face.
