favorite fall blushes
ahh one of my favorite subjects: blush. one of the most enjoyable posts to read for me is 'favorite' type posts. i thought i would do my top fall blushes...before winter is here!
i tend to reach for richer, darker shades in the fall. think berry, plum, and wine shades. i actually dont have that many blushes in this category, i'd really like to expand it in the future.
nars multiple tint in beverly hills
beverly hills is a sheer, bright cherry gel. i love using this for quick looks. i have been reaching for this product for only mascara days. it gives that 'been building a snowman outside in the cold' cheek.
the formula is a bit sticky but very thin and sheer so blending is a breeze (i use either my fingers or a duo fibre brush for application.) these multiple tints were limited edition, but i have heard they still have them on drugstore.com.
sin is a muted sparkling berry. i have been wearing this blush NON-STOP. i thought i would be sick of it after using it for 2 weeks straight but the love keeps on coming.
there are gold sparkles but they dont translate on the face as such big particles, just glowy skin.
mac warm soul
hmm a no brainer, if you follow my blog you know i already have professed my love for this blush. very neutral, great paired with any look (especially smokey eyes)
not a berry shade, but i find myself wanting neutral brown shades like this to warm up my cheeks.
lyon is a matte wine shade. you can see me wearing this shade HERE.
love the quality of cargo blushes. plus you get so much product.
this shade is very similar to lyon, except it is sheerer and shimmery. it is also in the wine family.
like nars sin, the shimmers arent overwhelming, no big particles transfer on the face.

what are your favorite fall blushes? i wish i had more deep purple shades...most of my berry shades are red based purples. perhaps i should turn to illamasqua for my aubergine cravings...
