Beauty Blog Advent Calendar 2012: 14/12/12

Last year, Sparklecrack Central came up with the idea of a Beauty Blog Advent Calendar where we featured little bits of beauty blogging things we love. This year, she gave us a bit more notice and we are joined by The Unknown Beauty Blog!

Beauty Blog Advent Calendar - Day 14

I found a picture on my computer that I've been meaning to post for absolutely ages!

Here are my 5 favourite blushers!

I've got quite a good stash of blush, but these are definitely my favourites. It's actually a pretty well traveled selection of blush, two were bought in countries that were not the UK! I've just noticed these are all plummy and mauve shades. I do have plenty of peachy blushers, but these are just the ones I love.

-Golden Rose Terracotta Stardust "102" - a very pretty mix of pink, plum and gold. I bought this in Turkey and it was one of my best make up buys! It's very nicely pigmented and looks amazing on.
-The Body Shop Leaves "Berry" - quite possibly the prettiest make up item in my stash! This came out a couple of years ago and was far more expensive than I expect Body Shop make up to be, but worth every penny.
-Vivo Cosmetics Baked Blush "Cinnamon Glow" - the cheapest of the blushers here! I ignored this shade for a while in favour of the pinks and peach but it turns out this has been my favourite. It's a shimmering dusty mauve that gives me a lovely looking glow.
-Lorac Blush "Soul" - possibly my favourite blush of all time! Purchased in Atlanta, I'm planning on exploring Lorac further during my next trip. Another dusty mauve, this one only has a slight shimmer and I adore this!
-MAC Sheertone Shimmer "Plum Foolery" - I do think MAC's blushes do get overlooked for the more exciting products, but their Sheertone Shimmers are one of my favourite types of blush. They're pigmented and glowy, just wonderful!

I'd love to know what your favourite blush is!      


  1. I hope that The Body Shop brings back that blusher! I really love that one!

    1. I know! It was probably their best thing ever :)

  2. I find the Vivo interesting, the mention of mauve sounds like the perfect color for me too! LOL

    1. Email me your address and I'll pop one in the post for you. They're really not expensive.
