SWATCHFEST: Peachy Coral Blush Collection!

Hola senoritas! Todayy I am going to swatch and talk about my peachy-coral-orange blushes just for you! ;) Now I know, a lot of people are mad about coral cheeks and have an extensive coral blush collection and so am I, believe me, I am, but this is my humble collection so far and I think it's more than enough for me at this point in life, actually maybe even too much. After all you've only got one face, and so many products :P Anyways, let's get swatchin'!






So from what I've collected over the past 2 years or so, I believe none of these are more than two years old, can you imagine that, what was I even doing with my life before coral blush! I have a couple of high end, if you consider theBalm high end, which it is but it's on sale half the year so it's quite affordable, and then I have mid-range and mostly drugstore. Hah, I like my cheapies, what can I say. So here are swatches on my NC 20-25 (extremely yellow) skintone. I'll talk through each color and describe it a bit more moving from the first one, the lightest to the deepest.

Illamasqua Powder Blush Lover ($34.88): The texture is amazing it's the smoothest blush I've ever come across in my little life and it smells so good too, kinda vanilla-ey and blends out flawlessly. It's the lightest of the bunch but it lasts extremely well and it's not at all ashy on my skintone. It's no longer carried by Sephora but you can get it off the Illamasqua website. Highly recommend!

MUA Lollipop ($2 approx/200 PKR): This little gem is just really the perfect coral blush on a budget. It's a smidge deeper than Lover but on the cheeks it really looks similar. It is slightly powdery but nothing I can't handle. Highly recommended!

theBalm Frat Boy ($20): This bad boy is THE BLUSH I'd pick over any other, anytime, anyday, if I was asked that I could only keep one blush to myself. It's more on the pinky side but it's a very peachy pink and compliments my skintone so beautifully! This is my absolute favoriteee, it lasts super duper long on my combination to oily skin and it looks kickass paired with just about ANY lipcolor. How can I not recommend?!

MUA Shade 3 ($2 approx): My first blush from MUA, this one is really pretty, but it's like an earthy, browny kinda coral. I like this one for the fall/winter but not so much in the summertime. There are probably better quality blushes of similar color out there, but the price can't be beat.

BH Cosmetics Floral Duo Blush in Rose ($4.99): Superb pigmentation. Stunning sheen. This one's also more on the pinky, rosey side as the name suggests but it transfers to the cheek more coral and warm. Beautiful if you're into shimmery finishes and also comes with a highlighter.

Sleek MakeUP Blush Rose Gold ($6.99): So INSANELY pigmented it's not even a joke. Super soft and blendable but it is pretty loaded with gold shimmer which I'm personally not a fan of. Otherwise, really amazing. Just not my type of finish.

Sleek Makeup Blush Coral ($6.99): This one from Sleek is quite nice actually, it has micro gold sheen (not glitters) running through which adds a bit of life to the cheek instead of going all out like with the Rose Gold and the color is super gorgeous, it's like a burnt coral which I find very unique because it's not your typical coral blush. Ofcourse if you buy this expecting a regular coral, you will be disappointed but I think it's a very nice twist on the color and perfect for Desi skintones.

Essence Blush Up Heatwave(PKR 720): The next two swatches are of the ombre Essence blush, the first is the two shades swirled together that creates a warm, pink coral and the next is the extreme left orange side which is also very peachy! Not my favorite but it is pretty to look at!

Sleek MakeUP Blush Aruba ($6.99): This one's limited edition unfortunately so there's little chance that you might find it but Sleek makes a Blush by 3 trio in the shade Pumpkin with a very similar bright, matte orange blush. As you can tell, this too is insaneeeely pigmented and bright but on the cheeks it doesn't look scary at all. Infact it is one my top favorite Sleek blushes! Recommend!




Hope you guys enjoyedd! Let me know if you like such posts and I'll be sure to do more of these in the future! Have a great day!! :)
