My Blush & Bronzer Collection

Hello lovelies, for those of you in the UK - I hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday Weekend and the lovely weather we are having :) So, ever since I can remember I have been a big fan of blush and my collection has grown rapidly over the past few years. After going through and chucking some oldies I thought why not post my collection!
L - R : MAC Mineralize Blush Gentle, Clarins Aglow, Sleek Rose Gold, Chit Chat Plum (mixed together)

Of these four I tend to wear the MAC and Sleek blush the most.  They are quite similar with a small hint of shimmer, and both long lasting. The Clarins blush has lived in my make-up draw for a while now and doesn't seem to get much use, however after swatching it I think I may try and get more use out of it! Chit Chat Plum was a cheap purchase from Poundland and was surprisingly nice! It isn't the longest lasting blush, however it does last a fair amount of time and looks lovely on the cheeks.

 L - R : ELF unsure, ELF Tickled Pink, Accessorize Shade 3, Accessorize Scandal

The Accessorize blushes are some of my favourites! They have a lovely texture, are long lasting and apply like a dream. These two especially have been used frequently since being purchased and are up there as my favourites. Unfortunately I am unsure of the name of the ELF blush on the far left, but this blush has a lot of shimmer so I do not tend to wear it too often. Tickled pink is a bit of a dud as it does not show up very much, the above swatch is after four or five swatches!

L - R : NYX Cream Blush Glow, Maybelline Dream Touch Unsure, Bare Minerals Joyous Jennifer, Mica Bella Terra Cotta, No.7 Mineral Perfection Rose Pink

After hearing so much about about NYX cream blush I couldn't help but purchase one! The texture is great, however I am not so sure that I chose the best colour. I find it quite hard to blend in and I often look like a clown! The Maybelline cream blush was a firm favourite last summer, it looks great with a tan. Both Bare Minerals and No.7 Mineral Perfection are my favourite loose blushes and they will defintitely be replaced once I run out. Lastly, I haven't tried the Mica Bella blush yet, but it will definitely get some use this summer.

L - R : ELF Healthy Glow Bronzing Prowder Warm Tan, ELF Contouring Blush Bronzing Powder, Benefit Hoola

Of these bronzers I used Benefit Hoola daily. Both the ELF bronzers are too dark for me at the moment and the one on the far left is just far too shimmery, however they are likely to look better when I have a tan.

Lastly I bought this 10 blush palette from E-bay and I have been pleasantly surprised. I have my favourites and have found they last surprisingly long! I would recommend trying these blushes, especially as it only cost me around £5.

What is your favourite blush?
