Five Favourites: Blushes

Starting today there will be a new series on the blog: Five Favourites. Each week I'll feature five of my favourite products in a specific category. Today we're starting with my five favourite blushes I currently own.

Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush in "Pearlescent Pink"

This coral coloured blush gives a lovely healthy glow to the cheeks. It does contain fine glitter but it doesn't get all over your face after a few hours. You can read my review and see swatches here. Wet N Wild products are stocked in large Clicks stores.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in "05 Lovely Pink"

This little round pot contains a light pink shimmery blush. It's quite a light colour but on fair skin it looks beautiful. I spoke about it here. The Max Factor blushes are sold exclusively at Clicks stores and these creme puff blushes come in four shades.

Benefit Coralista

Ah, Coralista. No list of favourite blushes would be complete without it. This blush is super fine and is a gorgeous coral-ly apricot shade. You can read my review and see swatches here. You can buy Benefit products online from Red Square or buy it in-store at selected Edgars stores.

Stila Convertible Color Dual Lip and Cheek Cream in "Peony"

This is the only cream cheek product on the list as I tend to not use them so much nowadays. My skin is combination oily and sometimes my cheeks also decide to get a tad oily, so I don't want to worsen the condition by slapping on a cream product! That being said, this convertible lip/cheek colour in Peony is a beautiful nude pink-brown and will suit just about every skin tone. Stila products can be found at selected Woolworths stores and I have found them on several online sites such as Takealot.

I had trouble getting the swatches to show up, but from left to right is Wet N Wild, Max Factor, Benefit, and Stila.

Catrice Blush Artist Shading Palette in "020 CorAll I Need"

This is a bit of a cheat as these are actually three blushes, but I figure it's ok since I don't just use one of the blushes, I tend to swipe my brush along all three blush shades and then apply it to my cheeks. There's a pink shimmery shade, a matte pinky blush shade, and a shimmery coral shade. You can see my first impression post and swatches here. Catrice can be found at Dischem, Red Square online, and very selected Pick N Pay stores.

What are your favourite blushes? Let me know in the comment section.

Until next time!
