Blushes I LOVE ~ To The Moon And Back!

"Mamma never loved her much, and Daddy never keeps in touch. 
That's why she shies away from human affection." 
~ To The Moon And Back, Savage Garden.
Presenting the only blushes I really use & am very attached to....
[Clockwise starting from the leopard print box]: 
Benefit Coralista ~ If you've been reading my blog forever, you must know how much I love this blush. This is the one blush I want to repurchase even though the first one is not even close to finishing. If it wasn't so darn pricey, I'd go buy a new box just to look at & smell (because it is scented, and mine has lost it). You should have seen the husband's face when I said this =D . Price ~ £23.50 in UK = Rs.2218.
MAC Bite Of An Apple (Matte) ~ Bite.Of.An.Apple. Say it slowly, and you'll feel a little wicked, like Snow White's Evil Queen herself. But there's nothing evil about the blush shade, it's one of the most amazing coral blushes I've ever seen. This is a Limited Edition that came out with MAC Venomous Villains Collection. Price: Rs.1210.
MAC Fleur Power (Satin) ~ This is my oldest most-used blush. It's my go-to blush when I'm confused what to use. It sits in that perfect place between pink & coral, and that's what makes it so reachable. Price: Rs.1150.
Lakmé Cheek Chromatic Baked Blush in Day Blushes ~ Swatches below will prove how it holds its own beside Benefit & MAC. More photos & I wore it here. Price: Rs.550.
MAC Cream Soda Betty Blush (Satin) ~ It may look too pale, but it shows up beautifully when applied. Medium peach when layered. Also a Limited Edition that came out with MAC Archie's Girls CollectionPrice: Rs.1544.


*Some of the prices might have increased now.
L-R: Benefit Coralista, MAC Bite Of An Apple, MAC Fleur Power, Lakmé  Day Blushes, MAC Cream Soda
L-R: Benefit Coralista, MAC Bite Of An Apple, MAC Fleur Power, Lakmé  Day Blushes, MAC Cream Soda

In the pics is Real Techniques Blush Brush, which is what I use to apply blush these days, and I really like how soft it is. Shown here.

If you prefer Cream Blushes, some of my favorites posted here.  



Enjoy your weekend! I started watching a new TV show, The Fall, a psychological thriller about a family man who's a serial killer & a female detective (played by Scully from The X Files), and the pilot made me want to watch more. If it doesn't hook me after 3 eps, I'm moving on to Top Of The Lake.

P.S: So overwhelmed by all the wonderful comments & love on the Best Beauty Blog Award post & Facebook Page. I'm feeling very grateful, and will be replying to all the comments bit by bit. Thanks again, everyone! ♥

  8. the blushes are amazing and I have just started using Bite of an apple for bridals and its amazing...Corallista is a great highlighter for camera and photography though...I have to still venture into Fleur Power but with MAC Pro blushers on sale, this will have to wait a bit.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
