Five Favs post, I had a request to create a high street version of it. Without reaslising it all the blushers I'd picked for Five Favs were high end, D'Oh! So I thought I'd go through my collection and pick out a few blushers from the high street I've really loved. As much as I adore these shades, it's as much that as the brands themselves and formula's that I love.
As you can see, there's a pretty wide spread of shades, some being perfect for spring, and others might be more autumnal - personally I don't really wear blusher colours for seasons, more for my mood or to suit the look I'm wearing.
Makeup Revolution The One Blush Stick - £5*
Now these are pretty amazing - they're a cream product which is very well pigmented. They blend beautifully and come in 8 different shades - 4 are matte and 4 are shimmery, including bronzers and highlighters - a really lovely collection. They are dupes for the NARS Multiple blusher stick which is a more hefty £29 - personally with a price difference like that, there's no real contest.
Bourjois Cream Blush in 03 - £7.99*
This really is a beautiful blusher. I'm a real fan of Bourjois, their products are great quality and ooze of sophistication and class. This shade, 03, is absolutely gorgeous and subtly shimmery. It blends into the skin beautifully creating a gorgeous soft glow, always a winner in my book.
NYX Blusher in Summer Peach - £6
The NYX blushers are renowned for being fantastic, and boast a lot of dupes for high end brands, like Pinched as a dupe for NARS Orgasm. This shade, summer peach, is possibly my favourite shade from NYX - it's peachy and beautiful, while being shimmery like Pinched, adding a stunning glow. NYX blushers are great value for money and a really great quality - not cray cray pigmented unlike other brands - this is a good thing.
Maybelline blusher in Flash Plum - £5.19
I really adore this blusher, the shimmery plumyness (is that a word?) of it is amazing, and SO beautiful in autumn... or any other time of year ;) Now, the quality is great, although I have had the issue with this one where it goes all shiny on top, making it impossible to pick up product, so I've had to scratch it up to stop that happening. It's nicely pigmented and really blendable, an absolute favourite of mine.
So there you go, they're some of my favourite blushers from the high street - both new and old and all still available to purchase. All prices are correct at time of writing.
