sleek blush by 3 palette in lace | revlon photoready cream blush in coral reef | stila convertible colour in gladiola | dainty doll powder blusher in you are my sunshine | NYX rouge cream blush in tickled | urban decay afterglow glide on cheek tint in bang
so i may have mentioned once or twice before that i'm OBSESSED with blush, especially orange and coral shades, so i thought i'd put together a post about some of my favourites. i'm just going to jump straight in with number one, the stila convertible colour. after hearing essie rave about it i knew i'd have to buy gladiola first, though i'm really tempted by most of the shades and i know i'll be getting petunia next. it may look bright in the pan but it blends really easily and is just the prettiest shade on the cheeks. even if gladiola doesn't tickle your fancy i'd definitely recommend looking at the rest of the colours because it's a fantastic product.
my love for this sleek palette was well documented in my earlier post on the brand and my feelings haven't changed. they're great products, very affordable and super pigmented and i'd definitely recommend them, especially this palette because you get three colours for around the price of two of their individual blushes. i've also mentioned the revlon photoready cream blushes before when talking about the shade flushed, i wrote in that post that i had my eye on coral reef so obviously i've picked it up since then. these are great blushes, really smooth and in two really wearable colours.
lets just be honest, the urban decay offering looks downright terrifying but you'll be plesantly surprised to hear that it gives a really sheer wash of colour and it's so creamy and easy to blend it would actually be pretty hard to turn yourself into a clown with it (always a plus). it's one of my favourites of the bunch and i think they're discontinued so you can pick it up pretty cheaply online and i wear it all the time. dainty doll formulate all their products with pale girls in mind so this blush is perfect for me, it's a really pretty orangey coral with a gold shimmer running through.
now the NYX cream blushes are absolutely something i'd recommend, i love the formula (i have four of them) they're decently pigmented and really easy to blend. tickled is a pretty peachy coral shade but they have a huge range of really wearable colours and, like cream blushes in general, they give a lovely dewey finish. not to mention they're really affordable! i've found cherry culture to be the cheapest place to get them online if they're not available in your country. their shipping isn't super cheap as its calculated by weight but it's worth it, especially when they send out a 20% off code or that time they had a 40% off NYX sale(!) which is when i bought most of my products.
