Best of 2009: Blushes


Nothing makes you look pretty like a wash of color across your cheeks, and while blush may not be an everyday product for some women, very few underestimate its ability to charm. I have a couple of cheek-brightening secret weapons in my beauty arsenal, and I'm sure you do too. So tell me — which blush brand served you best this year?

currently using Nars Orgasm, but i really like bobbi brown's Rose blush. the earthy pink tones look much better on fair skin than orangey Orgasm.

Nars is the only blush that lasts all day for this oily face!

NARS in "Deep Throat." It's a slightly peachier and way less sparkly version of "Orgasm."

Bare Escentuals Glee is a pretty plummy shade that always brightens my face.

Another vote for Nars. I was really skeptical of it for a few years and used Dior and Tarte and various other drugstore brands, but nothing compares to Nars. You only need the slightest amount AND it stays on for a long time.

I love Lorac's crimson blush. It looks kind of aggressive in the pot, but it gives a really natural-looking flush. Blush is the one cosmetic I always wear. Just a light swirl on the apples of your cheeks can really wake up your face and make you look years younger.

Voted Nars, but also love Sleek blushes although they are only available in the UK right now =(

Last week, I picked up Fresh's new blushes (i think they are new) I got it in Petal which is the lightest pink shade and the darker more coral shade, but I can't remember the name. They are so pigmented and last so long I am in love. They've officially replaced my NARS Orgasm

Organic cosmetics are a scam. If you are alive, you are going to come into contact with dangerous additives, etc. You are breathing them in right now. ELF cosmetics are crap.

I second the notion of everyone checking out ELF! Considering everything is $1, you don't feel too bad if you're not crazy about a color or a product. Their blotting papers are excellent and dirt cheap! Their eyelash curler is also great - way better than the generic Cover Girl one I used to have. Also, before you buy anything there, make sure to look on google for a coupon code and you will almost always be able to find a 50% off coupon (aka 50 cent make up!) and/or a code for free shipping.

Having to cut my make-up budget I discovered ELF (EyesLipsFace)they are very affordable,and I ordered their minerals start up kit and absolutely Love it,now people who can afford the really expensive stuff may not like it,but it's someting to look into,if you want great make-up for way less the money.

I love Benefit blushes. I used to love Nars, but I find the blushes a little too much for daytime.

For no carmine, maybe Korres?

Does anyone know of a really good blush that doesn't use carmine or cochineal? I used to love Benetint and Bare Escentuals but ever since I found out where the color comes from I am too grossed out to touch them.

i love the nars laguna COLOUR, but HATE THE PACKAGING! it broke apart and i never even dropped it! i didn't even use it enough for it to wear! i'm super pissed, but they won't replace it. apparently, however, this is a common problem with this product. grrr

i love tarte cheek stains for a natural, glowing look. snarkpants, i love nars for most things. their lipsticks and lipgloss rock my world. copacabana is the secret to faking a good night's sleep. however, i had trouble w/ the powder bronzer in laguna, which was otherwise the most perfect color on me, not orange or muddy, but it would always make me break out. i've been afraid to try the powder blushes for the same reason. good luck w/ your experiment!

i LOVE nars!!! but recently, i've been breaking out on my cheeks. i'm taking a month sans nars, and seeing if the breakouts stop. sounds weird to hope for breakouts, but i really don't want to give up my favorite blushes :(

Definitely NARS, for me. They have such great unique shades, and they offer mattes too, which is a huge plus point for me. Dolce Vita is one of the best shades around. Shu Uemura is great, too.
