Spring is coming and a there are loads of fun cheek colors out to make sure we look bright and feel fresh faced! I am blush obsessed so I’ve had fun playing with all these fun face flushing products. There’s a range of formulations, application types, and pigment intensities so something is sure to strike your fancy.
Clinique’s new spring collection Cheek Pop blush is for the natural girl who is looking for a subtle pop of color. Don’t be scared by the bright coloring, they look more vibrant than it does applied. It’s a sheerer powder for easy control of color intensity. Also, we love the super cute lucite packaging with a daisy flower imprint that just screams spring! Yes please!!
The new Make Up Forever HD Second Skin Cream Blush is HUGE! Since the Makeup Forever HD Foundation is what dream skin is made of we were sooo excited for their HD Blushes to come out and they did not disappoint. The creamy formula melts into your skin and blends superbly! The best part is, it comes in 16 different shades to match any skin tone or mood! It leaves you with a pretty and natural flush of color.
Something new from NARS. Do I need to say more? They’ve come out with a new twist on their Multiple Stick! The original cult favorite Multiples (among which are Copacabana, Orgasm, and South Beach) are still fab, are shimmery and meant more for highlighting. The new Matte Multiple Stick is so pretty, vibrant, and it’s MATTE! It gives you potent pops of bright color when applied directly or a softer more stain-like application when applied wet to the cheek. While NARS suggests you can use these on your lips too (thus multiple, as in multiple places) we don’t love it on the lips. The size is large for lips and feels clumsy in applying to your kisser and it’s dry on your lips. Also for lips, why stray when the NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencils are genius!
Last but not least, the Josie Maran Argan Color Stick! These sticks provide sheer but flattering color while moisturizing and repairing your lovely skin with her signature argan oil!! They just go on really nicely, blend really well, have a nice dewey finish while having no shimmer, and feel good and healthy on your skin. Josie Maran products are also perfect for organic girls since they don’t contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, etc. These mini’s are a set (from sephora.com) so they’re not usually so small but I love having a few colors in a smaller size for more variance with less commitment.
