Let's pretend I was actually tagged to do this!I recently saw a post on this tag and I really wanted to do it, so I'm taking the liberty of tagging myself. :P I'd love to know what you think of tag posts, do you like them or wish they'd just disappear? I'm sometimes in the mood to do one, and I don't want to annoy you with my posts! Let's get right to the questions...
What colour blush suits you the most?
I would say natural, light pinks with a small amount of shimmer. MAC Well Dressed would be the perfect example. Sometimes, corals look okay as well but I'm really not a fan of them, I'm all about those pink blushers!
Pressed, cream or loose blush?
For sure pressed. I can't stand loose blushes (though I did love one I had from Lily Lolo). Cream is okay, but since my skin is oily I just prefer pressed blushers, and they're the easiest to apply as well.
Favorite shimmery blush?
Oh god, this will be so hard. I really adore the Max Factor baked mineral blushes, the purple and pink shades are both lovely. I also really like Physician's Formula Sexy Booster. I think that one takes the cake because it's chocolate scented and I just love using it.
Favorite matte blush?
I really have to dig through my collection for this one. I don't think I have a lot (if any) matte blushers, I just love shimmery ones so much! I guess Kiko Rebel Bouncy blush in 04 Passion Red Wine. It's quite pigmented, and a cream blush. I don't use it too often, but when I do, I love it!
Favorite cream blush?
I'm really not a fan of cream blushes but there is one I adore. It's from & Other Stories, it's called Haystack Peony Cheek & Lip Tint. I found it randomly in London and only paid 3 pounds for it. It's heavily pigmented, and while I don't like it for my lips, it really is a great blush shade!
Favorite drugstore blush?
I absolutely love Essence blushes. I'm not going to give names because I specifically adore the ones that come in limited editions! Recently I loved the Urbaniced one, and I had one from a Marbled collection ages ago. They're only about 4€ and always bring it on the quality. Totally recommend!
Favorite high-end blush?
Once again, this is really hard! I think the winner would be MAC blushers (I adore Dame and Well Dressed) along with Illamasqua. I've gone through two products of both brands. I love Morale and Katie by Illamasqua. Both brands have finely milled pressed blushes, which are my favorite, and they blend beautifully and last ages. I want to try MAC's mineralized blushes next.
Favorite bright blush?
I've actually run out of mine ages ago, but it is a firm favorite. It's by Sleek and it's called Pixie Pink. I think I even did a post on it ages ago when I started blogging! It's a gorgeous, hot HOT pink shade with minimal shimmer. So pretty, and such a bargain. It looks beautiful when applied and really gives a nice color. You can pack it on or go easy with the application. I really need to repurchase it.
Biggest blush disappointment/regret?
Oh, I'd have to say Milani Luminoso. I did a whole post on it here, and I just can't stand it. The shade is way too orange and makes me look sick, it has bad pigmentation and the shimmer is scratchy! Not for me, sorry.
Best blush packaging?
I really love the new H&M blushes, which would totally win IF they had a mirror on the lid! So my winner is Kiko with their Soft Touch blushes (not perfect as they get dirty fast, but I do like it). Closes and opens well, quality feels good and there's a mirror.
What's on your blush wishlist?
You mean that list that I keep adding something to every day? I guess my top 3 would be Hourglass blushers, the new Kiko collection and MAC Mineralize blushes!
Number 1 Holy Grail blush?
Drumroll please... It's Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 05 Lovely Pink. Maybe an unusual choice, but this blush is: buildable, pretty, shimmery, easy to apply, hard to eff up, inexpensive and a great shade. I just love it, you can pack it on or go easy, and it looks lovely and natural. The shade 20 Lavish Mauve is stunning as well!
This was so much fun! I'm going to tag one girl who is also my blogger of the day. Tina from Tina's Blog. She's a great friend and I've always, always loved her content. She has a stunning Instagram and I adore her haul posts and nail polish swatches. She's so very pretty and such a sweet girl, a really good friend and an awesome, dedicated blogger. You will love her!
Tina, you have to do this tag now! :P And of course, anyone else who wants to as well. It really is so much fun!
