High End Blushes Worth The Splurge

When it comes to beauty products blush is my ultimate weakness. Growing up I was heavily involved in dance and that is where my makeup obsession started to grow. My mom always told me if I wanted to be seen on stage I needed more blush. The rest is history lol When it comes to blushes I love nude  and peach tones the best but I love a good plum or mauve tone blush for the fall. Whether its high end blushes or drugstore they make me weak in the knees. Its a step in my beauty routine that is a must! Here are a few that are in constant rotation in my beauty routine.

HIGH END BLUSHES WORTH THE SPLURGE

( Click the Blush to Shop!)

MAC Mineralize Blush – Shade Warm Soul: This blush has a cult following and I will admit this is newer to my collection. I have been using the shade Dainty from this MAC collection for years (wore it on my wedding day) so I knew the formula was absolute perfection but not sure why I waited this long for Warm Soul. This shade gives the perfect touch of flush to your cheeks. There is a slight sheen to it so your skin looks fab too!

Benefit Cosmetics – Shade Rockateur Rose Gold Blush: My best friend was apple picking with her family and sent me a picture. I only noticed the gorgeous flush of pink shimmer on her cheeks, texted her back asking what she was wearing and went out and bought this the next day! I love this blush in the cooler months bc its a more mauvey pink on my skin tone and pairs perfectly with Benefits Hoola Bronzer. They are a match made in heaven! There is a glow to this blush you do not need to pair it with a highlighter but you know I do anyway LOL

NARS Blush – Shade Orgasm: The name alone will make you blush hehehe….. This shade is known for being a universial shade for all skin tones and has won countless awards from Allures Best of Beauty. I myself was flipping through the magazine and saw it won and put it on my list to buy! A perfect pink flush of color on my skin and has specs of golden shimmer in it!

BECCA Mineral Blush – Shade Wild Honey: When it comes to powders there is nothing quite like Becca. Just like their highlighters the formula is so soft and blendable. This range has a total of 6 shades but this is another fab peachy nude tone!

Charlotte Tilbury Swish & Pop Blush – Shade First Love: I know I know another nude but I will be buying more shades because the formula of this blush is amazing. The concept of the two tones in the pan ” is a two-step application ritual featuring two creamy, color-rich shades filled with finely crushed pearls to give your skin a limitless glow”  This is my newest purchase of blush so I wanted to show you swatches.

Must Have High End Blushes

Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush – Shade 02:  The entire collection is gorgeous see swatches HERE, however shade 02 is a perfect matte nude and will pair perfectly with any bronzers you own. I actually first heard about this brand when I was watching MANNY MUA and I just loved how his cheeks looked. He was wearing Shade 02 with Hoola so the next time I went to Ulta I grabbed this and have been using it since.

MAC Extra Dimension Blush – Shade Faux Sure: This is one of MAC’s newer products and this formula is aaaaaamazing! Its incredibly soft, blends like a dream and has a glow to it that makes your cheeks look fantastic! With 12 shades to choose from you are bound to find something for you. This is one not to miss out on. This shade was intimidating at first but its darker in the pan and with a tan for me in the summer it gave me such a sun kissed glow with my MAC Bronzer in Refined Golden. 

MARC JACOBS Beauty Air Blush – Shade Flesh & Fantasy: Last but certainly not least, this two toned blush  allows you to create a customizable color and gives you all day radiance. There are 5 shades in this range. Marc Jacobs has another blush that I am looking to try very soon!

Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter by Marc Jacobs Beauty: Review & Swatches

Marc Jacobs Beauty is a brand I have recently tried. I kept hearing one good thing after another. With sleek classic black and white packaging, quality products and a range to choose from I keep going back for more.  I am such a sucker for sleek packaging (insert my MAC obsession here). When I recently received the Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter from Marc Beauty & Influenster for reviewing purposes I was beyond excited! With summer approaching this is a liquid highlighter you will want in your collection. I understand this is a bit on the pricier side however a little goes a long way which means its BPAMC approved for a beauty investment and it is also infused with coconut water that gives the skin a hydrated and youthful glow.

HOW TO USE:

  • Apply to skin directly
  • Mix in with your favorite matte foundation
  • Mix with your primer
  • Apply directly to high points of face with fingers or beauty sponge

I personally love mixing liquid highlighters with my matte /semi matte foundations for an extra glow or even with my moisturizer especially in the warmer months and this one truly creates magic. Don’t be intimidated by this swatch especially those who are not too into highlighting or may just be starting to look into highlighters. It looks intense however the glow is subtle and its the absolute perfect shade of gold.
