Hello, everyone! My name is Pammy and I am a makeup and beauty blogger all the way from the Philippines. On this post, I would like to share my Top 5 Picks among the blushes in my stash. These are the ones I find myself reaching for the most and are a mixture of powder and crème blushes. Out of all the topics I could’ve written for this post, I chose blushes as they are my favourite. I have had quite a wide variety of blushes as they are just so pretty to look at, swatch, and I love how they can brighten one’s face. So without further ado, here are my current Top 5 Picks with a mini review and description.
I’ll start with powder blushes.
This baked blush by Chanel is a very dainty light pink shade. Although it looks light on the picture and on the swatch below, it gives a certain glow or luminosity on the cheeks. It is perfect to pair with smokey eyes or when you’re just going for a natural, barely there no-makeup look. It has a rose scent to it that may be a little overwhelming for some but it will only need a little getting used to. It feels velvety and blends will with the skin. The tiny brush it comes with has bristles made of natural hair which I find works best with baked blushes such as this one.
I have to admit that I love pink blushes. They impart such a nice pop of color on the cheeks that are quite subtle and feminine. This blush did not disappoint at all. Although I expected this to be a fresh pink shade on my cheeks, it turns to a nice warm pink instead as soon as it oxidizes. I find that Burberry Light Glow Blushes do oxidize on me as it is also the case with another one of their shades which is Blossom. Nevertheless, the blush is very lovely and the sleek gunmetal packaging feels totally luxurious too.
I am not a MAC fan although my collection started from mostly their products. I am not a makeup or brand snob but I discovered a couple of years ago that there is more to makeup than MAC so I deviated from the brand although there are a couple of staples in my stash from their makeup line. I am not fond of their blushes but this one is an exception. It is such a pretty pink with a hint of peach shade with fine gold shimmers and veining that makes it look even more gorgeous. With this blush, I no longer need a highlighter as the shimmers in it already give the highlight I needed. Staying power is also good.
Now on to the remaining two which are crème blushes.
This is a vibrant watermelon pink shade with a hint of coral. Its texture is very different from other crème blushes I have tried as it is more on the velvety side with powder finish. It isn’t even something I would categorize as mousse. It is like somewhere between powder and mousse. It lasts longer than most powder blushes do. It will look good with subtle eye and lip colours but enough to give a nice pop of colour on the cheeks that will instantly brighten the face.
This is another bright watermelon pink shade with a hint of red. It has very fine shimmers that are almost undetectable once on the skin. It is not as dry and a tad creamier than Le Blush Crème de Chanel and it reminds me of Play Doh, only a softer. The effect on the face is the same as Affinite being both in the bright pink shade family.
I hope you liked my post and found it helpful should you wish to try something that’s on my list.
