♥Favourites - My Top 10 Blushes ♥

As some of you may know I am a product junkie and love to try new products out, even though I love to get new products, I also love my trusted products I have had for a while and always go back to them! It takes a lot for a new product to completely replace a trusted one and make it into my mental favourites list! Today I am going to give you my mental list of favourite blushes and let you see which ones I really trust and rely on! I always were blush as I think it brightens your complexion up and brings a look together. Here is a brief description of my top ten blushes! (Click on the prices to take you to the website to buy them!)

Benefit - Coralista

I am a big fan of Benefit cheek products, both there box of powders and there cheek and lip tints. I have had Coralista for about two years now, so I should probably get rid of it but I can't bare my self to do that! As you can see in the photo I still have quite a bit let and I have had it for two years and use it on a regular basis. Coralista is as it sames in the name a coral colour! It lasts well throughout the day and suits most skin tones - I have really pale skin and it's a good colour on me. I also love the fun packaging! You can get this at any Benefit counter or online for £23.50.

Benefit - Dandelion

This is my second boxed blush with my top ten blushes, and I think it just proves that I really do love these blushes! Dandelion is a light pink that just adds a nice colour to your cheeks and makes them look more alive and gives them a bit of dimension. This blush is easy to wear, good pigmentation and I simply love it! You can get this at any Benefit counter or online for £23.50.

MAC - Pinch O'Peaches

I got this blush after about 6 months + of wanting it, I first tried this blush back in August 2011 when I got my first MAC foundation and when the girl at the MAC counter tested the foundation on the side of my face she covered a some of my blush and she thought Pinch O'Peaches was the best match to what I was wearing before (which was Benefit Coralista). Anyway long story short I loved that blush and put it on my beauty wish list. (Let me know if you would like me to do post about my beauty wish list!) I love this blush so much from the pigmentation to the finish. You can get this at a Mac store or counter or online for £17.50.

MAC - LadyBlush

I got lady blush a few months ago and I love the formulation of there creme blend blush, this is the first one I own and it has defiantly encourage me to get more colours, (like I need encouragement!) The colour isn't like any think I already have and I was unsure how to describe the colour so I went to the website and they describe it as a "warm natural coral". Overall this blush is well pigmented, has a natural colour and blends well. You can get this at a Mac store or counter or online for £17.50.

Benefit - Posie Tint

First I have to say that I don't have the full size of this - I only have a few sample sizes of this! This is my all time favourite cheek stain, it has a really natural pink colour and I love that it gives a nice sheen your cheeks. I do like to set it with a powder blush recently I have been using MAC Pinch O'Peaches over the top. A tip I would give is work fast and eventually you will learn how the product works best for you! You can get this at a Benefit counter or online for £24.50.

Benefit - Cha Cha Tint and Elf - Candid Coral

I have only recently got Cha Cha Tint (sample again) and I really like the colour and as I said before I like to set liquid cheek stains with powder blush and I think Elf's Candid Coral goes perfect together! I haven't really worn this because I think it is more for spring and summer and were in autumn. You can get Cha Cha Tint from a Benefit counter or online for £24.50. And you can get Candid Coral online for £3.75.

Elf - Tickled Pink

The main reason I got this blush was because I heard lots of American beauty bloggers/vloggers talking about this and I thought it looked like a nice blush. I love the packaging it is very "nars" like. For the price you get a good quality product, that's a nice colour and has reasonable pay off. You can get this online for £3.75.

Maybelline - Dream Touch Blush - 02 Peach

This was the first cream blush that I ever tried and one of my favourites, it has a very creamy formulation and is really pigmented - the colouring is amazing! It lasts well thought out the day and the packaging is cute and elegant with the coloured top that matches the product and the glass bottom. You can get this at boots or superdrug for £6.49.

17 - First Date

I love the 17 blushes but something that really annoys me is that they change the names to the blushes all the time! First of all their blushes I love Bramble Forest and went through about four of them, then they either discontinued them or they change the names. So I picked the nearest colouring but this one is a bit deeper in colour. Anyway I love everything about it, you can get it at any boots for £3.49.

Natural Collection - Peach Melba

Natural Collection is a brand within boots that has reasonable prices, there's colours are good and for a few pound. The packaging isn't very good in fact the pan of product falls out! But with that aside it is a great blush if you have a budget. You can get this at any boots store for £1.99.

I am always on a look out for new colours, formulations and textures, if you have any blushes you could recommend then please leave a comment below to tell me! Do you use any of the blushes I love? If so, then leave a comment below and let me know what your opinion is of them!
