Mac Pinch Me Blush

Mac Pinch Me Blush

Usually, when I go into Mac I have a specific list of things I want to try/buy. I once found myself in an empty Mac with no particular idea of what I wanted. I took my time swatching and perusing everything, looking at products I didn't already know the names of, till I landed my eyes on this! As far as blushes go, after a lot of experimentation, "my" colour is definitely earthy and muted. Mac Pinch Me is a lovely earthy mix of brown and red. It's a 'Sheertone' blush, sheer pigmentation…Read more
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Glisten

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Glisten

Hi guys! I've been rubbish at publishing my posts every other day this month. I'm going to try to do better! But so far 2015 has been great! :) I'm also going to pop into Sephora this weekend, I feel bad for my bank account already... but it's gotta happen! I hear there's Givenchy, MUFE, Boscia, Estee Lauder, Benefit, Peter Thomas Roth, Nuxe and possibly Guerlain as well. I also got a dream last night where I was shopping in there for hours and magically they gave me my entire order for free because I…Read more
Mac Proenza Schouler Ocean City Blush Ombre

Mac Proenza Schouler Ocean City Blush Ombre

I realize it's not really helpful to review a limited edition blush that isn't available anymore but maybe we can just appreciate the beautiful ombre instead. :) I generally don't go for any of the Mac Limited Edition products. This was actually my first one and a few months later I bought a lip gloss from The Simpsons collection. I'm gonna take a break from Mac now. I remember Mac came about with a similar ombre blush which I didn't get and then Estee Lauder had one, which again I decided not to buy.…Read more
Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush

The weekend is finally here! Hope you all had a good week! Today, I'm reviewing a much loved but sparingly used blush. Mac Frankly Scarlet is probably the scariest blush you'll encounter.  Another blush in this category is Nars Exhibit A but Frankly Scarlet with it's pinky red tone is very unique! You've probably noticed how bright it is. Mac Frankly Scarlet is a powder blush with a matte finish. It's also very pigmented and needs to be used with care to avoid clown cheeks. What I really like is the colour which is very…Read more
Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Spirit

Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Spirit

Hi guys! It's a late night as I write this, so this review might be a bit sloppy. Sleek is a great budget brand and they make really good blushes. I've previously reviewed another Bush by 3 in Lace, here's another variant called Pink Spirit. Pink Spirit as the name might suggest contains 3 shades ranging from plum to blinding hot pink. Overall, they are evenly pigmented and the quality is even across the board. Here are the three shades : Pink Parfait : The darkest shade among the three,, it's a plummy…Read more
Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet

Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet

Jouer is a relatively unknown brand but it  came into prominence on You Tube last year. A lot of their products have been raved about and I picked up the Mineral Powder Blush to try. Jouer Mineral Powder Blush in Peach Bouquet is a really pretty peachy pink. It's a powder blush with very very minute gold microshimmer that doesn't really translate well on the cheeks. You can only notice it in the pan or up close. The colour is unlike anything I have and it has a very strong coral pink tone.…Read more
Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars Blush in Deep Throat

Nars blushes are a weakness for me! I got this particular one in a giftset and it's a very flattering shade. Nars Deep Throat is light peachy pink powder blush with gold shimmer. Deep Throat and Orgasm come from the same "peachy pink with gold" family but Deep Throat is a lot lighter. It's more pink whereas Orgasm is more peachy. This also has less sheen and shimmer than Orgasm. If you ever found Orgasm to be a bit too shimmery, you might prefer this one. The warm pink tone with gold shimmer…Read more
Just Swatches : Mac Powder Blushes

Just Swatches : Mac Powder Blushes

This might seem as too many or too few to some, but here are my Mac blushes! I've had some of these for ages and one is fairly new! Also for reference, my skintone is NC40.   01. Peaches { Sheertone } - I bought this because I felt I was missing out on it (blush wise), and I was right! It's sheer, super blendable and just a great colour to wear all year round. It's a very pretty light peach. 02. Sunbasque { Sheertone Shimmer } - This was the first Mac blush…Read more
Nars Blush in Taj Mahal

Nars Blush in Taj Mahal

You know I have a soft spot for Nars blushes, but this one is actually my least used blush. I bought this when, like everyone else, I was having an orange phase. This seemed like the perfect blush for it. Nars Blush in Taj Mahal is a powder blush in orange with gold shimmer. When you blend it, you can really spot a nice gold sheen across it. It's more of a yellowy-orange than a reddish one. I do really like the colour, it can seem too much for a neutral everyday look…Read more
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Exposed

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Exposed

When it comes to blushes, I'm instantly attracted to the bright ones, the louder the better! But with time I've also found this certain browny plummy pink colour to suit me very well. I think Nars Douceur is one such blush but it has a bit of shimmer in it. I love the Tarte formula for blushes and picked up the very well received shade Exposed. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush are sheer blushes for the most part and very soft and buildable. The colours are either Matte or with shimmer. Exposed is…Read more
