My Blush Collection

Hey guys!

Today I have my blush collection to share.  I really wish I had a good filming area for this, but there's not a room with enough light for that so I'm going to show you each blush I have with pictures.  You may want to go ahead and grab a drink before you read any further.



First up I have my ELF blushes.
From top to bottom: Candid Coral, Twinkle Pink, Glow, Blushing

As you can see in the picture, the top two blushes are from the ELF Studio Blush line and retail for $3 each.  These two blushes are less powdery than the bottom two; however, they are both very powdery. The bottom two are from the ELF Essential line and retail for $2 each.  

From top to bottom: Pink Blush, Berry Plum, Toast, Peach Rose

All of these L.A. Colors blushes I purchased from Dollar Tree.  All of these are a bit powdery; however, they all show true to color on the cheek.  The Berry Plum will be a wonderful shade for the fall and winter.  If you want to purchase these I would suggest looking at Dollar Tree, K-Mart, or Dollar General stores.  

Wet 'n Wild Pearlescent Pink

There has been a lot of talk over this blush in the beauty world recently.  Many beauty gurus claim that this is a dupe for NARS Orgasm blush.  I do not own nor do I plan on owning NARS Orgasm blush so I cannot say for sure if this is a dupe or not.  However, I do love this blush.  It is highly pigmented and requires only one tap of the brush in the product to produce a beautiful result.  As for where to purchase, of course through the Wet n' Wild website.  K-Mart, some Wal-Marts, and most drugstores.  

Kat Von D Love Song

This is one highly pigmented blush and you have to be pretty careful when applying unless you wish to look like a clown.  However, this blush will last forever.  It is $25 from Sephora.  However, if you do not want to spend the money on this blush the previously mentioned ELF Blush in Blushing is very similar.   

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Orchid Rush 

This is one of the more unique colors in my collection.  It is a bit of a blue under toned pink shade and the texture of this blush is crazy.  I honestly haven't worn it very many times because I cannot seem to figure out how to properly apply the product to my cheeks so if you have any suggestions please let me know! 

NYX Peach

NYX Peach is a matte blush that is anything but peach.  It is very much a pink blush and it is one of my favorite blushes.  If you remember I hauled this blush from Ulta last June and it scared me for a long time.

Hard Candy Fox in a Box Spicy and Sweet

I picked this blush up from Wal-Mart back in the winter and the main thing I have to say about it is it is extremely powdery.  When you swirl your brush in the product it kicks up a ton of powder and I always have to remember to tap my brush off prior to application. 

Clinique New Clover

This was a gift from my sister several years ago and to be honest I usually forget that I have it.  I don't have a swatch for it because it just did not show up.  I haven't tried to use it in so long that I'm not really sure if it even shows up using a brush, so this one may be making its way to the trash soon.  

Milani Baked Blushes top; Corallina bottom: Dolce Pink

The top blush is Corallina which is very much a coral blush.  It is highly pigmented and I really have to be careful with it since the coral color does not suit my skin tone very well.   However, the bottom one Dolce Pink is my favorite of the two.  It has gold shimmer through it and just gives a wonderful glow to the cheeks.  If you want to see it in action you can watch my Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Blush in Beach Please

As for the most frightening blush in my entire collection this one is by Be a Bombshell Cosmetics and was given to me by one of my friends.  It is extremely pigmented and I can't say that I have used it many times.  When I first put it on I looked insane, luckily it was at night when I didn't have anywhere to be.  If you would like to purchase these highly pigmented blushes they can be found on the Be A Bombshell Cosmetics website for $16

NYC Cheek Glow Prospect Park Rose

I picked this blush up from Wal-Mart for $2.99 and I do have to say it is one of my favorites for a natural glow.  It has a little sheen to it and it is extremely powdery so be sure to tap your brush off before you apply it to the cheeks.  However, it is so affordable that I don't mind the powdery aspect of the product.  

NYC Color Wheel Blush in Spring Petals (Limited Edition)

This blush was picked up from K-Mart months ago.  As you can see it is a natural color with a slight sheen to the finish.  As with the NYC Cheek Glow blush, this one is also powdery.  This particular shade was a limited edition Spring shade the permanent shade Bronzed Pink might be similar.  These Color Wheel Mosaic products from NYC are affordable at $4.99 each and can be found in Bronzed Pink, Translucent Highlighter Glow, Pink Cheek Glow, and All Over Bronzed Glow.  

Physicians Formula Organics Wear in Pink Organics

I picked this blush up from Dollar Tree months and months ago.  I picked up three blushes from there; however, this was the only one that actually showed up.  I have no idea what the other two shades were because I have tossed them out since no color showed up.  Honestly I don't reach for this blush often since it barely has any color pay off.

Jordana Blush in Coral Sandy Beach

I picked up this blush from K-Mart for $2.49.  It is highly pigmented and not powdery in the least.  This is the first coral blush I have ever purchased and I didn't know how it would look on my skin.  The first week this was in my collection I couldn't put it down and I highly recommend these blushes.  Not to mention there are 29 colors in the collection on the Jordana Cosmetics website so there is a color for absolutely everyone! 

Estee Lauder blush and bronzer compact (from top to bottom): Peach, Pink, Bronzer

This is probably the oldest compact of blush in my collection.  It was given to me when my Step-Mom got a new one and I used this as my blush every day my senior year of high school.  The bronzer in the palette is a little on the orange side, and I haven't used it much.  All of the product in the palette aren't creamy like many of the newer products on the market; however, all the products can be built up to make a beautiful look.  To be completely honest I don't even know if Estee Lauder even makes this product anymore.  

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Peach Glow

I picked this Revlon Highlighting Palette when they were first released.  At first I thought that it would be similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks; however, once I swatched it at home I realized that it was pretty dark to be considered a highlighter so I use this on days where I just want that bronze glow.  These come in three permanent shades, Bronze Glow, Peach Glow, and Rose Glow, and can be found at Wal-Mart. 

Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow

I picked this blush up from Sephora right before Too Faced released the other two colors into Sephora stores.  Honestly I would have picked this color over the other two anyway because this one is a nice natural color that is great for every day.  This is a blush that will last a really long time because there is a ton of product in the package.  These blushes can be purchased from Sephora for $30. 

ELF HD Blush in Headliner and Rimmel Stay Blushed in Sunkissed Cherry 

The ELF HD Blush in Headliner can be found in K-Mart, Target, or on the ELF website for $3.  This blush is highly pigmented and only a tiny amount is needed to achieve color on the cheeks.  My main issue with this product is that it is difficult to control how much comes out of the pump; therefore, a lot of product goes to waste.  The Rimmel London Stay Blushed in Sunkissed Cherry can be found at K-Mart.  These aren't as pigmented as the ELF HD blushes; however, that is a good thing because the product can be built up to a natural look.  These are extremely easy to work with and I would love to have more of them in my collection for the summer months.  

That is all the blush in my collection!  I hope you guys enjoyed and if you would like to see more posts like this in the future be sure to let me know below!  Also look forward to more posts from me.  I will have a review of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit soon.

  1. I like to apply the Dream Bouncy blushes with my Sigma F80 kabuki brush. Any dense, synthetic brush should do. It blends nicely that way. :)
