Make Me Blush | Collection Part 2: High End

So I've already done the first part to my blush collection over here but here is my current High End blush collection, although I will be updating soon to accommodate the new ones I have recently purchased. I am super happy with my blush collection now although you can never have too many blushes!

MAC
Sometimes the quality is really noticeable with higher end brands, as I've found with MAC their blushes have great pigmentation & amazing lasting power. I'm hoping to expand with a couple more of their mineralize skin finishes. I also have a couple of Cream Colour Bases but I consider them to be highlighters although can be a base for blush. Out of the powder blushes I prefer the normal formulation as the sheertones obviously don't turn out as pigmented as they look in the pan & in a finger swatch.

L-R: MAC Mineralize blush Warm Soul {Satin w/ hint of shimmer}, Pink Swoon {Sheertone matte}, Peachykeen {Sheertone Shimmer} Dollymix {Sheertone shimmer, Her Blooming Cheek {Powder, matte}
 My favourite/ most used colours out of these would have to Warm Soul for a bronzed summery look & Peachykeen/ Dollymix, although I said I'd prefer them to be more pigmented when on the cheeks but it is still pretty for a wash of colour.

Assorted Blushes
Now these are the blushes that I only have one from each of the brands I have. I can't wait to try more of a variety! I'm particularly looking forward to more NARS, & try Tarte & Benefit.


L-R:NARS Orgasm {Shimmer w/ glitter particles}, The Balm Cabana Boy {Shimmer}, Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon {Liquid-stain}, Inglot #51 {Matte}, Topshop Head Over Heels {Cream}

I've been lucky to have been able to try different brands from getting the Becca Beach Tint in a magazine (years ago!) although it's not something I use often, the Topshop cream blush from a giveaway & my first NARS product in a blogsale a few years ago (I have never used it heavily because it was 'precious' to me hehe)

My most used/ favourites would be Cabana Boy even though I've had it the least I've found it to be so versatile & I love the Inglot one for a brighter coral colour.

So that's it for my blushes, sometimes I go through periods when I feel like I need soo many blushes when I probably have way too many similar ones already! Anybody else?

What are your favourite High End brands for blushes?

**I will be updating shortly with newly purchased blushes but as I have made this post a while ago I couldn't include them here.

  1. I love Warm Soul, i only picked it up a few months ago but i think i'll get a lot of use out of it now that the weather is warming up in Melbourne.
    My favorite blushes of all time are Illamasqua and NARS blushes ^^

  3. I have very few 'high end' blushes but my favorite blushes are from Bourjois!! My first love in the blush department was from Lancome however, the 'rose sable' shade in their travel palettes, its my ideal blush shade for all occasions!

  9. Peachykeen is the only MAC blush I've had that I've finished completely! I love Dollymix too it's so pretty, I think I'll bring that one with me when I go away to uni... I would say my favorite "high end" blushes are my NARS blushes and the Benefit boxes (I have Bella Bamba and Coralista). They're just so pretty and the packaging on them all feels so unique/special!

  10. I want to try Warm Soul sooooo bad! The only problem with Mineralize blushes is they don't seem to last that long on the skin. Great collection :)
