Barely Blushed


Whether you're wearing a bold lip and don't want to look too over-the-top or you're going for a minimal makeup look, everyone needs a go-to blusher that adds a little 'something' but still looks really subtle. These are the ones that always do the trick for me...

Sleek Blush in Suede | £4.99 | This is a really lovely, affordable matte blusher that's perfect for a warm-toned minimal blusher look on my skin. It blends really nicely and the texture gives a true matte finish that wears well without being drying and the pigmentation level is perfect for everyday wear. The shade itself is a muted brown-peach nude tone.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso | £10 | Luminoso is a YouTube favourite with good reason! (Though I'm not very impressed at how much these blushers have gone up in price as of late...) It has a formula that rivals Hourglass's (which we'll get to later) as it's so soft and adds a natural, luminous flush of light peach to the cheeks. It's a subtle look on me, however I do think it could look a little ashy on deeper skin tones.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love | £25 | This well-loved blusher within my collection has a matte look on the cheeks, though it does have a very slight sheen in the pan. It's peach and nude in colour but has slightly mauve undertones. The formula seems a little crumbly but I think that's what makes it apply to the skin so nicely. When I don't know what to wear or I'm in a rush I always reach for this because I just know it'll go with any look.

Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk | $18 | This really is a unique liquid-cream blusher formula that really does give that watercolour wash of pigmentation. You only need a small amount and I just dab this out with my fingers for an incredibly natural look. It goes on smoothly and lasts pretty well, even on my combination skin. The shade is a peachy-brown nude that's perfect for when you want a hint of colour without overtly looking as though you have blusher on.

Tarte 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed | $29 | This is such a hyped-up product and I can totally see why! It seems to suit quite a lot of different skin tones as well; I've seen people much paler than me who also swear by it. It's quite a true mauve colour that manages to avoid that ashy/washed-out/grey look on my skin tone. This is one of the few proper matte blushers to make it into this post as I find so many of the formulas out there too difficult to work with (which kind of defeats the purpose of a quick and easy throw-on blusher) however this applies so evenly and lasts incredibly well on me.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure | £32 | I love the Hourglass blusher formula; it's actually more pigmented than you'd expect but the way it sits on the skin is just so natural! It gives that glow without any glitter at all so you're cheeks just look so radiant. The shade itself is a sort of mauve-y/plum tone, which is perfect as it brings colour to the face as opposed to some other mauve colours you come across that wash you out. It's so quick and easy to apply and really long-lasting too. It just adds that little hint of colour without stealing the show - swatches really don't do it justice!

Laura Geller Baked Blush n Brighten in Roseberry | £23 | When I want a pinky option or something that will work with a berry lip - this is a great option. It has a baked formula so there's a slight sheen running through this subtle pinky-purple tone. It blends really easily and applies evenly so it's perfect for adding a flush of colour in a few quick seconds.

  4. I've recently got out of the habit of wearing blush and I'm wanting to find a new one to start wearing it again, so great timing for this blog post! I really love the 'Exposed' blush from Tarte but I'm just not sure I can warrant spending that much on a single blush! Great post though, thanks for writing!

  6. I am totally loving these blushes in your lineup and many of them will be my typical choice. I am still lusting after owning a single Hourglass Blush (I already have the palette) and it's totally true that they are more pigmented than they look. Thanks for sharing babes...xx

  11. The Glossier cloud paint looks so lovely! I'm really not a blush person but like a cream blush as they can look a bit more subtle. Can't wait for them to arrive in the UK!

  19. I haven't got any blusher in these subtle tones, and I really do need one! I'd use it for quick everyday looks. The Tarte blusher is my favourite shade of them all, it looks very autumnal - all that we need right now for the upcoming season!
