Until very recently I was a pink blusher kind of gal. The majority of my, albeit limited, collection are pale pinks. As someone who blushes at the drop of a hat, I tend to avoid dark colours, to avoid looking like I am constantly embarrassed. I AM constantly embarrassed about one thing or another, but I don’t want to look like it if I can help it. Recently, though I have ventured into the realm of peach blushers. Peach is a universally flattering shade, it suits every skin tone, but I was always afraid of it for some unknown reason.
It all started with the new Maybelline Baby Lips Balm and Blush. I chose the shade Innocent Peach, because I decided I wanted to look like an innocent peach. Not really, but I thought it was the most different from all the other blushers that I own. I have waxed lyrical about this little ball of loveliness many times already (including on Instagram) but I can’t help it. I love it so much! The colour is so flattering, and I love the fact that it is creamy but not sticky. And they are only £4.99 here.
I recently bought a few Korean sheet masks on Ebay, and at the same time I chose a pretty Tony Moly blusher. The Petite Blusher Delight in Petite Coral is so pretty. It came with a little puff, and the packaging is very pleasing to me. Yes, I’m one of THOSE people who gets just as excited by the outside of the product as I do by what’s inside. Again, this peach pretty was very affordable; less than £4 in fact, and with free shipping (here)
As an avid watcher of YouTube beauty videos, I have heard the words ‘Milani’ and ‘Luminoso’ on several (hundred) occasions. It seems to be one of those much-loved products, that everyone owns. It is also one of those rare beasts that actually lives up to the hype. Luminoso Baked Blush by Milani, is a more orangey peach. That’s not a bad thing though; it’s a glorious golden orange that gives a flattering glow. The formula is soft and it blends perfectly. Get yours here.
Finally, the newest addition to my peach blusher collection; the Clinique Cheek Pop in Melon Pop. I have been lusting after Cheek Pops for a while. They are a little more on the expensive end of the spectrum, so it’s taken me a while to pluck up the courage. I’m glad I did though, Melon Pop is a gorgeously subtle peach that adds just enough colour to the cheeks. Of course, the fact that this blusher is shaped like a flower does not influence my opinion whatsoever. £17 – here
Now that we are coming in to spring (apparently…) I know I will be getting a lot of use out of these peach blushers. Peach is such a flattering colour, and it makes a very welcome change from the myriad of pink shades that seem to be the norm.
What do you think? Do you like peachy blushers, or do you stick to pinks or berry colours?
