Blush is something I don’t usually spend a lot of money on. There are so many cheaper brands that do great quality and highly pigmented blushes that I don’t see the need to splash out. 

If you read my previous post where I talk about my favourite high street eye products and how much I love Sleek makeup, it won’t come as a surprise that they’re also one of my favourite brands when it comes to blushers. Once again they have an array of colours to choose from, from pinks, to corals, mattes and shimmers, individual blushes and they also have their Blush By 3 palettes which are really convenient for travel. I’ve had some of their blushes for a couple of years now because a little goes such a long way, they’re really pigmented so you only need the smallest amount to get a nice flush of colour. Rimmel also have great blushers that are perfect to carry around with you on an everyday basis because of how small they are. My personal favourite is the shade Santa Rose, it’s a subtle pink that adds a healthy glow to the cheeks without look like I have too much on.

I have raved about this product before, but I had to mentioned it in this little series because it’s definitely my favourite powder ever, not just high street, but in general. I use the Soap & Glory Kick Ass powder to set my concealer and the effect it gives is so, so beautiful, it makes my skin look airbrushed and flawless in photography. Seriously! 

Lastly, I finally picked up the NEXT Highlighting Chubby Stick in Stardust Glow and haven’t stopped using it since. Now, I know that you can’t get this in Boots or Superdrug, but it’s only £8 and it’s one of my favourite highlighters ever! Bold statement considering I haven’t had it for that long, but some products you just fall in love with immediately and this was one of them. It has a rose gold tint and the tiniest amount of shimmer, I mean tiny, but somehow makes the cheekbones look ‘wet’ almost, and really adds a lot of light to the face.

Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate that I finally posted on Friday? I’ve been quite good at sticking to my blogging schedule, but somehow I always miss Friday’s post. Well, not this week, ha! :)

    1. It is isn't it? Really bothers me that people don't talk about it more, it deserves much more hype :) x

  3. I love the Rimmel blushes! They are so easy to blend and last a fair amount of time!

  4. I remeber Alix from I Covet Thee was (or still is) a huge fan of Santa Rose.. I can see why, it's such a pretty color. I've been wanting to try a lot of Soap & Glory products but they don't sell them where I live, hopefully I'll get my hands on that Kick Ass Powder soon :)
