current obsession: rosy cheeks

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.

  • 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.
