THREE IN PINK: BUDGET BLUSHES FOR A FRESH SUMMER LOOK

THREE IN PINK: BUDGET BLUSHES FOR A FRESH SUMMER LOOK

Hello, everyone!

When it comes to blushes pink is my favorite color: pink, hot pink, light pink, champagne pink, baby pink, bright pink…You could find a hundred shades of pink and I would love them all.  It’s the color that makes my face fresh and bright and because of my fair skin, it’s never too much, no matter what the season is. So, when I found these pink blushes all under $10, I couldn’t resist! Wanna know them?

You may think that a creamy blush it’s not the best choice for summer when the heat is really high. Well, I thought exactly the same when I first took this blush in my hands but I must admit I was wrong. First thing first, the package is amazing! It’s a round box (small enough for your little summer clutch) which contains two shades suitable for cheek and lips. The formula is very soft and I need just a small amount in order to have the desired color.  This balm blush is enriched with jojoba oil so besides its candy smell is very moisturizing.

Catrice Cosmetics: Multi Matte Blush/Love, Rosie

This blush along with an eyeshadow palette (Nude Blossoms) are my first buys from Catrice Cosmetics. Truth to be told, I have chosen these products because I loved its packages and its colors! Never heard much or read any reviews for them. There are 4 different shades in this blush but they are all so well combined. I love applying this soft powder blush with one of my big blush brushes and usually, I use it for my morning makeup for a fresh, youthful and matte look.

pink-budget-blushesBourjois: Little Round Pot Blush/Rose Frisson

This is really a small gem! I love the package, pocket-sized, but with a built-in mirror and a little brush inside. The scent of rose is fascinating and reminds me the days when I was a teenager. My aunt had a wonderful makeup collection and many Bourjois products. I was exploring them, really curious to try some for the very first time. Whenever I open this mini blush my mind goes back to these happy, innocent years. Well now, this powder blush applies so nicely and easy and blends very well. The pigmentation is really nice so I don’t have to use a lot of it. There is a just small amount of shimmer in it but using a good quality brush the result is fresh, natural and joyful. This Bourjois blush is my favorite one among the other two.

What is your favorite blush? Which color do you prefer? Let us know in the comments below. As always, thank you for visiting and have a great day!

    I agree, pink shades are the best and look lovely throughout the year. I love them all and will keep in mind for future – thanks for the tips!

    These look amazing! And can I just say that you take the best flat lays? Seriously, they’re perfect!

    • June 30, 2017 / 1:07 am

      I am glad you liked them! Thank you so much for your comment, i feel really flattered! They are my very first pictures with my new DSLR, trying hard to make them bright and beautiful.

    Years ago I bought the Bourjois one in the same shade. I must have gotten a bad one because it had no payoff whatsoever. I’ve seen lots of bloggers rave about it, that’s why I’m pretty sure mine was old or something. Even when my sister bought one, worked just fine. I did scratch the top layer off eventually and from that moment on it worked beautifully. 🙂

      I guess it depends on the brush too. I use a good one from Zoeva and the color is the expected one! Glad you managed to find the way to make it work for you.

  7. June 27, 2017 / 7:06 pm

    Oh my goodness all of these look beautiful! I hardly never use blush but if I do, I’m going for something super light shade.

    • June 30, 2017 / 1:12 am

      Thank you Sophia, Bourjois is really great!

    I also have a thing for pink and white also. Thought I was too girly for pink.
    The blushes are nice. I love them!

      Glad you liked them! Thank you for stopping by!

    I’m a nut for pink blush too! I’ve been eyeing the Adore Me and I think I may need to pull the trigger on it.

    • June 30, 2017 / 1:14 am

      Yes, give it a try, it’s really wonderful for cheek and for lips as well.

  10. June 27, 2017 / 9:17 pm

    Wow, they look amazing! Thanks for sharing! I’m actually looking for a new blush as mine is kind of old and I’m in urgent need of a new one 🙂

    I really like the cheek tint! I love pink blushes too because they look perf on me! I love all the products, and how you styled them 🙂 http://www.clairebearblogs.com

      Thank you so much Claire! Pink is really a wonderful color for pale/fair skin.

  12. June 28, 2017 / 12:06 am

    I LOVE blush and those shades are so pretty! I tend to lean towards powdered blushes but that cheek tint might change my mind.

    • June 30, 2017 / 1:16 am

      Yes, it’s a good alternative and can be used in cheek and lips too.

  13. June 28, 2017 / 1:23 am

    Okay, first of all i am OBSESSED with your flat lays and I know Maya said that above but you deserve to hear it again!!! And I would of never had the nerve to try a cream blush in the summer ! So glad you had a good payoff !

    • June 30, 2017 / 1:20 am

      Thank you so much for you kind and wonderful comments on my flat lays. Much appreciated, as i am trying really hard to make them beautiful and bright. As i wrote to Maya, i have recently bought my DSLR and yet, i need a lot to learn in order to use all the features in the best way.

  14. June 28, 2017 / 4:04 am

    Love your pictures! And really great suggestions. I’ve been trying desperately to improve my makeup skills so I’m really excited to try some of these . They look super summery!!

    Usually, I don’t put on any make-up on my face in the hot summer days for obvious reasons, but I’m ready to give a try to these wonderful products. I like more the Catrice Cosmetics package you presented here for a morning fresh and youthful look.

    • June 30, 2017 / 1:28 am

      They are all great suggestions and affordable, so why not give them a try?

  16. June 28, 2017 / 8:27 am

    I love when you find something pretty that doesn’t cost a lot.

  17. June 28, 2017 / 4:26 pm

    I’ve had my eye on the Bourjois blusher and am so happy it’s a decent one. Heading off to get one now 🙂

    Nice blog post and I also love pink blushes, because just like you I have super fair skin and it suits me the best. My favourite blush so far is Dandelion by Benefit, the powder one. But I’m curious to try the liquid one too. 🙂

  20. July 3, 2017 / 11:00 am

    I hear a lot of good things for Dandelion by Benefit and i would love to try too. Thank you for stopping by Nadine!
