5 Blushes I'm Currently Loving

What need is there to come up with a reason to wax lyrical about my recent blush loves? I don’t need much of a push to chatter on about my favourite beauty product, so I’ve rounded up the five I’ve been wearing in recent months to share with you all.
As I’ve mentioned previously, the bulk of my makeup stash has been packed away and unpacking it has fallen by the wayside as we busy ourselves with house renovations and setting up our first home together. The ‘lazy-day’ cheek shade that I’m sure you’ve all heard me rave about is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed, which is a simply amazing rosy neutral that lasts all day and looks amazing on. If I feel like something a bit brighter that lasts all day, I turn to my Chanel Joues Contraste in Pink Explosion or Frivole. My only two Chanel JC’s, I have fallen in love with the formula this year and can’t wait to pick up the new shade Accent from the upcoming holiday collection. It’s meant to be a really pretty shimmery neutral pink shade, and from the limited promo images out there I just know I’m going to be picking it up when it launches in Australia. Okay, blush swoon over, back to the point of the post! (Moral of that tangent? Go and buy a Chanel JC!) 
The only cream blush I’ve been wearing lately is the newly released Ice Bomb crème blush from essence, the solo cheek shade from the Me & My Ice Cream collection. The gorgeous apricot shade blends like a dream, and though I’m upset that the packaging of mine has cracked, I’m still really happy to have picked up this bargain blush! The last and possibly most random blush shade I’ve been wearing is the MAC Mineralize blush in Gentle, a plummy pink shade with gold shimmer. I use a light hand with this as it has the tendency to make me look a bit too flushed, but the shimmery effect is really flattering on my cheeks.
What blushes have you been wearing lately? Any shades or formulas I need to check out?

    1. Thanks Kat! Mellow Mauve sounds really nice, I've heard some great things about the ELF brand but am yet to try them out - they are a great bargain brand aren't they?

  3. You have some beautiful blushes here Emma :) The Chanel looks heavenly! I am really wanting to try the new Essence collection but sadly the Essence displays in SA are woeful. Your Essence blush looks like the perfect peachy tone. The search continues. Take care!

    1. Thanks lovely! I think essence need to work on stocking their displays regularly and releasing larger numbers of their products, it is so frustrating when you can't get your hands on something you want >< I hope they get their act together in SA soon! x

    1. I've never actually tried those Mosaic blushes, I have the baked blush which is super pigmented but the mosaics look like they are a lot easier to work with :)

  7. I love blush, i usually do this step last (before powder) and this is when the make up look really comes together for me. MAC Gentle looks lovely. Lately i've been loving MAC's Mighty Aphrodite from their wonder woman collection a couple of years ago! i rediscovered it and have been loving it! I have a post featuring it soon c:

    1. Glad to hear you love blush too Chloe :) I usually apply at the end of my routine too, and totally agree that it ties a whole look in so easily. I am so sad to have passed on Mighty Aphrodite, so many people in the blogging world still talk about how good it is ><

  8. I keep on hearing about Tarte and how fantastic their shades and products are - I think it's a sign I have to try them ;)

    I found an Ere Perez cheek and lip stain kicking around my make-up bag, and I've been using this for blush and loving it! So it turns out I own 3 blushes really, not 2, ha!!
