Blush Hoarder

Have been on a blush shopping spree. When I was visiting home in Toronto and had an extended stay, I found myself running out to find and discover blushes.

MAC Mineralize Blush in gentle has been my absolute favorite for the last couple of weeks. I love it to death. Really, I haven't had such an amazing blush which gives me the most natural flushed cheek look.   Then went back to get another mineralize blush in warm soul which is a more earth-toned blush. 

I was surprised to find Milani cosmetics at Loblaws near my parents' house. I have got Milani products before but through ebay or Well.ca. Have heard a lot of good reviews about this baked blush. The one I wanted to get was out of stock. It was the Rose d'oro. It was supposed to be a dupe for MAC mineralize skinfinish in Stereo Rose(limited edition and is of course sold out long time ago). The one I got is Berry Amore which is shade lighter than Rose D'oro. Pigmentation is still very nice. More of a coral pink. Have a bit of golden sheen but not noticeable on skin.

This is just one swipe of the blush. Very happy with the pigmentation. You only need a little to go a long way.

Just as I thought my blush hoarding is done for now, MAC is releasing the new Extra Dimension collection. 

It is such an interesting texture of the blushes. It is like a part gel, part cream finish. I ordered Bareness online. It is the middle blush on the top row of the picture shown above. It is a very sheer blush which I am hoping for layering for a more natural look. 

Skinfinish is going to be released in 3 shades. All look gorgeous. Since I don't have a MAC or the Bay near me(I'm back at home) so will have to stalk online to grab one of these beauties once it is available.


  1. Thanks for the review!
    I think next time i am buying a blush i will get the MAC in Gentle,because i am always looking for real natural looking blushes.Most blushes look fake on me,because i am so pale:)

  2. They all look lovely xx


  3. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
    and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
