The Collector: I'm a Blush Fiend

The last time I shared about my makeup-craze which is My Addiction was last year. Wow! That was quite a while because my collection has been growing ever since. This has been one of the 'most-requested-post' from everyone. It took me a while to brave myself to share you my blush collection. (*wink*) 

As you can see, I am indeed a Blush Collector. Yes, a Blush Fiend indeed. 




Blush has always been my favorite makeup product. Why? I highly think that their packaging and colors attracts me the most. I'm a sucker of pretty packaging. Aren't you? I actually had a few blushers that I left out from this pic. Sorry dude! You'll just stay in my makeup bag ok? Haha!

Over the left side of the picture above, you'll see blushers with amazingly pretty and cute packaging. This includes brands from Jill Stuart, Etude House, Physician Formula and Majolica Majorca. 




Those little pink pots (on the top right) were Etude House Princess Etoinette Blush. It's so pretty that I even bought some backups during the sale period. Weeks ago, I added Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette into my collection. I guess I need a bigger space to fit her in my drawer.  


In case you have been wondering, what’s in the silver- black lace packaging. It is Jill Stuart Blush Blossom from their Christmas Set - Secret Teaser Collection. Check out my post on it.  



I'm gonna say that Jill Stuart Blusher win hands down on being the prettiest and princessy packaging ever. Their blushers are pretty expensive but it’s worth the amount you spent. So if you ever travel to HK, Taiwan or Japan make sure you get yourself to Jill Stuart counter. I bet with all my money that you won’t go back empty handed. (I don’t have a lot to bet :p)



As you see, I don’t own a lot of blushers from MAC. I don’t know why I don’t fancy them as much as I fancy MSF (Mineralized Skin Finish). I find MSF are so much prettier than their normal blusher and it can be use as highlight and bronzer too. My favorite MSF from MAC is none other than Stereo Rose. I regretted that I didn’t managed to get any backup for it. (I couldn’t though, it was sold out pretty fast a day after it launched). So now I try very hard not to use it though I love it so much! Call me insane. Lol!


Moving towards the right, I have a few blushers from Sleek Makeup and NARS. I reviewed and swatched a few of the Sleek Blusher here. And in order to send this to a new owner, I decided to put them on my blog sale too. 

Despite of their rubbery packaging, I really like NARS blusher a lot. Did you check out their latest collection from Guy Bourdin? It’s calling my name once again. Oh! I almost forgot that I had depotted my NARS Deep Throat and Laguna blush into my Z-Palette as well. That explains why my NARS collection looks bit sad. O_o


The only full-sized blusher I have from Benefit Cosmetics is Coralista. The others were all in deluxe sized and that’s more than enough for me to test the product. Take example, Bella Bamba (beside Coralista), I used it a lot but I still don’t see it hitting the pan. Hmmm…

And I have 2 Tarte Blushers!! Check them out at Sephora Malaysia / Singapore now! Though honestly, I feel they're a bit overpriced. But you may just swatch them and get them online like me! They’re very pretty indeed. Check out my review on Tarte Exposed Blush here.

Lastly, there are some random blushers from Borjouis, Candydoll, Smashbox, RMK, Milani, Revlon, The Balm (highlight) and Everyday Mineral (the small pots).

You might have some thoughts of why I did not get those counter brand blush such as Dior, Chanel, Guerlain etc. Probably because the SA pulls me off a lot. I think I don’t look rich enough for them to serve me. :'( That’s why I don’t go to counter and swatch them. But…..I have my eyes on Guerlain Meteorites now. That will be my list the next time I am flying off. It's always a good choice to shop cosmetics and skincare at duty-free airport =P


So, now I know where my hard-earned money goes. Can you count how many blushers I have? The last I counted was 55 and I lost count. =p

Are you a blush fiend like me?
My weakness is definitely blusher.
So what's your beauty product weakness?

FancyFrancyFash said...

omg!! you have every blush everrr! They all look gorgeous too! NARS seems to be a favorite for most people when it comes to blush, I don't have any from them yet but this post has definitely tempted me to go out and buy some soon. Do you have one blush that you seem to always wear? I only have like 7 total but I seem to always grab for one in particular which I have already hit pan on lol. I need to branch out more with my blushes like you :)

GIGlove!

Wiida said...

babe,is Nars blush holiday set from Guy Bourdin already in Nars Malaysia? I didnt see the collection before. Has it arrived Malaysia?

Neja said...

i dont know why the limited edition of NARS blusher guy bourdin is not really my cup of tea. been swatching it on my face (cheek) but truth hurts, the colors cannot be seen at all. maybe im too dark or fair. nah...anyway, really adores your blusher collection. love it!!

plue said...

i will not count my blush stash because i know I will die if I ever count them. too many of them! LOL. blushes are my vice, just like nail polish. hahahahah. and I agree with Tarte being really overpriced here! >.<

Glowing Skin-Why it’s Important and How to Obtain it without Spending a Dime

Your skin is one of the first things that people tend to notice about you, so taking care of it is very important because your skin actually says a lot about your lifestyle. For example, if you meet someone whose skin is tough, leathery, and well beaten by the sun, you can pretty well assume that they work outside regularly. This will also tell you that they don’t take care of their skin by protecting it from harmful ultraviolet rays. Unless you want your story literally written on your face, you will need to unlock the secret to getting and sustaining healthy, glowing skin.
