Top 3 Tuesday - Blush

L-R: BYS, Australis, Bourjois
Blushes are one of those products that are really quite exciting to buy. They are also one of those products that even though I know I already have a shade exactly like that, I still find a way to justify why I need yet another one the same. I struggled to come up with only three of my top blushes this week.

1. Bourjois Blush in Rose Frisson
This is a beautiful warm pink blush that appears to be full of shimmer but in fact has just the right amount to give is 'glow' but not make your face resemble a disco ball. It comes in an adorable little pot that usually retails for around $20 (a little expensive if you ask me) but I got mine on sale for $5.

2. BYS Blush in Pretty in Pink

L-R: BYS, Bourjois, Australis
BYS blushes are fairly well known amongst Australian beauty bloggers, especially the shade Coral (which I don't actually own). I really like this blush because despite it looking quite cool toned and shimmery in the swatch, it really gives me a rosy glow. I use this one in winter as I like the pink flush, but in Summer I tend to go for warmer, more peachy shades.

3. Australis Blush in Dusky Rose
This blush is perhaps the trickiest to apply, but it is so worth it. This, whilst it does look a little scary, gives the most gorgeous natural glow to the face that no powder blush is capable of giving. It is a little tricky to blend, but it is so worth taking the time to do. I love this blush.

Close but not close enough...

This week for my close but not close enough product is my Face of Australia blush in Sheer Mauve. It is a beautiful shade, but the problem I have with this is that it is so messy to apply! It is remarkably difficult to get an appropriate amount of product on my brush and I always lose the majority of it into the atmosphere. I love the shade, but am not keen on the loose mineral style of it. It also has a strange smell, but I will go further into depth with that when I get around to completing a review on it.

  1. I love blushes :) I really love the look of the Bourjois one but I wouldn't turn the other two down either.

  2. They look really pretty!
    I've heard so much good things about the Bourjois pot blushes!
    I agree $20 is a kinda pricey.

    1. It is amazing, fiddly and a little difficult to apply as a blush (easy as a lip tint) but so worth picking up. Awww, thank you!
