Spring Time Blushers – Rose Gold, Shimmer & Coral

Spring Time Blushers – Rose Gold, Shimmer & Coral

Only six more days until we hit the end of Winter!  Can I get a hell yeah?!  Although sadly, I think Mother Nature is teasing us with the weather in Melbourne, these last few days.  Bright and clear in the morning then come school pick-up time, we get cold, dark and dreary!  But that doesn’t mean I cannot start dreaming planning for Spring.  On this week’s beauty segment I’m featuring 3 blushers from 3 different brands to ring in Spring.

While Winter usually equates to more darker, berry like shades, I love to see shades of coral, flecks of pearlascent shimmery finishes and a soft pink to complement Spring.

Housed in a sleek, black packaging, this little blush might look dark in the compact but, when swatched seem to be pretty soft, making it perfect for Spring and possibly even Summer.

The shade I received to try is Rose Gold, which from what I’ve heard on the grapevine is a dupe of the Nars Orgasm!  I mean, just look at the packaging even, which I dare say is as close to the original – except for maybe the shape of the compact.

When it comes to colour payoff, I was surprised to find that the blush didn’t look as strong as it did in the compact itself.  Compared to the other two blushers, this one has a slightly peachier tone and had a very powdery and matte finish.

EDITED: I applied Sleek’s Rose Gold on my cheeks today and while it is still a peachy tone, it definitely ISN’T matte!  I loved the shimmery finish it has after I’ve swirled my brush in this blush before application.  It’s slightly similar to the Mirenesse Marble Mineral blush in Carrara Coral but with a bit more colour.  Goes to show how swatching something doesn’t necessarily show the actual effect of a product!

*Mirenesse Marble Mineral Blush (Carrara Coral) rrp$58.27

This particular blush by Mirenesse actually gave me quite a surprise!  While it might not look like much – except the marbling effect does look gorgeous in the compact – but once I swatched the blush, I was amazed by the pearlascent sheen it creates!  The shade might be called Carrara Coral, but I think it’s more of a soft golden peach shade.

Because of the gorgeous sheen, I think this would go well on its own without having to add any highlighters, which was what I did in the image below.  In fact, the Carrara Coral would make a great highlighter to create that strobing effect.

It gave a nice highlight on my cheeks, and yes, you can’t really see the colour, but it’ll make a great everyday shade that gives you a nice radiant glow.

*Wet N Wild Blush (Berry Shimmer) rrp$8.64

I first discovered Wet N Wild when I was in the U.S, through some other beauty bloggers.  It’s a drugstore brand that is really inexpensive there.  While the colour I chose was called Berry Shimmer, it actually looked a lot more like a deep coppery pink shade in real life.

Even though it’s a drugstore brand, the blush is highly pigmented giving you a nice, deep and rich colour payoff.  Definitely one to have on for that night-time Spring look or during the day when you want to add a bit more colour to your cheeks.
