Hi girls!

I was searching the whole forum for a Blush thread! There are so many threads about eyeshadows, but isn´t there any thread where I can look up pictures of different blushes on skin? Would be so helpful for my choosings. As I hear that for example "Mac Cheek" and "Mac Rose Quartz" and "Nars Orgasm" are absolutely must have blushes! Would be so interested in how they look on skin!

If there isn´t any topic about it, may I start one? Or would it be to circumstantial?

If not it would be soooooooo great if you would put up some pictures! I would start if I had any Mac blushes.

I've seen NARS Sin blush look fabulous in photos of other people but when I bought it I just looked bruised so I swapped it away.

yeah, blushes you kind of have to see them in person to see what color they really are. if you see someone wearing it in a pic, it might look different because of their skin tone, how healily they apply it, etc. plus you want to make sure you like it before you buy it. some colors look nice, but are either too pink, red, or something IRL.

Liz: Thank you for that tip! I didn´t know about this forum. I will check it out more often now!!!

Lealabell, Liz: It seems like you are right. It will depend on the skin type how the blush appears. I didn´t think about it. Just need some examples as it is very hard to find pictures of different blushes. Do you know any site on the internet where I can check out blushes? I will also watch the Face of the day forum.

@Jennifer: My english is so bad. Many words I have to look up in a dictionary. That´s where "circumstantial" comes from. It means that s.th. costs to much effort or something like that. Sorry for those bad words!!!!


You don´t like Mac blushes? Why? Is it because of the colors or because of the applying?

The blush isn't a thing that you buy just because you liked it on your friend or you favourite star, for it may look very nice on her and ugly on you!
take it from me, go to the nearest department store and see it yourself,
but i'm gonna recommend some brand names, with a nice variety of shades:

Chanel: very nice blushes, subtle and amazing colors with a very romantic -if i mgiht say :icon_love - shimmers..



Guerlain: if you have normal or dry skin;then you should consider the Bubble blush from guerlain, it's a cream base blush, very cute and long lasting, natural shades too.
but be aware, if your skin tends to be oily, try to use a very small amount of it, then apply a powder blush "of the same color" on top of it to avoid your face from looking so shiny..



Givnechy: I honstly just used the bronz/golden one, and it's incredible the texture the color the everything, and you can also use it as face powder for contouring and such, for it's got 4 shades a pack, go and check it out..



Nouba: i don't if you could easliy find this brand, even online it's very hard to find it, but their blushes really kick asses
if you ever saw the name anywhere, i think you should take a look at the blushes and the e/s (specially the black and the brown one <3)



I really hope this was helpful for you ....

anything else, just ask ....

no, your english is good! i swear!

i don't like mac blushes because i've tried a few and they all don't blend well on my skin or are too sheer (and i've tried different finishes) and then when i try to get color, it's way too much.

NoOory: You spent so much effort for giving me a detailed information! I was really blown away! That´s so kind! I printed out all you replies and I will try all these products!

I would like to get Nras blushes but couldn´t find them here in Germany. Definately like to have the Nars Orgasm blush. Seems to be the most popular ones!

Sabrina: anytime my dear


Marian: are you sure that orgasm blsuh looks the same color in your post?

cause if it does i'd definitely go for it (even though it's hard to find in SA!)

the thing is that i've seen some girls showing their photos of it, but it doesn't look like this color at all, it has more like this pinkish kinda touch, like all of my blushes, this for i didn't buy it!

if anyone got the blush already, please let me know ...
