What are your favorite blushes for spring?

It’s blush time for Top Ten Tuesday. There are so many amazing blushes from low end to extremely high end. It’s easy to covet blush we don’t have but it’s a little disconcerting to open a drawer and find it crammed with blush. Does that stop me? No but I’m getting better. Here are 7 of my favorite blushes that I’ll be wearing this spring and 3 that are on a wishlist. What are your favorites? — Marcia
1425854102_rapture-resizeRITUEL DE FILLE in RAPTURE is the first of my wishlist blush. My blog partner had the opportunity to review this beautiful cream blush ($24) and it is so up my alley. I love this gorgeous pink and I love cream blush. Gloss48 picked a winner!

1425853994_0607845055037NARS ADORATION DUAL INTENSITY BLUSH ($45) has been on my wishlist since they were first announced. I love the sparkling baby pink and shimmering hot pink. Of all Nars’ blushes I know this is the one that would get the most use.
1425853888_62d56e5f-ce6e-4e12-9b1f-a87bf8e9c73a_90120.pngPAULA’S CHOICE BLUSH IT ON CONTOUR PALETTE seems to have it all. 4 blush shades, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter. At $36 the price is right.The blush shades are Delicate Coral (vibrant peach), Peony (light to medium muted pink), Dusty Rose (medium pink with a hint of coral), and Soft Mauve (rich, medium berry-pink). The highlighter is Pearl and has a luminescent quality while the Bronzer is a warm brown. This is probably the next item I’d buy.

1425853814_head-over-heels-compact_2MAKEUP GEEK HEAD OVER HEELS powder blush ($9.99 pan, $12.99 compact). I have a few of the Makeup Geek blushes and they are packed with pigment. Head over Heels is the lightest of them all, it’s a soft bubblegum pink with a little shimmer. Great price and quality.
1425853732_2275337__detail_?1425853732L’OREAL VISIBLE LIFT BLUR BLUSH ($12.99) is available in 3 shades though I found it nearly impossible to locate in stores. Luckily Meijers had this in Soft Peach along with a $2 coupon so I scooped it up. The texture is very silicone like so it may not work for some people but I’m enjoying it. It uses an opti-blur technology and contains anti-aging benefits. I’m happy that it’s not fragranced. Soft Peach is a pinky peach and a lovely spring shade.

1425853644_chateau-cheeks-cream-blush-flirt-opencpt-.08oz-72dpiPUR MINERALS CHATEAU CHEEK CREAM BLUSH in FLIRT ($18) has stolen my heart. This cool pink that leans toward the blue side of the spectrum wears wonderfully, glides on, and dries down to a perfect finish. I love the blush in Coy too but Flirt is spring in a compact.
1425853584_secret-admirer_2MAKEUP GEEK BLUSH IN SECRET ADMIRER is the perfect spring blush. It’s a matte orchid that is packed with pigment. I keep a powder puff nearby since it can be intense but that intensity means it’s going to last all day. If I had to pick one MUG blush Secret Admirer would be the one.
1425853513_2268213__detail_?1425853513TARTE CHEEK STAIN in Blushing Bride ($24) is another pink favorite. The tarte cheek stains are unique in many ways and all the colors are gorgeous but it’s Blushing Bride that I’m currently craving for warmer weather.

1425853435_2264082__detail_?1425853435IT COSMETICS VITALITY BLUSH STAIN in Radiant in Rose ($24) is probably the most long lasting of any blush. It’s true to its name as a blush stain. It’s loaded with anti-aging ingredients and anti-oxidants. I love everything from IT Cosmetics and this blush stain is an example why. (Available at Ulta)
1425853344_tarina-tarantino-parasol-openTARINA TARANTINO DOLLSKIN BLUSH in PARASOL ($25) shouldn’t be a surprise to Beauty Info Zone readers. I chose it as my favorite blush of 2014 and it continues into 2015. I love this pinky peach shade more than any blush in my collection.

  1. No I think I need to try Tarte Cheek Stain!

  2. I’m not familiar with Rituel de Fille but I love cream blush, so that one and the Pur Minerals appeal to me from those on your list. I’ve wearing Jordana Blush Sticks, my go-to favorite cream blush from Stila, and I still love the How Do You Like Them Apples cream blush palette from theBalm

  3. I have the IT Cosmetics blush in Radiant Rose. It’s pretty. My favorite spring blush includes pinks, peaches and orange tones.

  4. I’m watching a Youtube video now on the NARS blushes!!! I can’t wait to try them!

  5. I have a Rituel De Fille blush in Desire and it is soooo pretty! It swatches very different than it looks on my cheeks and I am in love with it. I need the new NARS blushes. I love their regular formula, time to try the new one.
