Spring Blush!

I present to you, my pick of blushers for Spring and Summer...


These shades are all bright, some are matte, some have a sheen to them and we have one cream blush! They vary in price and the cater to different skin tones, so hopefully, there is something here for everyone.


Sleek Blush By 3 Palette Lace (Crochet, Guipure, Chantilly), Estee Lauder Tease, Rimmel Live Pink, Nars Luster, Illamasqua Lover, Topshop Head Over Heels


Sleek Blush By 3 Palette - Lace

I love this palette so much, for three incredible blushers it costs a mere £9.99! It comes with two matte shades, an orange and a red and then one orange/coral shade with gold shimmer that reminds me of Nars Orgasm, but dare I say it, it is even better than Orgasm or Super Orgasm (in my humble opinion). What's best is that all three shades are very pigmented and true-to-pan in their colour pay-off this makes these, and most other Sleek blushers, fantastic for dark skin tones as they are vibrant, bright and will not make the skin look ashy. For paler girls, don't get too crazy with this blush, a quick dab of the brush is all you need!



Estee Lauder Illuminating Powder Gelée - Tease
Naughty I know seen as though this was a limited edition product however I had to add it as it is the most beautiful shimmery pink blush/highlighter which I will be using throughout Spring and Summer. If you can find it anywhere, I would urge you to get it! And if you already have it, then go put it on right now! Anyway, this blush is SHIMMERY, which I love and is a wonderful sweet, light pink. These gelées are so incredibly smooth and are a tribrid product (see more here) and blend like a dream, diffusing the colour and shimmer perfectly on those cheekbones! I would have to say, this is the angel of my blush collection, giving a bright halo effect to my face.




Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush - Live Pink
This again is another bargain buy for just £3.99. it is a bright pink with a little bit of a gold shimmer to it however contains no glitter particles, it is soft and blends beautifully. Even though the packaging isn't fantastic, the size is great to just throw in your purse to touch up during the day!



Nars - Luster
A love of mine, for when I have a tan or am in need of one. It is described as a "sheer golden apricot" and gives a wonderful glow to the skin, any pale skins, I would recommend you try this before purchasing however for those olive toned skins or skin with yellow undertones, this gives the warmest glow to the cheeks!



 Illamasqua Blush - Lover
Lover is a matte orange-apricot blush, it blends flawlessly into the skin and gives an orangey/coral glow to the cheeks. I love this when I want to go coral on my lips or have a bright yet not garish colour on my cheeks, this has to be one of my favourite blushers!



Topshop Cream Blush - Head Over Heels
Head Over Heels is a coral pink blush, it is a cream-to-powder blush and adds a very healthy subtle glow which can be built up for intensity. Even though I LOVE this colour, it isn't very long lasting but when I want a dewy finish it is a must have however if I want the colour to stay, I layer over a little of Illamasqua's Lover 



Which product will have you blushing this Spring/Summer?
