My Thoughts: OMG at the pigmentation!! You have to apply this blush with a light hand but the good news is that it blends out easily if you happen to apply too much. Aruba is a stunning bright matte orange.

I have loved everything I have tried by Sleek. The products are amazing and very affordable. The only down side is the availability as some of the products they will not ship to the US due to FDA regulations.

Product:Stila Custom Color Blush Self-Adjusting Bronze

Price: $20 from Stila

Product Description from the Website:
Why we love it…

Our newest addition to the Custom Color Blush family, this perceptive one-shade-fits-all powder blush comes in a natural bronze hue, with a hint of subtle shimmer for a customized sun-kissed glow, perfect for you.

Product Description

An innovative powder blush that reacts to each individual’s pH to create a perfect, personalized shade with its unique one-shade-fits-all technology. The ultra-blendable, velvety soft formula magically smoothes the appearance of fine lines and imperfections leaving skin with a luminous, flawless flush.

My Thoughts: This is my second favorite bronzer right behind Benefit Hoola. This bronzer does have a slight shimmer in it but once blended into the skin it is not noticeable at all. If you recall I am a huge fan of Stila’s Self Adjusting blushes, they are simply amazing. If you are new to bronzers and/or contouring I think this would be really great for you because it is super easy to work with.

Product: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed

Price: $25 from Tarte

20120719-193532.jpg

Product Description from the Website:
For those who want an alternative blush to tarte’s award-winning gel and cream cheek stains, we’re now offering Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in 8 shades. Inspired by our best-selling cheek and lip stains, shades range from soft pink (dollface) to deep berry (flush). Used alone or with our best-selling natural cheek stains, this blush is sure to give you that natural glow.

My Thoughts: Exposed is a nude blush. I wouldn’t normally pick out a blush shade like this but I saw a couple of fair skinned ladies using it and it was really flattering. I love this blush! It really is a flattering shade for all skin tones.

A collection of luxurious powder blushes, each with a silky texture.

What it does:
Sweep on this silky, sheer, and ultra-buildable blush to create your own true hue. Each of these shades contains rhodiola, an arctic plant root that makes cheeks appear refreshed, allowing them to come alive with color. Whether you’re looking for a luminous flush or a pop of vibrance, this featherweight formula gives you the color of your dreams.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

My Thoughts: I am a sucker for anything coral these days so I picked up this blush on a whim. This is probably my favorite blush at the moment. It is so smooth, light, and overall amazing. I would say that this definitely lives up to its claims. Swatch is over bare skin.

I have been wanting to try out the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes for quite some time. The first shade I purchased was Amused which is a bright pink. The shade and formula are amazing! Amused blends out nicely and is long wearing. Check it out!

Do you have any of these blushes? Which shade is your favorite?


Twizted Blush by Evil Shades is described as a dusty blue with a fierce pink shift. When I saw this blush I had to have it, I mean blue blush?! It may not be practical but I couldn’t resist. I only wish that the pink shift was stronger as I think that would make it more wearable.
