Top 5 Blushes

Hello cupcakes!

Hope you are all well!

I am slowly working my way through my 'Top 5' product series! Today is the turn of the blushes! I found this quite a tricky one as i have quite a few blushes and a lot of them i love, so maybe i should have done a top 10?! But i whittled it down and here are my favourites!

♥ Illamasqua Promise Cream Blush ♥
Im sure you all know how much i am in love with Illamasquas promise cream blush! I have featured it in a couple of favourite posts most recently in my July Favourites (Link!). The formula of these is amazing, highly pigmented and a little goes a long way! They are so easy to apply, i honestly recommend these to anyone! Gorgeous barbie pink, blends like a dream and lasts such a long time, LOVE!
♥ MAC Bite of an Apple ♥
MAC's Bite of an Apple blush is limited edition from the venomous villains collection which was like marmite in the blogging community, people either loved it or hated it! I personally loved it and thought there was some gems to be had, in particular this gorgeous matte coral blush! A light hand is needed and its not half as scary as it looks in the pan!

♥  Benefit Bella Bamba ♥
Benefit Bella Bamba featured in my June Favourites (Link!) and is one of my newest purchases. It is a gorgeous mix between peach and pink with shimmer which i love. 
♥ NARS Deep Throat ♥
NARS Deep Throat featured in my NARS Blush Collection Blog Post (Link!) obviously! I have had this for quite a while and it was left unloved for quite a while as i was such a pink cheek lover! This summer has seen me move over into the peach side and this has had a lot of loving! I took it on both my holidays this year and it got a outing most nights! It can be quite sheer but easily built up if needed, love this! 

♥ MAC Hang Loose ♥
MAC Hang Loose is limited edition from the in the groove collection. This is probably one of my favourite favourite blushes as i am in love with MAC's mineralize blushes. Love the baby pink matte pink side worn alone and swirled together makes the most gorgeous shimmery lavender pink. 

What blushes would be in your top 5? Do we share any favourites?

  27. I can't decide if I need Benefit Bella Bamba or not haha. I saved up my Boots points but I can't quite bring myself to do it. Especially when it reminds me of Sleek Rose Gold. Decisions, decisions! xx

  33. After reading this post, I think my next blush purchase is going to be the illamasqua cream blush and bella bamba, although bella bamba does look similar to the Nars orgasm which i own already. Maybe they look difference once applied on the cheeks
