Tag: The Blush Addict Tag!

Brought to you by The Blush Queen! Yes, this tag has been long in waiting, I knew from the moment I saw it that I was going to do it, no question about that. I've been given the name or called 'Blush queen' by several lovely ladies in the blogging community and I accept the title graciously. I do not have the largest, most varied or interesting blush collection however I'm pretty sure due to the fact that I'm known for my pretty flawless, sculpted and generous applications of blusher (as seen in my many FOTDs) that was how this name came about.

I'm going to be bloody honest. I could not stick to single answers for most of the questions. I mean, I wear all my blushes and love them all and it's impossible for me to just use one for more than a few days consecutively. Please take the time to see this tag done by the ladies from AngelicBetrayal, Sleep and Water, Ad Astra and Status.Chlo!

Continue below for the tag!
Tag: The Blush Addict Tag!
1. What colour blush suits you the most?

In the past I would have just said pinks but now it's also warm neutrals! I love how youthful, fresh and pretty rose pinks look on me but also warm nudes make me look sculpted and are so flattering.

2. Pressed/cream/loose blush?

PRESSED ALL THE WAY. I've dabbled a tiny bit with a few creams and loose blushes but at the end of the day I will always purchase pressed blush. At the moment I am best at applying them and find they last through the heat and humidity in Singapore!

This is pretty much 95% of my blushes...literally almost everything I own blush wise is pressed!

3. Favourite shimmery blush?


Oooo…hard question! There are four shimmery blushes that I love…and all are pink! Sleek's Mirrored Pink, The Bakery's Lollipop blush, Bourjois pot blush in Rose de Jaspe and Mac's Mineralized blush in Gentle!

4. Favourite matte blush?

I have three picks for this...AND ONE PALETTE. Keep in mind 90% of my blushes are shimmery. Sleek's Suede which is a gorgeous warm peachy terra-cotta, Catrice Rose Royce and Canmake's PW31! 

Besides these three singles I picked up a super affordable and amazing quality blush palette while in Indonesia by the brand 'Make Over'. All the blushes in the palette are matte or have a tiny satin glow and the colors are not only gorgeous but they are so creamy and look and apply amazingly!

5. Favourite cream blush?

None. BUT…honorable mentions are the ONLY TWO that I currently own. Cupcake from Sleek's i-candy blush palette and Amazing Cheek and Lip stick from Addiction! These two are super crazy pigmented and would work from light to deep skintones. 

The dual purpose stick from Addiction (high end japanese make up brand) is freaking amazing on the lips and that's how I use it mostly (although gorgeous on the cheeks too) I don't plan on buying any more cream blushes for like...forever...maybe in the future when I'm not in such a humid country!

6. Favourite drugstore blush?

THIS IS HARD. Again, I have multiple answers! Catrice for their super wearable, soft buttery blushes. Canmake for their pink-peach shades that give the skin the softest glow of color and Sleek for their amazing pigmentation, range of colors, finishes and size of product!

Canmake blushes: Soft, a bit powdery but they give very soft diffused looking natural blush look!

My sleek blushes, amazing quality, colors and finishes for such an affordable UK drugstore brand!

7. Favourite high-end blush?

Marc Jacobs Shameless blush in Rebellious. Not only is the color a brilliant bright deep raspberry but it gives the skin the most amazing slightly translucent glowing quality that you can only experience in person. It almost feels like a pressed super firm mousse and swatches like a cream without any powder like feel. Also, this is one out of my only TWO 'high end' blushes.

8. Favourite bright blush?

Sleek's Flamingo and Marc Jacob's Rebellious! They honestly are almost dupes in terms of color. Flamingo being slightly creamier in color in swatches, although in the pan they are dupes. They both do an amazing job of giving the cheeks a gorgeous feminine juicy brightness!

9. Biggest blush disappointment/regret?
Hard to say to be honest. I've never really regretted a blush purchase. The only blushes that I actually regret are the ones that aren't as pigmented or are too brown in tone. 

An example would be Bourjois pot blush in Santal because despite it being a gorgeous color, if I'm not tanned it looks like brown clay on my face. Same goes for some of the brown shades from my Zoeva Sun Power blush palette and my Make Over palette.

Bourjois pot blush in Santal
Bourjois pot blush in Santal, it's a beautiful reddish brown with very fine golden shimmer. It can work on lighter skintones but only if a small amount is applied, anymore than a touch and it looks like a reddish copper splotch!
10. Best blush packaging?

Hmmm. Marc Jacob's blush came to mind but Kiko's limited edition Sun Bronzing Blush is real pretty to me. It's not the smallest but comes in lovely matte antique gold case with a textured flower like design on the compact cover. I don't have any 'fancy' packaged blushes so this takes the cake!

  2. Omg!!! This is blog post I never knew I wanted from you <3 I'm way behind on everything... and started binge buying blushes and so I might not be able to do this tag until maybe in the next few weeks.

    I also really want some Clinique Cheek Pop blushes! They're so gorgeous.

  5. Hahaha yay The Blush Queen finally did the tag! :) Thoroughly enjoyed reading your responses and more importantly, taking a good peek at your blush collection! You have an amazing shade selection and I love that you know what works for you. The nude blushes you swatched in particular are so beautiful! Your application is always flawless and blushes look so sculpting and beautifying on you, plus I love that you don't shy away from colour! :)

  6. I've been waiting for you to do this tag - haha! You certainly have a stunning collection of so many bright shades! Sleek is amazing, I have Pomegranate but don't wear it terribly often because it's such a bold shade! The Marc Jacobs blush looks so intense and amazing!

  8. Hail the queen! ;D I love that you didn't address yourself as a fiend or a fanatic (although nothing's wrong with them).
    Lovely of you for tagging me. I don't consider myself a big blush person (didn't wear blushes at all in my twenties) but would love to do this tag sometime. Thanks!
    MJ Shameless is just gorgeous, btw. :)

  9. OMG! This post gave me heart palpitations! And I definitely need some Catrice blushes in my life!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. AHHH! Your collection is to die for! Your FOTDs wouldn't be the same without a gorgeous blush on though :). I agree that those pinky neutrals suit you the best. As for me, some days I even skip blush (shock horror). Thank you so much for tagging me, and I will try and photograph my piddly blush collection soon :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. Great collection! I also love blush and either have a similar amount or possibly even more. The amazing thing is that we only have ONE overlapping blush between us: MAC Gentle! Clearly we both need to do a lot more blush shopping, lol. (P&J is also on my wish list!)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow Sharlynn!!! You have a huge blush collection! I can never distinguish so many shades of pink like you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my God, you have a wonderful collection of blushes!! No doubt your FOTDs are so pretty <3 I love wearing pink blushes with light shimmers, they give a gorgeous glow to the cheeks!!

    Have a great day honey!

  14. Wow, now that is a LOT of blush :D Definitely an addict ;)

  15. (Don't know if I comment went though or got eaten up)

    YES, THE TAG THAT'S PRETTY MUCH MEANT FOR YOU. I do have to say though...WE'RE PRACTICALLY OPPOSITES IN TERMS OF TASTE IN BLUSH. Most of my blushes are matte, as I don't really like shimmery blushes, and I don't even think I own a warm brown/nude shade! Not a big fan of pinks either, but I think I might've lusted over that Marc Jacobs blush a while back! Might have to swatch again in store, but I've got a Paul and Joe blush, and I think they're just 'meh'. Milani does a matte raspberry blush that looks similar to Marc Jacobs called 'Bella Rosa' and I've been lusting after that since it came out...ARGH, SO MANY BLUSHES ON THE 'WANT' LIST.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow! You have so many blushes! It's similar to me and my lipproduct addiction. Haha. I should definitively start to try some brown/nude blushes, your swatches look so pretty and I think the colir would suit my skin, too. Unfortunately, I only have a hand full of blushes so I cannot participate in the tag although it sounds fun and was fun to read, too!

  17. Daaaaamn, woman!!! You definitely are the blush queen! :D

  18. WOW!!!
    I don´t think I have ever seen this much blush in one post :D
    I am the same when it comes to lipsticks and eye shadows ;)
    AMAZING post though :)
    Unfortunately I do not use blush that very often so I do not really have a favorite right now ;)

  19. WOAHHHH! BLUSH GALORE! Haha! I don't have a lot of blushes but I will definitely do this post with Liz! Will let you know! I enjoyed reading this!

  20. That's such crazy blush porn haha
    I only use pressed powder blushes, cannot stand cream or loose powder!!

  21. Holy wow, you totally are a blush fiend, lol! That's amazing. I think blush is the thing I buy the least of, actually!

    ReplyDelete
  22. H five babe, I am a blush addict too. I also love to try out different kinds of blushes. My fav colour has to be peaches and corals.

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's an insane blush collection! Blushes are some of my favourite things to buy as well. I'd have to say Hourglass and Tarte are my top two favourites.

  24. Thanks so much for tagging me, Sharlynn! Your blush collection is to die for! I especially love your warm nude blushes. So pretty and right up my alley too! For cream blushes, you should try the Make Up For Ever HD Blushes sometime :)

  25. GIRL HAVE I BEEN WAITING TO READ THIS!! YASSSS!!
    Wow what a collection, you have just added like 3 blushes onto my wishlist that I didn't even know I wanted.
    I love all the bright and intense pinks you always wear, I wish I could pull it off! Really love the look of Sleek Pomegranate, the Marc Jacobs Rebellious and Mac Gentle!!
