During my vacation, some of my mu stash got adopted by my sis... which is fine with me cause I love to help her out with mu. I don't have any blush left!!!... I used to use Chanel but want to try others too
What brands would you recommend that will not have powdery look but still will be powder blush? Thanks ladies. xx

I have NARS Orgasm and that isn't too powdery when you put it on. I need to get some more NARS blushers, they always seem to go to the bottom of my wish list because I love e/s and l/g more.

A lot of the other girls rave about NARS too.

Nilufer, I have NARS Torrid and I love, love it. It is a peachy color. I have a few MAC blushes as well. If I had a NARS counter here, I'd definitely have lots more of their colors.

I'll give you a list of some MAC and Chanel blushes that could work for you:

If you like pinks,

MAC Pinch Me

MAC Coygirl

MAC Dollymix (don't be intimidated by its color in the case... it goes on sheer and adds a nice shimmery sheen).

Chanel Irreele Blush in Be Bop

If you want more peachy colors,

MAC Peechykeen

MAC Cheek

MAC Peaches

Chanel Irreele Blush in Incognito

Chanel Irreele Blush in Tea Rose (Lovely shade
)

Ikebana I've seen once at a Mac counter Peaches and Gingerly,and I really liked them!Peaches seem to have a little pink in it and Gingerly more brown.I didn't have the chance to try it on cheeks,and I want to ask you which one looks better on a NC20(that's my skintone in winter).

Sophia, Peaches is a nice neutral tone for everyday, but I think Gingerly would work well for you in the wintertime to warm up your skintone and give you an equal parts bronze and pink-ish look on your cheeks (its a sheertone).

Thanks Ladies
I knew Nars would be in my list
I do love Nars but one time I had a reaction and I got scared. It could have been for something else so I will give Nars another try
I'll check out the Mac and Stila blushes to meanwhile! Thanks again ladies, you all are awesome :icon_love xxx

I got rid of a lot of my blushes cuz I really only use Chanel, Nars, and Shu...there are a few others I still have but those are the best powder ones IMO.

Heck No!!! If you don't need it why spend the money on it
I just look like a gost without a blush so I need it. I tanned a lot while I was on vacation from swimming and tanning at the beach so I don't need it right away but I know in a month or so I'll start looking as white as I can be
so I need to prepare my budget for it...

I think you use the same Chantecaille real skin as me, so I'd recommend Mata Hari the one I've just bought. It's a matt rose pink, at the moment I prefer matt for blusher because I can layer shimmer powder over it to get that effect. I also like Orgasm, but I need to be careful with it as it's very pigmented and needs a light application but I think it should still be able to work for you. I'd also like to get deepthroat with kind of a lighter version of orgasm with less pink in it. I haven't tried some of the other ones recommened by the girls, but I have tried Sin and no matter how I apllied it it always looked a bit wrong, sometimes I even looked bruised so if I were you I'd give that one a miss.

Thanks Lea. It's too bad Sin didn't work for you. I have a friend who wanted to use Sin and it did the same bruising effect on her. As long as I used just a lil touch, it was fine for me. That was my only Nars blush but gave it away thinking it broke me out. I am going to try Nars again just to make sure. It might have been from a new fdtn trial that I broke out
