Guest Post: Anamika's Favorite Blushes

Hi Everyone!

I am going to review  three of my favorite drugstore blushes today. I love colors and keep experimenting with different shades. Be it coral, pink, red  I love to try them all. Besides makeup, I am fond of smoky  eyes and when I was completely unaware of the art, I once Googled How to make smokey eyes and landed up on Becky’s blog. I am glad that the girl who taught me smoky eyes is letting me write on her blog J

Coming to the makeup blushes

1)      NYX Cream blush
When I got NYX Cream blush in my hand I was completely shocked by its colour. In the pan it looks like a dark red blush but when blended, it looks more like a warm red blush with red undertones.  It’s a shade which gives natural looking pink cheeks to me with bit of red hue. It stays all day long and best thing it costs just $6.50.

2) Revlon Cream Blush Coral Reef –
I was so eager and desperate to try these blushes out that I got all the three shades in it. Unfortunately only one shade - coral reef suits me and rest all wash my NC42 warm skin tone. This blush is a must have for those who are scared of experimenting cream shades.  Like butter on a hot toast (Yes! I am writing up this review before breakfast and thinking of it ), it glides into the skin because of its silicon based formula.

3) Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush Mellow Wine –
Blush blends easily and gives that natural look. It doesn’t  fade and lasts long. It’s a $3 blush and is highly pigmented and my skin doesn’t feel oily or gets overly dry after using it. It’s a matte blush and doesn’t enhance open pores. It’s just not a wine shade at all. It’s a warm pink blush with peachy undertones. It’s a blush which you will pick up almost every day.
