Blushing Beauty

Blusher is great, isn’t it? It illuminates a drab complexion and makes it look healthy and rosy, can define bone structure or soften an angular face. Blusher makes me happy.

What makes me unhappy is that my favourite blushers are no longer available; these would be the Pout Flush Blush and MAC’s Beauty Powder Blush.

As you may or may not know, Pout went bust before Christmas. Luckily for me, not without a massive extravaganza of a sale in which I dutifully participated. They still have a few products left at, so grab your credit card and have one last spend (while you still can!).

As for MAC, I was sent the powder in ‘Sweetness’; a vibrant pink which looks surprisingly natural when worn. I was desperate to buy the peach shade ‘Joyous’, not just because it has my name in the title but peach shades suit blondes more than pink. I left it too long though and now it’s gone. The horror of it all!

So now I’m on the look out for a new blusher. I’m interested, what are your favourite brands for making your cheeks rouged?

  1. I used to have a little peachy-hued tube of goodness called ‘Cheekies’ from Benefit that rocked but I don’t think they make it anymore. Clarins do two flattering blushers – ‘apricot’ and ‘raspberry’ – to serve all your blush needs and they come in an easy to apply cream formula. I also like Nars – I’m currently working a shade so bright you might think it unwearable. Not so. It’s called ‘cactus flower’ and is a vibrant coral in the pot but a sheer tone with a shot of shimmer on the face. And shimmer in a good way, not scary sparkles like the Barbie make-up you had when you were 10.
