Famous Five | Blushers




I thought I would share with you all my Famous Five Blushers, I'm a HUGE fan of blushers, I don't quite know why I just seem to have quite a large collection of them....but I've managed to narrow it down to my absolute favourites, and let me tell you it was bloomin' difficult, I've again gone from Highstreet to High-end as there are SO many amazing blushers that you can get on the highstreet which are just as pigmented as highend ones. So without further a do here are my Famous Five Blushers.


Let's start off with a bit of Sleek, I love Sleek makeup as the prices are dirt cheap but the quality is amazing, pigmented, gorgeous shades yet super affordable and very much my go to highstreet makeup brand. My favourite blush from them is the Rose Gold Blush, raved by lots of people including myself, it's an amazing dupe for NARS Orgasm & is a fraction of the price. The quality is amazing, pigmented, colour payoff lasts pretty much all day, I love how the packaging is slightly like NARS', I may have purchased this one because of the name, but it's seriously beautiful, It's this beautiful pink toned gold shimmery blush & I just love it, look how beautiful it is. I do own other Sleek blushers but this one is timeless in my opinion. It doesn't break the bank and just comes under a fiver.



Bourjois 34 Rose d'OR blush is another one of my all time favourites, if Bourjois EVER get rid of this I will cry, it's just stunning, not only does it smell lovely (yep it really does ;) ) it gives a rose gold effect to your cheeks, as you can see it's pink but has this beautiful gold shimmer running through it, It also works as a bit of a highlight, when you apply it to the apples of your cheeks, honestly it's stunning and I just basically love this, again SUPER pigmented, I love the actual size of this as it's ideal to pop in your handbag, over all it's gorg. It costs a bit more than the Sleek Blushers but because of how gorgeous & pigmented it is, I love it.



Soap & Glorys Love At First Blush is another blusher that works as a bit of a highlight on the cheeks, it's very very pigmented, it is about £11 I believe which for a highstreet blusher is quite expensive but, honestly doesn't disappoint and is stunning, I love wearing this in the summer as it's SO pretty, & I do get quite a lot of compliments when I wear this particular one, I'm quite pale and it doesn't wash me out either, it's got three different tones of shimmery pinks aswell as a highlight, it's honestly gorgeous in the summer, I have the Peach Party blush too which I do really like to use.



Moving onto slightly more highend, MACs Well Dressed Blusher, is well loved by me. This was actually my first ever Mac blusher, many moons ago, it's so pretty and very pigmented, it's a milky pink shade but you can easily build up. very pretty and I just basically love it! I just haven't been able to part with it, honestly if you don't have this in your makeup bag then order one because you are missing out.



NARS Luster Blush, I bought this quite recently and I can't stop using it, it's this beautiful, peachy/apricot shade, with a dash of shimmer, it's very subtle and can easily be built up, this is the most expensive one out the lot but it's gorgeous and perfect for the spring/summer.




My favourite blushers brush to apply these beautiful shades with is the Real Techniques Blush Brush in 300 it's part of the bold metal collection and is honestly the best blush brush I've ever purchased, you can make the application quite precise with this brush. I've also done swatches as you can see above of what each one looks like and the colour payoff. For those of you who also like my cute makeup bag it's from a gorgeous company called Alphabet Bags who create SO many cute little bags, and other products ranging from compact mirrors, to canvas bag seriously check them out as they are SO cute!

And that is my Famous Five Blushers, I'm really enjoying typing this series of Famous Fives which I hope you are enjoying reading as much as I am typing them hahaha.
