what i’m loving right now: modelco blush lights cheek powder in cosmopolitan pink
why i’m loving it: for years, i’ve used bronzer as my face waker-upper. but lately pink blush has become my go-to and now i’m wondering how i’ve lived so long without it. it’s not that i don’t like bronzer anymore…i do. but every now and then, don’t you need to change up your routine? it gives such a soft, pretty just-got-back-from-sledding-in-the-snow look. just a few sweeps on the apples of the cheeks and i’m instantly perked. i know this is sounding a bit on the commercial-y side, but it’s the little things that get me excited! and when you find a product that you absolutely love using, don’t you feel like telling everyone? i know i do.
here are some other blushes that have received some amazing reviews on beauty blogs around the web and trusted websites like make makeupalley.com:
- nars blush in orgasm, $26: this cult favorite gives a naturally flushed look. it’s personally revered by beauty guru/blogger tiffany d. as one of the best blushes around.
- cover girl classic color blush in soft mink, $5: a more affordable option to the aforementioned blush. natural-looking and has great staying power. check out the rave reviews here.
- nyx powder blush in pinky, $6: it looks like a bright, hot pink but it comes off very wearable (if applied with a light hand). this one is often compared to higher end blushes. it gets high praise from these reviewers.
- benefit blush in coralista, $28: i looove benefit products! whoever does the marketing/packaging for benefit needs a raise. the box that this comes in is too cute and the blush lasts for ages (making the high price worth it). coralista has a peachy coral color that gives you a healthy, warm look.
