My Favorite Blushes

My favorite blushes including NYX, elf, Covergirl, Clinique and Soap & Glory

We're just going to ignore the fact that you can totally see the shadow of me taking this photo...I didn't even see it at first, my boyfriend actually pointed it out to me, but this was the second time I set all this stuff up so I decided the perfectionist in me will just have to move on and deal with it! (Long explanation for something we're trying to ignore, but anyyyywayyy...)

There are tons and tons of blushes that I've never tried, but out of the ones I own, these five are my favorites.

From the top!

Clinique 108 Cupid- My mom bought herself this blush probably a year or two ago and whenever I would go see her, I would go in her makeup bag and use it. Clearly she knew I really loved it, so for Christmas last year she bought me my own :) It's a mid-tone pink with mauve undertones and very subtle shimmer and it also looks like the color I would naturally blush. It's very pigmented so the tiniest bit will be plenty, but the really fine shimmer in it makes it so pretty on the skin.

Covergirl 120 Soft Sable- You guys know this is my all time favorite blush. It's a difficult color to describe but basically it's almost a terra cotta color, so slightly orangey, slightly bronzey but I find that it looks great with most lip colors, is surprisingly natural looking and quickly perks up my face. The formula is really great because it's a really creamy powder blush and is super pigmented.

elf Contouring Blush- I obviously enjoyed the bronzer, but recently started getting back into the blush in this duo. It's a perfect peachy pink with a hint of shimmer so it looks very pretty on the skin and has a nice sheen. Plus the duo is only going to set you back 3 bucks, so I really can't complain.

Soap & Glory Glow All Out- This isn't technically a blush, but I love to use it as that, particularly on days when I'm going for a "no makeup makeup" look. It's a really light peach and it also has a creamy formula and a pretty glow when you apply it that I really enjoy.

NYX Cream Blush 02 Natural- It's always great to have a cream blush in the mix and I think NYX has a great formula. It's blends onto my skin super easily and the color itself makes me feel very pretty and proper and kind of doll-like :)

Have you guys tried any of these? What are your favorites you think I should try?

    1. You should! It would probably look really amazing on your skin tone!

  4. I love that Covergirl blush as well! It's such a good price too X


    1. Really?? That's so cool! Yes I agree and it'll last forever because of the pigmentation!

  6. NYX Natural is one of my favorite blushes as well. I recently picked up the shade Glow and like that one a lot too.


    1. I remember when I was picking this shade out and I was going between Natural and Glow- both so pretty!
