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

A girl can never have too many blushers…

That’s probably the story of my life. I love a good blusher and, although I am a fan of high-end  blushers, I have to admit that some high street brands offer very decent blushers, as well.

I am personally a big fan of Max Factor cream blushers, they are brilliant!  I also want to try Revlon, plus Bourjois are bringing out cream blushers this year.

Speaking about affordable blushers, meet MeMeMe Cherub’s Blush Cheek & Lip Tint.

A cheap, it’s only £5.50, tint for lips and cheeks?! Yes, indeed!

It is a beautiful berry-ish red which works amazing for perking up the whole look, it instantly makes you look fresher and healthier,  know what I mean?

Just make sure that you prep the skin! Especially the cheek area, as

Some girls can never have too many lipsticks, some – too many eye shadows, some – nail polishes or perfumes and as for myself – I can never have too many blushes. I am a huge fan of blush, especially cream/gel/liquid so I am always happy to find a good one.

So today I want to tell you about my favourite blush  of the moment and definitely one of my favourite blushes among all that I’ve ever tried. Please meet the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain. It is a “water-based formula that gives cheeks a lasting and subtle lit-from-within glow”.

Not only the design is beautiful and chic but the product has the highest quality. The texture is amazing, very light and blendable. It gives a sheer and radiant colour but, as suggested, you can always add more to get a brighter shade. I love that it gives a very natural finish and makes you look healthy and beautiful. Aura Cheek Stain stays on for a long time without fading or disappearing from your cheeks.

The shade that I have is called Flush and it’s a sheer red which I absolutely love as it makes me look awake and I can get away with a light foundation or even some concealer, this blush, eye brow pencil, a bit of mascara and it completely changes the way I look!

There are two more

Benefit Benetint Review and Swatches

Today I want to tell you about a famous Benefit product which is called Benetint and which is a rose-tinted lip & cheek stain. I love  cream and liquid products so it’s not a surprise that I loved this one. I also like that you can use this one for lips and cheeks, yay for multipurpose!

I have a mini sized Benetint which I got in one of the famous Benefit sets.

So how does it work on your cheeks?

Use several drops on your cheeks and be sure that you blend them very fast until they drie. The good thing is that it doesn’t move at all and stays on for a very long time. It also gives you a very natural effect. This is a perfect product for winter because it gives you the natural blush as  if you just came from a lovely walk in a snowy park (Oh, I can’t wait for such walks)!

How does it work on the lips?

The effect that Benetint gives
