It was from Maybelline. They don't even make this particular colour anymore ( I was 18 at the time ) It was cased in a slimline plastic, rectangular case, and was the softest, candy coloured pink. I loved it.
It's pretty evident that my love for blusher may have spiraled, a little out of control.
Yes, I work as a makeup artist, but sometimes I seriously judge the motives behind my makeup buying.
You know the good angel and bad angel you sometimes see on peoples shoulders in particular films? When the character is considering whether or not they should be doing something? When the little angels balancing on the shoulders whisper little words, to validate ( or not as the case maybe ) the characters actions.
I get that. When buying makeup.
Do I really need ANOTHER blusher?
Yes Ruth, it's for your kit. You need it.
But I already own, so many, and I'm sure I have one similar to this.
No, you don't. You have one that has less glitter. You need the glitter.
But I could just build the other one up, or add more glitter to it.
No, just buy it.
As you can see, I don't need much persuasion.
So, here I have tried, ever so hard I might add, to narrow down my collection, to my absolute favourites.
Please don't ask if I had to choose one, which would it be, because quite frankly, I can't.
First off. My favourite for blushers, without question is Nars.
I Love Nars. The pigments are so strong, and the colour's you see, are what you get.
I am on a mission to own all their blushers, but my budget does not allow. Yet.
So, my favourites.
Angelika - NARS This is one of my long time loves. Its a soft, baby pink, with a 'soft diamond sparkle' running through it. Looks amazing on very fair skins.
|I think we've all heard of this one. Orgasm - NARS. 'Nuff said.|
|Taj Mahal - NARS Burnt orange/copper. Looks amazing on Asian skin tone / Olive skin tones. Lush|

Till then my lovelies.
