Inside my Stash: Blusher

I promised you some more delving inside my own stash of beauty bits, and so far we've checked out my fondness for Dior palettes, taken a gander at the couple of lipsticks I have and last week's turn was that of foundation.

On to one of my favourite products, so: blusher. Oh, how I love this stuff. A proper transformative beauty product, blush genuinely makes a difference to a face of makeup and I really adore it. I tend to mostly go for shades of peach, coral and pale right up to hot pink, and while I'd say I probably favour powder products over cream-based ones, oh hell, who am I kidding? I likes 'em all.

Check after the cut for the low-down on some of the blushers in my stash.


Lets kick off with my coral/peach/nude-toned offerings, shall we?

  1. Tarte Natural Cheek Stain in Tipsy - a US brand, I got this in New York and it's an odd one - a push-up stick of light coral colour, it's a bit of a pain to use so doesn't get much love
  2. Revlon Matte Powder Blush in Blushing Berry - a really good pick for a totally non-sparkly, day blush.
  3. Julie Hewitt Cheekie in Peachie - you've already read about my fondness for this one
  4. Mac Just a Pinch Gel Blush - this was a limited edition from last year's A Rose Romance collection
  5. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink - Lynnie's quite the fan of this, so check out her thoughts
  6. Benefit Sugarbomb - their newest powder blush, this is nice but didn't quite knock my socks off
  7. Clinique Quick Blush - a very cute little product that's brush and powder blush combined, so good for your handbag
  8. Benefit Coralisata - OH HOW I LOVE THIS

Next up: pinks!

  1. Mac Mineralized Baked Blush in Daft Pink - again, another limited-edition product from one of last year's collections
  2. Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Flush - a very underrated brand, the Daniel Sandler line has some really lovely artistry products, including this very fluid pink blusher
  3. Smashbox O-Glow microcirculating cheek colour - er, I didn't even know I had this until I went rooting. Whoops!
  4. Bobbi Brown Blush in Pale Pink. Ok yeah, I know - it's not exactly pale. But it is very pretty on!
  5. Stila Cherry Crush Lip and Cheek Stain - this is a cute little yoke you can use on lips and cheeks
  6. I LOVE THIS: it's YSL's Creme de Blush in Powdery Pink. Siliconey, blendable, posh and beautifully packaged, it's great.
  7. Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric in 1 - this is a newbie and we took a look at the range recently
  8. Mac Beauty Powder in Tippy - a lovely pink from the Hello Kitty collection
  9. Smashbox Blush Rush in Radiance. Smash by name, smash by nature, wha? Anyway, love this very, very bright pink, and that is why I rescued it from the bin and am soldiering on with it despite shatter-tasticness
