To be honest, i have never ever wore blush in my life except during my prom in highschool...and thank god the MAC MA did a fantastic job!

however, i am looking for a new look , and i thought maybe i should add blush or a liquid highlighter. i have oily, pale, skin so i don't know if i should use a powder, gel, liquid blush or highlighter?

i don't want a dramtic look, just something i can pull off everyday.

Products i have considered:



Benefit Dandelion



Benefit High Beam



Too Faced Pressed After Glow



Tony & Tiny Multi-faced Color



Pop-Up Blush



biotherm Bubble Blush Gel



Biotherm Light Reflect

is there a certain color you want to get? like pink, peach, or bronzey?

i know a LOT of people like NARS orgasm blush. I like it too. hehehe

my faves are:

orgasm, nars lovejoy, mac margin, mac style with something on top of it like mac's quiver pearlizer or something, mac peachykeen is a nice shimmer pinky color.

those are the only ones i have right now though.

If you have oily skin, I would consider using the powder blush, the gels, & creams are oily anyway, so why add oil - to- oil ??

I personally did not like high beam or any of the Benefit blushes but I really like the blushes from Stila.

I love powders by NARS & some by MAC

I love creams by Stila, Becca, & Guerlain x

i only use powders. i've never tried gel/creams before because i think powders are fine for my normal/combo skin. i LOVE nars blushes. expensive, but very worth it.

my favorite highlight is revlon illuminating loose. there's a buy 1, get 1 free sale at duane reade now! those are $10+.

If you decide to get Nars Orgasm, let me know cause I am selling mine. Didn't do too much for me. Only used it like twice.

I use Dandelion and I really like it.

The Stila CC's give a great finish and aren't oily.

NARS powder blushes are the best! Great pigmentation and they're not flat colours - so they fab when you wear them.
