I have a quick blog for you today featuring my three favorite blushes for Fall and Winter. These colors are beautiful, long lasting and very, very blendable. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.
I will start with the one I have used the most out of the three. It is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Exposed. I mentioned this one briefly in my last blog but saved all the details as to why I love it for this post. Tarte describes this color as a Nude Pink and I have to agree with that. I have to admit I was apprehensive about how much it would show up on my tan skin tone. However, after reading Divya’s blog post (multiple, actually) on this blush I was sold. She was right, my friends. It gives my cheeks that beautiful blushed from within look. It is super easy to apply and blend and it just melts on my skin. These lasts all day, too! If you are anywhere close to my skin tone, don’t be deterred to try it based on how it looks in the pan.
NARS blushes always get rave reviews because their blushes are highly pigmented and come is wide variety of shades. Dolce Vita is no exception. This is a bright dusty rose color that just brings my face to life. No matter how gray or cold it is outside this makes me look and feel like I can take on the day.
Last but not least is NARS blush in Sin. Another unexpected color for me to pick up and try, but I am very glad I did. Sin is a mauve-y color that has a bit of shimmer to it that adds just that hint of sparkle to my cheeks. This is not the chunky, elementary school kind of glitter. It’s a soft sheen that seems to bring out your cheeks a little bit more. I don’t use highlighter when I use this blush because it give me both in one application.
All of these products can be purchased at your local Sephora or Nordstrom, in the case of NARS. These are on the higher price end but they will last you a very long time. I’ve had Tarte’s exposed for about a year and I can still see the surface design. I’ve had Sin for two years and I have not hit pan on this one yet.
