Milani Baked Blush Luminoso

Cheeky Faves

Following on from my Top 5 Lip Products post, I thought I would do a similar thing for my favourite Blushes/Bronzers. I love trying out new cheek products and have quite a few in my collection which is why narrowing it down to only 5 was tough. So here’s a look into what made the cut…

From L-R – MAC Blush in Desert Rose, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso, Sleek Blush in Rose Gold, Nars Laguna Bronzer, Bourjois Bronzing Powder in Shade 51

1. MAC Blush in Desert Rose

This blush was my first ever MAC purchase, and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re after a matte blush that is highly pigmented, long lasting and perfect for a natural look, then MAC Desert Rose has got you covered.

2. Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso

Being an avid Youtube watcher of beauty videos, this was a blush I heard raved about many times. Milani is a brand that isn’t readily available in store in Australia, so I had to result to doing an online shop (oh what a shame) and ended up purchasing this from Cherry Culture a while back. As you can see from the swatch it’s a gorgeous coral colour, and has a slight shimmer when applied that’s just enough for a nice glowy look. I’ve got my eyes on Berry Amore for winter time, it’s just too pretty to resist.

3. Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

If you’re more of a shimmer on the cheeks kinda girl, then this is definitely the one for you. Lately i’ve been going through a Rose Gold phase, so this blush had my name written all over it. I have heard this blush compared to various high end blushes, so if you’re looking for a pink blush with gold shimmer then definitely check this out before investing in something that’s triple the price.

4. Nars Laguna Bronzer

As mentioned in my Get The Look post, this was definitely a bit of a splurge for me but was well worth it. Nars Laguna is a great bronzer for adding colour all over or for a bit of contour to the cheekbones. Either way, I would highly recommend this product if you’re fair skinned like me and can’t seem to find the right shade of bronzer. I can gurantee you will fall in love with it just as much as I did!

5. Bourjois Bronzing Powder in Shade 51

Last but certainly not least, this Bourjois Bronzer is more of a recent addition to my collection. It is often referred to the ‘chocolate’ bronzer as inside it is shaped like a block of chocolate, but that isn’t the only good thing about it. When I first swatched it in the shop I was a bit hesitant due to the orangey tinge it has to it, however despite my worries I purchased it and I’m so glad I did. This is slightly more pigmented than Nars Laguna, so I love using it when i’m doing more of a heavy look as it’s perfect for contouring. As far as i’m aware it isn’t available in Australian stores, although it can be purchased from www.asos.com.

I hope you enjoyed a peek into my favourite cheek products, I tried to incorporate some drugstore and high end loves so there’s something for everyone!
