Product Intro :

The best selling blush in the world is now available in India, the NARS Orgasm blush is a miracle in a bottle. With this blush,I find that the less you’re wearing under it, the better, because when the shimmer isn’t sitting on top of foundation or concealer or powder, it doesn’t highlight pores as much it does otherwise, so what you mostly see is the peachy pink color, which just looks so fresh and youthful. Superfine micronized powder pigments ensure an irresistibly soft, blendable application.

Product Features :

  • Natural, healthy-looking color that immediately enlivens the complexion.
  • A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush
  • Silky texture in matte and shimmering shades Micronized powder ensures soft, blendable
  • Torrid. Satiny, no shimmer and a beautiful glowing coral on cheeks this is a gorgeous Summer-y shade that adds warmth and glow to your face
Pros : Cons :
Intense Color Expensive
Good Staying Power
Good Packaging
Highly pigmented and blendable

Product Intro :

My love affair with all things Bobbi Brown continues. Today, I bring to you the powder blush from Bobbi’s line. Not only is there a beautiful range of colours to choose from, there is a variety for people like me who prefer matte blushes. Applying a blush from the subtle range to your cheeks and then adding a pop of colour just to the apples with the dramatic colour. That makes one go from subtle to dramatic with pretty much the same products. It is very light so I don’t feel like I’m clogging up my pores when I put it on. Bobbi Brown’s Pale Pink blush has been a staple in my makeup bag for years

Product Features :

  • Silky formula glides on smoothly and offers a matte finish with long-lasting wear.
  • Lightweight feel & natural finish.
  • Unique Pop-up mirror, the perfect solution for easy application anywhere, anytime.
Pros : Cons :
Non sticky Expensive
Easy to work with
Sheer color that is buildable
Highly pigmented and blendable

This blush and highlighter combo palette gets your inner goddess all excited and hopping about. The shimmery blush shades have deep pigment.

Product Intro :

Benefit Benetint is the best flush you can get from a bottle. I had tried Benefit’s Tint at Sephora and after two hours of walking around with the bottle in my hand, I decided against paying what they were asking for it. I bought the lip and cheek stain and it is a fun product, if the original product is as much of a ride as this one is, I feel like I haven’t missed out purchasing the real thing. I mostly bought it out of spite, but ended up being very happy with it.

Product Features :

  • No breakouts/ allergies/ acne even on super-sensitive skin
  • Regular use of this formula reveals skin that’s visibly radiant and smooth
  • Give radiance without drying your skin
Pros : Cons :
Easy to apply Not suitable for oily skin
Rich color pay-off Little difficult remove
Long stay
Appropriate for workwear

Product Intro :

Give your skin a healthy glow with its easily blendable blush brand having a silky texture. Its highly pigmented formula guarantees long lasting colour which can keep you glowing throughout the day. I have been on the lookout for blush sticks and cream blushes for a while now and so was convinced to try these on. I must admit here that the name also quite attracted me. It really looks and feels huge. It’s super pigmented and one needs to know the right way to blend it to not look like a clown. I am practicing the art these days with a brush. With fingers it blends quite easily. It stays on my skin which is normal to oily these days for about 3-4 hours.

Product Features :

  • With silky texture it smoothly glides on skin.
  • Highly pigmented powder formula gives your skin long lasting color.
  • You can build the color up easily and it would show up beautifully even on dusky beauties.
Pros : Cons :
Combination of mineral and natural Little up-front on dry skin.
Extra comfortable application Too heavy for Summer
Elegant silky texture
Travel-friendly packaging

Product Intro :

I love to use it as a highlighter sometimes because of it’s fine milled & non-chunky shimmer particles. The texture of the Blush is soft and smooth and the shimmer particles are not chunky at all. The powder is well pressed into the pan and it’s not chalky. When you swipe it once, you will have just a wash of shimmer and very mild pigmentation. It’s not highly pigmented so you have to swipe multiple times to build up the pigmentation. The velvety texture paves the path for ultra-blendable application so that your blush makeup lasts for long and the color pays off really well.

Product Features :

  • The product weighs 14 grams and comes in
  • Its shimmer blushes can beautifully enhance your cheekbones for imparting that chiselled Cleopatra like look
  • The enchanting aroma of its scented variants can guarantee a beautiful sensorial experience while getting your makeup on point.
Pros : Cons :
Good packaging The brush is less soft
Texture is beautiful It is less pigmented
Buildable pigmentation
Gives a nice flush

A Guide To Using A Blush

Like I have already said, if done right, a blush can add so much definition and drama to your face. But if overdone or picking out a wrong shade can do you so much wrong. Now we don’t want that do we? Lets find out the things to keep in mind while working with a blush:

1. Choosing The Right Product

When it comes to choosing the right “product” this includes a wide spectrum of specifics such as what kind of looks do you usually go for, what kind of finish you expect, the brand that best suits your requirement, your travel needs, the format of application etc. Now since we discuss most of these in the product review, you could choose the right product from our list above.

2. Choosing The Right Texture

Another key point is to make sure you co-relate skin type and blush texture. Cream and liquid blushes suit those with dry and combination skin types. Powder blushes and sometimes, cream blushes suit those with oily skin type. For those with sensitive and rash prone skin, it is best to use blushes with natural ingredients or herbal ingredients. Powders can sometimes look too streaky and cream and liquid blushes can come off as patchy on the wrong skin type. So choosing the right texture is important.

3. Skin Type And Skin Shade

LIke we discussed, picking a blush that goes with your skin type is important. Another important attribute is choosing the right shade. If you choose a blush that is too light for your skin type, it might not come through. If you choose a blush that is too dark, it might be glaring to the eye. You need to choose the shade that fits perfectly in your skin shade range. Within this range, you cam alternate between a few shades and experiment with the look.

4. Practising Your Moves

Always practise using a blush. Find the right sweeping area on your face, now this is tricky as it changes from face to face. If you have sharp cheekbones and prominent contours, it’s quite easy to apply right around the cheekbones. If you have a round face and subtle cheekbones, sweep you blush slightly around above the cheekbone in an upward motion to create an illusion of an elongated, leaner face. If done right, the blush can make your face look slimmer or fuller, however you need it.

5. Brushes And Blushes

No matter what product you buy, having the right brush is the only way to get your blush game on-point. A kabuki brush is an all-rounder no-nonsense brush that can be used almost for everything – foundation, powder, contour and blush. Now since kabuki brushes are quite expensive, you can opt for a fluffy powder brush or even a precise blush brush that can lend you a perfect sweep of color to the cheek.

FAQs

1. Is blush safe on skin?

Blushes are mineralized compact powders with ingredients that give you a subtle hint of colour. These days the blushes also use extracts derived from plants and vegetables to lend that natural color to cheeks. They are absolutely safe on skin and have no side effects as long as you stay away from cheap, fake products.

2. How do we choose the blush shade?

To choose the blush shade, apply it in your inner forearm, if it feels slightly brighter than your skin tone, you can definitely opt for it. Choose a shade that compliments your skin tone. Do not go in for a shade that is much deeper or much lighter than your skin shade

3. What formats of blushes are available currently in the market?

The easiest and most common are powder blushes that come in a compact format. There are also blushes with liquid texture that come in nail polish look-alike bottles. Cream sticks are also another option that can be blended out with a brush.

4. What happens if I am caught without a blush and need a touch up?

Eyeshadows and lipsticks are close alternatives. It might be hard to find an eyeshadow palette but if you do have one, grab the shade that is the closest match onto a fluffy powder blush and sweep. Another and most easiest option would be to dab your lipstick on the cheeks and gently smudge with fingers into a subtle tint

5. What are the things to avoid while buying a blush?

In the composition, avoid SLS, SLES, artificial fragrance, artificial dyes, phthalates, sulphates and parabens (in cream and liquid composition) All these clog pores and dilate into the body overtime and cause severe implications for health eventually.
