Favorite Blushes At The Moment ~ Love At First Swipe ( July 2012 )

Hello hello! Wow I feel like a stranger to the blogging world when I haven't blogged in a while =( anyways I thought that I would update my blog once in a while so I thought why not share with you guys what blushes I have been loving lately! If you have been a long time reader of my blog then you know that if I were to only collect one makeup item, it would be blush. I don't know why but I just get attracted by blushes when ever I see them whether it's high end or drugstore. Does this happen to any of you guys? =) 

Haha anyways I'm here with three blushes that I have been using for the past month and a half and I have really fallen in love with them! They are different shades ranging from a pink, to a peach and a nude, so nothing to crazy =) now let me get started with the reviews! 


MAC Pinch O' Peach: What can I say about this blush? Well it has been in my monthly favorite posts for a couple months and I think it's just the perfect pink blush for girls that is light to medium skin toned. It is a sheertone blush which means that you can build up the color with a couple of applications of the blush ( It usually takes me two times to get the perfect pink flush ) I find for this particular blush it will last around 5 to 6 hours before I would have to re-apply, but I honestly don't mind re-applying blush cause it makes me happy =D haha I hope I'm not the only one that thinks this way.. 

MAC Melba: I will say this honestly and that is that I only got this blush recently and I'm loving it already!! I love how it is a matte finish and the pigmentation is amazing ( even one swipe of this is a little too much so you might want to tap off the excess ) I also love how it shows up a little bit darker then it is in the pan so I can use this as a " contour " shade and sculpt out my cheekbones =) now typically a powder blush will last 5 to 6 hours on me but for this one it lasted 7 to 8 hours which is awesome! I don't know why I didn't get this blush any sooner lol 

Tarte Exposed: I have tried other colors from this range but I just didn't like the way that it looked on my skin ( I tried out Blushing Bride and Natural Beauty ) so I kinda gave up on this line but there was a time where Tarte Exposed was showing up on Youtube and the blogging world so I thought I would give the line a second chance and I'm glad I did. I really like the way it shows up on my skin and how natural it looks, now I don't know if it really lasts 12 hours as it claims but I do know that it lasted 8 hours for me and I really like that =)
