Confessions of a Blushaholic | Favourite Blushes

Oh well, since it's time for my 100th post now (happy times!) I decided to write about something I'm absolutely in love with at the moment, it's kind of becoming a little obsession of mine actually. Yes, as you can tell from the post title, it's blushes. I have a few I use regularly, well, much more often than other ones I have,  but I caught myself wanting more and more every time I get a new one (?!). This post is about blushes I have been in love with for a while now (well, except Hervana because I only just got it a couple of weeks ago but it's just so gorgeous) and a few I'd love to get my hands on. Right, here we go...
1. theBalm Frat Boy (£16 via feelunique.com) - I think this is my favourite out of all, it's just the perfect colour - a combination of pink, peach, apricot and coral. It's long-lasting, easy to apply and blendable. A little goes a long way with this product. Love it, love it, love it.
2. Benefit Hervana (£23.50) - this one is my latest addition to the little blush collection that's going on in my vanity drawer, it's a lovely light pink shade that gives my face a natural, pretty finish (but more on that one coming soon as I've not reviewed it just yet).
3. Stila Lillium (£16) - this one is actually the only cream blush that I like, nothing else really appeals to me for some reason (but I do want to try more because I'm probably missing out on some good ones). It looks a bit dark in the pan but goes on pink, I remember I wanted to get it straight away after swatching it. It's nicely pigmented, stays on for ages and it's surprisingly easy to apply. It's a winner basically.
4. Bourjois 95 Jasper Rose (£7.99) - it's a brilliant peachy-pink shimmery shade but the shimmer is not overpowering, it's got just the right amount of it. It's one of the first blushes I really liked, and it also made me fall for the brand once again (their eyeshadow pots put me off a little). This is another long-lasting blush, applies easily and is buildable.
5. NYX Mocha (£6) - it's shade-wise quite similar to Frat Boy, but its texture is more smooth (in fact NYX blushes have the smoothest texture out of all blushes I tried). It's really pigmented though, so it's really easy to overdo it, literally a touch is enough (at least it is for my pale skin). All 3 NYX blushes I own are amazing but this shade just attracts me that tiny bit more.
Have you tried any of those blushes? What are your go-to blushes?

  1. Oh they all look lovely! I remember having the Bourjois one when I was younger but haven't repurchased it, not sure why. Think I must go and get another one :)

  4. I love blushers as well! You can never have too many.

    Bourjois blushers are really great considering their price. And they smile nice too!

    I've yet to try the Benefit Hervana, Stila blushers and Frat Boy blush. I can't wait to though as everyone says great things about them both.

    1. Yeah I tried a couple of blushes from MUA but I'm not convinced, they are nice but just not as nice as the other ones I have. They are a bargain though :) x
