FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: 5 Blushes For Non-Blush Wearers

Anybody here who's doing school already? How was it? Hope everything's doing well for you so far. :) Btw, I will post a pretty helpful article/quiz that you can use to determine the beauty products that you should be buying for the incoming school year. Watch out for that! :)

Anyway, I'm gonna talk about blush today and the question is from Alen:

Blush is not part of my everyday makeup routine and I usually wear loud/bold/dark red lips. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with contouring because I find that it doesn’t clash with my bold lips. However, I find that not using blush feels like my look is somewhat incomplete. I tried using a rosy blush with light hands, but I feel the result is too much. Can you recommend a neutral blush that can somewhat give a natural flush without it being too loud since I use bold colors a lot. I find that cool colors complement me more than warm does. Any help will be appreciated.

Aloha Alen!

Thanks for the question. I feel you when you said that you feel incomplete when you're not wearing blush. Blush is such a wonderful makeup product and it's a difference maker for your look. Also, like you, I'm into vampy lip colors!

You can actually sport blush and lip color at the same time without looking like a clown-just choose to play up one makeup and tone down the other one.

As for your request, here's a list of my favorite natural- looking blushes. Click READ MORE. ;)

- This favorite blush of mine from Benefit is a brilliant mix of highlighter and blush in a Rose Gold hue and satiny texture. When it's on the cheeks, it looks like the glow you get after watching your favorite band or singer!

My top 4 after the jump!

- This blush is true to its name: it delivers melting color that does not sit on top of the cheeks. If you're into matte finish, but you prefer a natural- looking one, you'll find what you're looking for in this line. ;)

-  Chanel's silky, soft, precious powder blush is the undisputed, most natural- looking blush ever made on earth. It's a blush-but-not-a-blush kind of product because it amplifies your natural flush, but manages to look VERY natural even if you layer it on.

 5. Max Factor Creme Puff Blush

- I consider this lovely collection of baked blushes as my drugstore dupe for Chanel Joues Contraste. Don't wanna spoil the review so that's all for now heehee. :D

- For budget beauties, Canmake's Glow Fleur Cheeks will give you that barely there coverage. It actually makes you look blooming! :)

Happy Friday y'all! :D

9 Lovely Thoughts

  1. This is a good batch of blushes! Nice choices! Can't wait for your review on Max Factor Creme Puff Blush:)

  2. Ohh~ I like them all. I love the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush. Looking forward for your review about it. Thanks for this informative post.

  3. Max Factor Creme Puff Blush is so interesting. I love how it looks on you on the photo you posted on IG.

  4. the max factor creme blush looks good on you!
    what type of blush will you recommend for someone with oily skin?

  5. I'm getting excited to know more about Max Factor Creme Puff :D

  6. Your make up using the Max Factor Creme Blush looks so natural. Even the colour and glow that Canmake Glow Fleur Cheeks gives looks one too!

  7. Among the blushes you've mentioned, I have only tried Benefit Rockateur and Canmake Glow Fleur cheeks. The rockateur really gives that natural flush. But I love the canmake more! From the packaging pa lang, it's so cute pa. And it gives that 3d-ish effect because of the four colors in the pan. You can use the colors pa separately, but it's way better if you combine them. :) I'm so excited with the Maxfactor cream puff review! Other blushes that I've tried that are subtle are the ones from Avon, Hard candy (the one in the box too), and Bobbi Brown. :)

  8. Wow! As usual very sossy ang mga products mo ms. M! Mukhang i can only afford the maxfactir and canmake :) but anyway, this one is a nice post.. it gave me the info na meron palang ganon na girls who doesnt like blushes the way i do.. ako kasi, i need to wear at least blush and brows before going out coz i feel too naked without them.. but whenever i wanted to rock berry lips, or dark reds, even violet ones..i just use my maybelline peachy toned blush and glide on some of the left overs of my foundation on my cheek it becomes natural and suits my lipcolor naman ;)

  9. Janine: Yup, we all have that one, universal blush shade. I find that my universal blush shade is Benefit rockateur. :)

    Abegaill: Bobbi Brown ftw! They have natural- looking matte blushes. :)

    Eunhae: Hi there and welcome to TBJ! Thanks! Actually, powder blush is recommended for oily skin. :)

    Glenda, Kkumkugo, Jhake, and Jeremy: Review will be up later! :D

    Charm: Which one do you like betteR? :)
