My Top 15 Blushes

I wanted to follow the” Top 8″ series I did for my lipsticks and lip glosses but then I thought that would do injustice to some of my blushes.

So here are my Top 15 Blushes. πŸ˜€


Pink Blushes

  • NYX Cream Blush Natural : It’s one of my favourite cream blush. Goes smoothly, stays all day long, gives dewy finish and doesn’t go patchy at any time of the day. This blush shade is good for medium to fair skin tones.
  • Estee Lauder Signature Blush in Tender Petal : It’s a very pale pink blush. No shimmer but pigmented enough to give that morning natural glow to your cheeks.Β  The texture is like silk. It is a buildable blush. good for fair skin tones.
  • NYX Powder Blush Mocha : It’s a super pigmented warm pink blush. It doesn’t have any shimmer . I mostly like to use it during the day when I can easily go overboard with my blush. πŸ˜‰ Wold work on most skintones.
  • Urban Decay Blush Quickie : Ki gifted me this blush and I can;t thank her enough for this. It’s the most awesome pink blush I have come across. I don’t review stuff I get as gifts but I’ll do a thank post for this and show you how it looks one me. Can’t love it enough. Medium to fair skin tones.
  • Colorbar BlushΒ  Peachy Rose : It’s not exactly a pink blush. It’s has hint of coral in it with golden shimmer. My all time favourite. Use it a lot. Again would look good on medium to fair skin tones.
  • MAC Beauty Powder Briar Rose : Everyone MUST have atleast one beauty powder from MAC. It gives a gorgeous sheen and glow to cheeks. Great for medium to dusky skintones.

Pink Blushes

Coral Blushes

I use coral blushes mostly in summer. So these are my summer blushes mainly.

  • Coral BlushesMakeup for Ever HD Blush # 6 Quickie : Excellent cream blush. Just a right mix of coral and pink. Non oily, non shimmery, easily blendable, pricey but goes on forever. Would look hood on medium to fair skintones.
  • MAC Hipness Blush : The only thing I wanted from the HUGE MAC To the Beach Collection. Not too orange, very wearable, has a subtle sheen to it, goes of smoothly and beautifully on cheeks. Would work for most skintones.
  • NARS Orgasm Blush : Gorgeous for evening. It’s a powder and shimmery shade of Makeup For Ever HD Blush. It’s more of my party blush.Its not very coral, it has a good amount of pink and gold in it. Universally flattering.
  • Clinique Quick Blush Peach-in-a-pinch : This stays in my on-the-go kit forever. I don’t even remember how useful it has been during my travels. I’ll pick up a pink version of this soon. Fair to medium skintones.

Coral Blushes

Earthy Blushes

I love using these shades both in summers and winters. i love them mainly for contouring and sometimes just as it is.

Earthy Blushes

  • MAC Darkly my Dear Blush : It’s a right mix of mauve + brown blush. Makes my face look slender . It’s matte and even a great shade for girls with dusky complexion. Excellent for medium to dusky skintones.
  • Clinique All Over Freshbloom Almond Blossom : Love the highlighter part of it more than the almond shade. It’s a gorgeous pick for Indian women. the golden is not OTT golden and th.e brown is not brown enough that would give a muddy look. The blush is not shimmery or matte, it’s rather softy shiny. Good for medium to for dusky skintones.
  • Colorbar Cinnabar Blush : Peachy brown blush with silver shimmer. Have worn it a lot once upon a time but now I find its shimmer a little too much. Nevertheless when I want a shimmery blush, I reach out for this the most.
  • Colorbar Just Earth Blush : It’s more or less a non shimmery version of Just Earth blush. Liking it a lot oflate. Goes on smoothly but is pretty capable of looking muddy. Nicely pigmented. πŸ™‚ good for dusky skin tones.
  • Chanel Bronze Universal : The perfect bronzer I have ever used. Never ever it turns orange. Just a perfect brown with a hint of gold. Can totally brighten up your face and looks gorgeous in summers, especially. Universally flattering but wold work better on medium skintones.

Earthy Blushes

Purple Blushes

I have only two purple blushes but I like this one a lot. This is MAC Blush Ombre in Grape Vintage. This was the first MAC blush I ever purchased. It has colours from pink to purple in the same pan. You can use pink on cheeks and contour with purple . or you can use purple with a gold highlighter. It’s very pigmented and you can easily go wrong with it. πŸ™‚ Good for medium to dusky skin tones.

                1. I think I am more trapped under the ” Chanel Tag” πŸ˜› but did you try their new ones…like the brush quality has improved..I am not sure of the texture because i have not used the prev ones. The one I have works just fine but it’s not the greatest. :(( :((

                  1. I don’t even want to try..I liked the YSL one..when I have money I buy that..then I want to try MAC..and EL..and and and..I don’t know…actually actualllllllllllllllllly…I might get the YSL one..but that’s it….I am willing to wait all my life to get a NARS blush 😐

  10. Well.. I have to say I have probably more than that in my collection :toothygrin:

    My favourites are Lakme Pure rouge in peach affair, MAC cream colour base in Crushed bougainville, MAC blush in x-rocks, Milani blush in Mai tai, ELF warm bronzer, Bobbi Brown pot rouge in Blushed rose, MAC MSF in Stereo rose, Tarte cheek stain in Flush and Covergirl cheekers in golden pink.

    These are the blushes I reach for the most.. :dance:

    1. Awesomee Charan.. :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: I havent tried any lakme blush , I must check them out. πŸ™‚

      Will check out the shade you mentioned. :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2: :jiggy2:

      1. I do like the Lakme Peach Affair.. it reminds me of NARS Orgasm but a deep color. It is also very pigmented. I think this color will suit the Indian skin tone as the NARS looks good on a very fair skin tone.

  11. nice collection Rati πŸ™‚
    i love NYX Cream Blush Natural ,Makeup for Ever HD Blush ,Colorbar Just Earth Blush .normally use these…

    also use 2 from Bourgeois!

  16. Ratiji… if these are TOP 15, it means you have more blushes (else the post wud have been titled something like My Blush Collection!!) and then you say I don’t have a huge makeup collection!!!

    1. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› …There are things i dont buy until i hit pan such as foundations, powders, eye pencils, mascara etc. I like cheek and lip products so I really like picking them up all the time. πŸ™‚

  17. Rati…Which one is ur mossssssssttt fav of the lot…name only one!!!!!! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  18. I have 4 blushes..and the silly factor is that aaaalllllllllllllll of them are peach hehehehe..everytime I go to buy a blush of different color..I somehow get moved by the peachy options and coming home I see..AGGGGAAAAIN SAME color :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  19. i have to attend a party and have nothing good to wear…… :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

    1. I just dont feel right grilling my gifts under pros and cons..I just like to do thank you posts for that. πŸ™‚ I mean gifts are given with lots of love na…so good or bad but they still remain the gifts.

      That’s just me and i don’t judge anyone who reviews their gifts. :))

  20. drooling over your blushes! my favourite is your grape vintage one. but rati, how is colorbar just earth blush a more or less non shimmery version of just earth blush?

  21. i reallyyy dont like you at all! bdw very honest q. how long will you take to finish all these if you wore 1 blush per day? very honestly/non-sarcastically. cause i was fighting with Rads over this yesterday!:P

  22. fiffffteeeen blushessss!! WOW!!! :O :O :O :O touch wood!! :)) :))
    i loe ur pinks and corals!! ^_^
    i just have two :”( :”( :”(
    one is lakme rose crush and the other is maybelline dream mousse ka soft plum out of which i like lakme more ( :hypnotized: :hypnotized: cant believe) πŸ˜›

      1. hehehe no n i like the shade..its the staying power which is the problem, dream mousee disappears like in half an hour … like it was a just a dream…. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

  23. loved d post…top 15 !! my my…last tym i went to get colorbar peachy rose n just earth..dey wer out of stock.. :((
    so got lakme desert rose trio…got 3 colors it very gud.. :yes:

  24. OMG thats lotsa blushes..loved it…for long I was figuring out how to post a comment and I was so confused finally figured it out…Rati I love your reviews…

  25. Although a lot of these blushes are pretty, I def wouldnt just go out and buy all of them, its important to know what type of undertones to your skin that you have, I am a cool undertone and look great any pinks,reds,plums,and wines some corals w/ pink undertones anything warm would just make me look flushed.
