Blusher is one thing I've not used in years
I've just really used a small amount of bronzer
St tropez as blusher
And only lightly on the apple of the cheek

But I'm just trying to revamp things a bit
As I've realised I've been stuck in a rut make up wise and being doingit the same for years

(Brown hair, green eyes, sallow skin)

Benefit Posie Tint in the summer and Bourjois Rose d'or in the winter.

I only get the tiny Posie Tints as I find the metallic paint flakes off when it gets bashed around in my makeup bag.

Brown skin. Mac

MitzyLeFrouf Fri 28-Apr-17 13:31:57

Blonde and pale skin.

Nars Deep Throat. A very natural peachy pink.

BumbleNova Fri 28-Apr-17 13:32:38

laura mercier one. really natural colour on my very fair skin.

I love the Tom Ford blush in inhibition worth the money .

FluffyBathTowel Fri 28-Apr-17 13:46:38

Blond with pale skin. Bobbi Brown Pale Pink. Though it doesn't look that pale in the pot it goes on nice & subtle.

I have the Urban Decay flushed palette. Has a brown, pink and a highlighter. I am fair skinned

FluffyBathTowel Fri 28-Apr-17 13:54:13

And no glitter either. Hate glittery blushers. I'm looking at you Nars Orgasm sitting in my make-up drawer never being used.

The Rosie Huntingdon-Whitely cream blushers from her range at M&S are great. I have the bright pink one and it's lovely.

I love blusher. I have loads. My faves are naturalish tawny shades. My current top 5, because 1 is too hard.

In no particular order

NARS Douceur (powder) - discontinued but fab

MAC Blushbaby (powder)

M&S Rosie/Autograph Creme blush in Camisole Blush (possibly Flush?!) (cream)

Tarte Amazonian Clay in Exposed (powder).

Max Factor Creme Puff in Nude Mauve (powder) - sort of glowy without glitter. Gorgeous and a bargain. Like a cheap Hourglass blusher but the finish is just as beautiful.

NomDePlumeReloaded Fri 28-Apr-17 14:19:38

The NARS, MAC, M&S & Tarte are all matte. Forgot to mention that.

EmmaC78 Fri 28-Apr-17 14:23:37

I use the Bobbi Brown pink shimmer brick.

Cakescakescakes Fri 28-Apr-17 15:34:37

Laura mercier Rose Bloom. Beautiful natural shade.

Botanicbaby Fri 28-Apr-17 16:26:36

Sleek rose gold powder blush looks great on fair skin.

Also boots natural collection cream blush in natural glow. Really gives fresh glowing complexion.

Nars Orgasm: scary in the palette but the lightest whisper of it does something amazing to my v pale face. It also looks amazing generously applied to my v tanned sister.

Ktown Fri 28-Apr-17 19:10:14

Stila petunia or lilam
Poise tint
Bourjois 12 hour gel blush
All are great and I switch depending on mood.
Less is more though.

JennyHolzersGhost Fri 28-Apr-17 19:13:03

I had a thread on this a while back. Now happily rocking Nars Multiple Matte in Exumas (a coral-pink - subtler than it looks). I too dislike sparkly blushers. I like a cream texture because it gives a more dewy finish.

Girlywurly Fri 28-Apr-17 21:22:38

Nars Deepthroat.

Freezingwinter Fri 28-Apr-17 21:25:38

Very pale, dark brown hair and blue eyes

Lady like baked blusher by Nyx

SuperBeagle Fri 28-Apr-17 21:29:55

Pale, naturally blonde (often dyed brown), green eyes.

NARS Orgasm. It was a cult classic years ago but I think its reputation is deserved.

The Hourglass blushes (in general) are great too.

Tanfastic Fri 28-Apr-17 21:37:37

I saw a similar thread on this recently and a few recommended Daniel Sandler watercolour blush. I ordered one last week and I love it, goes on lovely and a much nicer finish I find than a powder blush.

CointreauVersial Fri 28-Apr-17 21:59:01

MUA Cupcake.

Lovely neutral, non-sparkly, powder blusher, and cheap as chips from Superdrug.

Sciurus83 Fri 28-Apr-17 22:07:47

Clinique peach pop

In winter I use Nars Orgasm (it's a cliche but it's just the perfect shade for my skin). In summer I use Chanel's Tan de Soleil across my cheekbones instead of blusher.
