My Favourite Spring/Summer Blushers


I've chosen 8 blushers, unfortunately one of them is discontinued but I just couldn't leave it out.
You will notice there's a running peachy pink theme among them! I love peachy blushers, especially in spring/summer as I think they look great with a tan (real or fake)!

Nars- Deep Throat
Nars Deep Throat- This is a peachy pink shade - it looks more pink in the pan, but when swatched it has a lovely peach tone to it and also has a gold shimmer running through it. I find there is no need to use a highlighter with this blush. It has excellent lasting power goes on smoothly and wears evenly.


Becca- Flowerchild
Becca flowerchild - This is a shimmery peach mineral blush - it has excellent pigmentation and lasting power, as well as a very soft texture

Estee Lauder- Witty Peach
Estee Lauder Witty Peach -This is an ombre blush going from gold to peach. It has a satin finish with no shimmer. It leaves a lovely sheen on the skin. I like to wear this blush along the cheekbones with Bella Bamba layered on top towards the front of the cheekbone.

Benefit- Bella Bamba
Benefit Bella Bamba -I debated whether or not to include this as it is discontinued - but I love to wear it in spring and summer, especially layered over Witty Peach. This is a shimmery pink blush, it has a soft texture and an excellent pigmentation. There is some fall out with this blush so just make sure you tap off the excess before applying to your face. This blusher is still available on Amazon and eBay.

Tarte- Blissful
Tarte Blissful - This is a matte peachy coral blush - it has excellent pigmentation and will last for about 8 hours without fading.

Clinique Peach Pop
Clinique Peach Pop- This is a peach shade, there is no shimmer in this blush but its finish leaves a gorgeous sheen on the skin. This blush has excellent last power, great colour payoff and it has an extremely soft smooth texture (not powdery at all).
Peach Pop and Blissful look very similar when swatched - however, the Clinique blush has a sheen to it and has a softer texture, whereas Blissful is matte and isn't as soft. They are both lovely long lasting peach shades. Clearly no one needs both of these!

Chanel- Rose Petal
Chanel Rose Petal - This is a sheer but buildable blush - it's a light rosey pink shade. I can see glitter particles through the blush in the pan, but the glitter is virtually undetectable when applied to the face. It leaves a lovely sheen on the skin. There is no need to apply highlighter with this blush, it has great lasting power and wears evenly.

Marc Jacobs - Obsessed
Marc Jacobs Obsessed Blush- This is a peachy pink shade. It's a sheer but bulidable blusher. If you examine it closely there is a small amount of tiny gold shimmer in it, however once applied to the face I can't see any of the shimmer. Instead it leaves a sheen on the skin. It's long lasting and wears evenly.

  9. Gorgeous blush choices! I love Benefit Bella Bamba, I had no idea it had been discontinued! I've been after Nars Deep Throat for some time now, just wish I had the money for it :( Have you tried any ELF blushes? They are so cheap, and are actually really great blushes!
