My Top 5 Blushers

1. Mac Springsheen - As you can see from the picture this is my all time favourite blusher, no matter how much I use other blushers I will always come back to this one. This was my first every Mac blusher, and I have now hit pan on my second one! It is a gorgeous pinky peach colour with very small shimmer. I think the pigmentation is great on this blusher and you don't have to worry if you are heavy handed as it won't make you look like a clown! It is perfect for a natural every day look and even though it is peachy I wear this all year round. If you are new to Mac I really recommend checking this blusher out it is a great one to start with :)

2. Benefit Coralista-  This is such a popular blusher and I have to say I am not surprised! The name really gives it away, this is such a gorgeous coral colour, which I find warms my face. I wore this near enough every day last summer ( the other days was Mac Springsheen :P ) I personally think a coral cheek looks so nice in summer, it compliments you if you have a tan and gives you a nice healthy glow. Also top marks to Benefit on this lovely leopard print box packaging,  I keep this one out of my draws because I find the packaging pretty ha ha!

3. Nars Deep Throat - This is another 'famous' blusher in the blogging world. This is a pinky peach colour with tiny sparkles in it and looks lovely on. The pigmentation of this blusher is amazing, it goes on smoothly and gives you a lovely healthy glow and even though it has shimmer in it, it does not make you look like a disco ball, major plus! This is my first and only Nars blusher but I have got my eye on a few more as they just seem amazing! My one gripe about this blusher  without sounding like a prude is the name, it is just so awkward telling people the name of this blusher especially your mum! haha

4. Sleek Rose Gold -  Now a little high street number for you. This is supposed to be a dupe for Nars Orgasm (why the names?!) now I don't own Nars Orgasm but I have seen reviews online and they do seem very similar but this is a lot cheaper! I would say this is more coral than peach with a lot of gold shimmer. I do love this blusher but you have to have time to blend it is as it is sooo pigmented you have to be light handed when applying, otherwise you can look a bit like a shimmery clown! The packaging is small compact and sleek and it is great for the price that you get a mirror inside.

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush No 6 Berry- This is the newest addition to my blush collection but I have been obsessed with it for the past couple of weeks. This is my first ever creamy blusher and I can't believe I have waited so long to try one. This blush just glides on and blends in so easily I use my Real Techniques stipping blush to apply it but it is so creamy I'm sure you can apply it with your fingers. It it really pigmented and feels so creamy on your cheeks it gives me a lovely slight flush look but still looking very natural. The annoying thing about these blushers is no where on them they say their name just a number :/ I had to check my receipt to find the name! I will definitely look into buying more of these they are such a great quality high street blush, and as Superdrug always has offers on you could probably get a good deal on them. I bought mine for £4.19 recently when they are normally £6.49.

I have noticed after these swatches that my favourite blushers seem to be all of similar shades haha! Theses swatches don't do the most justice so I recommend checking them out for yourself. Are any of these your favourite blusher if not what is?
