My Current Favourites: Blushes

For the second part of My Current Favourites series, I have decided to share my favourite blushes. To read the first part about my favourite brushes, click here.

These five blushes are my absolute favourites at this current point of time, with the addition of Benefit Bella Bamba, which is currently at my bf's. I was just there earlier today when I realized that there are brushes there that I love as well. So I might have to make a "My Current Favourites Part 2" for the brushes and cosmetics at his place.


Top row, left to right: Benefit Hervana, The Body Shop Macaroon, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Peaceful.
Bottom row, left to right: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush in Tipsy and Splendor.

I don't have many varieties in terms of brands because I have just started getting into Tarte blushes and I absolutely love them! I want MOAR!!


Benefit Hervana: Love the different colours in this box. I've been swirling my angled blush brush (see my current favourites brush post here) around the box so it picks up all the different colours, and the end result is a perfect light pinky colour (swatches below).

The Body Shop Macaroon: I picked this up when I was in Singapore 3 months ago. I was in the market for a coral blush, and this is the perfect coral colour for me. It has a matte finish, which I love.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Peaceful: I bought this through a blogsale. I actually tried the Tipsy one first, and wasn't all that impressed because I couldn't get much blush on my brush. However, I bought the Peaceful one anyway and I fell in love with Tarte. It is so pigmented, and my brush picks up the colour from the pan much easier than Tipsy for some strange reason. This blush has got a slight shimmer in it.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Tipsy: As explained above, I have been having trouble getting product on my brush, although I think it's getting better after each use. Maybe I just need to wear out the top layer? Although it looks quite a scary bright coraly colour, it does not translate on the cheeks (well, at least on mine). I like to blend it in and layer it with a different coloured blush (in particular, the Tarte Splendour). Also, if I have accidentally applied too much blush and end up looking like a clown, I like to dust a layer of pressed powder over the top to mute the blush a tat.This blush has a matte finish.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Splendor: This blush was part of the Sephora Favourites In The Glow kit when I went all crazy and purchased a whole heap of stuff from Sephora (read about my haul here). This blush is pink with gold shimmer, which is why I think it goes well with the Tarte Tipsy because the pink kind of balances out the reddish-orange colour of Tipsy. Although, it can be quite shimmery for my liking, so I always apply this with a light hand.

  2. At the moment, I love Benefit's Sugarbomb. I have Hervana waiting under the tree and I can't wait to try it. Peaceful looks amazing! I'm going to have to check it out (you can't have too many blushes, right?).

  7. These look so pretty!I need to try out the Tarte blushes. I went to the store yesterday and almost picked up Hervana(wanted a light pink blush) but I picked up Dandelion instead.I realize now that Dandelion isn't really a blush but more of an all over face brightener. Wish i had grabbed Hervana :(I don't think I've found a blush that I can call a favorite yet.
