Daily blushes

My post about MLBB was quite popular, so I thought I'd continue on with the whole 'neutral' makeup concept and discuss some blushes that I have on rotation for everyday wear!

There are blushes that are natural enough to get away with wearing everyday. Then there are those that should be reserved for more special occasions. Here are some of the blushes that I like to wear on normal, boring days...

NARS Luster (see full review here)
The perfect apricot blush for a gorgeous sunkissed glow! I adore this blush, it was love from day one. Well worth the money.

Sleek Rose Gold
This blush is similar to Luster, however it is more of a sunset colour and has more sheen to it. This is great for days when I feel dull and need a bit of extra glow to my face.

Arbonne Blossom
This one is like Rose Gold's peachy sister. It has a bit of shimmer to it and its great for when I want to have a natural, healthy look. Rather than the sleep deprived, zombie I've become lately.

MAC Feeling
This one is the only one without shimmer. I suppose it's like the odd one out and it's a bit more blue toned than the others which are warmer. A great everyday blush for winter.

What are some blushes that you like to wear on a daily basis? :)

  1. Lovely natural blush collection Sarah!
    All of these look gorgeous, but I think I like the look of Rose Gold best!

    I'm usually switching between Makeup Academy's Bittersweet cream blusher, and Etude's Grapefruit Jelly blusher.

    1. Thanks Tulip! I think Rose Gold would look great on your porcelain skin :)

      I've never actually tried any MUA blushes, but I bet they would be pretty good!

  2. I love Rose Gold. :)

    I also have several other blushes on regular rotation, including Illamasqua Hussy, MAC Lovejoy, and a stack of blushes from Inglot that I wear almost daily! The only annoying thing about them is the numbers are on the bottom of the pan, which is a bit hard to take out of the palette!

    1. Ahhh MAC Lovejoy looks so pretty...must...not...buy! I don't have that many blushes (about 8) but I feel like that's enough to last me 20 years :P

  8. Hi Sarah. Just wondering what your thoughts are on Nars blushes. Is it worth the price here in Australia?

    1. I wouldn't pay RRP for them when you can buy them online for around $30ish :) I think they are definitely worth the money though, really great pigmentation and a lovely range of colours. I think all makeup junkies should own at least one NARS blush :)
